The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 27
Chapter 27 . Really play
Stepping into July, Ningjiang became hotter and hotter.
The air conditioner on the second floor of the Phantom Animation has been turned on to its maximum, but it still cannot withstand the heat wave outside the window. In the meeting room, Xu Rui took a planning book and glanced at the Phantom Company employees underneath, and then at the Monthly Magazine sitting behind. “Juvenile Frontline” editor Li Ruoxuan.
“Everyone, we are going to undertake a comic adaptation animation project next. The original work is “Soul Eater” which is being serialized on “Monthly Youth Frontline”. I have already purchased this comic and put it on the shelf in the lounge. Everyone must be serious. Read the original work.”
After a pause, Xu Rui continued.
“It’s just that this adaptation is not a copy of the original work, but a front transmission painting produced with the consent of the original author. The specific plot outline is in the planning book in your hands. I only have one request.”
glanced at Li Ruoxuan, who was eager to make a fist, and Xu Rui spoke.
“That is everyone must keep the plot of this animation absolutely confidential.”
“Huh?” “Confidential…Isn’t this comic change?” “What do you mean?”
People who haven’t read the script are a little confused. Only Cheng Kewei who has read the complete script like this nodded thoughtfully.
“The first episode of this animation is cut from an official organization that uses high-tech means to eliminate spirits. The long-haired girl riding a motorcycle and the teenager who seems to have a cruel background using double guns. They and other members can easily solve it. The evil spirit that the army could not defeat, but encountered a new crisis. Just after the difficult resolution, a woman in a short skirt school uniform appeared and cleanly beheaded everyone.”
Cheng Kewei summarized the plot of the first episode. It can be seen that the beginning of the first episode is actually quite cliché, but the reversal at the end of the first episode is surprising, because no one would have thought that the person who looked the most like the protagonist would directly lead the story. convenient.
“Wait, if you look at it this way, the second episode is the same. Another group of spirit removal organizations appeared to eliminate the crisis. In the end, they also encountered the school uniform girl, who was almost completely wiped out. Who is the protagonist of this comic… .”
Tao Ran flipped through the script in the planning book and muttered.
He has never seen the original work of “Soul Eater”, but judging from the script in his hand, this comic is quite good to play. Not only is it different from ordinary hot-blooded boy comics, it won’t die for a long time, so it’s easy to post it, and it’s all at the beginning. The ending of Mie is also quite shocking. As a senior death house, he should have seen it long ago and was impressed, right?
“If you look at the third episode later, you will find that the first two episodes are the plot behind. The real story starts from the third episode. While removing the demon after school, on the other hand it is the fresh daily life of the two girls, but the plot at the beginning is still circling. In the minds of the audience, people are curious about what caused the originally beautiful daily life to turn into such a cruel ending.”
Although Guo Weiren is the oldest in it, he has been working in an animation company anyway, and he has an understanding of the emerging animation themes in the past few years. However, this kind of expression still makes him a little excited, and he is looking forward to the reaction of the audience. .
“For this reason, in order to control the emotions of the audience in the first three episodes, we need to pretend from the beginning of the promotion.”
Xu Rui saw that everyone had basically seen the beginning of the plot, and said.
“From the official website to all kinds of publicity, we will tell everyone from the beginning that the stories we tell about the high-tech anti-spiritual organization deceive the audience to the maximum extent.”
Hearing Xu Rui’s words, everyone was silent for a while, seeming to imagine what would happen if Xu Rui’s plan was followed by the day when the animation was broadcast.
“In this case, the topic may be very high. After all, after watching anime for so many years, it is unprecedented to start with an animation that allows the protagonists to be promoted to receive lunch.”
Cheng Kewei said that although there are many animations that use flashbacks, the first episode shows the audience the scene of the final battle to create a sense of expectation, but the protagonist is directly drawn, and the second episode has a whole change of people. It is really unprecedented.
As a producer, he is the hub for contacting all links. Naturally, he must also take into account the reactions of investors and audiences. There is no doubt that if the animation of “Soul Eater” is really played in this way, the topic will be raised. It is unprecedented, this is an excellent way to mobilize the audience’s emotions.
“How about the opinions from the magazine?”
Strictly glanced at the little girl behind him, no matter how she looked at it, she felt that the editor in charge seemed to be at the age of a college student, not very reliable.
“The editor-in-chief agreed to this proposal. He said that anyway, it’s a, uh, street-smashing work, and it won’t get worse no matter how you play it.”
Li Ruoxuan smiled helplessly, and then added.
“As for the production committee, they thought that their investment was in vain. Now some people are willing to take over and pay for it. Naturally, they have no opinion and will not interfere with the creation here.”
The production committee is a production form developed by the industry a few years ago to share investment risks. Generally, the main planner is looking for investment, and multiple companies jointly invest in a work. The benefits of the work are also divided by each company according to the investment ratio. In this way, the cost of the planner’s failure is reduced. On the one hand, uukanshu.com also introduced more funds into the industry, which is a commonly used production form.
Of course, with the development of the Internet, there are also some companies that choose self-financing production models to avoid investor interference in the production site. For example, Rainbow Media under Tomato Video Network, excluding several full-length comic adaptations, almost every season’s new animation All of them are wholly invested by Tomato Video Network and broadcast exclusively on Tomato Video Network, and the profits are overflowing.
This time the animation of “Soul Eater: Zero”, phantom film also has investment, which accounts for about 21% of it. Although not much, it is always out of the ranks of pure part-time work.
“Soul Eater: Zero” is currently tentatively broadcast on the Internet. A website called Chengkong Video Network in the production committee will be given priority to broadcast. This video network is a website controlled by New Frontline Media, so it will be added to the production. The committee, as to whether it will log on to other websites, it depends on the discussions between the various parties after the announcement is made.
The quotation for the broadcast rights of a twelve-episode animation for the season ranges from one million to several million. “The King of Thieves” is broadcast exclusively on Tomato Video. According to speculation, the quotation for one season is 7 million. The original title of “Zero” is unknown, and the production company is also the animation of the new company, and the price can only reach millions.
“If there is no problem, we will start the creation of “Soul Eater: Zero” from tomorrow. The goal is to play it in January next year. This will be the first animation after the reconstruction of the phantom animation. I hope everyone can take it seriously. ”
Xu Rui looked at everyone and said.
A few hours later, in the evening, Ningjiang City Magic Animation, “Monthly Youth Frontline”, and Chengkong Video Network’s Weibo updated a Weibo at the same time.
—”The animation production of the popular comic “Soul Eater” is confirmed, and the production company is Ningjiang City Phantom Animation Production Company.”
