The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 39
Chapter 39 .Competitors and signing meetings
The people sitting in front of Xu Rui should be people from other animation companies. Because most of the producers don’t show up, Xu Rui doesn’t know these people, and they probably didn’t recognize Xu Rui.
Hearing the name of Phantom Telecom, Xu Rui pricked his ears and listened quietly.
“Phantom, it seems to be making a comic change. I heard that I have found a lot of outsourcing companies. It seems that they are indeed understaffed.”
“Oh, I know, it’s from the Monthly Youth Frontline, right? It’s called…Soul Eater?”
“It’s Soul Eater. I’m curious about what kind of character the original Gothic Lolita artist will come up with. To be honest, I feel strange now that she will actually leave Mushroom Film and go to the phantom teleplay.”
“Is the schedule set? According to this rhythm, I am afraid that I will not be able to keep up with the January file. It is a bit too late for the April file, an embarrassing time.”
These people are discussing the new work of Phantom Electric, and there is nothing to look down on or ridicule, but the worries of being colleagues, probably because they have seen their own shadows.
Xu Rui wanted to talk, but the meeting was about to begin, so he had to give up.
The animation industry conference is not interesting. In addition to the official argument summing up the industry situation last year, it is a common content issue. Fortunately, the atmosphere of the conference is not too serious, and Xu Rui can sneak a glance at his mobile phone.
At the end of the one-and-a-half-hour meeting, Xu Rui was already a little sleepy. Instead of having a post-meeting meeting with other industry professionals, he was going to meet Yi Qianqian directly at the exhibition venue.
“Please wait a minute, this sir.”
At this time, Xu Rui was stopped by someone.
He turned his head and saw a man with an artistic atmosphere. His hair was slightly longer and he had a small twitch in the back of his head. He was thinner and dressed in a casual suit. He looked like a pop singer instead of an animator.
“Introduce yourself, I’m Wu Yi, the director of Rainbow Media, you are Xu Rui of Phantom Telecom?”
He handed over a business card with the information written on it.
“good for you.”
Xu Rui nodded.
He still knows this martial arts director. Rainbow Media’s gold medal director took only five years from the original artist to the performance and then to the director, and the director’s first work “Antarctic Cleaner” won the annual animation award that year. After a year, “Rebellious Livias” got the annual animation.
Now thirty years old, Wu Yi has become one of the hottest directors in the industry.
“Do you have time to chat, let’s find a place to sit.”
“Ah, I’m sorry, although I really want to learn from you, senior, but I have already made an appointment with someone.”
Xu Rui said embarrassedly.
“It’s okay, let’s leave a contact information, we will have the opportunity to eat together in the future.”
As he said, Wu Yi asked for Xu Rui’s cell phone number and recorded it, he said.
“I have watched “Voice of Stars”. Although all aspects are slightly immature, I saw something different from the current animation in this animation. I also heard that you refused the offer of Rainbow Media and started your own business. To be honest, I envy you very much.”
Xu Rui thought that Wu Yi was talking politely, but looking at his expression, he was indeed very sincere.
“It’s all from the past, I can tell you about it later when I have the opportunity.”
Wuyi half-talked and swallowed again, and he waved his hand.
“Go ahead, I am looking forward to your animation.”
Xu Rui left the hotel in the Convention and Exhibition Center a little hazy and entered the crowded venue.
The time was 11:50, and he quickly saw the huge signboard of the new frontline media, but after coming here, he did not find Iasa.
A large number of people gathered here, Xu Rui squeezed into the backstage with the staff ID, and saw Li Ruoxuan at a glance.
She is wearing a black short-sleeved T-shirt printed with the “Monthly Youth Frontline” logo. Perhaps because of the size, it seems to be a size smaller. Under the denim shorts are slender and white legs that make it difficult to remove. Looking at her, Li Ruoxuan stepped on a pair of white sneakers, looking youthful and sunny. She also had a staff card hanging on her chest. When she saw Xu Rui, she immediately burst into a vigorous smile.
“Xu Rui, here and here.”
Li Ruoxuan greeted Xu Rui to come over. Even though the extremely low temperature air-conditioning was on in the venue, there were still a few strands of hair around her ears sticking to her face because of sweat.
“What are so many people doing here?”
Xu Rui looked over. These people were all lining up, as if they were buying something.
“Hey, don’t you know? It’s now the signing event for Teacher Qiubuyu. It should have closed at 12 o’clock, but the readers are too enthusiastic, and Teacher Qiubuyu temporarily decided to sign for another half an hour.”
In the noisy venue, Li Ruoxuan raised her voice slightly.
“I really don’t know this.”
Xu Rui saw the front of the team. There was a young woman in Hanfu sitting there. She was petite and had a baby face. If it hadn’t been for Li Ruoxuan’s explanation, Xu Rui would have thought that she was a junior high school student.
“Teacher Qiubuyu is best at painting ancient style and strange themes. She is now serializing “A Book of Friends in Autumn” on “Margaret”, but it ranks among the top three popular works, both male and female readers like it very much!”
“Margaret” is a girl manga magazine under New Frontier Media and one of China’s top girl manga magazines. Xu Rui saw that there were also many girl manga posters in the booth, and he was able to rank among the best in this magazine. , UU reading www.uukansshu.com shows that this Qiubuyu teacher is indeed very good.
“Originally, teacher Qiu Buyu serialized “Pipa Song” on “Winter Island”, and left because of disputes over copyright and contribution fees. I thought she would be in a slump. I didn’t expect that after “Margaret” came the serialization of “Qing Qiu Friends Bo” “It’s even more powerful. The sales volume of the single book in just one year has surpassed the total sales volume of “Pipa Song” in three years!”
Li Ruoxuan seemed to be a fan of this teacher and explained with interest.
“That’s really awesome, shouldn’t you be doing the animation of this manga?”
Xu Rui asked subconsciously out of the intuition of an animation practitioner.
“Uh, it seems that Mushroom Movie is doing it.”
Li Ruoxuan replied slightly embarrassed.
“It’s okay, I just ask casually.”
The two chatted casually again. The staff on the side informed Li Ruoxuan that she could go to lunch and rest first. She nodded and turned to ask.
“I’m done here, do you want to go eat something together?”
“I’m still waiting for Qian Qian, I don’t know where she went shopping again.”
Xu Rui replied casually. He had already made two calls before, but they were all busy. I don’t know if the signal is bad or Yi Qianqian didn’t hear it.
“That’s it… Then why don’t we go find her. At noon, there will be fewer people in the venue. I can talk to my colleagues here and contact us if I see her.”
Li Ruoxuan hesitated for a moment, then proposed.
“Also, I’ll call and see.”
Xu Rui looked at the time. It was half past twelve, and Qiu Buyu’s signing had ended, but Yi Qian Qian was still not seen.
Just when the two of them were about to set off, there was a burst of exclamation on the side of the venue where there were fewer tourists.
