The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 51
Chapter 51 . “Iron Sorcerer”
In Xu Rui’s view, the plot of “Steel Mage” is similar to the animation of a certain brother Douding and brother Tinhide on the earth, and they are all works of youth orientation.
Contrast was used in the first episode. The first half is the harmonious life of the people in a village, but the second half reveals the truth. It turns out that this village has monsters that eat people, and the villagers need to vote for sacrifices in order to survive. Pinlai is dedicated to the monsters. The protagonists discover the truth and kill the monsters, but the villagers become very frightened, as if they have lost their goal in life.
“Compared to “Innocent Teacher and Pretty Student”, this story is not easy. If the director of Wu Yi can’t grasp it, this animation will cause a lot of controversy.”
After Xu Rui finished reading, Yi Qianqian peeled all the crabs on the table. She spent several years in Ningjiang, and her crab-eating craftsmanship was extremely superb. Hairy crabs could be taken apart almost without dirtying her hands. Leave no residual meat.
“There is no problem in production, and the team of director Wu Yi is indeed the strongest in China’s industry.”
Yi Qian Qian wiped his hands with a tissue, and said lightly.
“As long as this kind of team production level is normal, it is almost an excellent animation, but it seems that the director of Wuyi is not satisfied with this, and wants to make a breakthrough in content.”
“Yes, even if the plot is completely ignored, the process design and painting performance of the battle, the combination of hand-painting and 3D, including the chaos in the opening song, are all excellent performances. With the plot, the expressiveness is even more amazing. I think that just in October, there will be such a strong animation.”
Xu Rui saw that Yi Qianqian had finished eating, and began to tidy the table.
People in the animation industry watch animations, and ordinary audiences watch animations. They clap their hands and applaud for interesting animations. Uninteresting animations are less interested. At most they can understand the difficulties behind some paintings, and these shots may only take a few seconds. bell.
“I go back to play a game for a while and then go to sleep.”
Yiqianqian saw Xu Rui walking into the kitchen with a plate, and said.
“Okay, Sister Qian Qian, you go to bed early.”
Xu Rui responded and turned on the faucet, and then heard the sound of the door closing.
After he finished washing the dishes, tidying up the kitchen and dining table, he turned off the outside lights and went back to his room to lie down.
The October night was still a little bit hot, Xu Rui pulled the screen window, opened the window, and could feel a little bit of hot wind.
He wanted to go to bed directly, but he couldn’t sleep well, so he took out his mobile phone and looked at it at will.
There have been many posts about October animation in the animation area of the A2 forum. Some of the highlighted posts are even more eye-catching, and the one with the most replies is naturally the just finished “Iron Sorcerer”.
[yaoniming300]: Perfect production, in-depth plot, this year’s annual animation has already had results in advance, and the people behind can be gone.
[Heaven Dog]: Show off the black and crippled animation, martial arts is really getting more and more inflated. I thought he would bring some good works, but I didn’t expect it to be worse than the previous one. It disappointed me!
[Assault Team Leader]: Those upstairs who say the animation is not good, you can do it, you can go?
[He Shu]: I’m so ridiculous. If I evaluate the performance of the refrigerator, I need to know how to cool it. I think the Iron Magician is fine in the early stage, but it will definitely collapse in the later stage! ! !
[FCKKKK]: I think this animation is very good, with foreshadowing and reversal, as well as wonderful battles and complicated settings. Those of you who feel bad, give you the pen, and you can draw it.
[Words Pudding]: When the animation was broadcast, I was gnawing on the neck of the duck, and I couldn’t stand it until I gnawed halfway through it. I think this animation is probably going to lose money.
【Visitors one, two and three】: I blindly guess that the average volume of sales is about 8,000 to 10,000. It shouldn’t be difficult to be the hegemony of the season, but it’s not that good to become the annual sales hegemony.
After seeing these comments, Xu Rui remembered the sales volume, so he clicked on Taotao.com, the largest online shopping website in the country, to check the reservation status.
In just over an hour, “Steel Mage” has ranked first on the appointment list, far surpassing other animations. According to the exchange of reservations and actual sales, Xu Rui visually measured the average volume sales of “Steel Mage” It should be more than 10,000. He felt that he was watching the animation. The average sales volume of this work should be 20,000.
According to the industry’s previous practice, a 13-episode animation with a roll average of two thousand and five is not at a loss. This is the animation’s capital preservation line, because this number is the average volume of the previous animation “School Girl Rushing Forward” Sales, so it is also called “school girl line”.
If the volume can reach 5,000, it means that its sales have reached the top 20% of the annual animation sales, and there is hope of producing the second season, so it is also called the “second line”.
is a best-selling work with a sales volume of 10,000. It is not only easier to produce the second season, but also to be continuously promoted in various channels. At this level, it is actually a very successful animation.
Judging from these indicators, the Iron Wizard should undoubtedly be a successful commercial animation The director of Wu Yi’s ability to produce commercial works is clearly reflected in the sales.
Sales volume does not represent quality. Not only does the work itself have the difference between the masses and the niche, including the price of CDs, bonus products, and even schedules all have an impact on sales, so people in the industry generally do not judge success or failure based on sales alone. .
What’s more, now that network broadcasting is popular, the broadcasting rights of video websites themselves are also an income, and the sales of CDs are only a reference.
But for some viewers, sales are the most conspicuous indicator. They will call the highest-selling work “hegemony”, and some of the original works, or the famous production team but the low-selling works are called “violent death.”
Because of this, sales volume has become the most popular topic of discussion among the audience, and they enjoy it every quarter.
“The best-selling this year should be the previous “Ningjiang Zombie 2”, with an average sales volume of 12 thousand after the three-volume sale. From this point of view, “Iron Sorcerer” should surpass it.
Xu Rui recalled the information she had seen before and muttered to herself.
A2 forum soon had sales forecast posts again. It seemed that because a few people were arguing in the special building, the moderator simply made a forecast post and used the forum points as a bet to place a bet.
Xu Rui took a brief look. There were very few votes below 2,000. More votes were concentrated between 2,000 and 5,000, and between 5,000 and 10,000, and between 10,000 and 20,000 votes and less than 2,000. Almost the same, I don’t know if it’s the bad taste of the moderator, and there are 30,000 options, but it’s too ridiculous and no one bets.
Xu Rui thought for a while, logged in to his account, and voted in some points, right to be entertainment.
He was betting on the 30,000 option.
