The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 83
Chapter 83 .New hatred and old hatred
Tomato Video Network’s trend quickly spread to Xu Rui. At this time, he was still busy with the production of Puella Magi Madoka. When the executive producer Xu Yang told him about it, Xu Rui had just returned from the recording studio.
The reason for the discovery is that Xu Yang is preparing to upload the first trailer of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”, which is scheduled to be released on the night of the animation industry conference. As a result, after a longer than usual review period, the result is that the review failed. , And ironically, the main reason for failing the review turned out to be the same manuscript.
Xu Yang searched on Tomato Video.com and found that most of the videos related to phantom electricity had disappeared. The entire website was clean. Except for “Unnatural Death” uploaded by the official account, there were no other derivative works left.
Xu Rui smelled a bad breath. He returned to the office, first confirmed it himself, and then looked at the added groups. There were indeed people discussing this matter, but the official reason given by Tomato Video Network is that it is under review. , This situation occasionally occurs, mostly due to server convulsions or some bugs, so it has not caused much disturbance among creators for the time being.
After looking for it, Xu Rui found a business card in the drawer. This was the business card that the editor gave him when Tomato Video Network extended an olive branch to him. He dialed the phone. About a minute later, the other party Just connected.
“Hello, is it Liu Xueyan the editor? This is Xu Rui from Phantom Animation.”
Xu Rui asked, and then he could feel the opposite breath taking a breath before he answered.
“I am, but I am no longer an editor.”
Tomato Video’s underground warehouse, Liu Xueyan, who is counting the official coser costumes needed for the next show, sighed softly.
“You want to ask about the video being taken down.”
“Well, yes, edit, this is not a simple server convulsion or system bug.”
Xu Rui heard Liu Xueyan’s answer, already knowing it, he confirmed.
“Have you found a channel for broadcasting your new animation?”
Liu Xueyan was stunned, unexpectedly Xu Rui had guessed so deeply. After thinking about it, he asked abruptly.
“Not yet, there are a few companies currently in talks, but it will be August when the signing is signed.”
After the new round of animation broadcasting rights sales will be broadcast in July, each website purchases according to their own plans, so now the animation broadcasting of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” has not been finalized.
“You can check Dream Flying Animation, Rising Sun Animation, and Cat Production Companies. I can’t say much, I can only remind you to be careful.”
“…I understand, thank you, editor Liu Xueyan.”
Xu Rui was about to say goodbye to each other, after thinking about it, he said again.
“If you need help, you can call me at any time.”
“……it is good.”
Liu Xueyan heard what Xu Rui meant. He didn’t expect the same thing to be said from Xu Rui after a lapse of a year. Liu Xueyan was a little shaken in his heart, but he still cares for Tomato. After all, this is because he swayed his youth. Website.
He hung up the phone and looked at the quiet and cold warehouse again.
Xu Rui quickly searched for several animation companies mentioned by Liu Xueyan. He found that these animation companies had some good works, but they soon encountered failures and were finally acquired by Tomato Video Network and became two of their animation companies. The company’s production team.
searched for related content again, Xu Rui figured out the current situation.
Unlike the earth, most of China’s video sites have established a fairly complete profit model and ecological closed-loop. For example, Tomato Video Network, which is completely self-sufficient, has everything from creativity to work to derivatives, and has the most users. For those animation companies, big websites such as Tomato Video Network are equivalent to channels and the penguin empire of the earth.
Since the animations broadcast on TV stations require a very hard background, most animation companies’ animations are first broadcast on the Internet platform.
Those animation companies that were acquired were all because they did not negotiate the broadcast on Tomato Video Network, and even shelved the broadcast rights agency with other video networks. Eventually, the animation was not broadcast on the platform, and the quality itself was not enough to form a word-of-mouth effect. As a result, With big losses, the company’s operation is difficult to maintain and can only be sold at a low price.
Although some animations can be played, according to the financial report disclosed afterwards, their prices have been suppressed to a very low level, which is almost at a level that can recover the cost. This will also lead to the closure of companies with insufficient economic strength.
Even Xu Rui checked along this line. During the most difficult period of the old phantom movie, there were similar situations where video websites jointly lowered prices and blocked them, but the company went bankrupt and dispersed before it was acquired. However, most of its core members have also been absorbed into the animation companies under these websites, which is a disguised acquisition.
I didn’t expect that the same method would come to Xu Rui’s new phantom head so quickly.
This kind of method Xu Rui has seen many times on the earth, and a certain big Internet empire is best at this kind of thing, so Xu Rui quickly figured out the ins and outs.
Xu Rui thought for a while, in fact, facing the channel blockade, it is not entirely without countermeasures.
First of all, the quality of the work is sufficient, and it can still form a word-of-mouth effect, so that the work has enough tap water to spread among the audience.
Secondly, the collaboration of video sites is not solid. With the current level of the two animations of Phantom, there will certainly be sites that can’t help but spend money to buy “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”, you can see who is the second or fifth boy at that time.
Finally, Xu Rui thought that he hadn’t had that plan to face China’s developed video website, but now, it seems that building a video website by himself has become an imminent thing with phantom telegram logo. The small vehicle drove on the highway and soon arrived at the Ningjiang Laozhuang International Convention and Exhibition Center.
The Ningjiang River in mid-July is extremely hot, but the square outside the International Convention and Exhibition Center is crowded with people. There are many photographers around the cosplayers. People can’t help but stop and take a look at the dazzling [Beep——] and [Beep— —].
After a glance, Xu Rui saw that the costumes of these cosplayers were also different from the previous year. Many popular animated characters of the season replaced those from last year’s old anime. She also saw many wearing “Soul Eater:” In “Zero”, the female coser in the school uniform with a long sword in her hand must be playing Li Leshen or Huangfuxun.
Xu Rui parked the car in the underground garage and walked onto the ground with Yi Asa. He watched Yi Asa, who was wearing a dress, walked into the Convention and Exhibition Center, and then walked along the familiar road to the nearby hotel.
He is still dressed in a T-shirt and trousers, and his suit is in the car. After all, he doesn’t need to speak at industry conferences, just sit underneath and listen.
As soon as the long and boring industry conference ended, Xu Rui wanted to sneak away immediately.
Because according to what I just heard, the annual animation awards ceremony will be held in a conference hall of the hotel at 5 pm, and the dinner will be held in the banquet hall until 7 pm. The whole award ceremony will be held in the banquet hall. Ningjiang TV station and major media websites broadcast, quite grand.
With such a calculation, Xu Rui will return to the hotel to change into formal attire after four o’clock, and the time to be with Yi Qianqian and others is much less.
Just after he walked out of the meeting room, he was stopped by a voice.
“Wait a minute, Xu Rui.”
Turning his head, Xu Rui realized that the person who stopped him was Wu Yi, the hottest animation director nowadays.
