Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Thus, Gong Xu tried again.
Each time, Gong Xu performed better, but it was never enough to meet Ye Wanwan’s expectations. It still felt as though something was missing.
She hoped Gong Xu could express an even more atrocious mentality than the scoundrel that bordered on insanity!
After a certain number of takes, Gong Xu refused to do it anymore. “I’m already vicious enough! How can I get any more vicious?! I’m at my max for viciousness!”
Ye Wanwan went silent for a moment then called Gong Xu over. “Come here.”
“Uh…” Gong Xu headed towards her.
Ye Wanwan thought about it briefly then said to Gong Xu, “Now close your eyes and listen to my words. Imagine that you’re at the training camp, deep inside the forest. You’re only carrying one cracker and you have to survive for a month. You’ve gotten through to the twenty-ninth day after suffering for so long and on the thirtieth day, you finally can’t persist any longer and you prepare to eat your snack, but at that moment, the cracker was stolen by a scoundrel. Now, what do you want to do?”
Gong Xu: “Kill! Him!!!”
Ye Wanwan: “… Alright.”
This time, Gong Xu did it perfectly in one take.
The actor for the antagonist was a retired soldier. During the previous takes with Gong Xu, he held back to a certain extent, but this time, Gong Xu really pushed him to his limit.
“Cut! Perfect! Very good! The emotional control was perfect!” Liu Qing was extremely pleased.
Ye Mufan smiled lightly. Out of curiosity, he murmured to Ye Wanwan, “What exactly did you say to that brat, Gong Xu? He nearly went insane!”
Ye Wanwan: “Not much. I made him imagine how he would feel if his last cracker got stolen.”
Ye Mufan widened his eyes. “Is there something wrong with his way of thinking?”
Ye Wanwan: “You just realized today?”
Ye Mufan: “…”
The second scene that day was a fight approaching the end.
In the ending, Xue Shao Yang, who was originally a playful, gutless coward who was sometimes cold and selfish, actually died to save a little girl.
Shen Yue, who had gone through so much with Xue Shao Yang, had come to think of him as his brother. In this scene, he would hold Xue Shao Yang’s body in despair.
The focus of this scene was Luo Chen.
Luo Chen only needed one take to finish.
“Cut! Pass! Great!” Liu Qing cried out and applause erupted.
Luo Chen bowed as he retracted the sadness in his expression.
Luo Chen was so talented that he could already do this naturally…
Ye Wanwan looked at Luo Chen, looking like a mother who had watched her son grow up.
Luo Chen’s rate of improvement was simply too godly!
Gong Xu murmured sourly, “Hmph, so fake. I could tell it was acting with just one glance! If I really died, he would likely play with fireworks!”
Because of the high efficiency rate, several important scenes of the film were completed without a hitch and everyone on the production cast and crew could relax.
It was like that idiom that said a beard lathered was half-shaved. The time they spent doing the special training wasn’t wasted.
Days passed as they followed an intensely packed filming schedule.
Because the filming process went very smoothly, they finished filming in half the expected time they allotted for filming.
The day they finished filming, Ye Wanwan had Jiawen reserve a private room for a banquet for all the cast and crew.
Once Gong Xu arrived that night, he began complaining.
“Brother Ye, if this was a regular day, I would let it go, but today is such a special day so you have to drink one cup at least!”
After he said that, he dragged Luo Chen over and asked, “Blockhead, don’t you agree with me?”
Luo Chen: “Don’t agree.”
Gong Xu: “F*ck! Traitor! Didn’t we say we were brothers-in-arms?!”
Ye Wanwan rolled her eyes at Gong Xu. “Hold on a bit. I need to go make a call.”
“Hey, wait. Are you going to drink or not? Brother Ye, you still haven’t replied to me!” Gong Xu prompted.
Ye Wanwan lifted her phone. “I need to ask for permission regarding whether I can drink or not first.”
Gong Xu: “…”
