I Know Everything - Chapter 405
Chapter 405: Bad Tempered Director.
When Lai Haijin left, he went looking for a producer.
Then he gave three producers choices to Chen Huan but they didn’t catch Chen Huan’s eyes.
Calf TV also started their promotion.
They were on their first part by hyping that it was Chu Liuxiang’s script and Bu Yiyi departure from the cast.
“The rising Calf TV bought Teacher Chu Liuxiang’s great masterpiece for a sky high price. After ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’, is Teacher Chu starting to work in the TV series industry!?”
“What made the Small Flower Dan depart from the cast and would rather not take the 10 million to star in this series?”
“Source from Calf TV revealed that Bu Yiyi’s artistic view clashed with the company so they reluctantly let her go.”
“According to rumors, Bu Yiyi was being a diva…”
“Teacher Chu was also being greedy for money as he asked tens of millions for the script fee!”
All those news made Chen Huan shake his head with a bitter smile while Bu Yiyi was furious.
But she just couldn’t say anything to the reporters or say anything on her Weibo.
The moment she said something, the next part of the hyping process would flood in.
Regardless of whether she was in the right or not, Calf TV would drag her in and make a fuss about it for multiple months to make full use of her popularity.
Lai Haijin who had been wronged, should have spoken up but his speaking would be equivalent to Bu Yiyi speaking so it would also cause unpredictable consequences.
It wasn’t that they couldn’t retort but without upside, all the talk would be for nothing.
Only when they confirmed the start of the production of ‘Princess Returning Pearl’, it would be the start of the retaliation.
Hyping was hyping, they were getting hype but didn’t they also need hype?
‘Princess Returning Pearl’ would be easier to sell for a high price with more people anticipating it.
However, Bu Yiyi’s mood was getting more irritable so Chen Huan knew he should quickly choose the producer and assemble the team.
At dinner that night when Chen Huan was talking to Shui Qingshan, he suddenly recalled that Zhu Mei was a director and wouldn’t it be easier to have her recommend some to him?
Having that thought, he asked Shui Qingshan about Zhu Mei.
When Shui Qingshan learned about what Chen Huan wanted, he slammed the table and said, “Why didn’t you say so earlier? I have a very good guy here!”
Chen Huan instantly realized something, weren’t uncle Shui a Huhai Opera graduate?
As one of China’s three cradles for superstars, it didn’t only produce stars but also directors and producers.
If Shui Qingshan knew Zhu Mei, he definitely knew other talented classmates.
“That guy is one of my juniors and is very talented. Six years ago, at the age of 29, he directed the film ‘Joyous Campus’. It’s at the tenth place in the box office ranking and he became renowned throughout the country.” Shui Qingshan introduced.
Chen Huan remembered this was a movie from the comedy king Song Yan.
Back then, Xin Changkong and Song Yan, two unknown people, made the low-cost comedy ‘Joyous Campus’ together, which generated 370 million at the box office for a 5 million budget.
It wasn’t only ranked at the tenth place in the box office but also set a record for return investment.
After that, Song Yan went straight to the top.
But Chen Huan rarely heard of the name Xin Changkong.
He seemed to have made a few movies but it wasn’t received well so he gradually fell off.
“After he filmed ‘Joyous Campus’, he had been living the life for two years and was addicted to those female stars that threw themselves at him. His pregnant girlfriend didn’t even know about it.” Shui Qingshan calmly recounted, “Then one day, his girlfriend was hit by a tricycle when she went shopping and the baby was lost.”
“However, he only went to the hospital three days later and his girlfriend already left and cut all contact with him. Since then, Xin Changkong had been in a slump and the movies he made continued to crash so no one looked for him to make movies now. That was why nobody heard about him recently.”
“A Scumbag! He deserves it!”
Shui Qianyu snorted.
“But he is very talented, especially in comedy. After graduating, he went to work as assistant director in two Film companies, then he worked in some movies and TV series and was quite good so he got the opportunity to write and direct his own movie.” Shui Qingshan said, “Another important point is when Xin Changkong made ‘Joyous Campus’, he was both the director and producer so he’s all around talent!”
Men and women looked at things in different perspectives.
Men would first look at their skills before their characters.
First impressions were very important to women so they were more likely to let their emotion influence their decisions.
Seeing how unhappy Shui Qianyu was with her father introducing Xin Changkong to him, Chen Huan smiled and patted her head as he said, “He actually has already been punished and doesn’t his defeated state mean that he cares? Isn’t it more disgusting if he had no regret and continued his party life?”
Shui Qianyu’s expression eased after hearing that but she still didn’t like Xin Changkong.
“Xin Changkong’s brother, Xin Changqing, is my classmate but this guy went to study to become a music teacher and didn’t develop in the showbiz.” Shui Qingshan said, “I learned of Xin Changkong’s affair when I met with him. If you’re interested, I can help you contact him and this can be counted as giving him a chance.”
Shui Qingshan didn’t elaborate on it but his words showed that he wanted to give that chance to Xin Changkong.
Chen Huan didn’t hesitate and agreed, “Then I’ll trouble Uncle Shui to contact him for me. We still have to see whether it will work or not.”
A smile appeared on Shui Qingshan’s face.
That old classmate went to Zhu Mei a few times and asked her to give Xin Changkong a chance to let him become her assistant.
But he was rejected by Zhu Mei.
Because Zhu Mei was a woman and couldn’t stand a man with a character like that.
Even if that person was her junior and that Xin Changqing was her friend.
But Chen Huan suddenly gave an opportunity so it was only natural for Shui Qingshan to help him.
He wasn’t only helping Xin Changkong but it was also because Chen Huan really needed a good director and producer.
Xin Changkong had a glorious feat and the chance for him to help Chen Huan shoot the best version of ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ was naturally much higher!
