I Know Everything - Chapter 407
Chapter 407: Only desperation.
Xin Changkong’s talent had been confirmed but Chen Huan still had questions to be answered.
After all, the director and producer were important factors related to the success or failure of an entire TV series so it shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Early the next morning, Xin Changkong went to the Shui Family’s courtyard again.
He held a bowl of noodles and squatted there while eating, it looked a bit uncomfortable.
Chen Huan waited for him to finish before calling him over.
Xin Changkong tidied his clothes before coming and said, “Teacher Lu!”
“Teacher Chu has seen your shot scheme and has nothing to reproach.” Chen Huan lightly said.
Xin Changkong didn’t think too much and directly thanked him.
However, did Teacher Chu select him, or just thought he was good and could be used as the alternative, or was he eliminated due to not standing out enough, Chen Huan didn’t elaborate.
He was nervous.
Chen Huan’s words gave him hope but he shouldn’t put all his hope on it.
If he put too much hope, he was afraid of what would happen if he ended up disappointed.
“In terms of the director’s authority and condition, do you have any requirements?” Chen Huan asked.
“I don’t have any, it’ll be good already if you let me film this TV series.” Xin Changkong’s heart was beating so hard that it was about to pop off. He spoke with a trembling voice as he feared he would wake up the next moment and it would be all a dream.
“As a director, you don’t have anything you want to personally take hold off?” Chen Huan asked with a frown.
“It’s like this.” Xin Changkong explained, “Teacher Chu’s script is definitely great so how could I put his skill in question? All I need to do is express what the script wants to tell to my best ability and I would at most add some branches and leaves to smoothen the plot. The charm of the script will be lost out if too much was changed.”
He knew Chen Huan was not only a friend of Chu Liuxiang but also one of the investors in this TV series. His voice was very important on whether he would get the job or not.
Xin Changkong hadn’t read the script yet and only knew the summary from Shui Qingshan.
Being able to realize this point and having no ego at all, Chen Huan felt awkward from hearing that and felt like this wasn’t a young director that created a miracle in the box office, but he also felt relieved at the same time.
Chen Huan actually only wanted to test his basic skills and understanding of the scripts.
Xin Changkong performed better than expected and was obviously a man of great renown.
As long as he knew what he should do and shouldn’t do, then ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ would be well shot and no mistake would be made.
How could there be someone wrong in a script and scenes written by him based on the original works?!
Chen Huan changed the subject, “Why did you come out and want to direct a script?”
“Because I don’t want to be in this depressed state anymore.” Xin Changkong was surprised but slowly explained, “I believe you heard of the prosperous thing I did. I want to dedicate the other half of my life to find her and atone to her.”
“But my current state can’t take care of her or even find her. Only when I become famous again, with power and fame, I could find her and atone for it.”
“Have you heard of Li Bai’s poem?” Chen Huan said, “I was abandoned in the past, which cannot be reversed. I’m annoyed at the present, which is very annoying.”
“I’m at fault and want to redeem myself.” Xin Changkong didn’t answer Chen Huan and affirmed again firmly.
After a moment, he raised his head and said, “That is why I can only succeed and must succeed! Thank you, Teacher Lu, and thank Teacher Chu for giving me this opportunity!”
His determination stunned Chen Huan a bit.
But Chen Huan didn’t care about his matter, whether he was faking it and or was sincerely regretting, it had nothing to do with Chen Huan.
Chen Huan only needed to know if Xin Changkong could play the role he needed him to.
Whether he would use him again next time, it still had to be seen.
Chen Huan didn’t like those long-term plans except for a few people, he didn’t believe that ‘they would never changes’ or ‘forever like this’ type of relationship.
People were fickle.
For example, it would be good as long as they could work well for now.
Especially for people like Xin Changkong who had bad history, if it wasn’t for Shui Qingshan recommending him and him being in a rush, Chen Huan wouldn’t even give him the opportunity to meet.
“Uncle Shui must have told you that I need more than a director, right?” Chen Huan asked, “Do you have any confidence to be also the producer?”
“I’ll give my all to do well.” Xin Changkong nodded solemnly, “Although I’m not familiar with the current TV series industry, I will use this opportunity and adapt myself again.”
“What about the production staff?”
“This is easy, I know many people in the industry and many of them are doing well.” Xin Changkong said, “I definitely can’t move them but if we use the name of Teacher Chu and Miss Bu Yiyi, it would be easy.”
Chen Huan smiled lightly.
Xin Changkong was very smart as he didn’t try to brag or act mighty.
He was now a loser in the industry and nobody would buy into him.
But it would be completely different if they used the name of Bu Yiyi and Chu Liuxiang.
There were many people that couldn’t wait to jump into the team and even if they didn’t get paid much money, they would still be willing.
They didn’t have to fear to not have enough talent.
“I’ll give you one week.” Chen Huan said, “You will come and get the script after signing the contract. Within a week, you must have an outline shot on how the entire TV series should be filmed, then Teacher Chu will also take out his own outline shot to see if you have the ability to become a good director.”
“In this week, you also have to recruit all the production staff needed for a film crew and start preparing. What Teacher Chu and I want is to start shooting in November. The time is short and the tasks hard, so there isn’t a lot of time to prove yourself.”
With that said, Chen Huan stared at him and slowly said, “Are there any problem with that?”
Xin Changkong waved his hands and solemnly said.
He wasn’t worried about it, he decided to give his all, so what was working more?
There were many people that couldn’t get such an opportunity.
He was a loser but got the chance to change his fate so how could he not try hard?
