Domestic singing, dancing, music, film and television dramas are not impossible to do, but must go the right way
While the singing and dancing clips in “Love Apartment 5” were criticized by the audience, as a screenwriter, the author wanted to talk about the creative thinking of this type of work.A musical is not a TV series. With the musical part of the dance, you can transform yourself into a new life. From the beginning of the most upstream drama creation, the musical drama and the ordinary TV series have a completely different starting point.>>> “Love Apartment 5” changed to a musical?The difference between “New White Lady Legend” and a lot of essential differences in script creation thinking is the internal cause. First of all, if you want to create a musical, you have to use two main directions of script and music.How do things from two industries come together, and ultimately come together?In the final analysis, musicals are dramas. Music only serves the core of dramas.Therefore, if “Love Apartment 5” is going to be a drama with musical elements at the beginning, it should be understood that under this logical development line, if the music is added, what effect will it add to the luster?To put it bluntly, is it appropriate for one more musical element in such a sitcom setting, the characters of these protagonists, and this urban funny plot?In addition, on the foundation of emotions, the establishment of the theme, and the rendering of emotions, can the appearance of music make these elements more clear?Stills of the trailer for “Love Apartment 5”.The creation of music is closely followed by the creation of the script.Of course, sometimes it is because there is a melody that is deeply rooted in people’s hearts before deciding to make a musical.And music may also be a beneficial magic weapon for shaping characters and promoting plot ideas.But for “Love Apartment”, only music is added to the plot to serve the plot, it can complement each other.Script creation must take precedence over music creation.In normal musicals, the master uses common lyrics instead of speaking, and uses melodies to directly substitute everyone into the environment of that era, shortening the time span and distance in the expression of the plot.In a musical, music listens to a feeling, and then the story that is felt.To put it bluntly, musical plays originally used melody to sharpen the plot thickness and lyrics to shorten the length of the story, which is the best way to avoid waste drama.It is a pity that “Love Apartment 5” takes the music element as a shield.Let’s start with music as a gimmick, preach it in the trailer, do a lot of hot memories and search for freshness, and then use music to fill up the plot when it is actually broadcast.Chasing dreams, youth campus is the way that domestic dramas can go. Looking back at the previous successful music TV series, it can be summarized in five categories.The first is to chase dreams.Obviously, it was team formation or band formation, such as “Happy Chorus”, “Famous Reputation” and “Rushing out of Compton”.These are all groups to make a choir, group debut, or group hip-hop.Also talking about the theme of chasing dreams, there is “Linda!”Linda!Linda!”And” Happy Good Voice “about the singing competition.You will find that these musical movies and TV shows have a fundamental common point, that is, they have turned music into their main elements and background from the starting point of the story.Music is an indispensable part of them.Therefore, adding a lot of music to the plot, or even making music the main event, is a matter of course and logical.Looking at the domestic market, perhaps only the episode “Flash Girl” based on the recent movie adaptation can meet such conditions.Stills of “Flash Girl”.The second one is the literary and artistic direction, that is, it uses music to tell a love story.This is quite rare in TV series, but more successful in the movie.Because the length of the film coincides with the portrayal of a beautiful love, we have the familiar “Once”, “New York to meet you again”, “Hairspray” and “City of Philharmonic”.The third type is the most common type of youth motivational growth among other types of music.Music is an indispensable companionship for teenagers and a witness to the youth of many people, and the story of the campus is even more green and pure.”Rise of Youth” and “Youth Hip Hop Dream” are such genres.At the same time, the age of youth is the age of dreaming. Everyone is eager to be famous, to aura, to be concerned.Of course, some stars returned to school, hidden in the classroom, and found the true self.These are taken care of in the two musical TV series “Sony Star Dream” and “Hannah Montana”.And this genre is also another breakthrough for domestic music dramas.The last two are relatively niche, and they are well-formed, error-free, and difficult to highlight.One is the adaptation of classic operas such as “Moulin Rouge”, “Phantom of the Opera”, “Chicago” and “Mamma Mia”.One is similar to the music industry, such as “Vinyl Era” and “Hip Hop Empire”, a comprehensive overview of the years of hip hop.But these two types of remakes or adaptations are not suitable for the domestic market.The former is trapped in the best vowel style of opera, and the beauty of rhythm and rhythm is emphasized in the throughput of words, which is a natural advantage of English and alternative languages.And localization has become a Chinese translation. Even if the lyrics are not literally translated, and no matter how they fall on the ground, the reading of the lyrics themselves is not suitable for the tone of the lyrics.If you want to be satisfied, it is the trend of opera like Beijing Opera and Yu Opera. This is another matter.Stills of “Bohemian Rhapsody”.In itself, it leads to material gaps in star biographies, and a large area of blankness in the historical environment of musical figures and deeds. From hatching, there is a lot of intelligence.Even if you really want to make a biography of a certain star, involving the true and false characters, and the care and love caused by this star’s family and fans, basically nothing can be touched.In the drama, it is impossible to write a character with radians and angles.So if we have to do it now, the only musical series we can do is to chase our dreams and youth campus.Moreover, looking to the future, there is still a long way to go for music dramas in these two directions.Because there are too many ways to chase dreams, the music is only one in ten million, and there are many high-profile and high-view dramas on Youth Campus. They can be as exciting as no music.If you want to integrate music, it is also a topic selection and planning with a probability of 1 in 100 million.Therefore, in the final analysis, domestic TV series, whether it is the creation of a musical series itself, or the creation of a typed series to transform the music direction, or the self-development of other types of series, must be tailored to local conditions.□ Qiu Xiaomo (drama reviewer) editor of Sauna Night Net Wu Longzhen proofreading Fan Jinchun
