Guan Hu leads the main creators to seek breakthroughs and complete impossible tasks
The production record of the film eight hundred takes the four day and night time mode of four line warehouse security battle in the film, divides the content into four days, and tells the shooting process outside the screen from four aspects of production, light and shadow, actor and film theme. The word broken in the name of documentary means breakthrough. In order to present the battlefield in 1937, director Guan Hu and his team spent 18 months in Suzhou to build a 200 mu real scene. In Guan Hus opinion, its just incredible, almost impossible to complete the task. The reason for this is to let all actors and creators immerse themselves in the situation of those people 83 years ago. If you want the audience to believe it, you have to believe it yourself is Guan Hus insistence on the production of eight hundred.
For other creators, eight hundred is also a breakthrough attempt. Cao Yu, the director of photography, hopes to achieve spiritual realism in eight hundred, and the freehand brushwork of light and shadow is particularly important. Cao Yu referred to a large number of early works of hope, monk and Picasso, and used more green in the film. In his opinion, it was the color of despair, anxiety and vitality. As for the art director forest, the past war films exaggerate the production of weapons and other props, and most of the weapons in eight hundred need to be redone, so as to show the real battlefield in 1937 as much as possible. In addition, clothing, props and other departments have their own challenges. As the producer Liang Jing said, eight hundred was achieved by every creators dedication and devotion to the film. .
In the eyes of the actors of eight hundred, this is a work that all actors want to participate in. Its been like this for two or three months. Now were miserable without this kind of make-up every day. Wei Chen said, entering the studio is like a shot of doping. Zheng Kai, who only had a few short shots, praised eight hundred as the most shocking war film I have ever seen. In order to ensure the reality of the impression, every action and every walk of the group performers should be accurate and in place. The close shot blasting and clothes ignition also need to be completed by the actors themselves, which is a challenge and training for all. The main creators, leading actors and group actors have been shooting for 8 months with their full energy, which makes Guan hudu sigh this is my only experience so far.
