In the domestic public opinion atmosphere, actresses seem to be particularly harsh on themselves. Not only do they need to know skin care and be a beauty blogger, but they also have to show “no PS close-up photos” to prove that they are “in good condition.” Many actors are anxious about this. Previously, there was news that Yang Zi wanted to be an actor but went to plastic surgery because he was worried that he was not good-looking enough. In foreign countries, many actresses who are still active and prolific in the film industry, such as Kate the Great Devil and Tilda Swinton, seem to be “the older they are, the more confident they are.”
Capital reasons. Because the capital does not like dramas with middle-aged women as the main characters, unless you are a big IP, such as “My First Half of Life”, but the first half of life was also changed to middle-aged Mary Su who grabbed a girlfriend’s husband. Let me just say it clearly. I was asked to be a screenwriter for several independent female-themed projects before, but in the end it was nothing, because “capital doesn’t like it.” Before the role of Su Mingyu, Yao Chen hadn’t filmed for a long time. Movies are not for capital reasons, because movies are director-centric, and most Chinese directors are male. It is indeed difficult for them to portray the complex, forbearing and delicate aspects of middle-aged women. 2. Domestic dramas are about falling in love. Falling in love with a variety of shells, sweet pets, sadomasochism, all for the purpose of love. Capital heard that feelings are not the main line, so don’t even think about doing this drama. In domestic dramas, older women and middle-aged women are not worthy to fall in love, so they should be tortured by blind dates and families to the point of being exhausted. 3. There is no real workplace drama in China. The best vehicle for showing mature women is workplace drama. The American dramas “The Proud Wife” and “The War of Proud Wife”, which we are most familiar with, are based on the background of the workplace and portray women of all ages. The heroine of “War of the Proud” is basically an “old lady” who is approaching retirement. In the workplace in my country’s workplace dramas, the backbone is still a twenty-year-old girl, and the theme is still falling in love, falling in love with an uncle, falling in love with a teenager, and falling in love with a colleague. Do you still remember the godlike “Entrepreneurship Era”? Investment bank elites Yang Tianbao and Song Yi have beaten their heads for men. Do you see the slightest shadow of the workplace drama? I previously said that I was the real “King behind the scenes” of the workplace drama, not to mention how flawed the workplace is and how divorced from reality. The hostess Zhou Dongyu is a college student who has just graduated. The task of entering is to fall in love with the uncle director. Yu Feihong, who is regarded as a goddess by everyone, is there any serious acting except for the female actor? Tell me, what should I do if I don’t keep my girlish feeling? Do you just quit the entertainment circle after thirty-one? PS: Someone in the comments asked why there is no real workplace drama. To write a real workplace drama, the screenwriter needs to spend a lot of time investment and research. However, the capital is unwilling to pay for this part of the time and expenses, and even feels that it is a waste of time and meaningless. They feel that the audience simply can’t understand and don’t care. Therefore, a screenwriter who is originally a disadvantaged cannot spend his energy to do things that capital does not approve. The screenwriter’s employment disadvantages and precarious partnerships are also part of the reason. Even if a screenwriter signs a contract and takes a deposit, it may be replaced anytime, anywhere for no reason. Therefore, less useless work is also a loss reduction behavior. Moreover, capital is rarely willing to spend money to hire professional consultants. As a result, the screenwriter will avoid the professional workplace, and only write something that doesn’t. The capital doesn’t need to be spent, and everyone has no loss. Where did the capital spend the money? Flow!
