February 14, New Year, starring Jackie Chan film "Little Big Soldier" will be released at the Castle Theater, directed by film director Ding Sheng, before that he just filmed "Tough Guy" and other films, as a a new director, so why get Jackie Chan's favor? In the studio, the director is the authority? Or everything is "big brother" Jackie Chan have the final say? February 10th, 11 Ding Sheng an exclusive interview to answer these questions.

New director, Jackie Chan will want to "gamble"

Ding-sheng told reporters that he and Jackie Chan awareness through commercials, "I directed him to the three ads, some ads may have to shoot two or three days, sometimes dinner, singing, are also considered, and However, he only took me a start as an ad director, and will not talk to me about the film until you see the "Tough Guy" film." Ding Sheng said that Jackie Chan was surprised: "So you will make a movie!" Ding Sheng chatted on and I had always want to make a story, which is the "Little Big Soldier" prototype, a soldier, one will be the story, but specifically, how frankly could not think of Jackie Chan's film, has been on hold.

"But I think this story is useful to do the first, giving himself room to play a very large, and his idol but also working with Jackie Chan movies are also very attractive. Although he was only casually, one said, but I put this thing child as his own the fix" Ding Sheng then spent a year's time, "Little Big Soldier" to write the script out to see Jackie Chan showed. Jackie Chan astonished, exclaimed: "I have not said I will let you shoot it!" Ding Sheng let Jackie Chan read and after he contracted Ding Sheng to direct "Little Big Soldier" In fact, Jackie Chan is also gamble with new directors like me, but also such a film that he valued." Ding Sheng said.

Ding-sheng told reporters that the film shot at the beginning that he does have some stress, "says Jackie Chan, Big Brother is impatient. In the studio he hoped that all things are moving as fast as is possible". So, Ding Sheng shot when there is pressure, "but the pressure soon diluted, and Jackie Chan and I do have a basis for cooperation.Between the two of us are also more similarities.

Man who is in charge to listen to my show is Jackie Chan

Although the director is the authority of a crew, but many people believe that this is Jackie Chan creativity. Ding Sheng is also new to the scene Jackie Chan definitely has the final say. Ding Sheng said: "Jackie Chan is also a step by step done from the bottom up, and he understands the director, in the studio he is listening to me, especially the theater part of the text, even if there is anything to discuss, he is in the evening to find me to have a private chat."

Most of the humor, the film focused on Jackie Chan's body, Ding Sheng think this is normal, because it has always been a Jackie Chan movie, and must be in Jackie Chan's body plus a lot of things, the audience will have fresh, while Lee Hom before the speech of the play too much, the audience will see what is fresh. Ding Sheng's performance in the film that Lee Hom is also a successful play in the beating when the started his martial arts often find the exact location of Lee Hom, Jackie Chan played complain incessantly, not a direct hit in the hands of Jackie Chan, that is hit There is no protection of the joints, let Jackie Chan enough to create misunderstandings, but Lee Hom is more left-handed guide to the martial arts out of a great challenge, because it did not expect, all are designed to play right-handed play, changing the play, then moves on the low-grade, asymmetry, Wang Lee Hom informed of this, it frequently in private practice hard with his right hand the sword, so that everyone was very impressed.

The lower part of the film and Liu Ye cooperation, a "Tough Guy 2"

Although the co-operation is very happy, but the filming process is actually quite difficult, because the viewfinder to complex terrain in Yunnan Province, the daily working crew must Bashansheshui, the journey long, four transfer scene so that everyone became a "Mix", he drove did not go in places, people are still hobble around inside the machine.

Of course, everyone will Kuzhongzuole, especially Jackie Chan and Wang Lee Hom, often facing the valley burst into singing the response to particularly good effect, Chan is also said: "In the valley, singing, I feel completely satisfying and the results were compared with a concert good. "

February 14, films must meet with the audience, although a lot of the Lunar New Year movie files, Dante Sheng confident at the box office, "we are currently receiving praise this film are very good, in the same period films shown in , it does have its own unique style and quality, "Ding Sheng also hope that fellow Qingdao lot to support their movie theater.
