The whole play adopts a chronological style, selects typical characters from 10 different themes, adopts a unit structure, and is divided into “Three Meals a Day”, “Where the Heart Goes”, “Sharpening the Sword”, “Love”, “The Future Has Come” and “Ideal Life” ”, “Qianhai”, “Desert Light”, “Xixiang Bright Moon”, “Tang Palace Night Banquet”, and “Perseverance” eleven units, showing the people’s sense of gain, happiness and security in the ten years from 2012 to 2022. Beautiful journey. Create a group portrait of the people in the new era, reflect the big theme with small incisions, and reflect the big era with small characters, and sing praises for the new style, new struggle, and new spirit of the people in the new era.
It is reported that the 11 unit stories of “Our Ten Years” condense the stories of 11 ordinary people in different industries. The transformation of a restaurant reflects the new atmosphere in China brought about by the eight regulations; “Agricultural Makers” returned to the village to grow grain, and wrote a song of youth to devote themselves to “rural revitalization”; the Tigers tempered their swords and showed their enthusiasm for national defense in the new era and military construction; multi-ethnic teachers and students work together to pursue their dreams together, and interpret “national unity as one family”
From multiple dimensions; two generations of scientific research workers complement each other, overcome difficulties, achieve breakthroughs in 5G technology, and make Chinese standards recognized by the world; China People and friends from all over the world have achieved win-win development and an ideal life in Yiwu, an emerging and open commercial city in Zhejiang Province;
The director of the DreamWorks Business Project Department escorted Hong Kong entrepreneurial youth and jointly wrote the entrepreneurial story of the Greater Bay Area; Chinese builders went to North Africa, join hands to build a green and clean energy base, and create a better life together; criminal police Cheng Guanghui and village tyrant Zhou Daqi confronted the righteous and evil, profoundly explaining that fairness and justice are the soul and life of the rule of law;
The birth of “popular” dances such as “Tang Palace Night Banquet” The memory reflects the style of the times when cultural self-confidence has been significantly enhanced; all beings under the influence of the epidemic are watching and helping each other, showing the great anti-epidemic spirit of the people of the whole country, sharing weal and woe, and helping each other in the same boat.
In recent years, many TV dramas with the main theme have adopted unit drama narratives to tell the stories of the times, such as “Together”, which records the touching moments of the fight against the epidemic, and “Meritory”, which shows the lives of meritorious characters, all of which have achieved good reputation. To a certain extent, this form of “plating drama” is obviously inspired by the main theme “plating movie”.
For example, “My Motherland and Me”, “My Hometown and Me”, “My Fathers and Me” and other main theme movies with good box office and word-of-mouth success, all use a number of small stories in the creation to tell the big proposition of the times, reducing the drama The difficulty of the work also lowers the threshold for the audience to accept the main theme story. A film with many famous directors and many stars also met the expectations of ordinary audiences for “returning the price of the movie”.
The follow-up of the main theme unit drama, based on the creative experience in recent years, also has the advantages of the aforementioned movies, but as a long drama, there will also be how to unify the artistic style, how to schedule personnel efficiently, and how to keep the unit story for continuous viewing, etc. question.
In the face of such a creative method, it is very important for the chief director to have a macro-control over the whole drama whether he has rich creative and production experience. The chief director of “Our Ten Years” this time is Mao Weining. I believe that this director, who is a high-quality product, can effectively control the artistic quality of the play, which is worth the audience’s wait and see.
