take the crown
"Champion" is a sports film produced by our production Co., Ltd. and directed by Chen Kexin, starring Gong Li, Huang Bo, Wu Gang, Peng Yuchang, Bai Lang and China Women's volleyball team. The film will be released in mainland China on September 25, 2020.
The film tells the story of China's women's volleyball team from winning the world championship for the first time in 1981 to the life and death war between China and Pakistan in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and interprets the legendary experience of several generations of women's volleyball players who have gone through ups and downs but have always been indomitable and constantly struggling.
In the 1980 training match, the Chinese women's volleyball team was defeated by the Chinese men's volleyball champion Jiangsu team. But that generation of women's volleyball training hard, hard, never give up, has leapt to the screen. In the final of the world cup in Osaka in 1981, China played Japan and won the first World Championship in China's three major balls. Song Shixiong's sonorous, forceful and highly recognizable explanation brought the audience back to the era of passion and sunshine. In the group match of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the head coach of the Chinese team was Lang Ping's (Gong Li) American team. The coach of the Chinese team (Huang Bo) stood on the sideline, absorbed and smiling. Lang Ping and the Chinese women's volleyball team of that generation experienced the struggle at that moment, which is heartbreaking. In 2013, Lang Ping officially coached the Chinese women's volleyball team again, leading the Chinese women's volleyball team to open a new historical stage. In the quarter knockout of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, China won the gold medal in the Olympic games against the host Brazil, which ranked first in the world.
Angle selection process
A year before the film began shooting, the crew began to look for actors across the country. First decided to find more than 1.8 meters actors, teach them volleyball, and then try shooting, but the shooting effect is not good enough. The cast began to audition among tens of thousands of volleyball players across the country, covering from university and middle school teams to provincial teams, and even former members of the national team. After six months of elimination and performance training, 12 actors were selected to play the role of the old women's volleyball team. Among them, Chen Zhan, a former national player, once played for the 2014 World Championships with the Chinese women's Volleyball National team. Through layer upon layer selection, he finally played sun JinFang.
The three most difficult games in the film are Jiangsu Men's volleyball team vs China's old women's volleyball team, Osaka World Cup and Rio Olympics. Jiangsu Men's volleyball team used the traditional method of film segmentation to shoot, that is, each shot was divided well. At that time, only one camera was used to follow each shot, and the shooting lasted for six days.
The second game was a long one. There was no split shot. It was shot by six traditional movie machines. Try to make the shots of serving and scoring follow the video of that year, but there is no control in the middle. After all, players can't repeat every ball, every move. The game was six machines in six days, and then they were cut together. But this efficiency is still not enough. Photographers are all cinematographers. They can't catch the ball accurately. They really can't catch many balls. So when we finally shot the China Pakistan war in 2016, we still used the shooting method of the China Japan war. We tuned six more machines to shoot with 12 machines together with the professional volleyball photographer of the sports channel.
