Financial writer Wu Xiaobo is famous for his books "The Great Loss" and "Thirty Years".
In 2008, to cope with the 30th anniversary of the reform and opening up, First Business Finance plans to make Wu Xiaobo's book "Thirty Years of Stirring" into a documentary. In order to ensure the success of the filming, the program team invited a person who had worked in CCTV to plan. This person's name was Luo Zhenyu.
That was the first time Wu Xiaobo and Luo Zhenyu met. Wu Xiaobo, who was already famous at that time, didn't have any special feelings about the fat man in front of him. It wasn't until the next thing happened that he looked at him differently.
The documentary is about to shoot 30 episodes and has a budget of only 3 million. It needs to be completed within 4 months.
Everyone was dumbfounded at the first planning meeting because it was an impossible task.
Not to mention the poor budget and the short time, the hardest part is the interview with the characters in "Thirty Years of Turmoil".
You should know that this book is all about the well-known contemporary Chinese entrepreneurs, politicians, and economists.
Want to make all appointments and interviews in 3 months-even if half of the tasks are completed, there is almost no possibility.
The entire team was in despair.
In the gloomy conference room, Luo Zhenyu shook his fat head and slowly said, "Why do you have to interview the parties? Ca n’t you interview bystanders?"
Everyone was in a circle, Luo Zhenyu cleared his throat and then said: "The parties in our book do not invite any, but only conduct external interviews. For example, is n’t Zhang Ruimin smashing the refrigerator, we do n’t need to interview him, but smash the report The first reporter from the refrigerator came. "
Everyone paused, because this proposal was too strange, and no one knew how it would work out. But on closer inspection, this seems to be the only way to go.
As a result, the program team immediately started, and found more than 300 parties related to the parties in more than two months for a centralized interview.
One of the well-known figures in "Thirty Years of Turbulence" did not appear. Even if he had the opportunity to interview, he was intentionally bypassed by the team.
In the end, the shooting of the program was completed successfully on time. What was the effect? After the 31-episode financial documentary "Surge: 1978-2008" was broadcast on Oriental TV, it won almost all domestic news documentary awards of the year.
Afterwards, Wu Xiaobo commented on Luo Fei's pen, saying: "This is really a genius" methodological revolution ". It turns all the problems in front of you into the Maginot Line of Defense. Once you bypass it, it will suddenly be a peace.
I am very touched by Luo Zhenyu's past, because this is the reality. Whatever you want to accomplish, there is no perfect moment in perfect seamlessness, there are always flaws of this kind or that, either insufficient resources, insufficient time, or too difficult. These "stumbling blocks" will make you give up your determination to achieve your goals and be helpless against all difficulties.
Most of the people who can achieve great things will not run into a bloodstream with the "blocker", but will know how to get around and find another way to reach the end.
