我的『SG50』微电影创作

我的『SG50』微电影创作

这几天很烦恼!为了庆祝『 SG50 』,我正在构思创作一出微电影。内容已经有了,大意是说有 10 个人在游泳,其中 2 人技术不到家,溺水遇险了大声呼救。这时候,救生员开着小艇来了,很勤奋的将救生圈一一的送到 8 个游泳的人,就是对那 2 个溺水者视若无睹,任他们在水里载沉载浮,看看就要没顶,幕就下了。 我还没想到要把“场景”安排在海面上或者游泳池。但是,这不是重点,我的烦恼…就是想不出怎样安排这出完全不合逻辑的故事,它发生的情节能够让看戏的人、听戏的人心服口服。 老实说,就是对于怎样把这般荒谬、滑稽,丝毫没有逻辑的故事处理得丝丝入扣,合情合理,我几乎绞尽脑汁,甚至昼夜不寐,沤心泣血,到头来都不得不竖起“白旗”。但是,我却是心不甘、情不愿。为什么别人就能够创造这样的故事,而且许多人还相信了呢? 不错,有脑筋灵敏点的网友,应该已经晓得我要说些什么...
