Fang Hui had just arrived in a hurry. When she ran to Lu Chen's office, her face was flushed, her forehead was covered with fine sweat, and her expression was anxious with a trace of shame.
"Lu Chen, I fired my agent!"
Lu Chen was taken aback, and quickly got up and said, "Sister Fang Hui, don't worry, sit down and speak slowly if you have something to do."
Fang Hui realized that he was wrong, nodded and sat down on the sofa.
Lu Chen made her a cup of tea.
Fang Hui was not too polite, took a sip from his teacup, and felt much calmer.
She was really pissed off by her cousin.
After the Chinese New Year, Fang Hui has been shooting a 10-episode indoor skit. This is the task she took over last year. Although things are very different now, she has no idea of breaking the promise.
In this industry, credibility is very important. No one likes to work with someone who is old: to reap the consequences of one's words (idiom, from Mencius).
However, the investor nevertheless is very reasonable. The director's pay for her has been doubled from the original agreement, and the treatment in Film Crew is excellent, which is completely supported by the big coffee of the show business community.
Including those actors, whether they are famous or not, one by one "directors" and "directors" shouted with enthusiasm, and the attitude was absolutely respectful. No one would dare to throw big names in front of her.Fang Hui has been a director for many years, and nevertheless was treated with such respect for the first time.
She knows why.
Because she Fang Hui filmed a phenomenal TV Series last year, which not only broke the record in China, but also created a miracle of ratings in South Korea, in the show business community win instant success!
Since the beginning of this year, many film and television companies and investors have come to ask her to direct, and some of the opening conditions allow her to feel a rush of excitement.
It's just that Fang Hui is currently working on it. The most important thing is that Lu Chen intends to continue to direct the new drama to her, so Fang Hui politely declined the invitation of others.
Unexpectedly, Chen Fei'er called her today and revealed that Lu Chen was having trouble with her agent. Maybe the new drama had to find someone else to work with and ask her what's going on?
Fang Hui was confused at the time.
Her agent talked to Lu Chen Workshop about the contract for the new drama. Of course, she knew it. After all, there was a problem of interest. It would be better for the agent to come forward. Everyone does not need to be embarrassed about the film pay.
But because he is busy with the finishing work of the indoor drama these days, Fang Hui did not take this into consideration. Anyway, Lu Chen's new drama will not be launched immediately, but he never expected to wait for such a result.Fang Hui immediately called her agent, her cousin Fang Jun, to ask.
Under her coercive questioning, Fang Jun had to confess the truth. It turned out that he added a number of clauses to the new contract without authorization, in order to obtain the maximum benefit for Fang Hui.
And Lu Chen's categorical refusal was unexpected by Fang Jun. He also wondered if this was Lu Chen's bargaining strategy, and he was prepared to compete patiently with Lu Chen. In short, Lu Chen could not be cheap.
In Fang Jun's view, even if he doesn't continue to cooperate with Lu Chen, Fang Hui can still cooperate with others. Those investors who come to the door are willing to spend a lot of money. They are more sincere than Lu Chen.
He is also thinking about Fang Hui!
After Fang Hui listened, he couldn't wait to slap him on the spot.
What is short-sightedness, just look at her cousin, it's so stupid!
Given Lu Chen's personality, he will not treat those who follow him badly. He asked Fang Hui to continue making new dramas. The primary reason must be nostalgia. After all, the cooperation between the two parties is very pleasant.
But this does not mean that Lu Chen will agree to some unreasonable requirements, such as copyright sharing.
Fang Hui was really going to be pissed off by Fang Jun. Even if it was a bargain, it would be rude to make such a request in the contract, and it made her lose face.As for those investors who came to the door, the conditions they offered were very good, but they were actually using her current fame to make hype. The scripts provided were basically imitations of "Blue Life and Death".
If the screenwriter is wonderful, it’s fine. To be honest, Fang Hui feels spectacle too horrible to endure after seeing many plots, and she knows that these investors usually have actor role arrangements. It’s often seeking instant benefit, and the last thing that comes out is a donkey's lips do not match a horse's mouth.
She has a bit of fame now, but it is easy to ruin her reputation.
In contrast, Lu Chen is really too reliable. Fang Hui prefers to join his new drama with a low salary, and is not willing to go to others in order to make more money.
As long as there are two or three popular Episodes, her position in the show business community is very stable, making money easy.
It's a pity that Fang Jun couldn't see this. He was blinded by the benefits in front of him, and he was too greedy.
Fang Hui even knows that Fang Jun has close contacts with several investors.
She didn't care at first, after all, everyone was a little selfish, but now she can't tolerate it, so she kicked Fang Jun away decisively and came over to apologize to Lu Chen in person.
She would never forgive herself if she missed this opportunity.After listening to Fang Hui's sincere explanation, Lu Chen was also a little embarrassed. To say that he should ask Lu Xi to sign a new contract with the other party earlier, so that it would not cause trouble to the present level.
But mend the pen after sheep are lost it is not too late, since the misunderstanding is solved, then everyone can nevertheless continue to cooperate.
Fang Hui's work attitude and ability to master the plot are both appreciated by Lu Chen.
He said: "You don't need to kick someone out. I will ask Lu Xi to re-negotiate the new contract with him."
It is common for a broker to think for oneself and act accordingly for the client, and Fang Jun is Fang Hui’s cousin. The conditions proposed are outrageous, but they are also fighting for Fang Hui’s interests.
Fang Hui shook his head resolutely: "It's not just this matter, you can just ask Lu Xi to draft a contract for me."
Her meaning is very clear, that is, if Lu Chen opens a condition, she will agree to it.
Lu Chen doesn't deliberately cheat her, isn't it?
Lu Chen really wouldn't do this, and he smiled: "Then out of the question, wait until you find a new agent to talk about it."
"By the way, I made an appointment with Sister Li to visit Jingying in the afternoon. Sister Fang Hui, please go with you too!"
Hearing these few words, Fang Hui finally fell to the ground and smiled: "Should you cast a cast for the new drama? Is your workshop planning to sign some new people in?"It is very common for celebrity Workshop to sign newcomers. With Lu Chen's talents and strength, it is too simple to win a few newcomers.
Lu Chen shook his head and said, "I'm going to get Sister Li's Company to sign, so we can cultivate good seedlings together."
Fang Hui understood immediately, her eyes lit up and she clapped her hands: "Then I might as well sign with Sister Li!"
This is the best way. Sister Li is outstanding in the show business community public praise. Fang Hui will not suffer from signing in the past, and it has brought closer the relationship with Lu Chen, which is completely one move, two gains.
Lu Chen was stunned, and immediately smiled: "Then you can talk to Sister Li, let's go together."
He left the Workshop with Fang Hui and drove to Beijing Film and Television Collage to meet Sister Li.
When the two arrived at Jingying, Sister Li was already waiting at the gate of Collage with his assistant.
Seeing Fang Hui, Sister Li was a little surprised.
Because she heard some wind, saying that Lu Chen's new drama did not plan to cooperate with Fang Hui, and was looking for another director.
The rumors are obviously unreliable.
But after meeting and chatting for a few words, Sister Li understood that Fang Hui was interested in signing a contract with his agent, Company.
She smiled and said, "That's really great, as long as you don't think our Rainbow Company is small, the conditions are good!"The Rainbow Agent Company run by Sister Li is quite famous in the industry. There are many artists and several directors under its contract, but they are all small directors of the third and fourth lines.
In the entertainment industry, the position of directors of film and television dramas has always been the highest. The first-line directors basically open their own workshops, picking film companies or TV stations to cooperate, and will never give in to a company like Rainbow Brokers.
Fang Hui was originally a second- and third-line director. With the drama "Blue Life and Death", he has become the first-line director of the TV Series. It can be described as promising.
She was willing to cooperate with Rainbow Brokers, which was a great surprise to Sister Li.
Directors like Fang Hui can be used as the company's pillars, and they work well enough to take Rainbow Brokers to the next level.
Sister Li, of course, welcomes with his hands up!
