Chapter 626: Box Office of 4 Billion Yuan?
After a while, the waiter brought a cup of coffee over. Su Yang thanked him and took a sip. The coffee tasted bitter and it was not as good as the coffee in Chu Xia’s mother’s shop.
‘They’re both coffees that cost more than 20 yuan, yet there’s actually such a huge difference.’ Su Yang instantly deemed that coffee shop to be an unethical shop…
Su Yang drank his coffee and looked out of the window. His gaze returned to the other customer in the shop. That customer was still drawing non-stop as if he was drawing a truck. However, the truck had a sci-fi vibe and was different from the modern ones.
With just a few strokes, the man had already sketched out the shape of the truck. It was very technologically advanced. One could tell that he had a good foundation in drawing. Even Su Yang, who had the ability to paint, had a desire to communicate with him.
With Su Yang’s current wealth, status and strength, most of the time, he wanted to be carefree and be completely free.
Since there was still some time before their meeting, Su Yang waited for the man to stop drawing and examine the drawing. Su Yang then stood up and walked over. “Is it convenient for me to sit here?”
The man did not expect someone to suddenly appear before him, especially a man. He was stunned for a moment, but he still said, “Yes, please have a seat.”
As he spoke, he quickly tidied up the sketch in his hand and moved half the table out for Su Yang.
Su Yang sat down and looked at the drawing in his hands. He asked, “Are you a student from Shanghai University? Are you in the arts stream?”
The man smiled and shook his head. “No, I’m just passing by. I simply like drawing.”
Then, he sized Su Yang up and asked, “You… Are you an arts major?”
Su Yang shook her head as well. “I simply like drawing as well.”
Su Yang took out a piece of paper and a pen from his pocket and started drawing.
Within a minute, the sketch of the cafe appeared on Su Yang’s paper.
The man’s eyes widened in surprise before he praised, “You have a deep foundation in drawing. Your foundation is solid. Looks like you’ve been working hard.”
Su Yang smiled and shook his head. “No, I just closed my eyes and learned it.”
The man burst into laughter, evidently thinking that Su Yang was joking.
While the two of them were chatting, Little Hus’s voice suddenly rang in Su Yang’s ears. “Su Yang! Su Yang! We’ve got a big issue!”
Su Yang’s expression did not change. He took out the glass screen and gestured. “Wait a moment. I need to take a call.”
The man nodded and gestured for Su Yang to do as she pleased.
Su Yang stood up and walked to the side. He placed the glass screen beside his ear and pretended to make a call. However, he was actually chatting with Little Hus. “What’s wrong? What happened?”
Little Hus’s voice was trembling as she said, “The fragrance, it’s very strong! It seems to be from the same source as what I smelled on Guo Xiaoying! But it’s much clearer!”
Su Yang was confused. “What do you mean from the same source? Is he related to Guo Xiaoying?”
Little Hus replied, “Yes! He should be the source of Guo Xiaoying’s scent! When I first smelled her scent, I could feel that her scent was intermittent and unclear, but the total amount was huge.”
“Now that I look at it, it’s probably coming from this man!”
Su Yang’s eyes lit up. ‘So this man is Guo Xiaoying’s uncle, Guo Fan?
‘And that big project that could earn 1.3 billion yuan… Is the sci-fi movie, “Wandering Planet”?’
Su Yang felt his heart heating up.
‘The investment in a sci-fi film can’t be less than 300 million yuan, right? If I go according to a profit of 1.3 billion yuan, that means its profit distribution would be at least 1.6 billion yuan. So, the box office would be more than 4 billion yuan!
‘Is there a movie with a box office of more than 4 billion yuan within the country right now?
‘I remember that the most popular movie right now seems to have been achieved by last year’s “Transformation 4”! 1.979 billion yuan! It’s not even 2 billion yuan yet!
‘And now, a movie with a box office of more than 4 billion yuan is right in front of me!
‘What’s there for me to hesitate about?!
‘Especially when this is a very popular sci-fi movie!
‘This is practically a milestone for Chinese movies!’
With that thought in mind, Su Yang wanted to go up and have a good chat with Guo Fan! In his eyes, Guo Fan was no longer a passerby in a cafe, but a gold ingot shining with a gold brilliance!
‘Forget about the impact this movie would make, just think about the money I would earn! 1.3 billion yuan! In cash! With that much money, I could speed up many of my plans!’
Just as Su Yang was overwhelmed with emotions, Little Hus’s voice rang in his ears again. “Wait! Wait! Su Yang! Something’s wrong!”
Su Yang was confused. “What now?”
Little Hus said, “I feel that his scent is deeper than Guo Xiaoying’s, but… it doesn’t seem to be the innermost core. It seems like someone more important than him is in charge of this project.”
Su Yang was confused.
‘What the h*ll? There are so many twists and turns!
‘However, it mustn’t have been easy for Little Hus to sniff out so many things, so I can’t ask for more. It has already given me a lot of information in advance, so I could save a lot of time.’
With that thought in mind, Su Yang placed the glass screen into his pocket and took a deep breath to adjust his condition before walking forward.
Seeing that Su Yang had returned, Guo Fan took the initiative to greet him. “You’re back. Oh, right, I wanted to ask you if you’re able to work part-time outside of class. I have a project that might require some artists.”
Su Yang did not answer his question. Instead, he stopped in his tracks and sized him up. Just when Guo Fan was confused and suspected that there was food on his face, Su Yang suddenly extended her hand. “Brother Guo, right? Hello, I’m Su Yang.”
Guo Fan’s pupils constricted and his mouth opened slowly. Shock was written all over his face. After a while, he stood up abruptly and reached out to hold Su Yang’s hand. “Ah? Su? You’re Su Yang?”
Su Yang nodded. “Yes, I’m Su Yang. I’m Guo Xiaoying’s senior and friend.”
Guo Fan was stunned again. “Senior? You’re a student of Shanghai University?”
Then, he patted his own head. “My goodness, you’re so young. You’re definitely a student. This brain of mine…”
“Mr. Su, come, please have a seat. I’m sorry. I really didn’t expect you to be so young.”
Thus, the two of them sat down. Su Yang felt that Guo Fan did not really understand his situation, so he asked out of curiosity. In the end, he found out the whole story…
At the same time, Su Yang also cleared up the matter why Guo Xiaoying had a nice scent on her, but her father, Boss Guo, didn’t.
It turned out that Guo Fan loved drawing when he was still in school. He had also studied drawing before, but his family wanted him to be a lawyer, so they made him study law in university.
During his university days, Guo Fan did not give up on his hobby. He spent his free time drawing comics. Gradually, he became famous. His comics even received awards overseas.
Therefore, after graduating from university, he eventually went against his family’s wishes and started a comic-related career.
While he was working, he had read the novel “Wandering Planet” and was impressed by the magnificent imagination in the novel. Therefore, he wanted to recreate this scene that had the grace of a planet.
However, this kind of science fiction was too boring to be recreated using anime, so it was more suitable to be filmed on a big screen. Therefore, he went to learn directing and successfully moved the investors last year to get the chance to direct his first movie.
He also knew that to make such a large sci-fi movie, other than the best special effects technology, it also required a large amount of scenarios and props. Therefore, as he filmed his first movie, “The Girl At The Neighbouring Desk”, he started to draw the equipment and settings for “Wandering Planet”.
Because he could not finish such a large amount of work alone, he had found his niece last year, hoping that she could help him find some students from the art faculty to help him design props and equipment.
Su Yang, on the other hand, was a pleasant surprise.
After watching “Wolf Warriors” a few days ago, Guo Fan realized that although there weren’t many special effects scenes in Wolf Warrior, those wolves were especially good at showing the production capability of special effects.
The hair, the rendering, the action, it was not an exaggeration to say that it was real. If he had not been a professional who had paid attention to the end of the video and seen the filming crew for the special effects of “Wolf Warriors”, he would have missed it!
After he found the company, Guo Fan looked into the company and found the account of the company on Findme app.
In the end… He happened to see the video that Su Yang had filmed [Virtual Space Descent]. He was stunned right on the spot!
This was because he could not see any signs of special effects when he watched the video of “Heaven And Earth Splitting Apart”. It was even more realistic than the real wolves.
However, the sky was falling, the earth was cracking, the lightning was rumbling and the terrifying atmosphere was definitely not something that happened in the real world. Therefore, Guo Fan could only believe that it was the result of Su Yang’s company’s production!
Therefore, he secretly decided that he had to find this company and get them to produce his movie!
Guo Fan had a good relationship with his niece, so he mentioned “Wolf Warriors” and Su Yang’s company when they were chatting. However, Guo Xiaoying happened to know Su Yang and asked him for help.
From the beginning to the end, Guo Xiaoying only said that Su Yang was her friend. She didn’t mention that Su Yang was her senior. Hence, Guo Xiaoying didn’t know Su Yang’s actual age and identity. Therefore, there was the misunderstanding just now.
When Su Yang heard that, he could not help but smile. ‘What a coincidence, I guess we’re fated to meet then.’
Just as he was laughing, Su Yang’s phone rang.
Su Yang picked it up. It was a call from Guo Xiaoying.
Su Yang picked it up and asked, “What’s wrong, Xiaoying?”
Guo Xiaoying said with a whisper, “Senior… I’ve got some matters to attend to over here, so I might be a little late. If you’ve arrived…”
Before she could finish her sentence, Su Yang interrupted her. “It’s fine. You don’t have to come. I’ve met your uncle. We’ve been chatting happily. So, you go ahead and do your thing.”
After that, Su Yang hung up.
Guo Xiaoying was confused.
‘What the h*ll?’
