  "Script kills the movie" attracts attention, immersive, interactive, and tasteful

  As a popular offline entertainment method nowadays, script killing, escape room and film and television are becoming more and more closely linked.

However, compared with escape room movies, "script kill movies" is a new concept that has only appeared in the past two years.

  Last year, the domestic film "Make Your Famous" caught fire.

The story setting of the film is very similar to the gameplay of the script killing: on a dark and windy night for a month, a group of unwilling filmmakers gathered in a villa to remake a major case into a movie. Discuss the truth of the case.

  After the film was released, many audiences became addicted to reasoning in the ups and downs and exciting plots. The immersive and interactive experience is very suitable for the tastes of young audiences. Strong word of mouth also made the film's box office continue to rise, and finally won 9.26 100 million yuan, becoming the "dark horse" of the market.

  After "Famous" became popular, the emerging concept of "scripts kill movies" accelerated related films to "break the circle". Previously released "The Uninvited Guest", "Knives Out", "The Wind", "The Invisible Guest" and "The Orient Express" Movies such as Murder are also classified as "script kill movies".

  "Script Kill" is a reasoning game that first appeared in Europe and the United States, and it is an existence similar to a court hearing.

Nowadays, this kind of game incorporates more acting elements. Players can not only become detectives responsible for solving cases, but also become parties to cases or even murderers.

  In 2016, the first season of the variety show "Star Detective" premiered on Mango TV, and it was updated at a rate of one season a year.

The "out of the circle" of the show accelerated the start and popularity of the script-killing game with a low threshold, strong social interaction, and heavy experience.

  Film and script kill "two-way blood transfusion", the road to integration is long and difficult

  The popularity of the offline market has allowed script killings, which naturally have some similar factors, to interact more with the film and television industry.

The examples of "marriage" are increasing day by day, realizing "two-way blood transfusion".

  At present, film and television works such as "Celebrating More Than Years", "Detective Chinatown 3", "Assassination of the Novelist" and "There Is Her in the World" have launched the same-named script killing, and the popular script killing "Annual Ring" has also been announced for film and television adaptation, which is expected to be realized. Feedback to the film and television industry.

In addition to the authorization and adaptation of IP, the two are also playing more and more in marketing.

For example, before the release of the movie "Assassination of a Novelist", the script of the same name was listed first, and a marketing campaign of "play the script and get a movie ticket" was launched, trying to use the popularity of the script to boost movie marketing.

  With the prosperity of the script killing industry, more and more film and television talents have been attracted to join.

For example, many film and television screenwriters have switched to the script-killing screenwriting industry, with higher creative freedom, higher income, and optimistic industry prospects.

Nowadays, the script killings around "murder cases" are not only "killing", but also different types such as emotional, joyful, witty camp, and hard-core reasoning, which are enough to bring rich experiences to different players.

  However, the road to integration of "script kills film and television" is still a long way off.

First of all, in terms of creation, the copyright issue is complicated, and the tastes of consumers on both sides are also different.

These all require constant practice and exploration by creators in both industries.

  Some people in the industry believe that movies such as "Famous" and "Escape Room" are essentially typical suspense film narrative modes, but because these entertainment methods are popular, coupled with the film's marketing, it is easier for everyone to substitute.

To make a real "script kills movie", the most important thing is to cultivate good IP, and then think about film and television.

  It is worth mentioning that the script killing also experienced the phenomenon of "acclimatization" in the creation of film and television IP books.

Some films are very popular, but they do not have the conditions to be adapted into scripts.

Therefore, it is very important to find the content direction.
