  Recently, the first "Sanxingdui" adventure animated film "Crazy!

Guibao: Three Star Treasures" was released.

The film tells the story of "Gui Bao", a genius boy in Shenjing City, who accidentally broke into a mysterious different-dimensional space through his own invention, but accidentally made a big mistake.

In order to make up for this mistake, Guibao and his friends came to Sanxingdui Museum to find out the truth, but they were unexpectedly involved in a bizarre golden rod storm, and an unknown eternal mystery was about to surface.

The film contains elements of national style, knowledge points of Sanxingdui, and Bashu culture. For the first time, the civilization of Sanxingdui is presented in the form of an animated film, but from the perspective of perception, it can be said that adventure, science fiction, mecha, comedy, traditional culture, etc. stew.

  Many viewers' comments on the film are that it draws on many elements of super blockbusters and tells a rather inspiring story. Children can feel the positive energy such as friendship and preciousness while watching the film, and they can also appreciate this fantasy adventure. The charm of China's excellent traditional culture.

  In the past two years, the archaeological achievements of Sanxingdui have continued, and film and television producers have also created Sanxingdui-themed works while they are still hot.

The documentary "Seeing Sanxingdui Again", which is currently being broadcast, panoramically tracks the highlights and mysteries of the excavation process of the Sanxingdui site. It uses new photography techniques and three-dimensional animation to present the results of contemporary archaeology, and the audience has responded well.

8K documentary "Immersive!

Take you into Sanxingdui" presents Sanxingdui cultural relics with a shocking visual.

According to statistics, there are no less than 10 Sanxingdui film and television works currently under preparation, including the animated film "Golden Mask", the movie "Sanxingdui", "Sanxingdui's Enlightenment and Prosperity", "Sanxingdui of Ancient Shu Kingdom", "Sanxingdui Visitor", and "Treasure Hunt: The Prominent Gold of Sanxingdui" Mask", documentary film "Sanxingdui Shenqi", etc.

  In addition, after the site of Jixia Academy was confirmed in March this year, the historical and cultural documentary "Jixia Academy of Warring States Great Hall" was broadcast, which wonderfully reproduced the style of a hundred schools of thought.

How to "revitalize" traditional culture

  Animated movie "Crazy!

In order to restore the Sanxingdui picture to a high degree, the creator of Guibao: Sanxing Treasures has consulted a large number of historical documents about Sanxingdui, and has visited Sanxingdui Museum, Sanxingdui Ruins, Taoping Qiang Village, Chengdu Jinli Ancient Street, Wuhou seven times successively. In the process of collecting scenery, I came up with many interesting plots and wrote them into the script.

The audience can see the use of cultural relics such as bronze figures, golden masks, and Sanxingdui golden rods in the film, and the use of scenes such as sacrifices in ancient Shu, Sanxingdui ruins, Chengdu Wuhou Temple, etc. Hot spots are integrated into the plot.

Combining Sanxingdui civilization with children's adventure stories is a good attempt to "revitalize" traditional culture. It can arouse the audience's curiosity about history and culture through interesting stories.

  If the imaging of archaeological sites in documentaries should focus on academic, professional and knowledgeable nature, then the main criteria for films and TV series related to archaeology and cultural expositions should be whether they are entertaining and storytelling.

For example, the film "Zodiac" 10 years ago took the adventure of "rogue" as the main plot, telling the story of the protagonist looking for the last four animal heads lost in the zodiac.

The film combines the thrilling and exciting treasure hunt with Jackie Chan's kung fu action and comedy elements, which is both entertaining and inspiring.

Movies related to cultural and excavation archaeology, such as "The Da Vinci Code", "Dante Code" and "Wonderful Night at the Museum", which audiences like very much, are actually weaving the rich history of cultural relics and instruments, art history, etc. in a story of personal heroism.

In "Antique Bureau Middle Game", which focuses on the return of Buddha's head and other cultural relics, the protagonist uses Morse code, secret words, constellation maps, secret passages, etc. to search for cultural relics. "Story Mode.

  Last year, the tomb robbery-themed cartoon "Sacred Tree of Qinling Mountains" sparked discussions because its premiere was to be held at the Sanxingdui Museum in Guanghan, Sichuan. place.

The inspiration for the story of "Qinling Sacred Tree" by the third uncle of the Southern School actually came from the Sanxingdui Bronze Sacred Tree.

However, many people think that tomb robbery is not archaeology and damages the image of archaeologists. The two cannot be confused.

It can also be seen from this incident that under the "archaeology fever", how to make archaeological results into film and television, what direction to look for, etc. are all problems that film and television creators need to face.

  Most of the film and television works involving Sanxingdui, Haihunhou and other sites have yet to meet the audience, but judging from such successful works before, the audience may not want to see those hunting stories under the guise of archaeology and cultural relics, but It is a work that can truly present the archaeological value, historical and cultural value of cultural relics through wonderful and eye-catching stories.
