There were a lot of lost scenes, so Lin Fengtian hurried Zhang Luo to start filming again to make up for those.
Today, the video editor was sorting out the tapes of the filmed scenes.
Yan Bingqing, who happened to be passing by, went in and calmly stood behind him. She watched him sort out the tapes in hopes of seeing how she had performed on screen.
She was quite confident in her performance this time.
Apparently, it would not matter if she did not look.
One look, and she realized that her scenes were reduced by a lot. She was shocked.
She and many other supporting actors had been edited out from many scenes during the sorting.
On principle, although she was not the protagonist, she was still a relatively important character in this film.
The scenes she shot were not fewer than Yun Shishi's.
However, once the editor sorted out these scenes, hers were a whole lot fewer.
In many of the scenes that she and the newbie acted together, the screen time was all given to the latter, whereas hers was reduced.
There were many important plot bridge sections that merely flashed her scene, and then everything was over.
It was clearly an important part, but the screen time was given to that newbie…
She estimated that the rookie's screen time occupied a whole 70%!
The longer she looked on, the angrier she felt; her heart twisted in anger!
With nowhere to vent her anger, she viciously clenched her fists so hard her sharp nails dug into her palms' skin.
She bit her lower lip hard and then left.
Not long after, she sent out an assistant to get her answer.
The editor was almost done with his work when the sleuthing assistant presented him with a cold drink to relieve the summer heat. Without reporting where she was from, she very casually led him to the topic.
"Master, have you finish editing all these scenes?"
The editor was grateful for her consideration. Work was over now, so he had spare time to chat with her. "I'm not done editing yet; I just finished sorting out the footage and will still re-edit them later."
"Say; I took a cursory glance at it and promptly noticed a majority of the selected scenes are of Yun Shishi."
"Well… These are all chosen by Director Lin," the editor answered ambiguously.
This little assistant, who had followed Yan Bingqing for years, was of course an experienced person; hence, she chatted about random things for a while to dispel his vigilance before she returned to the topic.
"There were many scenes Yan Bingqing and Yun Shishi acted together; why did Director Lin pick that newbie's scenes but threw away Yan Bingqing's?"
At this time, the editor was no longer on guard and frankly answered, "I was here when Director Lin chose these shots, and I watched him do the picking."
"Oh? Any gossip?"
"I say, why do you gossip so much? It's better not to ask too many questions in the production team." The editor lit a cigarette and squinted.
The little assistant's looks were quite pretty, and she acted coquettishly to him. The editor could not resist confiding, "Director Lin said that Yan Bingqing looked too old in some of the scenes. Furthermore, she acted more of a white lotus than a rebellious high school student."
"Oh, so that's it…" The little assistant made a mental note of this as she continued to listen.
"You haven't seen her act those scenes, but I tell you, even I could not continue watching."
The editor confidently added, "Previously, I heard that this Yan Bingqing is a vase. Regardless of her role, she acts like a white lotus. The crucial point is that her character is a rebellious high school student this time, yet a few scenes actually showed her pouting or pursing her lips; Director Lin definitely wants to cut those parts."
