Chapter 368: Movie Director Found – 1
No matter how angry Mu Changqing was, there was nothing he could do. He nodded and led Fu Zhi into the hotel. Then, he took Mu Chenxi to the balcony.
It was lively inside the hotel. There were plenty of wealthy people walking here and there, talking to each other.
A short distance away was a special section known as the “poor zone” with “poor students” who were in dire need of help.
Song Fang still could not quite come back to his senses. “Sister Zhi. I apologize for saying this, but you’re so f*cking cool!”
The surprised expression on Mu Chenxi’s face was still vividly clear in his mind.
At the same time, Su Xing asked, her eyes glowing bright, “Zhizhi, do you really know Pure Feather?”
Fu Zhi replied, “Yeah. Anyway, you guys just walk around first. I still have other matters to handle. I will introduce her to you guys in the future when a chance arises.”
Well, she could introduce her to them right away. It was just that she did not know if Su Xing could take it or not.
Apparently, she could not. When she heard that she might be able to meet her idol face to face, Su Xing’s heart leaped into a gallop, her mind went blank, and she could do nothing but follow Song Fang around mechanically.
Fu Zhi did not know what to say when she saw that.
The host was introducing the future possible bigwigs in the “poor zone” to the guests in the hall.
Truth be told, from the moment she saw a group of men in provocative clothes surrounding a few wealthy women, she knew that she had come to the wrong place.
Not far away, a clean-looking young man was talking about an investment with Bai Yao.
“We just need to sail from our country to the Pacific Ocean. It’s been proven that the resources over there are particularly abundant, and trust me, madam, mining can never go wrong. Besides, the government has said that it can meet the needs of the annual production of 3 million tons of polymetallic nodule mining for 20 years. Madam, this is a very good business opportunity. All I need is just 5 million yuan...”
Fu Zhi was speechless.
‘Our government has not even set up an exclusive exploration area to survey and mine in the fracture zone, and you’re saying that you’re going to open up an excavation site over there? Are you really so eager to go to jail? What kind of a cheap scam is this?’
Fu Zhi was amused. Then, she saw Bai Yao grab the aspiring young man’s hand anxiously, pitching her voice low and saying, “Are you sure it is a state-run project? Is it really profitable?”
Fu Zhi did not know what to say.
The aspiring young man nodded. “Yes, of course!”
With tears in her eyes, Bai Yao said, “Then come with me. Let’s continue talking about this business opportunity on the balcony.”
Meanwhile, at the same event...
A man in a suit who looked like he was in his thirties was holding a blue folder in his hand while standing alone in a corner.
There was a great number of agitated youths around him. Each of them was talking to a few rich women about their business plans.
Black technology design, gemstone mining... The asking price started at 60 million and went all the way down to 600,000...
The man frowned.
He felt that these people were liars. Only three or four out of ten people really came to ask for help. As for the others...
He glanced to the side.
The rose-red, floor-length curtains were gently blown open by the wind, revealing a woman in a white gown and a young man lost in an embrace.
The man touched his face and secretly heaved a sigh of relief.
Luckily, he had not been born with an average face.
“What the hell, man? It’s been so long. Why haven’t you gotten a single deal? You haven’t even handed out any business cards, have you?”
Close to him, a young man who had come in with him was looking at him and shaking his head. There were only two business cards left in his hand. “This won’t work. You have to be more active. You have to approach them yourself and talk to them. Each and every one of them. After all, you must cast a wide net to catch more fish.”
“Why can’t we talk to those gentlemen?” the man replied with a straight face. “These women don’t look like they know anything about movie investments.”
Besides, all of them came here looking for a kept man.
“Oh my good brother, do you think they really need your money? Those gentlemen are all doing big business and won’t pay attention to any of us. But if you are a sweet talker and can sweet-talk someone into investing in your business this time, all you have to do is keep repeating the same process at the next event in the next province and you will have more than enough money to spend for the rest of your life!”
“Isn’t this cheating?”
The young man pulled a face. “How can you say it’s cheating when it’s consensual? Furthermore, isn’t it normal to lose money on investments?”
As he was talking, he looked askance at the blue document in the man’s hand. “Times have changed. Considering the current situation in our country, the bigger the movie production, the harder it is for it to succeed. If you don’t have that kind of money, you’d better give up now!” the young man said.
When he saw another target of his, he immediately went up to her and said, “Madam, I have a profitable project that I would like to share with you...”
The man could not bring himself to be as shameless as other young men. Mustering up his courage, he went up to a rich woman and said, “Hi, I have a war movie that I want to...”
“A war movie? Are you kidding me?”
‘And he’s so ugly!’
The rich woman turned around and left, as she did not want to talk to him.
The man sighed.
The young man who had come in with him had already gotten another 200,000-yuan investment with his glib tongue. He, on the other hand, could not even gather two yuan, let alone 200,000.
Honestly, he did not want to get an investment from these people. After all, they demanded a lot. For example, they wanted to promote the newcomers, force them to change the script, add in more scenes, add commercials, or even pretend to understand the content of the film and boss them around.
This was what he could not accept.
However, the money he needed to buy his son’s milk powder and pay his wife’s medical bills were nothing compared to this.
The man took two steps forward and casually called out to a woman again.
It was only when the woman turned around that the man clearly saw her face.
She was not a woman at all. She was at most 17 or 18 years old, and her face was the most beautiful face that he had ever seen.
He surmised that she must be the daughter of a certain wealthy family. After all, she was not wearing a dress on a major occasion like this.
Fu Zhi replied, “Yeah?”
He waved his hand awkwardly and said, “I’m sorry. I got the wrong person.”
He took two steps back, but perhaps God wanted to help him as well, as the moment he stepped back, two papers dropped out of his file and fell beside Fu Zhi’s feet.
Fu Zhi bowed down to pick the papers up and saw something that made her eyes glow.
“Thank you, miss. The papers...” The man pointed at the papers in Fu Zhi’s hand, signaling for her to return them to him.
Fu Zhi flipped to the back of the paper. “You’re the man who directed the Chinese New Year film, Yellow River?”
She lifted her eyes to study the man in front of her.
Compared to others, he was not well-dressed, and even the leather shoes on his feet were a bit worn.
His eyes were bloodshot, and there were dark circles around them. Even though he had covered them with powder, she could see that he had not had enough sleep.
