|Director Fan Lixin (right) talks with Bai Jugang Cheap PJ Tucker Jersey , a young star featured in his documentary film.
They are called the "super boys" and "super girls", as descriptions of achievers among China's post-1990 generation. However, a section is often tagged with stereotypes of vanity, shallowness and selfishness.
The criticism largely hasn't deterred the rise of some skilled youngsters to stardom, as evident from the multiple talent and reality TV shows across the country.
Behind their masks of confidence, however Cheap Robert Horry Jersey , lie faces that also seem confused, sad and sometimes angry.
In Wo Jiu Shi Wo (I Am Myself), a documentary film based on recordings of backstage scenes from the 2013 Super Boys competition, young contestants are seen struggling for around 100 days leading up to the finale with issues such as crumbling families, unstable friendships and the constant pressure to "become a celebrity".
The official English title of the documentary is No Zuo No Die, a catchy Chinglish phrase recently listed in the American online Urban Dictionary. It literally means "dying while asking for trouble". As last year's most popular cyber idiom in China Cheap Clyde Drexler Jersey , it was perhaps originally intended to be a sarcastic projection of the post-1990 generation but ended up showing off its die-hard spirit.
The film attempts to justify Chinese TV's young stars and celebrates a decade of televised talent shows in the country.
In 2004, Hunan TV took the initiative by producing Super Girls, China's first American Idol-style talent show, and followed that with Super Boys in 2007. For the first time, the Super series allowed Chinese audiences to vote for their favorite contestants.
Young idols such as Li Yuchun, described as an "Asian hero" by Time magazine Cheap Charles Barkley Jersey , were born.
In the past decade, TV viewers in China have seen several shows similar to the Super series. But none has managed to match its success in building a fan base or gaining social influence.
It was through millions of fans that the film crowdsourced around 5 million yuan ($810,000), which secured its successful shooting and a nationwide release in theaters on July 25.
Though industry insiders undervalue its performance at the box office, Long Danni, head of EE-Media which co-produced the Super shows Cheap Steve Francis Jersey , believes that at least 100 million yuan can be grossed. The money will go toward making two more films featuring its young stars, she says.
Long's confidence is boosted partly by director Fan Lixin's reputation. Fan is an award-winning documentary maker, known for his works on social realities, and was selected in 2013 by The New York Times as one of "20 directors to watch".
He rose to fame with the documentary Last Train Home, which recorded the annual journey of migrant workers from their urban workplaces to rural hometowns for Spring Festival.
The film won more than 60 prizes in different countries, including best feature-length documentary award at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam in 2009.
Prior to directing No Zuo No Die Cheap Tracy McGrady Jersey , Fan hadn't watched any Super shows but he took the job because in addition to questions they raised about society, he was curious to see the people who are "the country's future".
"While they feel stressed inside what appears like a machine that makes stars, they struggle or compromise in their own ways," Fan says. "It makes me think that every one of us is in the middle of a talent show. It's more a social metaphor than a simple TV program."
These days Fan describes himself as a showman jumping from location to location to promote the value of documentaries. He says that directing the film was a "practical choice", too, given the influence the young stars hold in the market.
Chinese film distributors and cinemas have shown little interest in documentaries.
Securing a nationwide release in China for a documentary was an uphill task for the makers of No Zuo No Die.
Despite the critical acclaim Last Train Home received globally Cheap KJ McDaniels Jersey , very few cinemas across a handful of cities showed the film.
"I hope good documentaries will prove to the market that the film has a reason to exist," he says.
To maintain the quality of his work, Fan says he has avoided making No Zuo No Die a flattering piece and has kept it as realistic as possible, something that his genre of film making demands.
In No Zuo No Die, there are reflective moments where the participants become aware that the program is "draining their souls, turning them into commodities" and that fame can fade quickly.
"But of course the audiences are allowed to see for themselves. Some of them can read between the lines Cheap Michael Beasley Jersey , while others may see it as pure entertainment," Fan adds.
Otherwise known as a lady’s ring, the eternity ring is made with a full circle line of gems that are cut into equal sizes. This ring is typically given by a husband to his wife as a symbol of his love. There is also an option of having a half eternity ring. This ring only has gems on the top side of the ring, half way around the band. In 1960 a merchant, De Beers, created the very first eternity ring. Recently Cheap Corey Brewer Jersey , many jewelers have made the diamond eternity rings much more popular.
Full Set versus Half Set
In most cases, the diamond eternity rings that are created have an entire band full of diamonds. Although the full around diamond ring may feel a little uncomfortable at times, it presents an elegant look to the hand that is wearing it. This type of diamond eternity ring is usually made with smaller diamonds which makes it a custom made piece of jewelry. There are some more practical reasons that people are going with the half eternity ring though. The first reason is that it is more comfortable to have the diamonds just on the top of the ring. You can easily have this band created and have the size adjusted since the back will be just gold. The price is also a little .
