The Rise of Otaku - Chapter 383 - Recruiting A Crew
Zhou Yu’s sudden diligence also satisfied his friends’ desires for delicious food. After a period of monotonous egg dishes, a variety of regular dishes also started to appear. Sichuan cuisine, Lu cuisine, Huai cuisine, Guangdong cuisine, Hunan cuisine, all kinds of Eastern and Western cuisines appeared one after another, completely amazed the employees of the park.
However, it was such a dilemma for those girls who were on a diet. Although their minds told them not to go, their bodies would walk toward Zhou Yu’s house to participate in the food party subconsciously. Every time after the meal, their weight would rise a little. After a few days, they dared not to look at the scale anymore.
It lasted for almost half a month before the feast activity on the balcony came to an end, which made the girls feel relieved and lost.
Zhou Yu finally got what he wanted, a C-rated homemade animated gourmet script, a super luxurious dish based on the theme of the amusement park. It was also a theme cake, which was something that he was good at. There were 7 layers from the top to the bottom. It took Zhou Yu a lot of work and time to get it done. Each layer had the iconic buildings of the amusement park and some cute little people, which made it look like a sky garden.
Comedy eggs + Slice Of Life wheat flour + scallion honey, those were just the main ingredients. There were also various script fruit ingredients as decorations. In short, Zhou Yu had used anything he could think of, so it was simply luxurious.
However, even though Zhou Yu worked very hard for it, it still only received a C-rated evaluation. It made him wonder what kind of cooking level was required to make a better script? Could it be that he needed to be a chef like Gordon Ramsay?
As soon as the giant cake was taken out, the little maid started to drool. However, it was a pity that her boss, who used to be very generous, suddenly said that only he could eat this cake, and no one else could touch it.
In the room, facing such a huge cake tower, Zhou Yu covered his face and sighed for a long time.
Why is it so big? How can he finish it?
The so-called gourmet scriptwriter is to combine the ability to make food with the ability to grow script ingredients to make a scripted delicacy, and then eat it completely. Only after the delicacy was eaten completely, then the script would appear in his mind. In other words, Zhou Yu must now finish this cake alone.
For Little Muli’s dream to come true, Zhou Yu could only sacrifice himself.
Zhou Yu’s appetite has always been good, but it was still impossible for him to finish this cake tower in one go. In a conservative estimation, it would take at least two or three days for him to finish it. If he could not finish it before it became spoiled, then it would be even more tragic.
Therefore, for the next two days, Zhou Yu hadn’t eaten anything else. All he ate was this cake. In the beginning, he was actually quite surprised that his skill has improved, but after he ate too much of it, he began to regret it. He even started to question what was wrong with himself. Why would he want to make such a big cake? It seemed that it was necessary to continue to learn from the twin chefs and improve his cooking skills before preparing any more script.
This was the only thing he learned after spending two days eating a cake.
However, regardless of the process, the script problem was finally solved. After finishing the cake with difficulty, a complete story suddenly popped out in his mind. He rushed to the computer and typed it out as quickly as possible. Because Zhou Yu was worried that the food script would be the same as Doraemon’s memory bread; after he took a dump, all the script in his mind would disappear.
For this reason, he didn’t even dare to go to the toilet for two days.
However, it was later discovered that the gourmet script did not have this problem, but when he wrote it out, it slowly disappeared over time.
Anyway, the script problem was solved.
. . .
Now that he had the script, it was time to decide the schedule of shooting.
On the same day, Zhou Yu found Lou Xiaobao and forced him to agree to participate in this children’s drama “Aliens in The Amusement Park.”
Lou Xiaobao was a natural actor. Otherwise, he would not be able to become famous so quickly with just one movie. However, what happened afterward made him decide to quit the entertainment circle, and now he just wanted to be a martial art instructor in the amusement park.
In the summer camp, Lou Xiaobao was still very popular. He would teach children to practice martial arts at a fixed time every day, and sometimes, he would show off his lance skills, which naturally would impress a lot of children. Coupled with the handsome appearance, the young female teachers would always come during the martial arts class with hidden intentions.
However, although Lou Xiaobao’s heat had been broken once, he did not put on a cold face. For him, this was a good job, and a little bit of teasing would not hurt him. If possible, he just hoped to stay in the amusement park and live such a simple life.
However, his senior brother did not intend to let him go easily.
“Making a movie? Senior brother, I have left the entertainment industry already.”
Lou Xiaobao was a little reluctant. It has been a while since the movie “Assassin” became popular, and there were not many people who could still remember him. Why would the senior brother want him to be an actor again? Could it be that there were some problems with the operation of the amusement park, and they needed more movies to gather more funds?
However, Zhou Yu still had the mentality of a child: “It’s not about asking you to come back to the entertainment industry, why are you scared? The main reason is that I have been very bored recently, so I just want to find something to do. In the past, all the movies we made were all animated, and there were no real people, so I suddenly want to make a live-action movie.”
Zhou Yu would always do the things he wanted to do without considering the cost issue. However, if it was just a private shooting, and it was not about returning to the entertainment industry, then Lou Xiaobao didn’t have a problem with it. Besides, inside his heart, he actually quite enjoyed his acting experience.
“Think about it, Yuanyuan doesn’t have many days left. If she could participate in making a movie, she would be thrilled.”
Although Xiaobao seemed to be very indifferent to Yuanyuan’s situation, as Xiaobao’s senior brother, Zhou Yu knew very well that this guy, who had very rich emotions, was the most sentimental towards a dying person. So when Zhou Yu used this excuse, Xiaobao found it very hard to refuse.
Sure enough, Xiaobao sighed and nodded in agreement: “Okay, I will join, but I need to make it clear first, I can’t guarantee that my acting skill is still that good. After all, I haven’t acted for a very long time.”
Yes! Zhou Yu successfully recruited the first crew member.
