Pursuing excellence and leading the industry
“The film and television industry is like sailing against the current; we must forge ahead or be swept downstream.” GONG Lin said the film and television industry has limited resources, and we need to be more rigorous than ordinary people’s attitude to the work, meticulous in all the details, so as to achieve excellence and take hold in the industry. Details determine success or failure. In film and television creation, any small and insignificant flaws may ruin the production. Whether it is the script selection, actor selection, costume design, story background or post-production methods, shooting angles, presentation, editing techniques, packaging styles, etc., all need to be planned well in advance and strictly controlled by the producer. In order to present her works to the public in a perfect manner, GONG Lin consults a large number of materials and conducts detailed professional research before finalizing the details of each link to ensure that the historical background, cultural connotation, costume style, and character image involved in the film and television works are in line with the characters and avoid any intellectual errors and omissions. Under her strict requirements and mature planning guidance, her production team has created a large number of near-perfect film and television masterpieces, breaking the original production limitations of the domestic film and television industry, achieving qualitative improvement in all aspects, and creating a new international-oriented film and television production business card. The domestic film and television production industry has also started a wave of the pursuit of details.
Be a good learner and communicator
When asked what has enabled her to remain a film and television industry leader, GONG Lin smiles and replies, “I suppose staying on top of learning is the key to it.” She says that she insists on learning all the time to keep a keen sense of the industry and thus be more able to discover new directions in her creation and create forward-looking and empathetic film and television works.

“Pursuit represents my constant motivation to move forward.” She said she would set up small goals at each stage of her career path, and her love for the film and television industry will also let her scale a new height of the pursuit of art. In the future, GONG Lin will continue to work in the film and television field, devote herself to the research and improvement of production technology, create more and better excellent works, and contribute to the more profound development of the film and television industry.
