if you really saw piggy * page, you should know that its audience is really 2 to 5 years old preschool children.
At this age,
* piggy page is a product of more than ten years. There is no way to find an opponent.
many people do not understand why * piggy is so hot, because you do not understand the characteristics of children’s psychological activities. Even when children laugh and shout that they like the cartoon, you still don’t know why.
you think the painter is superb, the scene is grand, the special effects are cool, the story is tortuous and the meaning is deep.
sorry, kids don’t buy it at all.
* piggy page’s success lies in the precise grasp of children’s psychological characteristics and receptivity.
* the style of
piggy page is simple brushwork, thick and thick coloured blocks. Usually there are no more than twenty colors. But they choose and match very carefully, using bright and warm horse Caron color, and the pattern is very fixed. For example, page is always dressed in red, and George always wears blue clothes. The recognition is very high.
< p > Animation simplifies and abstracts the details of modeling, such as the handling of limbs and fingers, or the handling of hillsides, almost perpendicular to the ground.
due to poor producer level? No, it’s because even if the details are supernatural, the children don’t have the essentials. Instead, they split up their energy and can’t immerse themselves in the whole picture and the plot.
“simplify” does not mean that there is no detail, for example, the pig * s grandmother and the antelope lady’s eyelashes are white. The eyelash is an important mark to distinguish the age of the characters. Similarly, the face lines of the children and the parents are full and the lines of the grandparents’ faces are wrinkled. Like these details that do not exceed the child’s cognitive ability, they can be very keen to capture.
The picture is not only simple, but the music is also super simple. It directly sets the melody of European and American classical nursery rhymes. It can be said that one time, two times brainwashing, one melody can also match different lyrics and appear in different scenes.
The plot is also simple. Five minutes of independent stories are interesting episodes of life. The plot has a beginning and an end, and there are no details. It’s easy to understand, and it’s not difficult to repeat.
two, “social” theme:
‘s “social man” is boring, but one thing is right * piggy page is really committed to building a “society”. Although the protagonists are a group of anthropomorphic animals, the world in cartoons is not a fantasy continent, but a very realistic town.
For example, in all kinds of social relationships, besides going home and kindergarten, children visit relatives, visit neighbours, lodge in friends’homes, call each other, write letters, and even make foreign pen pals. When they encounter problems, they need to consult professionals. Friends will naturally divide into “best friends” and “ordinary friends”.
, for example, occupation, basically every “adult” work, pig dad is an engineer * *, pig mother is a work writer at home, Miss Rabbit has several jobs, Su Yi’s father is a postman, Pedro’s father is an optometrist, Freddie’s father is a businessman, and so on. Their incomes and classes are ambiguous, but they send a more important message: Every adult needs a job, jobs can be varied, but relatively fixed, and so on.
P > For example, in all kinds of places and scenes, in addition to home and kindergarten, there are supermarkets, hospitals, pet clinics, parks, playgrounds, buses… And so on, and different places show corresponding functions and order.
, for example, the economy, cartoons clearly conveyed that “what is needed for life is money to buy *”, and pig dad receives all kinds of bills every month. In kindergartens, children also play games for salesmen, sell all kinds of things, kindergartens also organize charity bazaars, buses and coins in carnival. The project will receive “one yuan” and so on.
It is impossible for children at this stage to distinguish between imagination and reality. The most important thing is for them to deepen their understanding of real life and the real world and gradually find the boundaries without depriving them of the space for daydreaming. If you show them Cats and Mouse, they really think it’s dangerous to flatten their heads with a pan and get them back to normal.
* because the background setting height has restored the real world, the language used by piggy page is the spoken language used in our daily life. Vocabulary and sentence patterns are enough to cover every aspect of life. There are no complicated long sentences and exaggerated tones, and there are few difficult to understand the proper nouns. It is a language that children can easily understand. On this basis, a slightly more difficult word or sentence will emerge from time to time, but the next plot will be immediately explained and used in the specific scene. This “slightly harder than the current level” design is very consistent with the principles of pedagogy.
* I have to say that the Chinese translation and dubbing of piggy page has done a good job of preserving the advantages of the original.
four, characteristics of different age groups
P > Page and her friends are five years old. Their younger brothers and sisters, like George, are about two years old. Page has a cousin named Chloe, aged 6-7. The Chloe family later adds a younger brother. The whole preschool age is basically covered. The animated cartoon is not just for fun but for deliberately depicting the different characteristics of children of all ages, and even for a special episode to show how a family spends all night caring for a newborn baby.
For example, two-year-old George often cried, but Page rarely cried. She was very good at expressing her sorrow or making demands in words.
And at George’s age, it’s easy to become inexplicably obsessed and dependent on a particular object (not necessarily a toy), just as George can’t live without his dinosaurs, but Page isn’t so obvious.
P > George had a sudden stroke in an episode and kept asking why, which is a necessary process for children and a manifestation of their logical development.
P > Susie has an episode about Lion Leo, an “invisible friend.” Yes, when a five or six-year-old is bored with life, he is likely to fantasize about a personalized “invisible friend.”
For example, George always wants to join Page and Susie’s game. Page goes to his cousin’s house, meets older children, and especially wants to be with them. But older children always hate to play with “children” and deliberately alienate them. You can tell this by a little deeper contact with the children.
So how can you make them dislike Page and her friends when they see them as if they see themselves?
The characters in
cartoons are not perfect. Page and George have many shortcomings. Pig dad loves to boast, lazy, sloppy and blind. His mother is a bit of a * * * e, pig grandpa and dog grandfather are stubborn, hamster veterinarians are careless, and so on.
While depicting their flash points, the animated cartoon deliberately points out these shortcomings and gives them trouble and lessons at the right time, but does not allow them to completely correct them, but retains the shortcomings and the authenticity of their character. I really envy the children who can watch this cartoon from an early age, so they will know that there are no shortcomings of tall, family and friends together is not perfect, but love and tolerance.
There was an episode in which Page and Susie fell apart and then they made up, not because anyone gave in and their parents didn’t do much “ideological work” for them, but because they reconfirmed their common denominator, stubbornness, in the course of the argument.
I think * piggy page’s handling is very good, especially for many parents who are self indulgence, demanding perfectionism for their children, and being furious to eradicate any so-called “bad habits”. This is actually inappropriate and unscientific.
It’s probably the longest article I’ve written lately, but I still feel like I’m missing a million things. I’ll take time to add them.
in short, * piggy page and the works listed by the title are not the same thing at all. If the “Page phenomenon” puzzles you, I think it’s a good opportunity for you to try to care about children, value children, and understand the meaning of this work for children.
instead of looking for a duel with a sword everywhere.
