昨天才翻完美國西岸 BABSCon 的編劇訪談內容,今天又要帶給大家同樣來自 BABSCon 的導演座談會內容翻譯啦!這週末真的是非常精彩,西岸馬聚邀請到的來賓陣容如此強大也是令人嘖嘖稱奇,好羨慕住國外的馬迷們啊!希望八月在美東舉辦的 BronyCon 也能有如此重量級的特別來賓。不過雖然無法親赴海外參與馬聚盛會,至少在網路發達的今天我們仍可以透過訪談摘要一探究竟,現在就讓我們來看看馬迷們對小馬劇集的導演們提出了什麼問題吧!

(注意:此摘要可能尚有缺漏,如果要求一字不漏的朋友可以試著找找看 Youtube 上有沒有人貼出座談會的完整錄影片段)


本次出席的導演有:

Jayson Thiessen
Big Jim Miller

Quick Notes:
首先是一些訪談重點摘要

DJ-Pon3 was just an afterthought DJ for fun during the episode, and evolved because of us. She probably never would have returned. Hasbro really liked the fan reaction and wanted more.
DJ-PON3 最初只是出於好玩幫劇中登場的 DJ 小馬所取的名字,原先可能根本沒有為這角色安排任何後續戲份,但孩之寶發現馬迷們反應非常熱烈,所以才有了後續的發展(出玩具、出 EQG2 短片)

Bulk Biceps/snowflake was borned out of a joke at a board meeting about a random pony that kept interrupting with "YEEAH!" He eventually ended up with massive muscles and an actual part in the show.
最初只是半開玩笑的想創造一隻經常會大喊「YEAH!」打斷其他角色說話的小馬,後來變成有著發達肌肉的大隻馬還在劇中有了顯著的戲份,「肌肉棒子」這個角色就這樣誕生了。

Episodes are completed about 8 Weeks ahead of the air date.
每一集動畫會在播出日期的八週前完成。

They feel satisfied with the overall arc of season 4.
他們對於第四季整體的劇情線感到滿意。
(應該是指貫穿全季的彩虹之力)

They still have Lauren's intentions in mind, asking themselves how she would have done things and staying true to the characters that were established by her, with their own spin on it of course. They constantly ask themselves how they can make it more entertaining and fun to watch.  
他們仍記得蘿倫當初的意向,在編導時會自問「如果是蘿倫的話會如何為自己所創造的角色做適切的安排?」當然也會加入一些他們自己的想法。也經常自問怎麼做才能讓劇情更有趣更吸引人收看。

They were born in 1976 and 1977, so expect the Star Wars and general pop culture references to continue long into the future.
兩位導演出生於 1976 與 1977 年,所以可以期待在未來看到更多星際大戰或流行文化的哏出現在劇中。

Jayson spent quite a few nights trying to get the live action shot of Boneless to work, including crafting the rubber chicken on his own.
Jayson 花了好幾個晚上研究如何讓「無骨雞」的實體拍攝順利進行,那隻橡皮雞是他自己做的。(聽說拍完照腳就斷了)

Q&A:
接下來是問答時間

What's the difference between a 22 minute episode and full movie from your end?
22 分鐘的劇集和完整長度的電影對你們來說有什麼不同?

In a small episode they are much more stressed for time to keep it within the required length.  A lot of things are cut to make room.
較短的集數為了要配合時間長度所以製作上較有壓力,為了橋出時間所以許多事物會被砍掉。

In a longer format, you don't need to sacrifice as many of the scenes you really want to cover, and it lets you build up the scenes longer.  
製作較長的電影時則可以不用犧牲太多想放入的內容,場景也可以獲得充份的建構。

Did Equestria Girls halve season 3?
第三季是否因為 EQG 所以縮短成只有十三集?

No, they knew season 3 was 13 episodes before Equestria Girls even popped up.  It was a budget thing. They had decided on season 3 before the craze of bronydom hit, so the ones funding the entire idea of a G4 revamp had to be cautious.
不是,在 EQG 這個提案尚未出現還有馬迷們爆炸以前他們就知道第三季只有十三集,當時是預算問題,所以那些投資 G4 的金主不得不更謹慎。
(最後一句有點不太確定是在指什麼,Revamp 意味大改造,不知道是指相較於 G3 還是指往後的發展)

First reaction to a job working on Pony?
對於接下「彩虹小馬」這份工作的第一印象?

A lot of them weren't too excited to work on a show for little girls, but the material Lauren came up with sold them on it for the most part.  
最初他們對於製作給小女生看的節目並不感到興奮,但是蘿倫提出的企劃在很大程度上說服了他們。

Do you see yourselves as a longer term cartoon like the Simpsons?
會把這部作品視為像「辛普森家庭」一樣的長壽卡通嗎?
(辛普森家庭播出至今已經達第 25 季,演出超過 25 年)

With every loose thread that is tied up, another new chance appears (twilight becoming a princess).  Each season hopefully has a satisfying end with potential to explore more until Hasbro stops throwing money at it.
當所有事物都彙整到位後,就出現了新的轉機(紫悅變成了公主)。他們希望每一季都能有令人滿意的結局並留下值得繼續探究的伏筆直到孩之寶不再出資製作本節目為止。
(希望可以像辛普森一樣演個二十幾年!)

How much influence does Hasbro have over the overall show?
孩之寶對於整個節目製作的影響有多深?

The writers come up with episode ideas, sometimes Hasbro execs bring something up, and they too bring some up.  Everyone collaborates on each idea.  Sometimes Hasbro doesn't like the direction something is going in with the brand, but overall they are super supportive of what they want to do.  Mike Vogel and @Wheelofcheese really help out.  
由編劇負責寫出劇情點子,有時候孩之寶會否決一些想法同時也會提出他們想要的。劇情點子會經過所有人共同討論,有時候孩之寶可能會不喜歡某些走向,但整體來說對於導演與編劇們還是非常支持的,Brian Lenard(監製)和 Mike Vogel(副總裁) 都幫了很大的忙。

What inspired them to become directors?
為什麼想當導演?

Jayson started as an animator without ever thinking he'd become a director, but over time with more experience and interest he started getting more involved with stuff further up the chain.  Jim had a similiar story, with more focus on story telling.  
Jayson 原先只是一名從沒想過要當導演的動畫師,但是當經驗與興趣逐漸累積,他在這個產業開始涉獵的範圍也越來越廣。Jim 有著類似的背景,比較著重在劇本上
(以前可能也是編劇之類的)

What things did you love that you had to leave behind due to room?
有沒有你們很愛但是礙於時間長度而無法放入劇中的事?

The G1 Face in Too Many Pinkie Pies was cut twice before finally making it into season 3. In Luna Eclipsed Rarity dresses Luna as a pink princess, complete with Tabitha already finishing the voice acting on it, but there wasn't any room for it.  
碧琪做出 G1 馬臉的橋段在終於正式放入第三季之前其實被剪掉過兩次。在 Luna Eclipsed 中,珍奇把露娜裝扮成粉紅公主的片段則是已經請 Tabitha 配音完成,但沒有時間了只好剪掉。
(可惡!想看!)



Watercooler talks around the office?
在辦公室都聊些什麼雜七雜八的事?

Game of Thrones, Breaking bad, Cosmos, general science stuff, and dorky things overall.
「冰與火之歌」、「絕命毒師」、「宇宙無垠」(科教節目)、普通科學還有一些很宅的事。

Whats going on with the wilhelm scream in MLP?
彩虹小馬劇中出現的「wilhelm scream」是怎麼回事?
(被超過兩百部電影愛用的罐頭慘叫聲,不過我沒印象在哪集有出現過)

It is a long standing tradition with audio guys. They like to give everyone the chance to add fun little things. Sometimes they have to axe it just because it takes away from the narrative.
這是音效界長久以來的傳統,他們喜歡讓所有人都有放入有趣小細節的機會,只是有時候因為與劇情不搭所以會被砍掉。

Do you ever send something to Hasbro just to see if it will be rejected?
你們有沒有提出過什麼提案只為了看孩之寶會不會否決掉?

They like to push it as far as possible, because a lot of times Hasbro will surprisingly agree to something.  They prefer to ask forgiveness not permission. Sometimes simple things in the show like ponies wearing safety gear or objects being less sharp looking are requested.  
他們喜歡盡可能越深入越好,因為許多時候孩之寶會出乎意料的接受某些提案。他們喜歡請求原諒更勝過請求允許。有時候他們則會被要求要讓小馬穿上防護裝備或是讓物件看起來不要那麼尖銳。(畢竟是兒童節目,所以小史在騎滑板車時一定會戴安全帽)

How was it to work with Weird Al? And the general Weird Al Story:
與 Weird Al 共事的感覺如何?(起司三明治的配音,同時也是知名歌手「怪人奧爾」揚科維奇)

When the PMV popped up covering Weird Al's song, and he responded to it, Jayson sent him a message for fun asking if he'd like to voice a character on the show.  After an entire year, Al finally sent him a direct message apologizing for taking so long to get back to him, and saying he'd be up for it.  
當初使用 Weird Al 歌曲的 PMV 出現時 Jayson 就有詢問他是否有意願為彩虹小馬的劇中角色配音,在經過整整一年的漫長等待後奧爾終於回應致歉並表示願意參與配音。

Jayson got to fly down to L.A. to work with Weird Al.  He was extremely friendly and easygoing about the entire thing.  He really cared about making it good, including hours to almost a day of music recording.  He wanted it to be absolutely perfect and commited fully.  The coolest guy ever essentially.
Jayson 為此特地飛去洛杉磯與奧爾共事,他對所有事物都非常友善親和,對於工作更是處處希望做到最好,甚至花上數小時甚至是一整天錄製歌曲,就是期望能夠達到完美,他最酷了!

When the episode aired, Jayson got an email from Al saying it was the best episode he had ever seen and that he and his daughter were over the moon with how well it turned out.  
當 Pinkie Pride 播出後,Jayson 收到奧爾來信表示這是他看過最棒的一集,奧爾和他女兒都對如此精彩的呈現感到欣喜若狂。

Flash Questions:
再來是一些簡短的快閃問題

Do they enjoy the animation that comes out of the fandom?
你們喜歡由同馬界所製作的動畫嗎?
(可惜孩之寶的律師團可不喜歡)

Yes!
喜歡!

Have you ever had a script axed completely?
你們有砍掉過整個腳本嗎?

Yes!
有!

呼!寫到這裡總算是又翻完一篇,雖然是一個忙碌的週末,不過對於我這種超愛看訪談的馬來說真是甘之如貽,剛剛發現似乎還有第二段編劇訪談,如果有空的話我會繼續把他翻完的,感謝各位的閱讀!
