Not only children but also adults like to watch cartoon film The Clever Raccoon Dog.
Because the film is not only interesting but also gives common sense and knowledge.
There is an ordinary university student among those who produce interesting cartoon films without missing rare phenomena in everyday life.
Theme discovered in life
The “Tarpaulin”, Part 71 of The Clever Raccoon Dog, tells a story about the raccoon dog that makes the propeller of the helicopter of the wolf, which attempts to steal canned fish, wound by waterproof cloth by dint of buoyancy generated by differential air pressure, and thus downs the copter.
The scenario of this work was created by Ri Kyong Im, a girl student of the Korean language faculty at Kim Il Sung University.
One summer day, she happened to see that a handkerchief was caught by the moving blade of a fan. At that time, the story told by her grandfather in her childhood came across her mind. It was an anecdote that a vinyl sheet was wound on the rotary wing of a helicopter, thus causing unexpected confusion.
Suddenly, an idea came into her mind.
However, it was merely an initial step.
Tarpaulin may be wound on the helicopter propeller, but she had to have a full knowledge of physics and aeromechanics to guarantee the phenomenon scientifically.
She spent days of quest for the derivation of scientific principle and vivid artistic representation. Instructor An Chol Gwon and other lecturers of her faculty and lecturers and researchers of the physics faculty gave support to her who took the first step in the cinematic world.
“Her creation posture was satisfactory. I saw the bud of competent professional writer in her who always observes and analyses matters and phenomena based on scientific principles with creative speculation and creates works using everyday language,” said An Chol Gwon.
At last her scenario was completed wonderfully, and won the first place in the national scenario prize contest last April.
“Everybody has a dream and wants to fulfil it. However, my dream could never be realized if there was no sincere concern of many teachers,” said Ri Kyong Im.
Born into an office worker’s family in Hamhung, South Hamgyong Province, she was fond of composition in her childhood. After entering middle school, she developed interests in maths and physics and won academic contests.
Watching interesting cartoon films including The Clever Raccoon Dog in ecstasy, she would often indulge herself in the world of science fiction.
She wanted to become a writer of such scientific cartoon films, but her hope was a mere dream at that time.
Teachers of her school discovered in her scientific thinking and literary aptitude. Under the guidance of literature teachers, she won several literature prizes including “Our Classroom” and children’s literature prizes and published lots of literary works.
After entering the Korean language faculty at Kim Il Sung University, the highest edifice of science, she devoted her passion to the creation of works under the guidance of competent lecturers including An Chol Gwon who created TV series No. 1 Player.
Veteran writers spare no effort to help her cultivate the talent as a literary correspondent of the Central Committee of the Writers Union of Korea.
She has won prizes in national scenario prize contests for several years and cherishes an ambition to produce world-famous scenarios.
