雙色鳴奏

2018年方始,秉承口號「狂熱如初」,本年的Chessman藝人造型照一改去年的強硬軍事風,以烈火般的熱情,早春般的溫柔,為十位藝人塑造看似對立卻相互融和的兩面,象徵一眾棋人無忘最初進入娛樂行業的熱情,為開創更廣闊的未來繼續航行。

本年度的形象核心來源於年度口號「狂熱如初」,有別於過往以一種色系作為主軸的形象設計,「以最能體現出澎湃熱情的紅色,以及象徵萬物萌芽的粉紅色作配搭,體現出棋人們重拾最初的赤子之心,透過重新燃起的那一團火,萌芽出新的可能。」小肥的解釋無疑已為新的藝人形象下了最好的註解。

除了更具玩味的雙色系配搭外,今年的造型及拍攝團隊陣容更是令人驚喜。再度由本地著名攝影師About Chong掌鏡,伍家怡笑道:「得知今年的造型照會再度和About合作,即時對拍攝過程和成果都感到十分安心。」也許是彼此已有默契,所以是次拍攝時各人都能更自在地擺pose以及和攝影團隊討論細節。談到再次合作,About笑言,如何呈現兩種截然不同的風格是是次拍攝的最大挑戰,幸好在和棋人們的相互配合下順利克服困難。

妝容及髮型方面,由首次合作的本地團隊The Elements Salon全力支持,而服裝方面邀請到台灣著名造型師Vivian Lin為眾人設計造型,擁有十年造型師經驗的Vivian曾為羅志祥、愷樂等著名台灣藝人作服裝搭配,眾棋人藝人皆對她讚不絕口,其中古卓文更道:「平日都鮮少嘗試粉紅色等較青春粉嫩的顏色,但Vivian事先已研究過我們日常的風格,設計出合適但又有一點跳出界限的造型,十分專業。」澳門、香港、台灣三地團隊,新與舊碰擦出不一樣的火花,成果定然不容小覷。

十七年,以常人的年歲來說只是青春少艾,然而棋人立下先河,扎根澳門整整十七年,要如何在下一個十七年到臨前,堅守胸中的洪洪烈火?也許這一切,將由十七年前勇敢植下的初心引領。

野火從不曾燃盡,試煉過後春風臨境,新芽定當再萌。

In company with the 17th anniversary slogan “Be As Passionate As You Were”, the new batch of public relations photos have been grandly released in this first half of 2018. Different from the cool unisex military style of last year, this year’s photos display a perfect juxtaposition of passion and tenderness on the 10 artistes. This symbolizes all Chessman members will always maintain the same passion for entertainment industry to create a brighter and more prosperous future.

The theme of this year’s photoshoot stemmed from the slogan “Be As Passionate As You Were”. In the past, we often use only one main color for image design, but we made a new attempt this time. “By blending red and pink, which best represents strong passion and the birth of all creatures respectively, our pure hearts are manifested. Through rekindling the fire in our hearts, we can create new possibilities.” Siu Fay’s explanation has given the best definition for the new image of the artistes.

Besides the duo color combination, the styling and photoshoot team were also a huge surprise. This year, we collaborated with the famous local photographer About Chong again. “When I came to know that we are going to work with About again, I feel very relieved with the process and result.” Cherry Ng said with a pleased smile. The artistes had great chemistry with About, and therefore they could made different postures and discussed the details more freely during the photoshoot. About said the most challenging part of this photoshoot was to present the two totally different styles, but he was able to tackle the problem with the cooperation of the Chessman artistes.

Regarding the make-up and hair styling, we were pleased to work with local team The Elements Salon for the first time. Moreover, we invited Vivian Lin as our stylist, who possesses 10-year experience, and had worked with a number of well-known artistes including Show Lo and Butterfly Chien. She was highly praised by all the Chessman artistes. German Ku said, “I seldom wear pastel colors like pink, but Vivian has studied about our daily clothing styles beforehand and created styles that are completely different but still fit in with us. She is so professional.” It is not surprising to see how successful this photoshoot was under the collaboration of different teams from Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Seventeen years old. To many people, this age may represent youth; but to Chessman, it is certainly a milestone that marks our growth. How to keep the fire in our heart before the next 17 years roll around? Our pure hearts will lead the way.

Wildfire does not burn completely. As spring arrives, all creatures will begin to grow again.
