Hangzhou Big head Son company said yesterday, Liu Zedai never specifically authorized CCTV "big head son" and apron Mother's Image copyright. CCTV only on the 95 version of the cartoon enjoy copyright, to three pieces of art itself is not entitled to copyright. Since then, in 2013, CCTV animation company launched the "new Big head son" animated TV dramas and movies, the story and the image of the big head son adapted creation.

The claim was denied by the CCTV animation. CCTV animation in court yesterday said: "At that time the director found Liu Zedai said to do animation, and later Liu Zedai in the director and other people's request, on the spot painted three paintings, that is, the head of the son and apron mother prototype." And at that time the oral agreement agreed, this animation modeling copyright is owned by CCTV, CCTV out of respect for Liu Zedai, only in the TV play signature design is Liu Zedai. ”

Yesterday, Liu Zedai and 95 animated film director Tri Shi as a witness in court.

Two 77-Year-old man, recalled more than 20 years, that three hand-painted pencil painting.

Liu said that in 1994 he seconded to the Shanghai branch film Factory work, Lao Cui proposed creation three modelling, at that time he used the pencil, on the spot drew the big head son and the small father, the apron mother three images. "In my house, I did not speak to whom, but only commissioned me to create." No contract, no cost. ”

Unfortunately, the manuscript was not able to stay.

"At that time I took the manuscript, more than 20 years, has long gone, but also the first draft, also not much value." I just like the taste of it, the image of the head and the proportions. Except for the hair retention of the big head son, the others have to be done again. "director Cui said, Liu Zedai sketch is a creative intent, and not suitable for animation, but also need a lot of details."

He also said that after coming back to invite young creators, after detailed changes, made a facial, dynamic, location map. And at that time animated cartoons are manual, the operation process is complex. In addition to Liu, a large number of staff to create together, the entire number of people involved in the project, the cycle is very long, Liu Zedai just sketched a creative map and then did not participate in the creation.
