Top: File photo taken in the 1960s by Lin Hui shows artist Wan Laiming conceiving character images for animated cartoon "The Monkey King" (Part Two). Bottom: Photo taken on June 20, 2019 by Liu Ying shows Su Da, president of Shanghai Animation Film Studio and director of the 3D animated film "Sun Wukong" (Monkey King), viewing modeling design of the monkey king. In the 1960s, Wan and his team members created the animated cartoon "The Monkey King" with more than 100,000 hand-drawn frames. Today, high technology such as 3D animation has been used in filmmaking by Su in her new film. China's animated film industry is now creating new glory and success. In 2019, "Ne Zha" became the first domestic animated film ever raking in over 4 billion yuan (about 564.1 million U.S. dollars). In 1949 when the People's Republic of China was founded, the Chinese people faced a devastated country that needed to be rebuilt from scratch after decades of warfare and chaos. After decades of unremitting endeavors and dedication by the Chinese people, China has grown to be the world's second largest economy. In 1952, China's GDP was 30 billion U.S. dollars, while in 2018, its GDP reached 13.61 trillion U.S. dollars, an increase of 452.6 times. A group of combo photos give you a glimpse of what Chinese people did decades ago and what they do right now. Undoubtedly, people from all walks of life in China with hard work and wisdom have made contributions to the country's development. (Xinhua)
