Citation Siyuan Xing. On the Media Difference and Media Resemblance from Drama to Film in “Mr. Donkey”. LNEP (2021) Vol. 1: 134-139. DOI: 10.54254/2753-7048/1/ICEIPI_186.
Drama and film have a lot of differences in media expression. The differences in the treatment of contradictions, the treatment of plots and the construction of characters between the film "Mr. Donkey" and the drama "Mr. Donkey" can reflect the media differences between the drama and the film. First, drama emphasizes the stage, while film emphasizes the sense of reality. Second, the conflict of drama is concentrated, while the conflict of film is progressive. Third, drama is about integrity, while film is about focus and detail. Fourthly, the climax of drama often includes the dramatic actions of characters, while the climax of film can be interpreted through audio-visual language.
