I'm doing all the sound design and music for a short film challenge, right now -- the film has to be uploaded by midnight this coming Monday (the 2nd... technically it's the 3rd, but that's just splitting hairs). Like all film challenges, we're behind where we want to be, and there's a huge press to get things done.
Yesterday, the editor and director spent 7 hours shrinking the film to fit inside the 7:06 time limit. As of this writing, they haven't gotten the final edit to me.
What she has gotten to me is that now she insists that the editor help me with the audio, because he knows what she wants. That, to me, is just not going to work.
The points being: 1) I don't know what audio editor he has, but it's not what I'm used to 2) My rig isn't easily portable 3) Having him at my place isn't an option at all (so says the wife), and I don't work out of a studio 4) the editor and I live 40 miles apart
How do I tell the director that I feel the editor and I can just communicate via Skype?
