So here I am 6 months later. I didn't realize at the time that I had not been logged in under my account when I asked this question. So I hadn't received any email updates on this topic.
So here is what I learned from this experience:
What ended up happening:
I had gone along as the sound effects editor, reviewing the OMF tracks to see what needed to be cut in as SFX. I gave it a full set BG and as many synced SFX as I thought it needed. I had asked the Dialogue editor to send me what he had done so that I could watch the whole thing down before I turned it in. When I loaded the tracks, I was shocked to see that he had only cut the interview material and had discarded everything else from production sound. I fully expected some surprises but this was huge. I worked overnight and cut all the material that was skipped.
The whole project was edited and mixed in 12 days. The Supervisor was overextended and was impossible to communicate with during the edit and I barely slept through the whole thing.
Client was super happy with the result, we all had beers when it was all over!
What I learned from this experience:
1) When the deadlines are tight, communication must increase, not decrease. Make sure everyone is on the same page before you start.
2) Your work suffers when you do! -- I have made considerable effort to keep myself healthy, rested and sane since this project.
I still would like your opinions on what happened here. It has been my experience that the Dialogue Editor handles EVERY thing production related(even is they sounds are not edited, they get prepped on tracks so they at least make it to the mix, just in case). The SFX editor ADDS sounds to create the world, realism and as much emotional content as he/she can.
