I am a sound designer for theater and have a question about credit/compensation for past work. I designed sound for a production at a regional theater, and this year a sequel is being mounted. I got a chance to see the sequel and recognized aspects of my design - either my original samples were being used or, more likely, close approximations.
Now, obviously if I were talking about wind and car doors slamming there would be no argument. But there are complicated and sort of abstract multiple part cues that I created with the director last year, and that he has instructed a different sound designer how to reproduce (I couldn't work on the sequel for logistical reasons).
Am I entitled to credit or compensation? If this were a pure remount the answer would be definitely Yes, but what about a sequel in the same world?
