It is the Producer’s job to arrange shoots so both picture and sound work well. I would get a new Producer.
I sent myself a strongly worded email to this effect.
I then replied that I was a little surprised to receive my email, since, as I knew very well, these were requirements I myself had imposed.
I replied that I was not interested in excuses, and required results, and expected that I would find a way to achieve what I had requested.
I responded that if this was the way I was going to treat myself, maybe I should just find another producer.
I replied that if that was they way I was going to respond, then maybe that was exactly what I should do.
“Fine!” I replied.
“Fine!” I responded.
A little while later I sent an update that perhaps we had let emotions get the better of us, and on some quiet reflection, I could understand where I was coming from, and in the interests of the best outcome for the project, if I was willing to talk about it, I would be happy to discuss further.
Thankful to receive the message, I immediately replied that I felt the same way, and really valued the contributions I had made, and would not have been able to make the progress I had so far without me, and really wanted to keep this valuable team together, so perhaps we could have a coffee together?
I had a coffee with myself, and agreed that we had always been a fantastic team, and we should never let anyone come between us again, and reached a mutual agreement that it was really all Koz’s fault.
Giving myself an embarrassed hug, I resumed work on the project, thankful we had managed to work all the issues out, and resolved to never let anything like this come between us ever again!
