Funny? Or too real?

This has been around for a while I guess, but I just saw it so I figured I'd share. It's NLE agnostic... ;-)

Funny, real, and depressing all at the same time.

Doesn't this usually happen on the "flat rate" jobs?

Only thing more perfect would be to hear the producer say- "THATs it - it's PERFECT - we're GOLD!" Then as he's turning out the lights, we hear him talking to his wife on the phone saying - "Yeah, I finally solved it by putting back the original SFX I started with, just 2db louder."

; )

I have done that! Actually just slyly turned up the monitors in the room and suddenly the mix was no longer too soft, but "Perfect".

Or keep playing the same edit back until they say it's perfect.

The times I've done it were exactly as Charlie mentioned below. You play over the edit a few times for whatever reason just to get your bearings or whatnot and then the producer yells "perfect!"

I suppose it depends on how much editing your producer has done.

This is a good place to bring up this oldie but a goodie "the rough cut lady song."

heh... On more than a few occasions when I was mixing someone would request a change, I'd hit replay to match levels for the punch (no console automation in my room at the time), roll through it and before I could start playback to make the change I'd get the "great!" comment.

I'd only tell them I hadn't done anything if I liked them. :-)

That's fun. Been there--never, of course, to that extent. I doubt anyone will ever make the flip side, however, which is trying to get changes made through a vain, surly editor. Having spent a lot of time on both sides over the years, I can tell you that there are definitely two sided to the coin.

I'm not sure you're right for the part. If your in, we'd have to use prosthetics, since the visual metaphor would require the character to be Jabba-the-Hutted into his chair.
