Hello, I'm a Producer from Mexico and I really need advice on how to handle a situation. I made a feature film back in 2008, it won some festivals but I never couldn't get distribution. The film was 120 minutes, so I recut the film to 90 minutes, deleted a lot of scenes and added some other cool scenes that were not in the first cut. Anyway, in order to finish the new 90 minute cut, I have to redo the sound design. I always work with a friend from LA, I brought him to Mexico to record the sound during Production and he also did the final sound design of the film, he was paid and everything and he has all the sound of the film. I approached him to do the new sound design of the film, the job was pretty expensive so I told him that I couldn't get that amount of money anymore, so he told me he could do it for free on his free time but with an Associate Producer credit but that it would take him a long time to finish. So I made a deal, I offered him $6,000 dollars upfront and an Executive Producer credit so he could have it ready way sooner, he agreed, paid him the $6,000 dollars immediately... This was a year ago and I still don't have a finished film. He is always busy doing commercials where he gets paid a lot, he tells me that the project is a mess and that he has to sync everything by eye, because all the plugins on his protools session have been updated so it's a total mess. Ok that I can understand, but then he tells me that he hasn't had days off to work on it and that he has spent way more hours than he expected... This project was supposedly to be done in 2 months max... It's been a year and one month already, I've setup deadlines that have been completely ignored because he's been busy, I just don't know what to do anymore, he has all the sound, the foley that I already paid for, because I told him to use what we already had, no new foley, no new anything. What am I supposed to do now? Any advice is welcome and appreciated.
