Lives for gear

Some years ago I mixed a very strange feature that had two directors. One wasn't a replacement for the other, they were partners in crime. During the mix there was a fair amount of disagreement between them but they always worked it out except for one reel, which they were so far apart on that they decided to mix it twice - once for each director and then they would see which was better.

After we mixed both versions we watched them back several times and both directors started lobbying everyone in the room to vote for their reel, but no way was anyone going to give an opinion so the argument went on and on and on and got more and more heated. Finally a UPS driver walked on the stage with a delivery for someone so the two directors grab him and make him sit down and watch both reels and then tell them which one he liked best.
