My point remains that the main reasons for the time it's taken for this to be completed lay primarily at the feet of the producer, who made the post-production decisions he made for the reasons he made them. He wants it finished a particular way, even when there may have been other ways to complete it.
Ah... so there were NOT
other ways to complete it then.
If the producers think it should be finished a certain way, then it should be finished a certain way, as they are the ones who know what they want the finished product to look like. Thus, refer to my first statement.
