Minneapolis, MN asked in Contracts for Minnesota

Q: Am I in the right or in the wrong? Do they have concrete evidence?

I signed a contract for a shortfilm that was to be completed in May though it doesn't actually say that in the contract. I got into an altercation with the producer a while ago because he wasn't going to pay one of the makeup artists her money. I told him if he didn't pay her, I would not come to the last shoot. He said he’d give her the money. Although everything was taken care of the producer brought in his father and threatened to sue the makeup artist and I if I didn't show up on the last day. The producer now wants me to come in to do more voice work. I gave him my availability which isn’t as open. His father is threatening to sue me again saying I’m not doing what I signed in good faith. He said he’d sue me and the makeup artists for trying to sabotage the film and extortion. I never tried sabotaging anything. I’ve stayed late and came on days I wasn’t called, he’s still saying I haven’t done my part. His father managed to scare the makeup artist and now she doesn’t want her mone

A: Too little information is known to provide a concrete answer in this situation. I would need to know the contractual arrangement between you and the other party.
