Find Film Producers for Your Projects
A producer is responsible for initiating, coordinating, supervising and managing the creation and production of movies, television shows, web series and commercial videos. A film producer is the go-to person for the production of a film and is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the creation and production of the film.
What Does a Film Producer Do?
A film producer can best be described as the business head of the film. A film producer is involved at every stage of film-making: from inception to post-production to release. Film producers finalize the script of the film, develop a storyline, ideate with the director and the cast and also oversee the contract agreements with actors. He develops a shooting schedule and creates a detailed plan of action and ensures that the film is completed within the stipulated budget and time. He is responsible for hiring production crew, including the technicians and the cast and acquiring and disbursing funds. After filming is complete, the producer works with the post-production crew to polish the film. The final stages include screening the movie with test audiences, developing a promotional campaign with advertising and marketing firms and creating a business plan for distribution.
A film producer normally delegates some functions to executive producers, co-producers, line producers and associate producers. An executive producer typically represents the film studio and ensures that the movie is within budget and being made the way the studio wants. A co-producer shares the producer responsibilities and is essentially a partner to the producer. A line producer handles the physical aspects of a movie's production. An associate producer takes care of certain aspects of production as assigned by the producer, for example coordinating with artists.
While the main film producer typically has his own production company, independent film producers also provide freelance video editors, where they undertake production for a video. The video may or may not be for mainstream cinema and could be used for education or training purposes.
