NotesThe producer is also extremely helpful to the director in providing an objective point of view on the film as the process moves along. It should be considered helpful to the director for the producer to look at the dailies and be objective as to what they see. As the picture begins to take shape, the producers objective point of view will help to siphon out minor discrepancies that may plague the film in the future if not corrected. Many times, the director and others who spend countless hours each day with their eyes in a camera do not see these discrepancies. The point of view of the producer may pertain to both the performance and the technical aspects of the film. [ Producer ]
Stage Manager Pages in Theatre Directing
Guilty, I play this game with my students. I ask -- who is your producer?
Here is a long pause.
So, I ask -- What is your budget?
You understand, right?
"How much did you pay for this course?"
Oh, they know it! Good. You are invested that much and you have a partner -- href=http://www.uaf.edu>University of Alaska. But there is a little problem -- you payed to learn, not to produce your movies (the Tish grad school asked in the early 80s to put five big one before you can get enrolled -- for the student film you have to make at the end of first year).
Do you follow me?
In "10 Commandments for Film Directors" I should another one -- NEVER PUT YOUR OWN MONEY INTO YOUR OWN MOVIE!
"You are crazy, Anatoly!" I can read in their eyes. I am not. This is why the most of them will never be filmmakers.
Definition of a Producer: A Producer is someone who initiates a project and oversees it from the conceptual stage through completion. Some producers function as entrepreneurs, answering to themselves. Other are employee-producers, working for an employer such as a film studio or an independent production company. They often function as Loan Out Companies, loaning out their services to management for a designated credit and fee.
Executive Producer: An Executive Producer supervises one or more producers in the performance of all of his/her producer functions on single or multiple productions. For example, all television series producers answer to the Executive Producer.. The same rule generally applies to motion picture production.
The Executive Producer of a television series often functions as the Head Writer, rewriting or polishing the episodic scripts for one-hour shows and in some instances, half-hour sitcoms.
Co-Producer: A Co-Producer is usually someone who works under the supervision of a producer or Executive Producer. For example, someone who has acquired the rights to a property such as a book or a screenplay will often be assigned the role of Co-Producer in acknowledgement for helping to package and sell the project.
Line Producer: The Line Producer is a nuts and bolts hands-on person who is responsible on behalf of management for overseeing the crew and day-to-day operation of the production from pre-production, commencement of Principal Photography, through the Wrap of the shoot. Sometimes, the Unit Production Manager (UPM) will be assigned the dual roles of UPM and Line Producer for a given shoot, in which case that person will receive on-screen credit both as UPM and Line Producer and also be compensated for both functions.
Associate Producer: An Associate Producer performs one or more producer functions which are delegated to him/her by a producer, working directly for and under the supervision of the producer of record. The Associate Producer is also someone who is a nuts and bolts person, working under the jurisdiction of the Line Producer.
