According to Wikipedia, “A film producer is a person who oversees the entire film production. Either employed by a production company or working independently, producers plan and coordinate various aspects of film production, such as selecting the script; coordinating writing, directing, editing, cast, production paperwork, and arranging financing and distribution.”
In short, a producer is in charge of all aspects of production, including the cast, screenwriter, director, finances and the crew. Further, a producer is responsible for all phases of filmmaking, such as, development, pre-production, production, post-production, and marketing. Ultimately, a film producer is responsible for the overall health of the film and accountable for the success of the finished product.
A good producer must be a smart businessperson, key strategist, motivator, sharp negotiator, problem solver, and a creative visionary.

“Real” working set environment
In the heart of the 1855 Antebellum South, slavery is the business that fuels the engine of America. After Jessie Calhoun, a young boy, witnesses the brutal punishment of a family member who decided to escape the plantation, the Calhoun family must make a critical decision, decide if they want to stay and continue to face the everyday tyranny, or risk their lives in hopes of finding a better tomorrow. However, in this warped reality, the Calhoun family legacy is unable to escape the oppression, as through centuries of time, the horrors experienced still haunt them. “Hands Up,” is a story of how the effects and trauma of slavery have impacted and infected America today.
