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 a 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.
