Film Producing School

Chances are many of you know a film producer but don't know what he or she actually does. The reason for this is film producers wear many hats while working behind the scenes, making what they do sometimes hard to discern. But make no mistake, without them, films, television shows, and documentaries don't happen. 

Under the banner of film producer or "movie producer" are many su-genres: Executive Producer, Associate Producer, Co-Producer and Line Producer to name a few. While many of their duties is to secure financing for a film, producers can also play a vital roll in the creative aspects as well. 

Film Producers hire actors, directors, editors, screenwriters and even other producers, and can also develop scripts. Some producers are also directors and actors. If you're looking for complete and total autonomy, your best best it to become the producer, director, and writer of your own project, just like Spike Lee, M. Night Shyamalan, Eli Roth, Lisa Cholodenko and Kevin Costner to name only a few.
