Roles and responsibilities

A video producer works as a coordinator on film and game productions much the same way a general manager controls a sports team.

In the field of video, the producer is equally as important as the actors or director to the success of a project. From film producer to music video producer and even video game producer, there are many different types of producers.

A film producer has the most managerial role of all producers.

The biggest responsibility of a film producer is securing funding for a picture. Before most decisions are made, the producer solicits investors in order to ensure there is enough money to create a movie. After that, each production is different, but a producer normally is in charge of everything from choosing a script to hiring a director, choosing actors, suggesting edits and marketing.

When the shoot is happening, it is the producer's job to ensure that all of the various parts of a film shoot come together seamlessly, such as coordinating food, shooting locations and transportation for the crew.
