A film producer is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the creation and production of a film. A film producer must have a clear vision of a film or story and can see the project from its early conception stage to its final product. Depending on the size of a project, a producer will wear many hats and most possess unique skill sets. Film producers handle a variety of responsibilities including selecting a script, coordinating writing, directing and editing, and arranging financing.
