What is Producing?

The process of filmmaking can be divided into three sections – creative, technical and financial. While different teams take care of each section, it’s the job of the producer to tie them all together. The producer brings together the writers, director, financiers etc. and has complete control over the film’s production. Thus, the producer not only needs to know about all these different jobs but be good at them as well.
