What Does a Producer Do on Set?
In the best case scenario, a producer does as little as possible on set. Because if they’ve done their job, everything has been prepared in advance. But let me back up. I like to make the joke that producers do a little of everything and get none of the credit (except maybe when there are receipts to count or an award to accept). But seriously, all of the decisions about what a movie is about, how it will be made and who will see it are filtered through the producer’s office.
