Types of Producers

Film producers: More likely to be handling lots of details related to complex budgets, clearing rights, and hiring the right talent for big teams.

TV/Line producers: Deal with the day-of details to assemble a newscast, manage a budget, or handle specific details for a shoot.

Field producers: Work with teams on site to tell a story, usually a documentary or feature/nonfiction story.

Consulting producers: a title for people who bring specific expertise to a project. 

Producer Responsibilities

Producer roles vary widely while using the same title. Some producers work on set with a long list of general responsibilities.  Others might be offsite, with a specific focus such as managing digital effects as part of post-production. Sometimes producer roles even include writing scripts or working on schedules, which are common descriptions for screenwriters and directors. 

Regardless of the details of the job, producers are the organizers of media projects. Even a simple shooting day has a number of details, and you can count on producers to keep track of it all.
