Film credits often have producers, creative producers, executive producers, and similar titles that can confuse a layperson. Here is a quick primer:
- The Executive Producer is the one who invested all the money in the project.
- The Producer is more in line with the director's vision, and is there to solve real-world problems during production.
- The Line Producer runs the operation of the film production, working with payroll, insurance and vendors.
- The Creative Producer works directly with the director and hatches ideas, creative elements and creative collaborators that make or break the movie.
