The producer is considered to be one of the key decision makers in the feature film world. The producer's responsibilities are often divided into two roles: the "creative producer" and the "line producer." The creative producer's responsibilities include: securing the script; raising the financing; hiring the director; and finding the cast.  The line producer's responsibilities include: producing the film within the budget; staying on schedule; and insuring that the film is delivered within the specified time period. Understanding the producer agreement is an essential knowledge set for producers, directors, writers and anyone interested in the film business. This workshop will outline and discuss the basic terms of the producer agreement along with important issues to consider when negotiating the deal.
