Until it comes to the Producer

You probably won’t recognize the men or women who pick up the award for best picture. The trophy doesn’t go to the winning film’s director or to it’s on-screen stars. Rather, it’s handed to the “producers.”

Producer, the guy who brings apples and bananas to the set for snack time?

Nope. Not quite.

The average moviegoer has some idea of what most of the important jobs on a movie set are. The actor? The dude with the six pack. The Director? The dude with the keg—he makes the big creative decisions. The writer? The hairy guy—he writes the screenplay. The Director of Photography? He…um…takes pictures or something and speaks fluent union. Even if they’re not quite sure, audiences have at least a vague idea.

Until it comes to the Producer.
