Film Producer
FILM PRODUCERS fill a variety of roles depending upon the type of producer. Either employed by a production company or independent , producers plan and coordinate various aspects of film production, such as selecting script, coordinating writing, directing and editing, and arranging financing.

Then, unless the film is supposed to be based on an original script, the producer has to find an appropriate screenwriter . For various reasons, producers cannot always supervise all of the production. In this case, the main producer may appoint executive producers , line producers , or unit production managers who represent the main producer's interests. The producer has the last word on whether sounds or music have to be changed, including deciding if scenes have to be cut. They are in charge of selling the film or arranging distribution rights as well
