Line Producers are 'on the line' meaning they are responsible for each line of the budget. They are involved with all aspects of the production and are directly in contact with the Director, Producers, DP and the rest of the crew. As a Line Producer I have previously slashed payroll/benefits administration costs 15-20% by negotiating pricing and fees, while ensuring the continuation and enhancements of services.
What do I do?
• Read scripts, breakdown the script, create Breakdown Sheets.
• Create Character Lists for casting purposes. Hire a Casting Director, schedule auditions, advise on options.
• Organize meetings with cast & crew.
• Hire main crew: DP, PD, Art Director, Location Manager(s), UPM, AD, Script Supervisor, Sound Mixer, Costume Designer, Make Up Artist, G+E, & production crew.
• Bind the right Production Insurance coverage, E&O insurance & Workers Comp.
