The Role of a Producer in Video Production
There are several steps involved in video production and a lot of different faces come and go throughout the process. With this said, there is one individual who will follow the process from start to finish and is responsible for the management of a video production project - the producer! Here at Title Productions, we have a handful of dedicated producers on our team with the expertise and experience to put your business's message in the spotlight. Read on as we explain what a producer actually does and why they are so important in video production…
As we mentioned above, the producer plays an integral role in the video production process from start to finish and it simply wouldn’t be possible to complete a project without their input. The role of a producer may change and adapt as a project moves through the motions so we’ve decided to give a brief overview of the general responsibilities for each part of the process:
● During pre-production, a producer will help stategise and coordinate a creative vision that brings the clients’ business, product or service to life. This ensures that a video is more successful. The producer will likely work the closest with the client in order to get an understanding of the key messages that they would like to focus on. Essentially, this is the planning phase where the producer coordinates with their team and the client in order to put a plan into place for production.
● A lot of pressure is put on the producer during the production phase as they’re responsible for management and organisation. A producer will organise the crew, talent and equipment according to a schedule so that the plan that was made during pre-production can be put into practice. At this point, they’ll work with the director and other professionals to ensure that everything is captured as intended and smooth over any issues that arise on the day.
● Finally, the producer needs to work closely with the editing team in post-production to ensure that those key messages from the client are translated into the final product. With a focus on scheduling and management, the producer is also responsible for budgeting, critiquing and meeting deadlines during post-production to ensure that editors understand their brief.
There are many qualities that a video producer needs to possess in order to be successful in such a competitive industry. For example, they’ll need to have an eye for detail, the patience to follow a project from start-to-finish, a creative knack for storytelling and very strong communication skills. These are all qualities that we know our producers here at Title Productions have possessed from the get-go.
It’s safe to say that the video production process wouldn’t be able to run as smoothly without the presence of a dedicated producer who knows the entire project inside and out. After all, it is their job to pay fierce attention to the nitty gritty details and communicate with the rest of the team to ensure that the project meets deadlines without sacrificing quality at any point.
