Broadcast Media, Multimedia and Film

My responsibility as a Line Producer is to take charge of all the business aspects of the physical production. We are called Line Producers because we cannot start work until we know what the 'line' is between the 'above-the-line' costs, which relate to writers, producers, directors and cast, and the 'below-the-line' costs which include everything else, crew salaries, equipment rentals, development costs, locations, set design and construction, insurance, etc.

We are usually recruited onto the production team during the later stages of development. Given the script and asked to assess the likely 'below the line' cost of the production which involves breaking down the screenplay into a schedule - a timetable for the film shoot that shows how long it will take to shoot each scene. From this schedule we can accurately estimate the cost of each day's shooting, and produce a provisional budget estimating the total amount of funding required.
