The Independent Filmmaker is often the Producer also. Generally the Independent Filmmaker must do the job of two producers.
The “Executive Producer” is the dealmaker, the financier. In an independent film the Investor is often the Executive Producer. On the set or on location the Executive Producer is watching the shooting schedule, the budget and the money.
The Line Producer is in charge of logistics for the shoot. The Line Producer will hire the crew, order supplies, and equipment and make sure the director has everything she/he needs to make the Project progress smoothly. During production, a Line Producer will work on one film at a time.
