Question by Joe: Who gets paid more and who has an easier job, a film director or a film producer?
Im thinking of going to film school but not sure for what director or producer.
Answer by Morgan R
Ok. Number 1. The producer is the guy or woman who pays for the film. He’s one of several producers who put up financing for the film. An executive producer is a guy or woman who puts up most of the money, or a good portion of the money.
So a producer doesn’t get paid, he/she is the one doing the paying. The director depending on how good he is can get paid up into the millions. But if he’s just starting out, can get next to nothing for just doing commercials or independent films.
What do you think? Answer below!
