line producer is a type of film producer who is the key manager during daily operations of a feature film, advertisement film, television film, or an episode of a TV program. A line producer usually works on one film at a time. The Line Producer/Producer works with a UPM. Theywork together with the same goals, but the UPM will focus more on the details and the line producer is geared more towards creative decisions. A Line Producer is a key member of the production team for a motion picture. Typically, a Line Producer manages the budget of a motion picture. Alternatively, or in addition, they may manage the day-to-day physical aspects of the film production, serving a role similar to the unit production manager. On each project, the line producer will see a production office staffed with a coordinator and production assistants to aid in the day-to-day operations. On each shoot, there is also an accounting department whose head will keep me abreast of the health of the budget.
