What is an Executive Producer in a Film?

0

An executive producer (EP) for film is very different from an executive producer for TV. For film, an EP is a very abstract credit. It can mean a number of things. To put it simply, an executive producer is some one who provides an important contribution to the project. This could be financing, or it could mean that you manage one the A-list talent that was part of the film. It could even indicate that you were a high level employee working at the production company. In any film production, there are many people who are heavily involved in the producing of the movie, however, there can only be so many people with producer credit (the Academy has a 5 producer limit for the best picture category). So to provide these people with the appropriate credit, they will receive an executive producer title. But at the end of the day, if you want to be recognized for your merits as a producer on a film, the credit you want is “produced by”.
