Personal Quote:

The producer is the most important element of a film. It's the producer who hires the director... The producer buys the property, he hires the writer, the director; he's involved in hiring all the actors, involved with production, costs, post-production and involved with marketing. He's on a film for four or five years and gets very little credit for it. See more »
