The whole breakdown of a project's finances is known as line producing, and it is crucial to any video production. The line producer is immensely helpful, particularly in bigger projects, and plays a vital role at every stage of the process. They not only oversee every line item in a budget, but they also need to be well-versed on the project's overall scope from the beginning.


Typically, the line producer plays a crucial part in the entire production. The budget is finalized, and then the money management begins. The line producer then uses the script to determine what has to be paid for. Additionally, every cost is tracked during the entire production process. By the time production starts, line producers know exactly where every dollar is going. Remaining under budget reduces the possibility of a production going over budget and guarantees there will be sufficient cash to see it through to the end.
