  1. PRODUCING PROJECTS - Otherwise known in the freelance world as Line Producing a project: Hiring the crew, managing the money, security necessary talent, locations and any other necessary details to make sure the filming is done safely, creatively, on budget and on time.  (This last role will be something you grow into with time and experience)
