Mary Aloe and the Aloe Entertainment Team on Producers, Producers – So Many Producers

It takes a village…to make a movie.

You may wonder why there are so many names and types of producers in the credits of a movie. Mary Aloe and the Aloe Entertainment team have had their names on various movies as Executive Producer, Producer, Production Company, and others. You may wonder, “what’s the difference?” “Why are there so many producers on a movie and what do they do?”

There are many facets to making a major motion picture; many balls to juggle, you might say. The script development and financing phase, the pre-production phase, the filming or production phase, the post-production phase, and the distribution and marketing phase. In general, the Producer(s), like Mary Aloe, generally oversee all aspects of the production, as mentioned above. An Executive Producer(s) deal with the financing and budgeting of the picture. The Line Producer manages the day-to-day operations of the production – hiring/firing, keeping the filming on time and on budget. A production company, like Aloe Entertainment, may be involved in all or some of the aspects of the making of the movie, such as the budgeting, scheduling, scripting, the talent, any physical resources for the production, the organization of staff, distribution, and marketing. Then there are various co and associate producers that could be writers or other creatives with clout or ones who assisted the other producers in a significant way, but not necessarily active on a day-to-day basis.
Sometimes too many producers can spoil the production, but most times it is just the evolution of putting together a movie – the years spent in getting a project to the theaters – that causes the movie credits to fill up. Mary Aloe and the Aloe Entertainment team are very proud of the movies they are involved in producing, such as BATTLE IN SEATTLE, MARY, TIGER, TIMOTHY HILL RANCH, and others. Working with the artists and creatives of all kinds, whether in financing, filming, editing and other aspects of post-production, or distribution and marketing, is hard work, sometimes lasting many years. But when you are passionate about a story you want to tell, the ups and downs and the frustrations and delights merge into a product of which to be proud.
It’s like a baby….it takes a village.
