Production Manager Roles/Responsibilities
During production, Production Managers is responsible for: monitoring and controlling the progress of productions; overseeing production paperwork, such as releases, call sheets, and daily progress reports; and liaising with the First Assistant Director on set, to ensure that the production schedule and departmental budgets are on target. Production Managers make changes to the schedule and to the budget as required, and ensure that these changes are brought to the attention of all relevant personnel. Production Managers deal with any personnel problems or issues that may arise, and ensure that all Health and Safety regulations are adhered to.

This role is very business oriented, and requires a thorough knowledge of film production. Production Managers must be hard working, with superb planning, organisational and administrative skills. They spend a great deal of their time on the telephone, and must therefore have excellent communication and negotiation skills in order to win the confidence and respect of suppliers and production personnel. Production Managers must be familiar with film and they also need to understand the creative and business challenges faced by the Producer, Director and Heads of Department, on each specific film production.
