  The Film Producer by FilmMakers Magazine
These producers find themselves filling a number of roles with in the project, but try to focus their efforts evenly between the business and the creative aspects of the film in progress.
If, on the other hand, the producer is always on the set and is making himself known to the crew, they are more apt to treat the producer as one of their own, even opening up and expressing concerns to the producer which otherwise may go unspoken.
The producer is also extremely helpful to the director in providing an objective point of view on the film as the process moves along.

 FilmMakers Magazine: The Film Producer
Because producers are essentially supervisors at whatever level they produce, there is no union or guild that governs the jurisdiction of producing like what is seen in other professions such as writing, directing or acting.
For those that actively produce, this can mean any number of activities including but not limited to: hiring the writer to write the original screenplay, selling the script to a studio, signing the major actors, doing the budget, hiring the crew, and making sure the set gets made on time.
Associate Producer on the other hand often refers to a person who physically produced the project, making sure everything happens according to schedule and handling all production difficulties and problems that may come about once the money is allotted.

This is a film which contains nothing in theme, language, nudity and sex, violence, etc. which would, in the view of the Rating Board, be offensive to parents whose younger children view the film.
The PG rating, suggesting parental guidance, is thus an alert for examination of a film by parents before deciding on its viewing by their children.

 Executive producer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Executive producer is a role in the entertainment industry that is rather ambiguous and often difficult to define clearly.
Usually, while there may be many credited "producers" and "executive producers" (with varying responsibilities) on a television series, there are just one or two in the position of show runner.
In video games, executive producers tend to be a president (or other corporate executive) of the company that is publishing the game, and they handle business matters (e.g., Nintendo's president, Satoru Iwata, is usually an executive producer).
