A producer’s role is hard to define as it continually changes and is different for each production. The producer has many different responsibilities that can range from creative decisions on the look and feel of a cartoon all the way to making sure the bills get paid. In most cases, the producer has the most responsibility for a show being created from start to finish.
I grew up on a steady diet of comic books and monster movies. Now, I get to think about superheroes and giant robots at my job all day long! At some jobs, that’s called “daydreaming” and it can get you fired. But I’m a lucky guy because they actually pay me for that! So keep reading those comics, but read your textbooks too – writing for animation not only takes a wild imagination, but discipline and craftsmanship if you want to do it well.
