I mean I get it, and it's a great idea, but I don't think I can name a single producer of anything
@Not him again, you produced that comment and i produced this reply. ;) you can do it champ
@ Mr Cuymenq, now that's what I don't get about "producers". I wrote that comment and posted it. Tf do these people actually do? I'm not trying to be an ass, I honestly don't know.
I mean they didn't cast, they didn't direct, they didn't act. Wtf do they actually do?
@Not him again, i think they produced the beat and the final cut of the song. I could be wrong but idk
@ Mr Cuymenq, alright I'll give you that bc it makes sense, but tell me what tf they do for movies then, especially when there are like five of them
@Not him again, large portions of Lady Gaga's debut and undisputably best album "The Fame" was produced by RedOne. I know that from looking into why the songs have so much soul and why the synth sounds so good.
@Captain Swordsman, but what do they actually do still remains my question. You have a singer, a songwriter, and a director. I'm not trying to be a djckhole, I honestly want to know
@Not him again, The producer will have varying levels of interaction with the song depending on genre. What you've described as the "director" is afaik the producer. I'm the case of Pop and rap, the producer will be the one who creates the actual beats and instrumental loops, ie. creating the "background music" for the rapper or singer
@Captain Swordsman, so is it the same for movies?
@Not him again, that’s why it says find out :) most of the time, the producer will be credited if you look the song up. easy sources to use are Wikipedia and Genius
@Not him again, as for movies, i’m pretty sure the producer is in charge of securing any necessary rights to the movie, financial layout, hiring the screenwriters and creative teams, supervising the set every day whilst filming scenes, and many will also help with post-production work (editing, visual effects, etc.) after the movie is shot.
@Tyler643, ok, that makes a lot of sense
@Not him again, if you really want to see how much a producer can affect the sound of a band, check out Dave Matthews Band and the The Lillywhite Sessions. Also compare the album Everyday with Crash.
@Not him again, if you watch anime, you should watch shirobako lol its a cute anime about how anime is made, and the main character is a producer. A lot of people say that the anime is pretty close to actual anime studios.
@Not him again, Taylor Swift's new album actually has a couple good songs on it. All of those songs are produced by Jack Antonoff. He has his own band called Bleachers and they are fantastic.
Trevor Horn is the only reason Bon Jovi was good. Change my mind.
try better artists
