So a producer, doesn't actually produce, but a director directs AND produces? Confusing indeed.

Depends on the field...

Radio?
Television?
Movies?

I've heard it generally decribed as "...the person who takes care of stuff that no one else can!"

I've generally understood that the producer is responsible for logistical decisions while the director is responsible for creative decisions. I don't know if that accurately describes it, though. I can see potential for some overlap there.

That's a concise way of putting it, I think.

Yes, you're quite right.

The producer appears to be the bridge between the upper executives and the creative team.

This pretty accurate, the producer does a little of everything, solicits funds for the budget, helps out in casting choices, sometimes adds their two cents making a good film bad or vice versa...rarely though ;D

So what does it mean?
