What percentage of profits does a movie producer get out of the total gross?

User Avatar
A Film Producer, as you know, funds the film and its production. Whatever way the film production is funded (whether it is the producers own money or what the studio grants him or her) a producer always gets what he or she negotiated during the contract signing. They are paid for being on set as well and this can be anywhere from $30,000-$200,000 for two-three months of filming as they are required to be on set and overlook the project and its filming. Back to profit from Gross... Let's say a producer produces a film on a $30 million dollar budget (as most movies are funded on now a days) and the film is released and it brings in $75 million. A producer/producers will always get what percentage he or she negotiated. Usually beginning and long time producers always negotiate for 1%-10% of the gross profit. Anything over that is just a huge risk and request for trouble as they have to worry about the film being a box office failure (not passing it's budget/ bringing in money from movie goers). So...A movie is funded on a $30 million dollar budget, and it brings in $75 or $80 million...And the producer wants 5% (as most producers do), if it is $75 million total of gross profit--then that producer gained him or herself a payment of $3,750,000 million of that gross. Now if the film grossed $80 million then the producer gets $ 4 million of that gross.... Wait! That's just an estimate of what it will make in the UNITED STATES! If the films worldwide gross profit brings in another $100-$120 million, plus $75 or $80 million from gross profit in the state --- $100 million + $75 million = $175 million (the producer gets 5% of that which equals roughly about $8,750,000) $100+$80 million=$180 (the producer gets 5% of that which equals $9 million). My answer may not be thorough but it's some what of an insight. Now if you go on and become a producer and get a great reputation like David Geffen, Stephen Spielberg, James Cameron, or Francis Ford Copolla--expect your profit to be HUGE! :) If you go on to become a producer, produce a few films and build up your net worth, and then produce your own film that way you can get a higher profit.

How much does movie producer make?

User Avatar
Because a movie's production profit depends on the project and depends on the producer, there is no fixed amount of money that can be quoted in answer to your question. When a producer funds a film, the producer pays all the bills associated with the production, and then earns reimbursement for this investment and potential profits from distribution deals which insert the film into the distribution channel. Funding film production, however, becomes vastly more complicated, since funding is usually sourced from several investors, studios and even back-end deals that featured actors make regarding revenues from the film. As well, there are different kinds of 'producers' including executive producers, line producers, co-producers and so forth. Each has a series of tasks and a series of rewards involved, again depending on the project and the producer.

What kind of characteristics does a movie producer need to have to be successful?

User Avatar
A movie producer is responsible for finding and managing the money involved in making a film. The producer purchases the script and hires all the talent in front of the camera and the crew behind the camera. Entrepreneurial skills, economic skills, team management and most of all skill at storytelling would all be characteristics involved in making a success of a career as a movie producer.

What is a job outlook on a film producer?

User Avatar
Many careers are extremely competitive.. The film industry in particular. That being said you can most certainly make a career out of it, just know that it will take a lot of time and hard work to get to a place you want to be. Movie admissions began decreasing gradually until 2006 when it finally started to go the other direction. They have increased steadily every year and the job market for the film industry is projected to increase at least 11% by 2016. It is a large industry and is always going to be there so if it's something your passionate about and are ready to work vigorously for then take a shot.

How much does a movie producer get paid each year?

User Avatar
A film's producer is responsible for finding, funding and paying expenses for a film. As is true for any entrepreneur, or entrepreneurial enterprise, the goal is to earn more money than is invested in the project. The difference, then is the profit shared with all the contributors to the project, one of which may be the producer. There is no standard.
