I feel adequately stupid asking this question, but what is the difference between a producer and a director. I think a director is the one who sits with the screens and tells the camera men/women to pan over, zoom in and cut. Producers are in charge of publicizing and finances. I have a good feeling I'm either wrong or missing a lot. I'm aiming toward a film focus, mostly behind the scenes like story-boarding and design, but would that put me closer to producers or directors? Not that it makes a difference to my focus choice, I'm just curious.
