Creative Producer

z - Contractors/Freelancers United States


Position at Opus

The Creative Producer is a Producer specializing in the support and implementation of creative deliverables that may be attached to a stand-alone project or incorporated into a larger program. This is a “role-based” title, and the Producer will need to demonstrate all the skills and training falling under the “Producer” title.   

The Creative Producer manages the entire creative process – from budgeting, staffing, hours allocation, vendor management, work back schedules, client deliverables and meetings, internal meeting cadence, and review and approval process of all elements. The Creative Producer works closely with the Creative Director and creative team to achieve the stated project goals. The Creative Producer may report to the overall Executive Producer in the case where the deliverables fall under a larger program strategy or may own the project outright if it is a stand-alone opportunity. If the deliverables are part of a larger program, the Creative Producer will report any budget changes, weekly status updates, and escalate any issues to the Executive Producer. The Creative Producer will sit in the Make Team and be client facing.

The Creative Producer understands the roles and unique responsibilities of all creative resources – Creative Directors, Copywriters, Art Directors, Graphic Designers, 3D Animators, 2D Designers, Editors, Motion Graphic Designers, Audio and Voiceover Editors, etc. The Creative Producer understands the process and workflow for all creative projects—including RFP deck creation, print and digital assets, media, and video elements, and how to take a design concept from first review to final deliverable. The Creative Producer will work closely with all assigned creative resources to make sure the creative team has all specs, style guides, and other creative parameters needed to successfully complete the creative request. Often, the Creative Producer will also understand any creative parameters set forth by the client (via client-provided style guide or other means) and will act as a set of eyes for internal reviews of all designs. The Creative Producer will understand the revision and approval process to guide the client and the team to the final product.
