Watching movies is an extremely popular past time and an integral part of the United States culture. The movie industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and professionals are required to express ideas and create images and produce the motion pictures. This is the job of movie producers. Movie producers typically start out as actors and complete formal dramatic training through universities or acting conservatories. Employment of movie producers is projected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 11% from 2006 to 2016. The increasing production and distribution of major studio and independent movies will drive job growth. The increasing demand for movies in other countries will also contribute to job growth.
