Much of the professional media consumed (in such mediums as television, radio, and film) are the end result of many people collaborating to create a polished final product. The person who guides the production process is called a production specialist. Production specialists coordinate the production teams to ensure work is efficient and meets the standards of the creators and distributors of the content. The specific tasks performed in this role vary depending on the medium and employer, but general tasks of a production specialist may include coordinating studio scheduling, as well as overseeing script writing, set design, and audiovisual engineering. They also manage the post-production process to ensure an exceptional final product. Production specialists may be supervised by senior production specialists or act in that role themselves.
