EXECUTIVE Producing. There's a difference. Can't Post

I think some of you are confusing Executive Producer with the Producer of a film.

I can't provide a direct link (too darn tired here) but you can Google it. I just typed

Executive Producer of Films

in the Google search engine.

The entry "What Is An Executive Producer?" is particularily interesting. I want you all to see what we fans, in our (so far) quasi-enthusism, are giving up here.

How for the next few years, as we read casting decisions, on set reports from the 2 back to back films, read media junkets from around the world, and TV interviews with whomever directs, we will NOT imagine Peter, Fran and Philippa not readfng media reports from some lonely set somewhere and not imagining how the films are getting on without them there ...how it all could have been....

New Zealand, WETA Workshop and Digital, Howard Shore, Alan Lee's massive art department, all the props and costumes that he sued NL to keep.........maybe even some of the actors...and Peter, Fran and Philippa NOT THERE, hardly involved at all except from an office somewhere...or worse yet, with the production in their own town.

I wonder if New Line will have the guts to suggest to Peter that, (to save money) he give this new director the Bag End set from his own backyard?

How will the DVDs be? Peter is an obsessive diarist. Can you think of any other DVD set with extras as good? Will any other director be as obsessed, or will the prospect of filling Peter's shoes be too much? Will love of the book shine throgh, to the point where he beefs up scenes like Bornir's death, that go even further? COuld other dorectors have done anything sublime like invent Arwen;s vision of a child....and Shore's score to match?

Will the cast and crew have that "This is an experience that we will remember the rest of our lives, that we will be telling the grandkids about" glow as they work every day, WITHOUT Our Three there? That special glow that can only make this the billion dollar success that the studios want it to be?

Once this does down, I hope the sobering facts start trickling in....
