"We could make Gone with the Wind1 and HBO wouldn't buy it." —Lloyd Kaufman

ASSOCIATE PRODUCER: The producer’s lackey or “bitch.” The producer usually delegates a certain financial, creative or administrative responsibility to these individuals. In your case, this may be your mom, drunk rich uncle or the guy that collects the shopping carts outside of the Stop and Shop. This title (or the title of Line Producer) can be given to DGA production managers or the crack addict bum messing up my garbage at this very minute.

Synonyms: Creative Colleague, Step and Fetch It Dude.
