Producer in the editorial world. Recently transitioned from post to producing & looking to expand my work. I really enjoy being on set (long term goal is to direct), pitching, crafting ideas, creating shot decks/shot lists, scripting, etc. Not so hot on budgeting & the money aspect.

In the editorial world a lot of roles are mixed. Currently I'm on set, shooting, directing, the whole thing. In the industry, is there a special name for producers that ideate and/or are on set?

Agency producing is all about the scheduling and estimating. We’re creative enablers/problem solvers. We spend a good deal more time building out timelines and budgets, dealing with cost consultants, bidding jobs to vendors, etc. Ideation is creatives purview, shot lists are productions’. There is of course room for creative problem solving and influence, but not in a boots on the ground kind of way.

IMO you’re best served staying in the editorial world if you like what you’re doing currently. OR look for an in-house role that’s similar, but you’ll be working on smaller projects that don’t have the budget for out of house work. The “One-Man-Band” type roles that handle event coverages and sizzles, etc.

Asking because as I'm applying to jobs now, it sounds like a lot of producers at agencies and production houses are in office most of the time (bidding, budgeting, client calls, etc). Not many roles mention set work.

This sounds more like a creative producer/showrunner type role

Look for “content producer” as a keyword. Usually that title means someone who can do the whole shebang.
