Industry representative who works with writers (as well as with other "talent" such as directors, actors, and actresses) to develop their careers, both creatively (through consulting on story development, time-management, and prioritizing) and financially (through marketing the client's products). They perform many of the same services as do agents, but are not allowed to secure employment for their clients. Managers are, however, allowed to produce films (Chuck Bender, for example, produces films starring his client Sharon Stone), whereas agents are not. Managers often work in tandem with agents.
Like a director of a corporation, a manger is a person elected by the members to manage the LLC. However, an LLC need not elect managers; instead, the members may choose to manage the LLC directly.
