I know the obvious routes you mentioned, but it's still like writing to Santa Claus most of the time. I just wanted to know if there's a place I could find a producer looking for work, rather than the writer cold calling people.
Ultimate control is unlikely unless you're funding the film yourself. You have to understand that money = power, so those who have money and/or those who can secure the money for your movie will have the final say. Do your part to earn the title of producer (by landing talent or directorial attachments, getting interest from possible investors, etc) and then try to pair up with producer who's open to working as a true team, and then you'll likely be allowed to have significant input. But don't expect to have the final say. Also remember, the director will have a lot of creative input and control as well, and you have to let them do their thing otherwise they won't want to be a part of the project.

p.s. Any producer who's sitting around on a "seeking work" list isn't a producer you want to work with.

If you're in Los Angeles, you might check out Film Independent.
