Apex trigger to create a task and set Assigned To, to the MVP Owner

I have created an Apex Trigger to create a Task on the MVP Object but keep getting an error.

I am trying to link the Assigned To (Lookup(user,calender))  on the Task object to the MVP Owner (Lookup(user)). 

Can anyone help correct this error?

Do you have access for this field on MVP__c  , and OwnerId fields on the Objects ?? 

I belive this is the issue with permissions

Hi Sean
Please Change,
line no. 10 -: t.subject = 'You need to call '+ mvp.FirstName+ ' today';
line no. 11-: t.OwnerId = mvp.OwnerId;

Hello Nishant,

There is now an error on Line no.11 - Variable does not exist: OwnerId

Change Line 10,11,12 with below code
 
t.subject = 'You need to call '+ mvp.FirstName+ ' today';
t.OwnerId =mpv.OwnerId ;
t.WhatId =mvp.Id ;

Line no.11 - Variable does not exist: OwnerId

The Owner I of the taks is a Lookup(User, Calander) field and the MVP Owner field is a Lookup(User).

Not sure where its going wrong or how to fix this.

Hi sean
Please try to replace Line No. 11 with:
t.ownerId = trigger.newMap.get(mvp.Id).OwnerId;
