Having an IMDb page is a great way to get your name out there and build an online brand. It is also the first place casting directors and reps look for information about you, including your headshots, biography, acting credits, special skills and contact details.
IMDb (Internet Movie Database) is an online resource that collects, analyzes, and shares information about films, TV shows, home videos and video games. It features cast and crew lists, personal biographies, plot summaries, trivia, ratings and fan and critical reviews. It has sites in English and versions in various other languages, including Danish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish and Portuguese.
Create Your Own IMDb Profile
If you are a film or television actor, you can create your own imdb page by subscribing to IMDB Pro. This will give you access to industry-related areas of the site as well as features reserved for registered members, like writing reviews and creating personalized watchlists.
To create a new IMDb account, log into the website and click “Create a Profile.” Fill out the registration form with your full name, email address and password. Then submit the form. You will be asked to confirm your registration before you can continue.
The next step is to select the title type you want to register for. This will determine which section of IMDb the page will appear on, and whether you will be allowed to add or remove production and credit information. Once you complete the registration process, a confirmation email will be sent to you.
Once you have logged in, click the link marked “Add New Project.” Choose the correct title type and enter the information about the project. This includes the name of the production, the director, and the actors who were credited on the movie or show. Then provide proof of production, such as a screen capture of the actors’ names in the credits.
IMDb Pro users can create a resume page, where they can list their production and credit details, along with a biographical piece about themselves. They can also upload a headshot and up to 100 photos. They can also share their resume with others, which will help them get more visibility on IMDb.
If you are a filmmaker, you can add your own movie to IMDb by creating a new title and submitting it. This will create a new page on the website, and you can then edit it with the correct production information. You can even include a trailer or promotional material to promote the movie on IMDb.
IMDB is an excellent resource for staying on top of industry news, as it aggregates articles from several sources. It also provides links to related news sources, such as the Hollywood Reporter.
You can also follow the latest trends in your field, and find out about upcoming projects you may be interested in. IMDb’s Top News, Movie News and TV News pages are especially helpful for this purpose.
