What is the Internet Movie Database? Located at us.imdb.com, this is the very best resource on the Internet to find information on thousands of movies from the 1890s to the 2010s. Every movie lists its known cast and crew, and then, by clicking on a person's name, you can then go to that person's résumé where you can then move to even more titles.
Should I be listed in it? I personally have been in many production offices where a producer did not bother to call someone and request a résumé, but instead just looked him or her up online. Whether it's fair or not, the IMDB is, in essence, your online résumé. If it's complete and correct, it can lead to more work for you. If it's incomplete or wrong, you could be losing jobs that you had no idea were even considering you at all (and you wondered why the phone never rang).
Can I add myself to the IMDB? Yes, but I'll warn you that it's cumbersome for most people and quite difficult for others. The IMDB has very strict rules for submissions, and a tiny mistake can mess up your page for weeks or even months while you try to fix it. The process is always time-consuming too since there is at least a 2-week turn-around for most entries and you have to keep on top of the new updates.
So, I guess you can do it for me, right? Absolutely. I've been using the IMDB since 1994, so I've learned the ins and outs for making the process go as smoothly as possible. In addition to keeping my own page current, I've done the same for many other films, actors, and crew over the years.
Customers of Go For Websites get this as a free service! For everyone else, I charge a flat fee of $100 (which can be applied later towards a new Go For Websites account). This includes me working on fixing your IMDB page for all time it takes to get it updated. Make your payment below, then send me your résumé, and then I'll get the process started immediately.
