IMDBPro: The Industry Tool

Screen Shot 2015-01-09 at 12.36.15 PM

Hello! So, before I get any deeper in this whole blog thing, I wanted to let you all know how I get my information on the people who are behind and in front of the camera for film and television projects. No, I am not fortunate enough to have a photographic memory and simply memorize all the credits and production details, instead I, like my film and television industry compatriots and fans alike, use IMDBPro. Now you may think, “oh, I’ve used that before, that’s no big deal.” And while most people have been on IMDB, which is a free internet database of released films and television shows and some films and television shows that are still in production, IMDBPro is a subscription service that has more in-depth details about productions. For example, you can see productions that are still “in development”, meaning they are not even being shot yet, but are still in the beginning stages. You can also see greater in depth details about production companies and projects that aren’t off the ground yet, or are very hush hush.

IMDBPro is great because it has all of the information you could possibly get, without being on the project yourself.

You can get a free 30 day trial of IMDBPro if you want to find out what all the hullabaloo is about yourself, but after there is a monthly fee. If you have any other questions, let me know!
