How to post your short on imdb.com ?
There’s a lot of confusion and nonsense about how to get a project listed on IMDB. Personally I found so different ways to put your short on imdb, but none of it seemed to me right way. And I think it is important, at least for me. It’s the first place people look to find out more about you as a filmmaker/actor/writer, and can be a great marketing tool.
I thought that IMDB Pro will do the thing, but when I looked closer, it looks like a perfect tool for actors, where you fill up your profile and apply for some casting calls. Didn't even find out if it is a good platform for Directors or Cinematographers or other film members.
I found that if you apply to a film festival through Withoutabox, than your film will be listed to imdb. Don't know if that's the way I want it.
Also you could add you film through imdb as a contributor, but you have also to prove that your work is eligible, which can be hard if you are in post-production write now.
So, do you guys have some experience with this? How do you recommend to do it?
