• does IMDB starmeter mean anything? 11/13/2017  10:39am

    my friend is obsessed and really kind of annoying about it. they just want from 100,000 to 49,000 something. i'm like, bro, chil, that means nothing. but inside my head im like.... wait.. does it?


    It doesn't mean too much, imo. I've shot from 30,000 all the way down to 700,000. Generally I use IMDb to see how I fit into an agency's roster. If an agency's top client has a super low starmeter that is a red flag for me. I don't want an agency that reps people with all low starmeters and has nobody working at the guest star level or above. I want to see opportunity for growth and mobility. At the same time, if I see I would be at the bottom of their roster (based on my starmeter) and/or that they mostly rep people of a certain starmeter (that I am way below) then I take that into consideration too. It offers a little perspective when approaching agencies and submitting. Other than that I don't see too much purpose in it. Maybe someone else can shed some more light on it. Nobody is knocking you for your starmeter, imo.

    my friend is an agent assistant for a big agency. she said while it's not "important" per se, if they see your starmeter is under 100,000 they tend to spend a few more seconds considering you. whatever the fuck that means
