Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that AuditionUpdate.com is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, it's mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

  • 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
