I am a non-union actor and have done several film projects for which I am told I will be receiving IMDb credit. What is my next step to access the credit information given me? Will I need to be a member and submit a registration? How do I facilitate this process? Thanks.
When a credit is added to a film, it will then carry over to the page for that actor or crew member (or create a page if it's his/her first time credited). To see it you'd simply type in your name in the search box and got to your page. No membership is needed. A user account is free and will allow you to do other things, like post on message board, create preferred settings, make lists for following films you want to see or have seen, etc. A paid IMDb Pro account will allow you to access industry info, upload head shot, add a resume, etc. Pro has a free trial so you can try it and see if it'll be useful to you.
You might want to have a regular user account in case you need to submit or correct data on your page. But it's not needed to view any pages.
