Add more social sharing
Have you thought about making IMDb like more of a social media site? I'm sure you have. But we could make it a little more like LinkedIn. Make it feel more open to the public. A near encouragement to build momentum for more people to get people involved in film. Amateur film makers become discovered through IMDb. Dreams become realities. And yes, there is already a setting where you can contact their agents. Make the setting more advertised. This could even be a more mature version of YouTube. Have the Amateur IMDB awards/film festival to generate money and publicity. It could be a huge step up for IMDB.
