I think you get two weeks free, right? you can just try it out. Used to be.

I am a long time member, but I need it as a producer to track actors mostly. I also keep an eye on the starmeters of my actors who are in my corner already so I can keep a sense of their popularity.

I should probaby cancel it, but I never do. I use it just enough to keep the subscription going. But I do find it overpriced. half the amount would be worth it.

I was actually recently quoted in a magazine talking about the service ironically - about the whole age issue which is an interesting phenomenon. Actors are not happy about it, but producers need it for the advanced searches to find actors in range. Interestingly though, there is no ethnicity category which while for a crew person doesn't matter is actually a BAD thing for actors because it's really hard to browse for someone of a particular ethnicity when a role calls for it. If it were easier, the actors who had worked less would have a better chance of being found. Funny when trying to be politically correct can backfire.
