This post is NOT about privacy but rather, what should you or should not share for potential collaborators and whether it will impact your ability to get work. It probably is the same issue for anyone behind the camera including all of us post production types - not just composers. But it happened to me yesterday. So I am looking for 'opinions'.
I was in a film industry zoom networking meeting last week where the featured presenter was a producer - arguably well known but may not be 'a-list'. I sent him a Facebook request and a message with a link to my IMDB entry and my music at Soundcloud.
He responded last night after accepting my FR -
"Cool - Gr8 to meet u, sorry I didn’t respond sooner. Looks like a lot of good work. One suggestion for ur IMDB profile - personally I would remove ur age - let people guess. Stay safe! God bless."
Keep also in mind for that to be 'effective', I should also remove all my pictures and age related data from ALL my social media accounts as I have friends and followers in the film industry via my social media accounts as well.
So you think putting in age can negatively impact my ability to get work? Assuming I don't have an issue with privacy, should I also pull out anything relating to age from all my social media accounts including pictures?
