Our inspiration started when we were wondering what would be needed to create a new movie and we concluded that a platform such as LinkedIn that is specific to the movie industry would be best for that. We decided that a good place to start would be a site that lets casting directors see an actor's profile and watch video clips from their past acting projects to see if the actor is a good fit for the role they are auditioning for.
What it does
Actors can create their profile with their name, profile picture, and projects they worked on. For every project, you give its name, YouTube video code, genre, and the role the actor played in it. When directors are casting for a new movie, they can browse the profiles available on the platform and watch the videos that are relevant to the new movie by filtering the different projects based on the genre of the movie and the role of the actors.
How we built it

What we learned
It takes time to create a good quality project and it is better to get the details we want in advance, but also be ready to make changes while working. You need to focus on the most important points at first and be ready to build on top of them in the future.
What's next for Sneak Peek
In the Sneak Peek video, you can see how we create a profile for Tom Holland and include his Spiderman videos showing him in different roles in the Spiderman action movies. When casting for a movie you can check out his new profile!
In the future, we are planning to save the profiles in a cloud platform and be able to add many profiles and edit existing profiles. Users will have to log into the platform and will be able to browse other profiles and add new ones. After that, we can add more functionality to the site that will be useful for Marvel and for the movie industry in general.
