What is a Slated Member Score?

How is my score calculated?

Slated profiles are divided into two main types - projects and people. Each project has an overall Project Score, and each person has a Member Score.

A Member Score is an analysis of a member’s credited work history and is used to estimate project team strength. Scores are out of 100, adjusted for inflation, depreciate over time, and factor in the following criteria: box office, profitability, series success, festival and awards, role rank, and company rank.

The score from a member’s highest scoring role will be the one displayed.

  • For example, if you have a 50 director score and a 20 writer score, the 50 would be displayed.

Members that have both film and TV credits will display the higher of these two scores.

  • For example, if you have a 50 score in producing TV, and a 20 in producing films, the 50 score would be displayed.

Festival and award nominations and wins are automatically factored into Member Scores.

Companies you work for or have worked for in the past also contribute to your score, so be sure to list them in the Work History on your profile.

  • For example, if you are an executive at a well-known sales company, your score in Sales & Distribution will be substantial.

  • If you worked at a post house for 3 years, your score for Post Production will be lifted.

Member scores show the relative strength of a member's filmmaking talents and experience as they might be measured by their business peers.

They serve as another filtering layer that can accelerate discovery, improve matchmaking, aid in packaging, and facilitate more relevant introductions across Slated.

Here is a rough legend for understanding Member Scores as they relate to experience:

  • 0-10 - May have experience in shorts, music videos, or working for companies.

  • 10-20 - Some experience working on produced features and shows.

  • 20-40 - Experienced professional. Likely played a key role in a few completed features.

  • 40-60 - Veteran or star on the rise. This person works regularly.

  • 60+ - Top 1% of their field. Many well known actors exist in this range.

While helpful, the Member Score is not everything. If you're assembling a team for your project, the important thing is to make sure at least a few of your key team members (director, writer, lead producer, lead actor, sales agent) have successfully made and delivered films before. The bigger your budget, the more of your key team members should have 60+ scores.

Slated regularly supports first-time directors and up and coming filmmakers from all walks of life. In fact, many of the films produced by our EP Team were helmed by first-time directors with an incredible script.

If you'd like to be considered, submit your project for analysis.
