Find That Actor

Find an actor from a movie or TV show using only the character name, role, or their relationship with another character.


Describe your business

It's an AI enhanced tool which helps users find an actor from a movie or TV show using just the character name, role, or their relationship with another character.

Why are you selling the business?

I only started this project to learn about the OpenAI API. It took me 48 hours to complete and it's been live for 8 days.

The extremely postive feedback I've received makes me think this project could go far with more time spent on it. I don't have enough of an interest to take it further though.

What is included in the sale?

  • 2x domain names (findthat.actor and findthe.actor). Both registered until March 2024
  • Source code for the project
  • An export of to-date logs from Mixpanel and web analytics from Pirsch

What is the technological stack?

  • Next.js
  • OpenAI GPT 3.5-turbo
  • Mixpanel (for logging)
  • Vercel (for hosting)

What actions are required to keep the business working?

  • Register an OpenAI API key
  • Not much else. OpenAI costs less than $1 per month with the current volume and everything else is on the free plan for that service

How does your business make money?

  • It doesn't yet, but a likely model would be some ads and traffic volume (by working on SEO)

What marketing initiatives have been used for this business?

  • Twitter only. This has led to ~400 unique users in one week and lots of positive feedback
  • The next logical step would be a Product Hunt launch after some improvements have been made

How can the future owner improve this business?

Here's just a few ideas:

  • Show multiple actors if more than one person played the same character
  • Improve accuracy (and the underlying prompts) further
  • Use a database to store the results to make repeat queries faster
  • Allow people to mark a result as incorrect
  • Train the AI model to be more accurate based on people reporting mistakes
  • Train the AI model to learn about movies newer than Sept. 2021
  • SEO content
    • Blog posts
    • Character combination landing pages ('who played X in Y?')
  • Switch to GPT-4 for improved accuracy
  • Use images as input (coming in GPT-4, not sure if it's possible)
