What is my Bacon number?? (very obscure "actor")

OMG I have a Bacon number! I think. What is it - how do I find it? Difficulty: I am very obscure and not actually in the movie industry.

Back in about 1999-2000, I volunteered to act in a movie for a friend-of-a-friend. There were cameras, and makeup, and everything, and apparently the end result sucked and everyone forgot about it (including me). BUT, I guess the director held on to all the footage and re-edited and released a cut of the film in 2004! And put clips on Youtube, and listed whatever info is required on IMDB - the whole 9 yards.
My question is - given that I am now listed on IMDB, is there any formulaic way I can obtain my "Bacon number," or my degrees-of-separation from any other actor? I already tried googling "bacon number [name]," and nothing came up; either they don't use IMDB, or they use some subset of data.
Are there any other alternatives? Just from clicking the bios of a few other people in this movie, I am certain that they connect to other films so it is not a complete dead end.
