Credited twice for the same thing

I have recently updated the Soundtrack items for “A Son of Man” (2018) (tt5328694)

Contribution # 190530-032119-652000

I added links to 9 items and deleted 5 duplicates.

In looking for the person numbers e.g. nm5278701, I noted that the five people below each have only a solitary credit on IMDB and that is in the music department of “A Son of Man”.

  • Stalyn Aguirre
  • Anna Friedberg
  • Jefferson Gómez (I)
  • Carey R. Meltz
  • Vermair

Some others have credits in the music department of “A Son of Man” as well as credits in other films.

If my updates are approved, each person will have two credits – for doing the same thing in this movie.

To me, this is strange – two credits for the same role.

So, my question is this, should this duplication be

  • ignored?
  • resolved by removing the relevant links from the Soundtrack items?
  • resolved by removing the relevant credits from Music Department?

I am guessing that the duplicate credits should be ignored ... because if the person has an on-screen credit in  the music department and an on-screen credit for the same song n the soundtrack listing, then both should remain, given IMDB's passion for recording things as they appear on-screen..

Hi Graham -

I can see that the updates you submitted have all been approved:

Music Department:

If the individuals are credited in both the Music Department section on-screen and in the Soundtrack section on-screen, we will would want to retain all the listed credits.

Thanks, Michelle.

I assumed that this would be the case, but thought it was worth raising for clarifcation.
