How can I get MT and end credit music credit for music which I composed on a show when another composer is doing the underscore? Can we be co-listed as composers? Is there a separate category for Main Title/ End Credit music and underscore? Please advise. Thank you!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Dear IMDB staff, please advise? Composed MT/End Credits & themes for show that is....

My composing partner and myself composed the underscore & MT theme for 26 episodes (Season 1) of the Transformers:Rescue Bots Series.(as well as creating the underscore themes for the characters).  The production left the country for the 2nd/3rd seasons & is now using a different composer in Australia. The show still uses our Main Title & End Credit theme music for every episode, and edits some of our music in for underscore, in addition to what the new composer is writing for the show. Are we able to get IMDB credit for the season 2&3 shows in which they are using our MT/End Credit theme even tho we are now not scoring the whole show? How would we go about listing this on IMDB, since the new composer has listed himself as the sole composer for the show for season 2&3?

May I ask were you actually credited in the show's credits (any episode)?
If not, than the only way you could be added to the Cast/Crew is by having an (uncredited) attribute.

Yes, i was credited as composer for the 1st 26 episodes. after that - the production went out of the country w/ a different foreign composer. They are still using my MT & End Title theme as well as some underscore from music I did in season 1, but the new composer is getting full credit for the show.  I just want to find out how I can get credit for the Main Title/End Credits on the episodes that I am no longer writing the underscore for. Do you know if it would it be a shared credit with the new underscore composer? And if so, how to enter that for imdb?  thanks!
