Declined Credit Update

Hi Michelle,

I was just wondering if this sort of thing is the only way to reverse a declined submission.

I recently added an uncredited role I was in for a feature film and in which I (and others) saw me clearly, but I do not have a copy of the footage and don't appear in any of the trailers that I have seen.

What is the process I need to go through to reverse the decision - do I have to wait until I can buy the DVD and do a screen grab to prove I was in it?

My contribution ID is 190522-011325-255000  - thanks.

Hi Michael,

If the title is unreleased - other verification may include proof of employment (pay stubs or receipts, call sheets, contracts) showing that you worked on the production. Please see this guide for more information.

Regards,
Will

Thanks Will, but as I said in my initial comment, I have seen myself in the released film. The call sheets used a code name for the film so they don't match, unless you know what the code name was. I could dig out my chits, but they also use the codename. 

I will check the guide again.

However, my main point is to ask HOW I contest a declined submission as there's no obvious link or process defined where I can get it fixed. 

Would I just have to re-submit?

Providing uncredited/unreleased Evidence

If you are not listed in the end credits or the title is unreleased - other verification may include proof of employment (pay stubs or receipts, call sheets, contracts) showing that the person worked on the production, or mentions of the person's role on the production in media articles from reputable third party sources etc. In these instances the credit may be eligible for addition. If the title has been released, we will include the attribute of (uncredited) to reflect your name was not mentioned in the end credit sequence - for more information on this attribute, please see here.


Here are the steps:




  1. Upload these screen-grabs or data somewhere on the Web where we can access it and make a note of the links/URLs pointing to it. Please note that the information must be publicly accessible on the web, so do not upload anything you are not comfortable sharing.

  2. Find your original submission in your update history at Update History.

  3. Verify that all the data is still valid. If you need to update/amend the information, you can do so and resubmit the entry.

  4. Make a note of the update reference number (it's the number composed of three groups of 6 digits separated by dashes, i.e. 160227-090001-134000).

  5. Go to the Contact Form and select 'IMDb Fan/Contributor Questions -> Filmography Credits --> Provide Credit Evidence' .

  6. Select "E-mail" and fill in the form with all the information requested. At least one link is mandatory. If you have more than three, use the 'comment' field to add them.

  7. Enter any additional information, comment or feedback in the 'comment' field. The more data/evidence you supply, the better.

  8. Submit the form.




Our editors will review the evidence you provide and confirm if it is sufficient for the information to be added.
