Hi, some of the productions I was the composer for were credited with the wrong person. How can I have that changed? I added myself as composer, but the other person is still there as well.

Usually, you can correct an error of what you've described by submitting an update and write the correct name over the incorrect name on the form.

If you submitted the new name and was approved and published, submit another update deleting the incorrect name. You'll need to provide a short statement on why the credit is being deleted. (The correct name is already listed. This name was submitted in error.)

I hope this helps.

So, today I got some approvals but also a lot of declines fro my credit deletion/changing requests. How can I prove that I am the actual composer not a person by the same name?

Please post the 18-digit reference numbers of the declined submissions and wait for an official IMDb representative to respond.

This is the reference number, where I asked to merge the two pages that both point to me. What evidence can I show to prove it’s both the same person?

Hi Sebastian -

I just reviewed your name page and can see that the separate listings have now been combined to a single page under "Sebastian Watzinger": https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1988390/

Cheers!
