My short is listed as a Video Short (V) on imdb. Anyone know how I can change this to eliminate the video designation? Thanks for any help

Robert: For clarity, is the film you referring to Maybe Next Time at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10352192/? The reason I want to clarify that first is that there is another 2019 film titled Maybe Next Time at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9150098/ by Guy Mannerings, which is clearly a different production.

Thus, if we are talking about Rob Rotondo's Maybe Next Time, it will need to become Maybe Next TIme (2019/II) on IMDb once it is converted from a video to a film, and I would want to incorporate that into any step-by-step instructions I would provide.

Yes it would be my (Rob Rotondo's) Maybe Next Time. I waa referred to an old discussion on this topic and followed those instructions. I entered an edit to change the title to Maybe Next Time (2019). It asked me if I wanted to merge with the other title or form a new title. I marked merge thinking it was referencing my Maybe Next Time (V) title. After your question, I'm wondering if that edit request may merged my title with Guy Mannering's.

Thanks for your interest, gromit82.
I just received confirmation from imdb of my request.
It says:
Title Correction - Add
Correction: Maybe Next Time (2019)

Robert: I suggest doing another Title Correction quickly, in hopes that IMDb will catch your previous correction in time and not merge your film with Guy Mannerings' film.

Go to https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10352192/ and click "Edit page".

On the next screen, scroll down to the Title Correction line, select "Add correction", and click "Continue".

On the next screen, there will be a blank line on which to enter the corrected title. Enter it as:
Maybe Next Time (2019/II)

In the Explanation box, enter something like, "I am the director of this title. It is going to be theatrically released, not go straight to home video. However, it is a different film from the existing Maybe Next Time (2019) directed by Guy Mannerings." Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, you will get a warning that says, "There is a mismatch between the title type of the old and new titles. Are you certain that you wanted to change the type of the title as well as its spelling?  ..." Check the box marked "Warning understood, go ahead anyway." Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, your data should appear with a green background, and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

Good luck!

Hi Robert, 

I have cancelled the merge request and modified the title type to a film. This change should be live on the site shortly. 

Thanks
Meredith
