Hi are you this Kenny?


And the reason for these credits to be removed please.
Thanks
Cheers.

Also this is IMDb Policy on credit removal.

IMDb aims to be the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on movies, TV and celebrities. We are committed to accuracy and it is our longstanding policy not to alter or remove correct factual information from our records. If you notice an error or omission in our data, please submit a correction or deletion via the "Edit page" button located at the bottom of every name and title page and our staff will be happy to review it and make all applicable changes.

However, IMDb will not remove accurate information. If you try to delete an item of data which is accurate, your delete will not be processed. Please be aware that attempts to delete accurate data will count against your overall accuracy rating and may result in all your submissions taking longer to process along with additional proof requirements.

Yes. I have potential clients that are may overlook me because of these particular credits. I need to have them removed please. I've also submitted the deleted credits I am talking about. Just need to have the remaining 250 of 268 removed.

Kenny, you should be aware that this is a public forum. If you have to ”shout” and talk about legal action over factual camera related film/tv credits (quite frankly I have no idea why these previous credits would cause a money lost), at least use the IMDb help desk (which is a private way to contact IMDb):

https://help.imdb.com/contact


As Col pointed out, with IMDbPro you can ”build” your personal resume/CV, but normal IMDb is not a resume service. One simply cannot choose what credits are displayed on the IMDb name page.


But yes, IMDbPro is a paid service. But it’s widely used among the industry. I believe there’s a free ”trial” with IMDbPro.

Was suggested.
It would be best if you continued the conversation outside of this forum.

Also it seems that you are not aware of producers using IMDb as a quick search to vet potential crew members. They don’t specifically look at IMDbPro or the resume service IMDb offers. They simply go to imdb and type in your name. So yes, this is an issue and is not as simple as “using IMDb’s resume service”. I’m going to guess you’re not an actual working crew member in the industry.....

Kenny if you can prove that you were not involved with those projects, then provide the appropriate proof of such. IE: Screen grabs of each credit in question.
Thanks.

You do realize that most tv shows do not show a majority of credits “on screen” right? There are many times our jobs are not recognized in the credits, therefore, I cannot show “screen grabs” as there is no screen to grab.....

Ed Jones, you seem super knowledgeable about the inner workings of the industry. Clearly you’ve worked on a tv and/or film...

Lets ask this then.
Can you be found on any of the credits you want removed?

Ed, unless you’re an actual crew member in the film industry, or an actual rep from IMDb, please stop talking to me. You literally have no idea what you’re talking about.

And Kenny, a secondary question if you would be so kind and answer.
Were you the one that submitted those  250+ credits in the first place?
IMDb can look it up if necessary. But it would save time if you could let them know if it was you.
Thanks.

What is that supposed to mean?
Is your reply because I see the same thing that another might see when looking at you body of work? I see it. Plain as day.

It means you’re a regular guy. You don’t know what it means to actually work in the industry. Not all 250 credits were submitted by me. Sometimes productions are the ones who submit the names of crew members.

Kenny, Good morning.
You have been so good replying to all questions asked but one.
This one I asked earlier.
Must have slipped your mind.
Please answer, it would help.

Can you be found on any of the credits you want removed?
I can do a random look see on the billing credits of all those titles to see if I can find your name on them. If not indeed billed as a cameraman, I can start the process of submitting corrections so that the credits remain but have the attribute (Uncredited).

Also a minor question. It seems you were in two places at the same time filming.
Atlanta and New York City. Is this a mistake? Are the dates incorrect?

Thanks
Ed

Uncredited will not cut it. You are really missing the point here. Producers use the general IMDB service to do quick looks at potential hires. If they see certain titles or projects that are attached to you, they will sometimes frown upon them and in turn not hire someone. Again we should really have a phone call about this to discuss the matter further. It's not as simple as you think. Let me know the best way to get a hold of you.

Kenny: The only person who works for IMDb who has commented in this thread so far is Col Needham, the CEO of IMDb.

Ed Jones, Eboy, Valance, and I are not IMDb employees, and we don't have any significant influence over your IMDb filmography.

In this case, it is a bit hard for me to understand why you are seeking to have most of your credits removed from your filmography. I don't see any offensive or controversial titles listed -- most of your work appears to be in mainstream American television. And sometimes people change occupations and request IMDb (always unsuccessfully) to have credits from their old occupation removed, but I don't see any noticeable occupational change indicated in your career.

If you need to describe your problem to IMDb confidentially, you can do so by going to https://help.imdb.com/contact, and then selecting first "IMDb Fan/Contributor questions", then "Filmography credits", then "Delete/Correct credits", then click "E-mail", and fill out the e-mail form on the following screen. I don't think they will be willing to remove your credits, but that will give you your opportunity to provide your explanation.

I hope this helps.

Kenny,
You have said that some of your credits do not "Show up"
Those credits would need to be listed as "Uncredited."
Also you neglected to reply on another question posed.
You seemed to be in two places at one time filming.
New York and Atlanta.
Is this a mistake?

Valance.

Please give correct advice.
The largest percentage of changes are submitted by us "Users." They are then approved by IMDb paid employees. Not as you alluded.
Thanks
