Obie: Please post your last full data submission here on this message board. You can copy it out of the receipt you would have received from IMDb by e-mail immediately after sending it in. Some of the regulars on the board may review it and, if they can, they may provide suggestions as to how to improve the submission to get it included in the database.

I would put it at 10,000, to see if you can get it through, and adjust it later on.

Vincent: It would be better to omit the budget if it is at risk of being doubted, than to include an incorrect budget.

Fair enough.
Moreover, I may be wrong, but I think I remember a similar previous case where it was advised not to include the budget figure, since there were enough critical information to support the submission.

Vincent: Yes, since Obie has a Production Company and an Official Site that he is already including in his submission, he doesn't need to include a Budget to complete his submission.

Obie: I have tried writing a full response twice, but each time Get Satisfaction failed to post it, so I am going to break my response up into multiple answers.

1. It can be difficult to get an as-yet-unreleased short film listed in IMDb, more so than getting an as-yet-unreleased feature film. So you may be fighting an uphill battle until your film gets to a more advanced production status.

2. The Miscellaneous Link should be to an independent website -- not to the same page as the official Facebook page which is also being submitted as the Official Site.

3. There is a Release Date of 14 June 2019, with no attribute, implying a national release, but there is no Distributor listed yet. Normally the producer of a film could not be sure when the film's national release date will occur before a distributor is lined up.

4. I saw on the film's Facebook page that additional actors have already been cast, so please make sure to include them in the Cast when you re-submit this film.

So it happend again 181211-194705-024000 even more infimation added this time


  1. In the "Miscellaneous Link" section of the new title submission form, add links to third party sites detailing the production.
  2. In the "Explanation for missing information" box at the top of the new title contribution form, add additional information detailing your case for your title to be listed on IMDb.

Like I have said I don't have a Miscellaneous Link and have provided an Explanation to this as mentioned by gromit82, Vincent Fournols there is an official Facebook and the production is on our website. I also own my own production company with previous credits on IMDB I’m not sure what else you want?

 

Jeorj Euler  Small details like this can trigger scepticism? What do you mean by this would it come across as a fake title?

Well, overall it is hard for an IMDb title page to be created about an obscure, independent movie that has not yet been shot, let alone completed, let alone released.

If I had to guess, the problem is that you are using the same link for the Miscellaneous Link and the official link. If you cannot find another link that talks about the film, do not include a miscellaneous link and use the "provide explanation".

Hi Obie Dean,

The problem here is that the link to the Facebook page does not confirm that the title has reached the production stage. Once the title has entered this phase please resubmit it with evidence that indicates this (such as behind-the-scenes shots, details of any post-production, location scouting, casting announcements, entries to festivals, any video footage etc.) and we'll be happy to reassess listing the title.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Will
