Puppeteers (union)are paid CAST, treated as CAST on set (Trailers, hours, pay...) My Taxes are done that as an ACTOR/CAST, We are performing from a script, often giving dialogue, in character but threw a puppet, Still performing. I also perform opposite ACTORS, the leads, star ect... Steve ( with a trophy) So don't try to tell me that we are misc. that's ridiculous and you are not qualified for that kind of opinion. Except if it is your personal opinion, that's where You think we belong.
IMDB we hope can make the change and add Puppeteers to the CAST LIST when we are accredited. That is what we are asking for them to CORRECT. We think it does Not reflect Union Performers, 'Puppeteers' accurately. I hope they are listening to this discussion.

Hi Glenn,

Thank you for your message. IMDb's goal is to accurately reflect the on screen credits of a title. Puppeteers are treated as cast members on IMDb if they are credited in the cast section of the end credits of the title as playing a character, in those cases they should be listed with the (voice) attribute.

If the on screen credit is listed outside of the cast section then you are correct, those credits are treated as other crew.

I hope this helps to explain the policy.

Regards,
Will
