I have made recently a short film and a guy from the crew is continuously adding his name in music department, producer, director. Which he is not part of from below profile.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9868161/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cr3

I tried removing his name 2 times and again he is adding it. I am the producer of content and original project uploaded through my account over youtube and vimeo. Please advise how to prevent such addition of credits.

Project IMDB Profile full credit
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9305156/fullcredits/?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm

Youtube Trailer Link:

Actual credits can be confirmed from original short film:

Kindly advise how to stop it.

Thanks

Puzzling:
Andrew Rozario is explicitly credited as being co-director and writer at https://youtu.be/vzNH-uL7Ea4?t=18, so you cannot blame it to appear as director in IMDb (and if you worked supposedly close with him, you just refer to him as "a guy from the crew"?)

Hi MV Film,

Thanks for your post.

As mentioned by Vincent, you appear to have provided evidence to confirm this Andrew Rozario is involved in your title as a co-director, meaning the credit listing looks to be factual. 

Can you provide any further information about this to provide some clarity on the issue. 

Thanks,

Joel

Dear Vincent and Joel,

The credit exists only for Co-director. Not for producer, Sound Designer and Music Producer as mentioned in my 1st post. So kindly advise.

Best regards

At the moment, the title page seems clean according to your wish (even though "MV Film" does not show...)
From my experience: IMDb is open to anyone to update and enrich any information, at the risk of mistaken or fraudulent entries.
I leave it to IMDb staff to state whether there is a way to block certain identified fraudulent updates

Thanks for reporting, I've removed his producer credit from the title but as previously explained on this thread his credit for co-director and writer shall remain based on the above evidence.

Regards,
Will

IMDB this is a real issue - we have a similar experience that needs to be addressed.
