Hi IMDB Team,

There was a change of editor on a project I did & I must have submitted this change for processing through both deletion & replacing 3 or 4 times now & have waited months for the change to come through - The problem is that the Editor credit is listed as 'Jason Wheeler' - WRONG - this needs to be changed to 'David Hughes'

Can someone please fix this for me?

Hello Dan
Did you include any proof or a reference to this? Or did you just expect them to take your word for it? 
Submissions from March & April would have been processed by now and if the title is still showing Wheeler as the editor then your submission has been rejected & ignored.

I don't know why the IMDb data editors wouldn't assume that Dan Tonkin knows more about this project than they do, unless he is using different IMDb user accounts to submit the various information.

Hi, Dan Tonkin. Why did you or an agent of yours list Jason Wheeler as editor of the then-incomplete Twisted in the first place? A participant of a movie project doesn't necessarily absolutely know who the movie editor will be before filming wraps.

They uploaded the incorrect credits from an earlier version before the official one was finished. This person was never involved in the edit by the time it was finished either but the list hadn't been changed when someone uploaded it. Personally, I never add credits to IMDB at all until ALL is done and dusted! This is exactly an example of what can happen! Am I looking at having to do a new IMDB page for this project or is there a way this can be resolved?

Hi Dan,

Pleasenote that we must list our filmography based on a titles end credits from the original release of the title. Therefore if the title was originally edited by Jason Wheeler and released - either a theatrical release, online release, festival release or public screening - then this credit will remain live.

Our data editors have researched this title and have been unable to confirm David Hughes' involvement as the editor on the title, however there are multiple sites listing Jason Wheeler as the editor. If you have any evidence that the first version released to the public lists David Hughes as the editor, you can either provide this evidence here, or if the evidence contains sensitive information you can provide this using the contact us page - https://help.imdb.com/contact

Thanks
Meredith

Meredith, wait. Are we referring to the same title? Twisted has not even been released yet. There must be some kind of mixup.

Hi Meredith. Jeorj just got the nail on the head. Thats the problem. As for Jason Wheeler, this is his only IMDB listing https://m.imdb.com/name/nm9249925/?re...
Whilst the above David Hughes has many. The listing was quite sloppy and originally had many people missing from it. I've added some of them on myself since then but I'm not going anymore until I can get this as one of the most important one's done.
Can you please investigate once more? I'd deeply appreciate it.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for your response.

As the title is unreleased, I've submitted the request on your behalf now - this should update within 24 hours.

Please note, the title year listed is currently 2017 which suggests the title was released last year - I would recommend when possible to submit a release date (if known) to the title page, doing so will automatically update the year associated with the name. 

Instructions on how to add a release date can be found here;

Have a great day.
