Dear IMDB Staff
We're asking once and for all to remove this credit from the music section and from the movie.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2820008/

We don't know this person "MASSIMO FILIPPINI"  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2141734 and we don't know why he keeps inserting in our movie. The composer of the original score is Giuseppe Capozzolo. The soundtrack of the movie is registered at the The Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and at SIAE Italian Society of Authors and Publishers (which is the Italian copyright collecting agency) We also discovered that this person has changed the opening credits and illegally put online a counterfeit version of the movie. We've already pressed charges against this person. The official version that will be soon distributed (both home video, theatrical and on demand) doesn't have this name in the opening credits, and in the end credits. In no other sites this person is credited for the soundtrack of the movie. He counterfeit the opening, and produced false screenshot, to be credited on imdb. As we said, we reported what happened to autorithy. We kindly ask to correct the cast, and delete this person that has nothing to do with the soundtrack. If necessary we'll attach the officially documents from the ministery of culture, that certify that the only composer is Giuseppe Capozzolo. Below we put some official links of the movie, where this person doesn’t exist. Hoping that this request will accepted be soon, and that this person will be permanently deleted, kindly greetings

Is there a reason why this person is trying to take the composer credits? Was he ever associated with the production at all? It just feels odd that someone would go all this trouble for one credit.

Dear Imdb

I'm the director of this movie. I've just been alerted by the production about this trouble. I've worked personally with the only composer of "the perfect husband", which name is Giuseppe Capozzolo. He composed the whole soundtrack. This other person MASSIMO FILIPPINI doesn't have anything to do with the production. Time ago, I remember he proposed one of his song for a ten second teaser to the production, but I've rejected the music due to his very lack of quality. That song has never been used for the official trailer. I belive that this person is exploiting imdb policy to gain credits and pubblicity, even using illegal strategies, so for me and for the production he doesn't have any reason to be credited for this movie.
Thank you.

I notice no post about a specific submission made.

If you've made a submission to correct, post the submission number here in the thread, along with a screen capture of the credits, and let staff process it.

You could get 1,000 people to post here about it and it won't make a difference and is wasting a lot of your time.  It's a simple matter of whom is credited on screen and if the submission is done correctly.

It's really not helping, and actually hurting, your cause with all of this discussion...especially when originally the guy had nothing to do with the production and is now described as having done work that was not used.  So, if he was credited in the original version, he should be credited.

It's best at this time to post a Reference Number from a submission and a screen shot and see what they can do rather than requesting "umpteen" times and flooding them with the same request.

Hi bluesmanSF, thanks for reply.
The update receipt made by us is #160208-202802-369000.
I got notified that other members of the production has sent the request of change form in the last months, but they didn't get the results expected. I also got notified that the same person who claim credits for music (MASSIMO FILIPPINI) with counterfit screenshot for music, now has changed again his version and his claiming credit for SOUND DESIGN. Below original screenshoot, anyhow on the top you can see the video link.
Thanks for your help.

Dear Imdb,my name is Giorgio Bruno and I am the executive producer of the film and owner of the Explorer Entertainment, (check the logo on the movie).  On 02 12 2014 with reference number 109074 at censorship the film was deposited with the Italian ministry with all credits of the official version of the film, if you want we send you the document censorship from which you can make your checks . I urge Imdb not to consider the requests of Mr. Luca Pavetto. Dea film is unaware of this request, so Mr. Pavetto created a fake profile trying to speak on behalf of the company with whom I am personally in contact. Mr. Massimo Filippini has worked for us in the making of the film (as evidenced by the employment contract in our possession where it is evident his role of sound designer and musician). The movie has passed to the Italian censorship  and report his name next to that of Mr. Capozzolo main author of the Music. Massimo Filippini handled all the sound and music included in the film trailer too, so the words of Mr. Pavetto leave me perplexed and concerned about his mental health, in the very last months he has tried to change some credits of other  people involved in the making of the film  (maybe you can check these requests from his profile ). The accusation that Mr. Pavetto moves against Mr. Massimo Filippini are staggering considering the professionalism that he has always shown, and I think Mr. Massimo Filippini would do well to consider a lawsuit for defamation. I want to invite Mr. Pavetto to make an examination of conscience, not to act like a crook just because other people express different opinions, and I invite him to recognize the work of its staff who enabled him to get important recognition for the film. Regards.

I would hovewer clarify that beyond the fact I'M THE AUTHOR AND COMPOSER OF THE WHOLE MUSIC of the movie - created, playes, edited and recorded by myself in separate files sent to production - I'M NOT the author of THE REST of the MOVIE SOUNDTRACK (FX, Foley, Mix, Mastering, voice editing, etc), as well as I'M NOT the composer of the TRAILER MUSIC associated with The Perfect Husband's Movie.

My two cents:

As a contributor to IMDB, I care absolutely nothing about the conflicts between the director, production company, composers, etc... because the key point has been made clear by bluesman above:
So, if he was credited in the original version, he should be credited
The Perfect Husband has already been screened at several festivals and released in Italy; it could also be purchased for some time on Blu-ray or DVD (limited collector's edition) in Austria or Germany. Therefore, that "an official version will be soon distributed" is irrelevant in this case. Was Massimo Filippini's name displayed in the credits of the original version? If so, the current composer credits listed in the page are correct.
We also discovered that this person has changed the opening credits and illegally put online a counterfeit version of the movie
Whether it is or not a counterfeit version, I must say that the effects achieved in the opening and end credits are excellent for a person who only has credits in sound and music departments. If the name "Massimo Filippini" was fraudulently inserted by himself into the opening sequence, I'd up-vote him for the 2016 Best Amateur Digital Artist Award.

Hi Dea Film -

Just to follow-up on ljdoncel's reply, if Mr. Filippini was credited on the initial release of the title his credit will need to remain listed for the composer role on the site.
