I'm a second unit director but you list my credits under the wrong category (assistant director). How do I change that?
Credits listed in the IMDb are ordered and categorized in separate lists.
While we try to follow on-screen credits for our listings whenever possible, these categories are based on internal technical criteria and are not meant to
faithfully reflect the way credits are grouped in film titles or production
listings. Some of our categories are very narrow and only include credits that
belong to a single specific profession (cinematographers, producers, editors, set
decorators etc.). Others are more generic and may include a larger number of
credits per film (art department, sound department, visual effects). All
credits that don't belong to a specific list are grouped into a generic
miscellaneous crew section.
This categorization is not meant to imply anything about the relative
importance of a credit, or to give a higher profile to one job at the
expense of another: it's solely dictated by our internal data management
That's why assistant directors and second unit directors are grouped
together (even though they perform different functions) and why there's a
separate list for production managers and one for sound department crew
members but not one for the catering department or for location managers.
Our long term plan is to create more specific lists and move credits across
them; however, since this is dictated by our internal data management
priorities, we can't predict exactly how or when this will take place.
