Change TV series to film

My company created a streaming service that was originally intended to air on television, but has now decided to release as short films. They information has already been put into IMDB. Can I change the designation from television series to film series?

There isn't really a film series designation. If the shorts can still be considered a series and are being released online, they could probably remain listed as they are because IMDb treats web series as TV series (see guidelines for web series).

Otherwise, they could possiblybe listed as separate short films. If they are already listed as episodes, they can be changed to shorts.

Hi susiefilms -

As Peter_pbn mentioned above, if the episode titles will instead be released as stand-alone films (not part of a series), our staff can help manually adjust the title type.  If this is the case, please post the IMDb link to the series title page and our staff can take a look.

Otherwise, as also mentioned, if the films are being released under a series banner, then they should remain listed as-is, if streaming online you can submit the Keyword "web-series".

Cheers!

Thank you Michelle and Peter. Yes, we would like to have them listed individually, as you mention. Here is the link to the existing page. They are all now standalone short films.

Hi @susiefilms -

Based on the Youtube page it suggests the films may have been originally released under the "InLighten Films" web series banner.

Just to confirm, all 38 episode titles listed on the series page were originally released independently of one another, is that correct?  Or were they originally released as part of the online series and then later became available independently?

Hi @susiefilms -

To clarify further (before any changes are made), the films were first released elsewhere individually, and were then re-released on Youtube as part o the "InLighten Films" web series.

If this is the case, do you have any online sources to help verify the original release details?

Michelle:

They were all released by a company called Inlighten Films. Each one with it owns release date. You can find the original release location here.

Hi susiefilms -

Apologies for the delayed reply.  These titles have now been adjusted to standalone films and the changes should be live on the site shortly.

Cheers!
