How to treat the following credit on Warlords of Atlantis (Why is this marked answered? It hasn't been)

I was watching Warlords of Atlantis and Kevin Connor has a producer credit. However, he is not credited as a producer. I can only assume that it is based on this credit. Is this enough to be credited as a producer. John Dark is credited as a producer. Kevin Connor is the director

Hello adrian,

Thanks for providing the screengrab for the end credits! I have checked the credits for "Warlords of Atlantis" and can confirm that "Kevin Connor" is already credited as Director and also as Producer as the end credits reflect, and is live on the site.

If you anything else, let us know, we are glad to help you!

The problem is Kevin Connor does not have an onscreen producer credit. His onscreen credit is for director. So, does this production credit shown above qualify him as a "producer". There are no producer credits in the end credits. The only producer credit exists in the opening credits and only belongs to John Dark.

Hello adrian,

In this case, the credit is visible as you mentioned is in the opening credits, which shows John Dark and Kevin Connor as producers of the movie, therefore to answer your question, yes the credit shown at the opening for Kevin Connor as a producer is valid, therefore he is credited as such.

@Fran​ This credit does not show John Dark and Connor as producers. It shows that this is a "John Dark-Kevin Connor Production". John Dark has a separate credit that identifies his as a producer. Kevin Connor has a separate credit that identifies him as a directory. Considering Park has a producer credit and Connor does not, I would think this credit is invalid. However, I've noticed on a lot of older features that "XXXX Production" does seem to mean that XXXX gets credited as a producer. I'm trying to determine if that is valid.

Please answer the question asked before marking it answered. Or maybe just allow the person who posed the question to mark it answered because I still have no more clarity on the issue I posted the question about than when I started.

Hello adrian, 

The credit is live and on the site, because it is valid and it shows on the opening screen credits, since he is credited on screen as "A John Dark-Kevin Connor Production" this entitles Kevin Connor to have his Producer credit on the movie, that is why the credit is valid and live on the site. Hopefully this helps!

It seems weird that this is considered a producer credit and I'm wondering if that is true about any one credited with "John Smith Production". This case is especially weird for me because John Dark receives and actual producer credit on screen and Kevin Connor doesn't.

If this is official IMDb policy, then it should be reflected in the producers guide. Currently, I don't see anything that relates to this type of credits for producers.
