Inappropriate Credits - A Fandemic 50 Fans Celebrate 50 Years of Cinema

www.imdb.com/title/tt13892710/

In this video, fans recreate some of their favorite movie scenes from cinema classics. The creators of this video have inappropriately credited dozens of filmmakers, living and deceased, as Writers when absolutely not one of them worked on this project. The more appropriate way to credit their original work is to cite the film in the Connections, References page—so instead of crediting Stanley Kubrick as a writer, the film he directed which is referenced can appear under there.

As of now this video shows up as an official writing credit under creators like Stanley Kubrick, John Carpenter, Harold Ramis, Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Michael Crichton, the Coen Brothers, the Wachowski Sisters, and many more. I have tried to remove the credits but the system keeps rejecting my entry. Will someone with the power to fix this situation please do so?  Thank you.

Hi vgamerdc -

To clarify, were the names credited on-screen on the film title?

No, none of their names appeared in the credits of this YouTube video.

Let's say they are credited, will you keep them then? I mean, can I make a youtube video in 5 minutes and add credits for all the legendary filmmakers to it and upload that to youtube, and then create an imdb page for it.

Now, do I have the right to list hundreds of legendary filmmakers as writers and directors on the imdb title page of my spammy youtube video that I made in 5 minutes?

@Michelle​ Hi, it’s been 2 months and I never heard back from you. No, they were not credited on screen. And even if they were, in that case anyone could upload anything to YouTube and then IMDb crediting anyone, whether the credited individual worked on it or not.
