INTRODUCING: Contribution for Department Head
We have published a new contribution guideline around Department Head.
A department head is a person who leads, supervises, or heads a specific department (or sub department) within a production. They are also sometimes responsible for hiring others into their department. For example, the cinematographer or director of photography is the head of the camera and lighting department. Similarly, the sound mixer is the head of the sound department. Some departments have sub departments within them and each sub department may or may not have a department head.
Department heads are very rarely listed in a titles end credit sequence - therefore, similarly to Showrunners and Head writers, listing Department heads is a rare exclusions to our policy of: “Listing all information on IMDb based on a titles end credit sequence."
