Mark Stanfield, sreenwriter of Two of Us (2000)

Hello. I'm Mark Stanfield, screenwriter of the film Two of Us (2000). My IMDB page indicates incorrectly that I also worked as a transportation director in 2014; this is untrue. That wasn't me. I've never worked in Transportation.

On a separate note, my IMDB bio refers to me as "first-time screenwriter and Beatlefest attendee". But Two of Us wasn't my first script, so I wasn't a "first-time screewriter". Worse, "Beatlefest attendee" refers to my having purchased a ticket and attended as an audience member something called "Beatlefest" in New Jersey back in 1999. To identify me this way is comparable to calling me a "Disneyworld attendee". (It initially came from Martin Lewis, who was affiliated with an event called Beatlefest; how I ever got dubbed that is a joke.) Can we correct these things? My only authentic IMDB credit is having written Two of Us (2000). Please...? It would mean a lot to me.

Mark: I don't see anything on your page about being a "first-time screenwriter and Beatlefest attendee", so I assume that has already been deleted.

As to your not having been a driver on Robot Overlords, since there is only one credit that needs to be fixed, I suggest going to the page for that film (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2145829/), clicking "Edit page", and submitting a correction to the Transportation Department there.

During the correction process, you will change the name of the person credited as a driver for that film from Stanfield, Mark to Stanfield, Mark (II) instead. Check the box marked "Provide an explanation to assist in processing this submission" and you will be able to provide an explanation, along the following lines:

I am Mark Stanfield, who is already listed in IMDb as writer of Two of Us (2000) (TV). I did not work on this film nor have I ever worked as a driver on a film. Someone named Mark Stanfield was credited as a driver on this film (see https://youtu.be/6BIgQ4hDPiQ?t=5154), but it was not me. I am requesting that this credit be moved to a different roman numeral.

You will then click "Check these updates". On the next screen, you will be provided with a list of names to choose from. Choose the option for "This is a different person not currently listed - create 'Stanfield, Mark (II)'." Then click "Re-check these updates". The rest of the process should be self-explanatory.

Within a few days, if all goes well, your page will be Mark Stanfield (I) and should have only the Two of Us writer credit, while Mark Stanfield (II) will get a page of his own for the Robot Overlords driver credit.

Good luck!

It looks like you changed your biography to be the same as this post. You probably want to go back and edit it to be a real biography.

I went ahead and moved the other Mark Stanfield credit for Robot Overlords to another name page.
