Re-scoring a movie - How to add it on IMDb

Hi community,

I have been asked to re-score (compose) a movie by the owners of it. The movie was directed by Ozu in the 30s : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0023634/?ref_=nv_sr_1
The score has been done, and played at several festivals this year (notably the Film Festival in Ghent). 
My question is, how could I add this on my IMDb credits since there's already something on IMDb? The only thing that changes is the composer's name....

Thank you for your input,
Best,

I would add the new composer name and the year 2016 to the attribute section.

One example on IMDb: Giorgio Moroder composed new music to the 1927 movie Metropolis. Moroder is listed on the Metropolis page with the film's re-release year (1986).

This is how I did it right after your comment.. However, IMDb deleted the date... Should I do something more?

Thanks for the problem report. It appears our policies and procedures are not as clear as they should be here so we have opened a ticket with the appropriate team.

How is this policy ticket going? Has it been resolved? Should I attempt to submit my credit once more?

Col, sorry to bother you again, but apparently this ticket has been open for a while...  has the IMDb team made a decision about whether or not to remain consistent with their previous policy of crediting silent film composers?

Hi, Col, it's been a while so I thought I'd check up on the status this policy ticket. Any updates?

Unfortunately not.  We are working on the issues covered by https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0 and it's still going to be a while before we can catch-up on things unrelated to this, sorry.  We have pinged the appropriate team to remind them for 2018.

I believe this issue (ticket) is not resolved yet. Another thread about the subject:
