Credits Mix Up - How do I get my own page?

My name is Anne Peters and I'm a make-up artist. After working on my first short film I was pumped because that meant I'd get my own IMDb page (small personal goal). Unfortunately, there was a mix up in the credits given. There are multiple Anne Peters' on IMDb, 4 to be correct, and the director of our film simply assigned my credit to Anne Peters 4/IV, assuming it was me. Unfortunately, Anne Peters IV wasn't me. She is a professor of law that appeared in a French documentary in 2016. My credits for both the short films I worked on got assigned to her -.-'
I have been trying to change this via the "Edit Page" function via IMDb - no results (been trying for 3 months.)
I have contacted the crew of both films and try to get them to change it- they can't, same problem.
What on earth can I do? It's not the end of the world but it's darn annoying. What can I do to make sure I get my own page and become Anne Peters the fifth. Many thanks!

Anne, not sure how you tried to correct the credit, but you should go to the title page of the film and click ”Edit” from the bottom of the page. Now go to make-up department and choose ”correct”. Now change/correct ”Peters, Anne (IV)” to ”Peters, Anne (V)”. It should say something like ”this is a new name” etc.


And remember to explain why you’re correcting the credit (you can add link to this thread also). It could take some days before it’s prosessed, so be patient.

Thanks! I tried to correct the credit of the professor of law Anne Peters multiple times now, but without success- nothing has been changed yet. I’ll try correcting my own credits!

Anne, it’s best not to submit multiple corrections, since it doesn’t really help if the original correction was declined. It should work if you submit correction via the title page, but perhaps you didn’t add any proof or explain why you’re correcting the credit?

Please post the submission number of your original correction? Go ”Your Account => View contributions => Update History”.

I’m sorry if I sound awfully dumb but- that still doesn’t help me find the page “Update History”

Thank you! It says the last 2 I submitted were declined for “not enough evidence”. How can I provide the needed evidence?

It is not obvious how you could provide more evidence than just saying that the existing page is for a professor of law - it is very unlikely that she also works as a makeup artist!

Based on what has been said in this thread I have submitted a correction so let us see what happens (note that ”Peters, Anne (V)” already exists so the new entry, if approved, will be ”Peters, Anne (VI)”).

One other thought - if you are listed in an online directory of makeup artists (if there is such a thing) a link to your entry if it is publicly visible rather than subscribers only might help.
