Hi,

I shot a short film back in 2012. However, we are now re-shooting it as a TV pilot with the same name. I want to to delete the page for the short film I shot back in 2012 as we are re-shooting it with a different cast and crew. I have tried contacting the helpdesk but have had no luck. Please can someone answer my question on how to delete this film page, as it won't let me submit the title of the pilot which is the same as the short film and I want people to search for the pilot not the short film. I own all the rights to both. Please help.

If it qualifies for listing in IMDb and got listed, it shouldn't be deleted. The new one should just be added on its own.

Films with the same title get submitted all the time. This should not be a problem. When you enter the title and click "check these updates" you'll get a message there are similar titles. This is to avoid you and me from independently adding the same film, causing it to be listed twice. Check the box at the end for "This is not an existing title. It will result in a new page for the new title being created. Since one is a short and one is a pilot, they will appear differently. You should add to "connections" area that the second is a re-make.

Could you delete your first post so someone doesn't waste time answering the same question? There's a delete/edit button at the top right of the post (active only until someone replies to it)...thanks.
