do you need to upgrade to pro in order to have a filmography page? or do you just submit your info to imdb and once they post your movie credits do you automatically get filmography?

You don't need to upgrade - anyone can edit entries and add projects, if those submissions include credited appearances by the actor then they'll be added to a filmography and if one doesn't exist it'll be created.

Or to answer your questions:

* No.

* Yes

How can I make it a filmography page? I post my credits from movie I was in, and comes up with a different chuck case and not me. I search for me and cannot find, says no such user exists?

Right, this is the only Chuck Case listed in IMDB:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3295888/

I assume this isn't you.

What projects are you credited on?

If I was to guess, are your only credits currently on IMDB uncredited roles? If so your entry might appear and then disappear as they won't display uncredited roles, you need a credit first. See the guidelines:

If not can you link to the projects?

That is a user account. It cannot be turned into an IMDb page, listing credits. For example, my user name is bluesman. But, if I star in Die Hard 12, and I am credited on screen as "bartender...Joe Smith," a page in the database will be created, headed by the name "Joe Smith" where all of my credits will begin to get listed. You user account is for rating films, making lists, writing reviews, posting on message boards, etc, and can be upgraded to IMDb Pro, which will let you upload a resume, head shot, etc.

To add your credits, you'd go to the page for the titlenof the film/show and click "edit page" and add the info. You should add proof, like a screen capture of your name in the credits. If you've yet to be credited on screen, you are not yet eligible for a listing.

OK two things:

* That is your user account, everyone gets one when they register at IMDB and is a different beast to someone's entry. George Clooney has an entry in the IMDB, but I don't think he has an account, some people have both, but the two are unrelated,

* Those sound like uncredited roles (i.e. your name wasn't in the credits), so what I said above counts - if you added your credits and saw your entry appear but then disappear, this is because they are uncredited roles and they won't display until you get a credit - see the guidelines:

Hello. IMDb Pro has nothing at all to do with being listed, or not. It allows you to access some industry info not available to regular users, post on industry related message boards, add head shot and resume to your IMDb page, etc. It does not give you any right to be listed on IMDb if you don't qualify.

Inclusion for one person rarely has anything to do with the next person. If you don't qualify, you don't qualify. Further, if none of you were listed in on screen credits (as has been mentioned several times in the thread), but they've been listed, it could be several things. They might've been listed by the producer as credited, so they're included, while you were not. If, when it's out, there is evidence they are not included in on screen credits, and these are they're only credits so far, the credits will likely disappear.

Were you/will you be, credited on screen for the film? If not, and you don't have any on screen credits listed, you will not be eligible to have the roles listed on IMDb. IMDb is primarily concerned with documenting on screen data. If the producer did not submit your name and you want to submit it yourself, you'd have to somehow prove the on screen credit. So, you might have to wait for release and supply a screen capture of your name on screen, on the verification form http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/data_ver... after editing the page for that title by clicking the yellow "edit page" button and filling in the online form.

re: "has a real page, not IMDb Pro..."

Again, a page is a page. There is no connection to having/not having a user account, regardless of Pro or not Pro (John Wayne doesn't have a regular user account, nor IMDb Pro account...yet he's listed because his name has appeared in on screen credits in film, etc.). User accounts are just for using features of the site. A person's page is an actual piece of the database of film information, like a name can be listed, a film can have a page, a show can have a page, a game can have one...
