I have noticed that the actor Ben Unwin has unfortunately died. IMDB have credited him with some of my old work as a director of music videos. This has led to some media outlets listing things that this Ben Unwin has done within news articles and possibly future obituaries. This is not a major problem for me but out of respect for the dead I wonder if it can be altered to prevent further upset to any of his bereaved family or friends?

Benedict,

From what you've described, a Name Split should be submitted, which means moving the Directing credits to either a new name page or a page with your other credits.

IMDb Help Center Page:
How can I move credits to another page?
(Read the instructions under the subtitle: Approach B: How to split a name.)


Also, is the item in the Other Works section belong to you as well?
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0881385/otherworks?ref_=nmbio_ql_2
If yes, then that information should also be moved to the new name page and submit a deletion removing the data.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you need assistance with the submissions.

Yes that is me. People are writing obituaries for the other Ben Unwin using my credits. Some people think I have died and I can only imagine what it is like for his family having the wrong things written about the death of a loved one.

Thanks for the confirmation.

An update has been submitted to move the directing credits to the correct name page.

Contribution #190822-144640-367000

Hopefully, the submission will be approved sooner than the average 2-3 processing days.

Also, I would suggest adding more information to the name page that you feel comfortable posting, which may include brief statements in either Trivia and/or Biography sections.

Thanks again for responding.
