Dunkirk is filming in Swanage next week and there is quite an impressive crew list. Once again IMDb is listing a major location film which doesn't have a Location Manager...well it does actually but IMDb do not consider it important to list the Location Department, unless of course they stick them in Miscelaneous Crew.

Thanks for the feedback but we recently launched a location management section.

You can follow along with some of the communications we have had with the location managers guild @ http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000042/flat/258322506

It is possible that some credits are awaiting a move to the new section but this is now a major new crew section on IMDb. 

For example my friend Jamie's page @ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0501867/

So why no Location Manager mention on a major new film, Dunkirk, when even the least significant member of crew gets one?

This is because whoever is the location manager (and no member of their team either) has hit the "Edit page" button on that title and provided the information to IMDb yet.  We can only display information which people send to us, sorry.
