Help.  I am the cinematographer and editor for this particular film.  Someone else had created the imdb acct but no longer keeps it up.  I need to make changes and upload a video trailer.  I do have an account of my own.  Can I access the information and change it even though I did not create it?  I can't receive any feedback from that user or get them to change anything.  Thanks.

You certainly may submit update requests to that title; click on the Edit Page button near the bottom of the Title page to begin.

Anyone with a validated account can submit updates to any Name page or Title page. No-one (except IMDb) has control of any page.

There is an exception for Company Details and Contact information; these may only be updated thru a Pro account, but any Pro account may submit the requests for any Company or Contacts.

A couple of other points:

IMDb records credits; the credit as shown on screen at the first release of the film is what IMDb will record, even if it does not match the actual work done or the position specified in a contract.

IMDb relies to an extent on trust; however, if you do not have a history of submitting accurate (by IMDb regulations) updates, you will probably need to include some evidence to support the update.

Thanks so much David. Just one more item.  I tried to upload video through the WithoutaBox section.  It asked for several posts,but I wasn't sure what to add.  It stated that it uploaded.  Will it eventually arrive at the IMDB account that I posted it to?

Sorry, I have very little knowledge of the workings of WaB or video uploading. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will answer.
