Merge Title and Remove Title

Hello, 

I am currently attempting to have two projects merged together to form one title and also remove a title that was currently in pre-production, but recently lost its funding and has been shelved. 

First the titles I am hoping to have merged, I followed all of the IMDB questions, but the title has not yet been merged. I even submitted a link to the new merged title and films....

Originally the mini short was split up into two films both spanning around 2 minutes total time. 

A few months back it was re-edited and posted under the new combination title and now just one film....I have attempted to submit the newer release date to no avail. 

I am hoping someone can help me adjust and correct so both films are under the one new single title. 

The second issue, is a web-series that was in pre-production but was recently shelved due to lost funding. The project has been put on the shelf and recently one of the producers released a press statement which can be found here.

We are hoping to have this title removed from IMDB. One of the producers already submitted information regarding this earlier in the month, but has yet to here a response about it. 

If someone could assist me with these two matters, it would be highly appreciated. 

Cheers,

Hi Chris -

Apologies that you did not get a response on this thread sooner.  If you are still experiencing problems with these titles, can you let us know?

Hi Michelle, 

Yes I am still having trouble merging these titles into one film credit. Everyone keeps telling me its impossible, which I just see as ridiculous. 

The only film title that should exist regarding the projects in question is Calm & Flow - 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3880876/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_2 - 

While these two productions should no longer exist on IMDB because they were merged to create the one project above. 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3484056/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_3 & 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3494830/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_4

I also put in a form to have the title changed, which it was. I provided a link for that also, and of course again I am just told that information can not be removed even though the above titles no longer exist and have been merged into the title up top. 

Please help me in fixing this issue. I just need to clear up the issue this has made. 

Thank you.

Title pages are not deleted just because a title is no longer available -- by that logic, every film that is lost or otherwise unavailable would have to be deleted from the site.

The titles were originally released as two separate entities, then later merged into one. If two short films are made and get their own individual pages, those pages will remain even if the film allegedly are not longer available and even if footage from them is combined into a third film. The existence of a new version does not negate/invalidate previous titles that were accepted.

Meaning that IMDB can't help a brother out? It just has to stay. My own foolish mistake? 

I understand all of the logic up top, but like I said IMDB can't do me a solid? It's just at this point creating a lot of confusion outside of the IMDB world. Confusion that I was hoping could be corrected. Can I bribe IMDB to make the correction this one time?

All I'm wanting to do is correct my own mistake with these titles. I had always planned on merging the film into one, I should have just released it all at the same time on IMDB. 

Anyhow with that said, as mentioned in my previous message there is absolutely nothing that OZ the all great and powerful can do to help me correct my mistake on IMDB? 

If it wasn't such a huge confusing mess I wouldn't constantly be asking IMDB to fix this.

I am once again and for possibly the last time emailing IMDB to delete several titles that have been causing me nothing but problems. 
The original intent was a very small art piece told in two parts. The film was then turned into one piece. After several attempts at having the film combined into one title and one listing on IMDB I am contacting to have all titles removed from the database. 

My reasoning is just, as there is no longer any data or proof that the titles exist. No footage, no marketing pieces, nothing. It has been completely removed from any internet database. 

I am no longer looking to hear any excuses that the titles cannot be removed or merged or whatever because simply it has been done before. I can also prove this, as I am sure IMDB can also view this in my recorded comments and messages from a previous title that was completely removed from any archives, databases and such. 

Being that this issue has caused nothing but confusion which I am most to blame for it, I am asking and pleading with IMDB to remove the following titles which are all the same exact film from the database. 

If this is not handled I fear I will have to look to other measures to have this issue taken care of. 

The URL's for the film in question are listed below.

https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt3880876/

https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt3484056/

https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt3494830/

If someone would so kind as to contact me to discuss this matter it would be highly appreciated. 

Thanks,

I now find it a bit difficult to believe that IMDB cannot remove the titles being that you have removed a title for me in the past. I can provide links and correspondence from IMDB with the information. 

All I am asking is that someone help me correct this issue. This way we can all move on and I can stop contacting IMDB.
