Hello My name is Bill Hoffmann I am trying to add my credits to a feature documentary film "A Sobbing of the Strong-The Passion of Our Father Abraham in Three Acts" (2014) I was the DP for the film and I couldn't choose myself for the film instead it added another Bill Hoffmann and he did not work on the film. How do I add myself and take him off.  The Director can vouch for me that I was the DP for the film. Thank you!

You go to the page for that title, click the edit page button and correct the correct to your name as it appears on your page, including Roman numeral. If you don't have a page, enter Hoffmann, Bill (assuming that's how you were credited), and when you're offered a list of same/similar names, choose "this is a new person, not already listed..."

You should probably ask first rather than make an error you know will need correcting.

By the way, what kept you from choosing yourself? What did that mean?

I chose my name and how it appears on my page, but it didn't show my picture or anyone elses so it ended up being a different person completely.  I have never used this site for credits so I am confused how it works because if I try to look up my page it doesn't show up.  I didn't think I was making an error I thought it was me.

I only see one Bill Hoffmann. When you say you cannot find your page, what does that mean? Do you know you have one but cannot find it or is it possible you don't have one yet? Have you been credited in something by a different name? There's a William with a thanks credit in Dogtown.
If you don't have a page yet, let me know. I'll submit a request to split the page to which you added the credit, to cause a page to be created with your name and credit. Then you can add any others to your own page. If you do have a page, we need to locate it and move the credit from one to the other.  Can you check the pages for titles in which you were credited?  That will allow you to see how you were credited and locate your own Name Page.

I am having the same problem and can't get it fixed. I have tried this instructs about 5 times and had a couple friends try too and no change. My nae is Justin Yoder and I am producer and DP for "Just Because He Breathes." Right now another Justin Yoder is listed as the producer and DP. It says: Justin Yoder was born in 1984 in Indiana, USA. He is an actor and cinematographer, known for Just Because He Breathes (2014) and Miracle in Lane 2 (2000). See full bio »

I was born in Garden City, MO in 1981. 

Any help would be amazing!

So, do you currently have a page of your own?  If so, can you link to it?

If not, you'd go to the page for the title you worked on and "edit page" to move the credit to "Yoder, Justin (II)."  You'll receive a list of same/similar names.  You'll choose the option for "this is a different Justin Yoder, not already listed in the databse." This will result in a new page in your name being created
