Please note that manual processing by our staff is the slowest and most inefficient way to update information on the site and should be used only as a last resort, as it will take us several months to process credits that are submitted in this fashion. In order to expedite the process, please read carefully the following guidelines and try to stick to them as closely as possible.
See here for a detailed explanation of why we can't accept printed resume to update credits.
As an alternative, you can upload your resume and make it accessible online via IMDb Resume Services. The credits/information in your resume will not be integrated in your IMDb filmography page but it will be accessible from there.
If you have a picture that you want to have displayed on your biographical information page, do not send it unsolicited. See our Resume Services section for all details on how to submit a headshot.
Lastname, Firstname - Title of Film (year) - OccupationFor example:
Smith, John - My Film (1997) - director
Doe, John - Another Film (1998) - key grip
For acting credits, please supply the name of the character you played if possible, like:
Perkins, Anthony - Psycho (1960) - Norman Bates
If the credits are for guest appearances in TV series, please clearly mark them as such and try to indicate the episode title/number or date when it was originally broadcast.
The closer you stick to this format, the better (and the quicker we'll be able to process them and put them online).
We can only add credits to titles that are already present in the IMDb. If you want to add a credit for a new title, you need to add the title first.
The details of the format of titles and the eligibility rules are explained in our new titles guide. Please read this guide carefully and pay special attention to the eligibility criteria. Additionally, note that we require a minimum amount of information on a new title in order to verify its eligibility and existence. IMDb retains the right to reject any work whose eligibility according to the rules is dubious or/and not verifiable. This may include works which are in their very first development stages. They may be rejected at that stage but accepted later on when they are actually finished and released.
