Credits Overview


Whenever possible, include the directors (up to two) and first billed actors (up to four). These are very helpful for both immediate de-duplication and later discovery. Use Latin-1 script to facilitate automated de-duplication and present the given name before the surname.[1] Pay particular attention for source data that include multiple names in one field (such as in a comma or semi-colon separated list), that include character names or positions held in addition to or in place of the names of the people performing those tasks, or that list credits alphabetically rather than in billing order.


[1] Certain Asian languages are inconsistent in the positioning of the surname. If the order cannot be established, use the name as is.
