Coda on IMDb

Apparently, Withoutabox, the online film festival submission site that I use, had the opportunity to offer IMDb title pages to emerging films and filmmakers who have used Withoutabox to submit their work to film festivals. Pre-selected and pre-approved (sounds like a credit card offer… not that I've ever been pre-approved for one of those… but I digress).

Part of me felt (and still feels) that it's a little pretentious to have your under-3-minute short film listed on IMDb, especially when that's all you've got to your credit (I refer to credits on IMDb here, not other films that I've done). But I also didn't want to turn down an opportunity. And I figure that maybe it can work as a bit of a push to be able to add another credit as soon as possible. Plus I wanted to be able to provide credits for the people that worked on the film, since they are all film people and not just friends of mine. (I mean, yes, they're friends of mine, too, but they all have their own film interests outside of just helping me.)

I was going to wait until everything and everyone had been added to the page, but I am beginning to realize that might take a while. So check out "Coda in G Minor" on IMDb: And feel free to vote if you’ve seen the film!
