Incorrect technical specs?


I wonder how one gets IMDB to change incorrect techical specs for a film like this? It says it was shot on 35mm film, when actually it was shot with multiple cameras using a special 24 frame video process called Imagevision by Compact Video, edited on videotape and then transferred to 35mm so theatre prints could be made.

It's in the credits, and It's pretty well documented. Searching the web for Imagevision and Monty Python provides many hits too.

IMDB is a wiki. You can contribute corrections by hitting the "update" button on the page, which are then incorporated after a few days.

I expect this is a default 'setting' for movies. You are absolutely correct, although I believe there was a 35mm camera also involved?
Submit an update?

I did submit an update, shortly after posting that, haven't checked yet to see if it's been updated.
... just checked, hmm, didn't get updated. I'm sure I sent in an update, with the references.

IMDB was wiki before wiki, but I don't think it is so much anymore. I've thought of starting a technical movie database. Maybe it's still a good idea.

It can take weeks for them to process their updates. There is a page somewhere where you can see haw far they are in integrating the updates.

A technical movie database would be awesome. The only thing that I know of, doing almost the same thing is dvdbeaver.com, but you cant see a films original aspect ratio unless it's reviewed there.

Go for it man!
