Shouldn't "Actor" be used to describe a single actor (dude or chick or undefined or non-human) rather than "Cast"?

Isn't the CAST all of the actors in a particular production?

NOTE: Developers - FILM Page Credit Roles

Can multiple roles for one person/entry be implemented? It looks terrible to have the same person listed multiple times, each entry with a different role.

Multiple roles for a credit is a good suggestion. I agree, it's a pain when you've got to enter the same name over and over and it doesn't look great. We'll look into implementing that.

With Actor vs. Cast, having both these options accomodates contributors adding data as it's printed on a release, as well as being helpful for contributors whose first language isn't English, or coming from a region where one term if favored/more familiar than the other.

actor for male actors
actress for female actors

On a role related note, can the duplicate roles for "Director", "Director Of Photogrophy" and "Edited By" be removed, there is no need for two of each.

Then I assume that changing the roles is redundant, and shouldn't be done?

What about non-binary people like Asia Kate Dillon?

Also, considering that 1) "actor" is a gender neutral word, and 2) "actress" is considered offensive by some people, I'd suggest just using Actor, and getting rid of Actress.

+1

Just use what ever gender they think they are for gender nuteral people.

Or just what ever gender they were born.

For a few transexual credits i used actress, cause they were men who changed into females etc etc.

yes please remove the dupe ones and add new ones like "Stunts" "Voice Actress" "Costume Designer" "Make-up Artist"

The gender binary is a concept that there are only two gender options, male or female. Non-binary people fall outside of this concept. So, they don't think they are either gender, and often prefer gender neutral pronouns.

Also, considering that it's not always obvious which gender people are, it would be a lot easier to just have one role, one that is gender neutral.

Easier in the sense that we wouldn't have to figure out someone's gender to assign a credit role, and at the same time we avoid accidentally insulting someone by assigning them the wrong gender.

Thats what i was saying just simply add actor or actress for credits otherwise there will be 100000000000000's of made up genders as they make one each day.

i want a dinosaur as a gender as i now think i'm a f' Dinosaur.

We don't need to add gender fluid as a role it's not wikipedia.

Considering the above, from the opening post, it's probably just an attempt at humor, or an attempt to derail the discussion.

I don't know what you guys are smoking, but no one suggested adding any additional genders anywhere.

The suggestion was just to get rid of Actress, Actor is enough as it is a gender neutral word, and fits everyone. Capisce?

i want a dinosaur as a gender as i now think i'm a f' Dinosaur.

That is insensitive language to extinctgenders.

Considering the above, from the opening post, it's probably just an attempt at humor, or an attempt to derail the discussion.

WRONG! I was seriously asking about using "Actor" only for a man, woman, individuals that do not identify as either, OR animals of any gender (ex. Flipper, Benji or Lassie; Note: all the various Lassies were actually males in a female role)

"Actor", I feel, is the best choice for all possibilities.

I was answering to TheWho87's question whether your request to add all those genders was sarcasm or whether you were serious. So it wasn't an attempt at humor, and you want all those genders added as... credit roles? ;-)

I would have thought "Cast" was the best option since you are adding the cast of the film/show.

Actor/actress would be best used on the credit page to indicate what the individual does.

If you really want to add a "gender nuteral role" write one in for each role or use "Cast".

Or add 100000000000000000000000's new genders which will resolve all people and there mind sets.

If you asked an actor "What is your profession?" he or she most likely would not say "I'm a CAST." It is weird to list an individual's role in a film as CAST. They are part of the cast, but not a cast.

Thanks ek see they would say im a actor / actree part of a cast, the cast makes up the majourity of the film roles like.

writer
director
actor
actress
make-up artist
cinematographer
animation
special effects
composer
set designer / direction
driver
stunts

etc etc

That is a cast and the indervidal role would be actor or actress.

Developers should add "Fluffer" to list of roles.

Argh?

definition please

Nevermind. That is usually an uncredited role. Disregard.

I don't think we need uncredited roles just the main ones and if you want to really add it write it in as create i guess.

Golf Clap????

I understand that not everyone here is a native English speaker (neither am I), so maybe this is needed:

actor

A person whose profession is acting on the stage, in films, or on television.

cast

The actors taking part in a play, film, or other production.

crew

A group of people who work closely together.
‘a film crew’

(Definitions courtesy of Oxford English Dictionary.)

from the rules

There is currently no agreed role for the general cast members of a film. Many films entered simply refer to these roles as Cast, however for non-fiction film entries it may be more suitable to use Featuring or Presented By. For animated feautres many prefer to use the role Voice or Voice Actor. For music video entries it is preferred to use the role type Performer. that is the rule there is no agreed role.

that is a great definition and should be used.

Actor and actresses in feature films / tv shows

Cast for plays and stage productions

Film crew which would be all other roles writers, directors, composers, storyboard artists, cameramen, sound and lightning crew, costume designer, props, location scout, drivers, gaffer,set decoraters, msic production, producers, cinematgrapher's, production, asssiasnt director, film editors and any other roles

Self should be used for stand up comedians, sports people, wrestlers, pornographic actresses and actor's unless its a softcore film actor / actress should be used.

voice actress / actor for animation films, anime, cartoons.

artist / preformer for musicians on stage like concert recordings

can we all agree on this and get it placed in the official rules like the wrestlers one we are all agreeing on.

actor

A person whose profession is acting on the stage, in films, or on television.

that is a great definition and should be used.

followed by

Actor is non-gender. Keep it simple.

(The above definition does not account for animal performers.)

Well EK what do you propose?

All i have seen is sarcasim and denial, like always, by the way you still burning books?

^
Ment as a joke.

How much clearer does it have to be:

ACTOR - for men/women/undefined genders/animals

This is my question from first post on this page:

Shouldn't "Actor" be used to describe a single actor (dude or chick or undefined or non-human) rather than "Cast"?

I still think actor for men actress for women.

I will never add actor to a female role.

Cast shold be used for stage playes.

Animals yeah actor i gues.

cast
The ACTORS taking part in a play, film, or other production.

That said, we should agree to disagree. All of the current ROLE options will remain AND users are going to do what they want to do regardless of what dumb stuff you or I post in these forums.

Yes lets keep it that way, lets only use the fourms for duplicates and reporting users making fake films.

Do we really need them at all?

https://www.filmo.gs/guidelines/about

Read it!!!!!

If you could find anywhere that states that we should enter Actors, Actresses, Directors, Producers and so on. please tell me where!

On the other hand it tells several times to add as many different RELEASES as possible!

This Database is about the different RELEASES of a FILM, not about Actors, Directors or otherwise.

The only things we need on the FILM page is

Title.
Alternative Title.
Year.
Link.

We use all of the above already!
The link is usual to IMDB.Com and where you could find all info
about Actors, Cast and Crew.
That is why we have the LINK option.

If we were to add all of this info (such as Actors, Directors,Producers, etc,etc) in this database, i,ll see no reason for the link option.

So Please, start adding more RELEASES and don't care so much about
the CREDITS.

(EK_) you must think i'm an idiot, but that the way it is!
I,ll hope someday we will come to terms;)

// zamla_71

I've never created a CREDIT or FILM page.

But what if you want to find a release that features a specific actor, you'd have to search on IMDB to find the films they have been in, then cross refrence those with the films that are listed on this site and then you can search through the releases of said film.

Or we can just keep and use the credits on here.

Credits wil, stay due to the other ogs linking.

lol.

Seriously, though: I've always defaulted to "cast" as a generic role. What's considered best practice, then? Consistency or entering as-printed? (I guess it must be the later, but I tend to rely on a personal standard for consistency's sake if I become set in my ways).

I'm certainly fine with using whatever is printed, though. My only reservation is that it seems messy to me, having multiple roles that are effectively synonyms. But that's more of a personal hang-up. Discogs has it's share of seemingly redundant roles too.

its*. I'm drunk, as always.

Best practices is actor / actress for tv shows and movies.

Cast is best for stage plays

preformer is best for music concerts

that is all written in rules.

Just use what ever gender they think they are for gender nuteral people.

Or just what ever gender they were born.

For a few transexual credits i used actress, cause they were men who changed into females etc etc.

Can you explain how you devolved from this thinking to and I quote "tranny thing", I could get behind Trans Actor / Trans Actress or even just Actor / Actress for however they identify, but I see no justifiable reason to refer to ANYONE as a thing.

Wow no reason to get upset i put that there by mistake and reverted.

yeah change it to Trans Voice Actor.

And please add Voice Actress to women who are vocing because women are known as Actresses not Actors they are not men.

Actor is a genderless title, Actress is a gendered title only used for females. As such Voice Actor is suitable for EVERYBODY.

Who cares about the individuals genitals or what they identify as, just use a neutral term.

Sorry but i can't add actor to a actress.

And we finally just got people using both roles for the cast actor / actress before it was just actor.

I can get that, it's personal preference, that's why my preference is to use Cast, and would rather use an option of Voice Cast than Voice Actor.

But still really uncool to refer to ANYONE as a thing, and it was not a mistake, I changed it and you changed it back, that's why I felt I needed to fully update the cast list.
