For that matter - have a look at the consensus here.

What means this consensus ? A dozen of users spoke of a problem. No position from Ken, nothing in rules, it has just strictly no value.

To me, it means that I now have a consistent way to deal with this. But to you, it's probably just another opportunity to create more trouble.

In that screenshot, I personally don't see a space, so like Hal9g suggested, I would enter it as "David P. I. James [David P.I. James]" (unless his common name is David James, of course - haven't looked into that yet).

The Hitcher 2007 - David James - Visual Effects.
From recent audit (Nov. 09) of own.

Don't see him on Transformers (if that's the 2007 live film), but I didn't audit that one either.

Neither did I.
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

The Seeker The Dark is Rising = David P.I. James



I'll leave others to debate whether this is a valid Visual Effects credit

This URL shows IMD has his credits split under two names (not a surprise) http://movies.nytimes.com/person/354903/David-P-I-James/filmography

That means "David James"  (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0416411/)  and  "David P.I. James"  (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0416408/) are the same person

That being said I would like to add the following

The Matrix - David James -
Red Planet - David James -

Two questions on this:

a) Do we trust the NY Times without any other reference? Especially the latest entry for the Matrix-David -James in the IMDB indicates that this is not a well known one, doesn't it? Aren't special effects technician and visual effects producer two very different occupations (production vs. post production; technician vs. manager)?

b) Do we have a BY for David James to differentiate from the tons of David James out there?
