You are assuming that they are listing an intern. Unless you have first hand knowledge by working beside them on the film, you don't know.
This is the same as Special Effects with a list of names following, especially when there is a SFX Coordinator, SFX Foreman and then a list of Special Effects, I know they are the rank and file workers for special effects but they still get contributed.


In fact I am not assuming anything.
It is your point that individual credits are irrelevant if the header is "VFX by Company Name".
So if they are irrelevant the only logical conclusion is  that interns are allowed for DVDProfiler too (provided they are credited below this header)and so are IT-Techs and what else you may find credited.

Strangely though, you seem to refuse my main question:
Quote:


What do you think may be the reason that the VFX section alone has specifically mentioned ""Individual Credits"?
Is it by any chance possible that it is implemented to prevent mass-entering of unspecified crew?


I agree with Lewis here

The real issue here is if you interpret that the data from the company header propagates to the crew roles within the group.  Personally I don't think it should, whether it be "Additional" or "Visual Effects By".

I can see both sides.  If you interpret that the attributes of the company header propagates to the crew roles within it is easy to interpret "Visual Effects By ABC", and a list of names with no roles is the equivalent to a standard credit grouping.

If you interpret that the attributes of the company header do not propagate to the crew within it is easy to interpret "Visual Effects By ABC", and a list of names with no roles and names with no roles do not get credit.

So the real question is if attributes of the company header propagates to the crew within as attributes of the roles.

But we use the context of a header in the film credits to determine if the crew is valid in cases of Mexico Unit, Second Unit.. etc. so why wouldn't we use the context of VFX by Double Negative in this case. and in the case of Additional VFX by _____, should not be valid. We either use the context of the group headers or we don't, and if we don't then any valid crew credit that is in the crew chart should be valid, no matter what the header states.

I was just simply pointing the focus of the issue which is if attributes of the company header propagates to the crew within as attributes of the roles.

If you recall there was a thread on "Additional Makeup" or something (I don't have time to search for it now), but if I recall there was no clear consensus.  But this topic was discussed there in detail as well

And if the header didn't have a company name in it there would be no problem. It would be the same as Special Effects group headers, if there is no complete discription of job, they are included but if there is a job title such as Special Effects Rigger, it's not allowed.
