Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Pages moved. No objections and seems entirely reasonable. Affected pages are Andrew Adams (filmmaker), Jennifer Lee (filmmaker) and Michael Mackenzie (filmmaker). (non-admin closure)  — Amakuru (talk) 12:36, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

– Following a similar move of Robert Eagle (writer and director) to Robert Eagle (filmmaker), let's move these four to a more concise, standard disambiguator that best encapsulates their notability. Per WP:D, disambiguators should be non-unique. Technically, these four aren't unique, but the alternative is far more common. See, for example, John Hughes (filmmaker) and Chris Columbus (filmmaker). I wouldn't object to just plan (writer) or (director) if any of these individuals are known primarily for such work, but that doesn't seem to be the case for any of them at first glance, and with the first, there's some potential for confusion with Andy Adams (writer). --BDD (talk) 18:50, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Page move - Filmmaker as disambiguation[edit]

WikiProject Film was not alerted to this move. There have been discussions at WT:FILM which concluded that the term filmmaker should be avoided in article titles. The purpose of disambiguation in a WP page title is to differentiate, not give a complete or specific description of the role a person does. That should be done in the article. This is not always the perfect solution to DAB issues, but it seems to be what consensus has arrived at. This has been brought up more than once on WP Talk pages. For example I recall the reaction when Walter Hill (director) was moved to Walter Hill (filmmaker), then eventually back again. This can be seen at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Film/Archive 41#Walter Hill: director or filmmaker? and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers/Archive 8#Walter Hill: director or filmmaker?. More recently John Waters (1934 Academy Award winner) was moved to John Waters (director born 1893), as discussed at length at Talk:John Waters (director born 1893)

All of the articles named in the section above should be moved to screenwriter or director. - Gothicfilm (talk) 01:28, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Per my reply at WT:FILM - Filmmaker redirects to, surprise, surprise, Filmmaking. That article states "Filmmaking involves a number of discrete stages including an initial story, idea, or commission, through scriptwriting, casting, shooting, editing, and screening the finished product before an audience that may result in a film release and exhibition." So if an individual is known for writing, shooting, producing and editing his/her films AND directing them, then I'd use the dab of (filmmaker), otherwise (director) should be used.
