It appears that either Matthew Mishory or someone posing as the filmmaker has created this account and chosen Mishory's production company, Iconoclastic Features, as his or her Wikipedia user name. Mishory's relevance as a filmmaker is undeniable, but the account's only edits appear to have been made to articles related to Mishory's projects - namely, Derek Jarman, Jonathan Caouette, Clint Catalyst, and James Preston (actor). Notably, on the latter page, an edit was added claiming that the actor was "best known" for his role in Joshua Tree 1951: A Portrait of James Dean - an as-yet unreleased indie film. I am not disputing Mishory's notability in any way, but I can't help but feel concern that these edits may conflict with WP:NPOV.
Additionally, I noticed on Delphinium: A Childhood Portrait of Derek Jarman, an article regarding one of Mishory's films, similar edits using very promotional language were added by IP address 76.170.244.207 - which seems to match the location of Iconoclastic Features, as per the address given on IMDB.com. I believe that all of these edits were made in good faith, but perhaps misguided - is there another editor who may be able to help assist this user so as not to violate WP:NPOV or harm the filmmaker's reputation?Feather Jonah (talk) 03:57, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
