Discuss The Collected Shorts of Jan Svankmajer

Item: The Collected Shorts of Jan Svankmajer

Language: en

Type of Problem: Incorrect_content

Extra Details: Since most, if not all, of his short films are already available as individual entries, shouldn't a collection such as this one be a collection rather than a movie? I was about to delete it, but wanted to hear another opinion first. The fact that it has an IMDB ID (tt1987659) made me hesitate. And I know there are more similar examples available in the database (id:46624 is a notable one).

This short Films are a bit like a DVD collection. Like a TV series put on one DVD. But apparently there is no other way to get this Jan Svankmajer Short films then under this imdb number. I think we should leave it.

Unfortunately even that entry in tmdb is just a collection of two imdb entries.

All individual short films on the two DVDs (http://www.zeitgeistfilms.com/film.php?directoryname=svankmajershorts) exist over at IMDB. I've just double checked that. Why not just create "The Collected Shorts of Jan Svankmajer" as one collection where the short films available could be added? If these were regular films they would be in a collection for sure.

I would understand it as episodes or chapter on the dvd. Do all individual short movies have a own imdb number? I would go just with the two dvd`s and summarize them as a collection. Still think that they are something like a Tv Series collection combined on a dvd or in that cases on two dvd's.
