Not all fields are mandatory, but it's highly recommended that you complete as many fields as possible.
Enter the name of your title in English.
- Use Title Case. Avoid ALL CAPS.
- Only enter the actual name of your title. Do not add additional information such as "- The Series" or "Award Winning Film".
- The Name must match the title in your video files (for English titles) or the name in the English text track (for non-English language titles)
Note: For non-English titles, it is often better to use an English translation of the foreign language titles rather than a transliteration. This is just a suggestion and not a rule, as often the foreign language title works better. For example "Rashomon" is a better title than its translation "castle wall gate."
