When is Split Screen on? New episodes?

Please see here for more information about Split Screen and where it went.

What about submitting films?

You're welcome to send us your 1/2" vhs tapes or DVDs, but keep in mind the following. We no longer work actively as producer reps, and even when we did, we were extremely selective, getting involved with at most one or two films a year. When you do send in your film, make sure to check back with us every couple of weeks until it's been seen. If you want your film returned, you must include a SASE.

Can I buy a VHS copy of Split Screen?

Officially, not just yet. However, if you're desperate for a particular episode, please email us your most ardent, shameless plea. Sadly our attempts over the last year to release a 4 DVD Best of Split Screen anthology got stalled. Between Chris Walken cooking exploding shrimp and Bruce Willis' bullies manhandling our camera crew, there must be an audience.

Disclaimer: Do not send scripts! We won't read them because we don't produce films from the script stage.
