is an independent music and video producer whose output defies easy explanation. Its first release was the irreverent comedy romp "Backstage Banana,"
starring rock & roll comic C.C. Banana
. It chronicles his behind-the-scenes misadventures as he invades one of the biggest rock tours of the year, interviewing and roasting the members of such '80s icons as Poison
. This effort was followed by SplitScreen Entertainment
's initial music offering, KISS MY ANKH: A Tribute To Vinnie Vincent
. Consisting of new interpretations of songs composed by the onetime Kiss
guitarist, it features performances by members of such established acts as Trixter

Currently SplitScreen Entertainment is rolling out its biggest and most ambitious project to date, WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks. A unique tribute album with a decidedly offbeat premise, it features all-new recordings of popular songs praising the fuller female figure. The tribute showcases the music of Queen, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Spinal Tap, Sir Mix-A-Lot and more, performed by members of such legendary bands as Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Cinderella, Danger Danger, L.A. Guns and others. Don't be surprised if this unorthodox item ends up becoming the feelgood album of the year.
SplitScreen Entertainment is the brainchild of its executive producer A.J. Confessore, who never balks at tackling ideas that others might deem far-fetched. Before founding the company in 2003, Confessore honed his craft at such entertainment institutions as The Jim Henson Company, Comedy Central, HBO, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and Troma Films. He is also a graduate of the prestigious NYU Film & Television program, where his friends and classmates included actor Thomas Lennon, director Eli Roth, author Caprice Crane, TV writer Frank Sebastiano and comedian John Fugelsang. Over the years, A.J. has had the privilege of working with a wide variety of industry veterans and mainstays, ranging from director James Cameron to actor Ed Helms to the late John Denver. Once a frequent guest on daytime talk television and a longtime rock radio personality, A.J. also starred in the fan-favorite Star Wars short film series "Silent But Deadly" (winner of Lucasfilm's "Spirit of Fandom" award). Whether functioning as creator, producer or performer, A.J. Confessore can always be counted upon to deliver something as exceptional as it is unconventional.
SplitScreen Entertainment would also like to acknowledge the contributions of its project consultant R.E. Asbury, founder of Lunar Moth Entertainment and proprietor of TributeAlbums.com. Without his sage advice and guidance, SplitScreen Entertainment would be a lot less entertaining.
