Split Ends is the second short film from Bad News Media, creators of Judge a Blank by its Blank. Split Ends is a comedy horror about Lilah. After a sudden breakup, Lilah tries to get rid of any sign of her ex-girlfriend. Unfortunately, she can't get untangled.

At the premiere of Split Ends, Bad News Media will present other local short films, episodes of Judge a Blank by its Blank, and stand-up comedy by Britt Spruill, Kathleen McDonald, and Gretchen McNeely.

Bad News Media was started by former bandmates Bryan Reklis, Tim Fenwick, and Kenny Jones. After they were no longer playing music in the band Supreme Fiction, they wanted a new creative outlet together. Bryan is a video producer, and Tim and Kenny both had ideas for videos. The first thing they did was create a web series called Judge a Blank by its Blank. The basic idea is to actually judge a book by its cover and to apply that theory to different mediums as well. So, judging an TV show by its theme song, judging an album by its cover, judging a product by its commercial, etc.

After creating three seasons of JABBIB, they decided to make a short films. Their first film, Basilisk, came out in 2017. In the future, they plan on creating a feature-length film.

Britt Spruill is performer, host, and a producer with Eyes Up Here Comedy. She has been performing comedy since 2012, and you see her around the Triangle and North Carolina.

Kathleen McDonald is a rising comedian based in Chapel Hill, NC. She is one of ?Founding Sisters? of Eyes Up Here Comedy which feature all lady identifying line-ups in sold out shows all over North Carolina. She has performed in the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival in 2015 and 2017, where she opened for Emo Philips, and the North Carolina Comedy Festival for 2018. She made her TV debut as a writer and performer on The Alex Fanning Show which aired on the People's Channel. Currently, she is working as a teacher and producer at The Peoples Improv Theater in Chapel Hill. Her jokes center around personal experiences from light and relatable to dark and bizarre.

Gretchen McNeely is a seasoned performer with a background in sketch, improvisation, stand-up, voiceover, radio and humor writing. She's had the good fortune to open for Jen Kirkman, Maria Bamford, and Kurt Braunohler, among others. Gretchen is currently a comic, storyteller, event host, and corporate speaker. She has two young daughters, both already skilled in feigned innocence and misdirection.
