Jem Splitter

Jem is a Melbourne-based emerging screenwriter, skilled across the spectrum from comedy to kind-of-funny drama, with a particular die-hard passion for genre TV. Since pivoting to screen, Jem has co-created Hipster Jesus (optioned by Gaumont Television), and created the sci-fi black comedy Displaced and the kids’ animated sci-fi Space on Earth, which between them have scored over a dozen placements in highly-rated international screenwriting competitions. Jem has also been successfully funded by Screen Australia, VicScreen, and the Community Broadcasting Foundation. 

In his previous life, he directed and wrote for the stage, with highlights including adapting and directing an award-winning production of the P.G. Wodehouse novel Something Fresh, directing The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and starring in Avenue Q and The Witches of Eastwick. Jem is also an experienced teacher, specialising in teaching speech and drama for young children.
