ScreenPrism is the trusted place you go after watching a film or TV show to enrich your appreciation of what you’re watching. We are developing the largest digital library of film and television analysis and commentary by producing high quality, entertaining video essays and articles, curating content from other esteemed sources and facilitating user generated discussion.
Many of us gather with friends to talk about and analyze the films or TV programs we just watched. Or, we surf the Internet searching for explanations to a show we’re watching while sitting on our couches. Now, for the first time, there is a centralized hub for high quality, entertaining film and TV analysis where you can find explanations and engage in dialogue with other like minded movie & TV buffs.
