Hi there! We are a team of final year film students from Nanyang Technological University's School of Art, Design and Media and we are working on our thesis film, Janus.
We've put this page together in the hopes of sharing with you what we hope to achieve and to invite you to join us in making our vision a reality.

ABOUT THE FILM
Set in a public housing unit of present day Singapore, a reclusive freelance musician struggles to pay rent to his ailing landlord. Hoping to overcome his creative rut, he engages in a voyeuristic creative exercise, but in the process, he is forced to confront a wound from his past.
Janus is a psychological drama about self-blame and its debilitating effects on a person. I believe that self-blame is an aspect of mental health that is something we often overlook or underestimate, especially when it is borne from grief. It is a coping mechanism that creates an illusion of control, and often prevents the person from overcoming past traumas.
Through our reclusive protagonist, I hope to create a world manipulated by this insidious illusion of control through the voyeuristic perspective of camera and the emotive functions of music. I believe the experience of the film should thus reflect a reality where the line between what is truth, and what is lie, is blurred.
