Director Biography - Tom Jancso

Based in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom, directing is something I've been obsessive and passionate for since I first started making films in secondary school. I thrive on pushing unique and inventive concepts, while keeping that raw and relatable human element at the heart of a story. Combining a slick, visual edge with each narrative, I'm always on the hunt to show people something new.

Graduating with a Batchelor's Degree in Film Production at the University of Gloucestershire, I'm now continuing to develop my own projects as a freelance writer & director.

Director Statement

This film was made with the intention of visualizing the common phrase “curiosity killed the cat”, but to an extreme level. It was important for us to make this film, as it taps into our own desires to discover. To find out. To understand. Even if we know we’re not supposed to. This was a student film made in our second year of university, but we tried our absolute hardest to elevate it to a professional level. Through the entirety of the production process, we treated each step with as much maturity and effort that would be expected on a high budget project, injecting all our passion and creativity into getting it made for the benefit of not only testing our skills as filmmakers, but also providing an entertaining film that audiences would enjoy.
