Janet Productions was formed in 2018 by university students Finn Burge and Hugh Pearson. The pair have been responsible for dragging the Janet Productions machine into existence, both writing and directing for the company and recruiting an exceptionally talented group of fellow students and young creative professionals to help them make Janet a success.
