The creation of Reel-T is founded, essentially, on more than just merging the art of performance, photography and videography. As a filmmaking IG, we seek to express and analyze relevant social issues and current affairs (typically with a comedic approach), allowing Tembusians to explore and contribute to their productions. Whether in devising plots through scriptwriting and storyboarding or executing the production itself through camerawork, acting and directing, Reel-T provides a diversity of opportunities to learn, develop and experiment one’s interest in filmmaking. Ultimately, we want to create films that celebrate our humanity, as derived and captured from the communal daily living in a residential college.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
