    Hi Royston! Thank you for showcasing your brilliant works at Hwa Chong Institution. I loved the cinematography, the emotions, the brilliant colors and the messages threaded delicately through your films. We are currently studying your film 15 for GP. :) Continue making outstanding films, and making Singapore proud of you. :) top

    HI! Thanks for coming to HCI to share the film with us..I seriously think that it's a brilliant idea to archive the opera functionings and stuff so that the future generations can get a feel of what chinese opera is all about..good effort and rock on~! top

    Thanks for coming to hwa chong, it was a moving experience. I didn't know that opera were such an important component in our chinese tradition and that the preservation of it is extremely crucial. It is a sad fact indeed that this tradition is fading, but yet these people endured the hardship to continue to preserve this tradition. They should be honored. Let us give our support to them as well!!! top

    Actually, some TJC classes have watched 15 during GP. (the CUT version =p)

    U have an awesome affinity for the 'song and dance' aspect of film, it rly enriches the plot!

    I feel tat the kitschy sense of humor and unexpected approach is wad makes ur works outstanding.

    Pls keep it up,

    hi royston, i also find 15 quite a disturbing film. the censored version even. it made me think alot. hahah. i stil can't seem to understand and approve the things that they do. how can i/we help these young teenagers?

    i wonder if those actors are really gangsters in real life?are the things that gangsters do such as fights and smuggling of drugs quite common in schools nowadays? and are there alot of ppl joining gangs?please enlighten me. thks! top

    TJCians were awed by Royston’s wit (both in his sharing and films), smarting sarcasm, sincerity and passion. Despite having won a jaw-dropping number of awards, TJCians were touched by Royston’s humility and affability. Hurray for capturing local snapshots that are part of our precious heritage & national education, and bravo for fighting valiantly against stifling conservatism at the frontline; his talk resonated so strongly about censorship and the need to redress conservatism in the arts, which are crucial issues the younger generation has to address and grapple with. Thank you, Royston, for laying that foundation – for trying to conserve without being conservative - and TJ sends you our best wishes for your film-making endeavours and sincerest hopes in your conquests of more awards! ☺ top

    Heys from TJC

    My class really loved CUT! it was totally amazing. The message was so clear and it had a nice musical element in it.

    Once, during lessons we were discussing about this issue that people who take afternoon naps will have lesser chance of dying from heart disease. So our teacher told us it was out of her control. so the first thing that came to our minds was to make a short video! haha. top

    I'm currently residing in Perth Australia, and i actually saw Royston's $1 tissue paper clip on tv. Impressive! Anyway, what's the mtv/vid's title? Can't seem to find it anywhere. Could you give me a heads up? Preferably if you could post it on you tube. Keep up the good work mate!
