I'd always love going to universities.
Its a part of my journey which I never get to experience.
Words can be more powerful than films, it keeps the filmmaker going.
Thank you NUS for such a wonderful evening.
Royston Tan.

    Hi there!!

    i finally found how to comment here!! hahha..

    anyway royston, it was great having you around. Guess that you really amazes us with the things that you say. Guess that all our lives are like movies, isnt that what they say in chinese 人生如戏, 戏如人生! got to know that all your films are part of your life and it makes it more real and something that we can identify with.

    Continue to make great shows for us to catch on the big and small screen. and waiting for the day that you would do us proud winning some big awards!! Hehe..in the meantime..take care and God bless..

    Yours,
    Liwei top

    HI 'RTBG',

    would like to commend you for your continuous effort to record the journey of royston in his film-making career... great job done so far... don't be discouraged by the few comments that you are getting 'cos that does not mean that nobody is reading it~ (^^,)
    i for one have been reading this blog to get information on royston so keep it up!

    to royston,
    thank you for coming down to nus and share with us your experience in the film industry. i can just 'see' all the arrows shooting around in this industry.. but i have to say that you are one of the rare talents in singapore... mayhaps you will be the one to bring singapore film into the market worldwide... jiayou!!

    Hey royston!!

    Had so much fun when u came down to nus. One of the few lectures we ever had that kept us awake and attentive the whole time. maybe u could consider becoming a lecturer if u get sick of doing films!

    thanks for the wonderful life experience u shared, and the juicy gossips!
    well whatever it is, stay cool! we are definitely looking forward to your new film! :) top

    881 inspired me to look at my own culture for its quirkiness and uniqueness.

    I am not Chinese and do not speak fluent mandarin or hokkien, but I certainly enjoyed the film tremendously. (yes, i cackled till my tummy hurt and sniffled at the end)..

    the power of images and sound put in a local context amazes me...asia is so rich with history and culture and you manage to capture that so well! Singapore ought to be proud. your humble beginnings and climb up the talent ladder should inspire aspiring content producers to do the same...

    p/s to the webmaster...love the blog! you are creating the most wonderful of convergences....local film-maker + online content = more exposure for the local film industry. carry on your good work....many appreciate it :) top

    Mr Royston....
    You went NUS and you never announce? :( *sad* Next time announce your schedule on the blog lah, so ardent fans like us can be there to show our support.



    And to BG:
    You may wish to moderate comments by deleting spams or bad comments instead of having to approve them? Cos I think it's more exciting to see our comments go up instantly. Like FM HYR's blog. Few of us know each other but because of the frequent posting, we have made friends via his blog. Just a suggestion.. :) top

    Dear Royston,

    I want to thank you for coming to my class yesterday evening. My students and me enjoyed so much of your talk. The classroom was full and people who came in late could not find a seat. I can tell that you are an inspirator and a role model for many young kids here.

    Just want to wish you the best in your future filmmaking career. Hope there is chance to have you as one of our artists in residence in the near future! :)

    Best regards,

    Peichi, NUS top
