NYP Talk

Film Appreciation Clinic
Students of Media Studies & Management.
Nanyang Polytechnic.

150 students from the media studies and management diploma course were in attendance as Royston Tan delivered his first school talk of the new year. In a cosy lecture hall setting, Royston Tan showcased two of his short films, After The Rain and D.I.Y, both being commissioned projects. Royston said, "I thought that it was a different session today in that I talked more about the flip side of film making." The students experienced first hand insights to various aspects of filmmaking and answers to a wide array of queries, which included never before made known pieces of information. In reference, he added that "the personal sacrifices and the difficulties" were not topics that he talked about in depth during previous showcases.

    The first time that I saw Royston in person was at the meet and greet session for 12 Lotus at Jurong Point's Golden Village. My family had made our way there from Yishun just to catch him in person.

    Today was my second time seeing him up close and personal.

    As one of the group members for this Film Clinic, I would like to thank Royston and you guys again for coming down and making this event a resounding success.

    I really enjoyed the two films of different genres that were shown, as well as the refreshing sharing session.

    Mich's going to ask our friend cum photographer Khad to burn a CD of the photos that she had taken, and she will pass it to you guys soon.

    All the best for the year ahead.

    Mr Tan, it was interesting having you to come to nyp. if we have questions, more like informal ones, can we ask here?
    I want to ask who the 2 guys that came with you. One must be the bodyguard right? I remembered michelle mentioning Sufian. top

    And For NYP, Its so heartenign to see such lovely crowd like you guys:)

    Truthfully speaking, I look up to Royston as one of my mentors in the film-making industry in Singapore. I have to say, I think I was star-struck seeing him for the first time in NYP. Knowing that my group invited him to give a talk, that adrenalin of knowing that he's coming is still felt until today.

    As part of the team that made the FAC a success, I thank Royston for putting time aside to come to our school for this important talk. It is an honour to have you to grace such an event and to also give your views to the students in NYP.

    Good luck to you in the future!=) top

    Dear Mr Royston Tan,

    Your presence during the film appreciation clinic was very enriching. I really love After The Rain which made me cry in silence as I didn't want my friends to notice. I think it was very well done and the music score was very emotive which managed to pull my heart strings.

    Your QnA session was great as you gave us very honest answers which is a good heads up to what the industry is like.

    I would really like to thank you for finding time to be with us last Tuesday. And I wish you all the best in your endeavors! Cheers!! top
