    well..if you are looking for 15 (full version) don't think you can find it cause it was not released commercially.

    but i think you can the short film version somewhere..a friend managed to download it somewhere. (p2p)

    as for his other films, i think the short film "censor" (i think that's the name) is on talkingcock.com but i never managed to download/watch it from there...maybe the link is fixed now.

    actually looking out more of the "CUT" short film, not "censor". everytime i got to talkingcock.com, the link seems to be not working.
    o well... guess i'll just wait

    The short film version of 15 and some other older productions by royston tan is quite readily available on Kazaa and Edonkey.

    "Cut" was amazingly funny.

    You want to contact Royston Tan himself to enquire about his film? (Oh, he is so cute. )
    I think I can get his email from someone from my class. Then you can mail him to enquire what you want to enquire lah.
    He came to SP to give a talk about directing short films and all that.
    (He swore in all 4 different languages of Singapore in 4 seconds to make 15. *swoon*)

    It's better if Royston himself isn't interested in photography and does not frequent here..

    So far, I haven't gotten his contact numbers yet in case I really become a groupie.

    But darn, he's cute.
    But darn, he's 27...
    And he's not stuck up at all, unlike some certain famous director in Singapore.

    Oops. Am I embarrassing myself again?

    15 got banned because of homosexual issues.
    And yeah, also the chanting.. But more on the homosexual issue.

    if it is available in overseas websites, go ahead and order them. do not worry about custom checks. (so singaporean, worry about everything, then froze!!) order first, it is not like illegal narcotics that the dogs can sniff it out. even if they were detected, they will ask you if you will pay for the censors to snipe it. otherwise, the stuff is destroyed. full stop!

    i did say 'IF they were detected'. anyway, your atitude is defeatish, not entirely surpirising. no venture, no gain!

    i have not seen the film. though i remembered from the news that it was the police who wanted the gangsters type chantings to be scaled down or removed before they will allow a 'looser' classification.

    Yeah, I watched the full uncut version during 2003's Film Festival and there is NOTHING homosexual about it.
