Update 2: You can now access the Tak Giu files at the mirror site.
Update 1: You all ah, one go all go. The site is currently down due to bandwidth limit exceeded. People know good stuff when they see it, I suppose, and news travels fast.
From Jacen: Hi guys, takgiu.rantx.com is down for the moment, due to overwhelming traffic. We hope to fix it soon, do check back again =) (thanks to mrbrown for spreading the word too)
The multi-talented Jacen Tan wrote, directed, produced, acted, composed the music, and edited this indie short film, Tak Giu, about three boys, a ball and no place to play.
Very slick indeed. And some parts made me laugh out loud.
Oh, and stay for the credits for a hilarious bit at the end.

From the site:
"Tak Giu" (15mins, Singlish/with English subtitles) is an indie film which follows the journey of 3 soccer-crazy boys. Having taking up the challenge of a friendly soccer match, the boys realize that it is not easy to find a good, free public soccer field in Singapore… if there’s any at all. Through their journey they encounter obnoxious care-takers, locked-up fences, deterring weather and a persistent policeman. Will they be able to find their dream soccer pitch?
