SINGAPORE -- A crowd of young Indians were strolling around a public housing block, laughing and chirping away in Tamil. Senthil Nathan followed them, staring intently at his video camera. "Cut," he said, and a smile appeared on his face.

     This is a typical weekend for Nathan and the members of his filmmaking group. The 23-year-old Singaporean with Indian roots is currently shooting his first indie feature film in Tamil.
