Todd Louiso's "15 Minute Hamlet"

I'm looking for a copy of Todd Lousio's "15 Minute Hamlet".

Todd Louiso directed a short film version of Tom Stoppard's "15 Minute Hamlet" in 1995. It was shown at film festivals and has been occasionally shown on the Sundance Channel -- it's 22 minutes and so I think they use it to "fill in" the remainder of a half-hour time slot when a movie runs, say, 5 minutes into the next time slot. I've been trying to find a copy for some time with no success. Has this film ever been released on VHS or DVD, possibly in a collection of short films, or as a special feature on another movie?

Search for "Fifteen" instead of "15"

Response by poster: Yes, there are a variety of live performances of the play "15 Minute Hamlet" posted on YouTube (mostly student performances). What I'm looking for is a specific adaptation to a short film, directed by Todd Louiso, and starring Austin Pendleton as Hamlet, Todd Louiso as Ophelia, and Philip Seymour Hoffman in several roles. I've definitely looked on YouTube and I just did a new search for "minute Hamlet" and looked through the first 12 pages of results, just in case I had missed it (by page 12 you're well into unrelated videos). Thanks, though.

Best answer: Thanks to a non-MeFite who found this question in his googling for the same film but then also found a newly uploaded YouTube video (from a 1980s videotape) of the short film in question. Thanks, AC:
