|From Left Wesley, Ted & Philip|
The first official “wong fu video” was released on June 5, 2003. It was a lip sync video that Philip made with his dormmates to Justin Timberlake’s “Senorita” and that video is no longer available at YouTube(Full Ver) huhu. The video was shared around the college and soon spread to other college campuses. Over the rest of their time in college, Philip and his friends periodically made lip sync videos solely for fun and whenever there was time. Philip met Wes and Ted in 2004 through a visual arts class they were taking. Together, the 3 started making short films in addition to music videos, and even did some simple client work. During the final year of school, the 3 decided to venture into a larger project, a full length feature movie. They spent their entire 4th year of college working on this film, on top of school and jobs, and premiered the finished product, “A Moment with You”, just weeks before graduating.
After graduating in June 2006, Wes, Ted, and Phil decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue the prospects of filmmaking. For the first time Wong Fu Productions went on tour, initially to screen their movie “A Moment with You”. The “AMY Tour” took them to over 25 schools around the continent and was also the first time they got to see fans and supporters face to face. The 3 knew that Wong Fu Productions was truly something special and could not just be tossed aside of given up. As a result they continued to make new short films and music videos to keep Wong Fu Productions going. In addition they took on freelance video jobs for tv stations, small businesses, and even weddings.
In 2007 Wong Fu Production made and released a short series called “Just a Nice Guy”. This series marked the beginning of the “Nice Guy” brand, as Phil wore a shirt that Wes designed in the short, and soon, thousands of fans were asking where they could buy the shirt. The “AreYouANiceGuy” online store was launched. As the brand grew with new products and more customers. It was during this year that they guys also began working with Far East Movement. Their first project together was a short film called “You’ve Got a Friend”, made to promote their single of the same name. This was the beginning of a long term partnership of projects and endeavors together, primarily the “International Secret Agents” Concerts.
In 2008 Wong Fu Production spent most of the year working on the prospect of a new full length movie. After being approached by a couple producers and a manger, they began work on a new script and story that was intended to be their next film. With various meetings with studios and independent production houses, and even a trip to Cannes to promote, the project was soon losing focus and Wong Fu Productions was losing control of what they originally wanted, people were trying to change them as a group. In late 2008, the guys decided to shelve this project, “The Sleep Shift”, and to bring things back to the way Wong Fu Productions was originally created and run.
1st music video Wong Fu Productions working on with YouTube Community, David Choi
Though Wong Fu Productions had had their work on YouTube for years already, they had never really gotten involved in the community or tried to push their online presence. Starting in early 2009, through meeting David Choi and working on his first music video, Wong Fu Productions began meeting and opening up to the online “youtube” community. From a project with David, to meeting Christine “Happyslip”, then Kevin “KevJumba”, Cathy Nguyen, AJ Rafael, Ryan “NigaHiga” and so on, Wong Fu Productions was now plugged into this network of extremely talented and good people. From there, projects developed and through these collaborations, Wong Fu Production’s online presence expanded rapidly, even better, they made new friends.

Actually, I wanted to follow Wong Fu Productions footsteps in Mattmors Production. But not sure whether it's appropriate or not. For now I follow Wong Fu Productions footsteps by Dedek Conference because I am sure, if they can succeed, why do not I? Right???? So this is my first break!!! writing a blog and would buy the camera to record video. This is what I want in my life. This is work that interests me more than once. I wanted to be like Pete Teo and be my idol Wong Fu Productions. With the motto Wong Fu Productions hold "If at the end of the day there's someone out there who has a better day Because of us, then we've succeeded" and that person is me~:D...Last but not least, just for fun!!! i show to you all, my music video which is me myself sing jason mraz song "Live High" huhu ;p
