Wong Fu Productions started out as a simple idea–a few college students interested in film. However, years later, it has turned into so much more.
“Their creative work has been recognized for their high quality and depth, attracting major corporations like Subaru, JC Penny, and AT&T, but also bringing in honors and praise from organizations like CNN, NPR, the 2008 Cannes, 2011 Sundance, and 2011 LA Asian American Pacific Film Festival, and even the White House when they met President Obama in 2011.”
Today, Wong Fu creates and sells little stuffed animals called “awkward animals.” In fact, they have their own line of stuffed animals, key chains, t-shirts, and more. They have over 2 million subscribers on Youtube, and they even just finished filming their very own movie.
“We never had the intention of making Wong Fu what it is today, but we know we’re very lucky and will do our best to deserve it. We believe we can have a positive influence in this industry, and on our audience…and if we can do this, then we know we’re doing something right.”
