For those that haven't yet heard of Wong Fu Productions, then you truly do not browse the web enough. In 2003 a bunch of college dormmates from UC San Diego decided to pick up a videocamera (a Canon ZR10 to be exact) and make a homemade music video version of Justin Timberlake's "Senorita". They created a website and placed the video online which attracted hundreds of hits a day, from places all around the world.
Through word-of-mouth and friends showing friends, the video and website soon gained tremendous fame and popularity; since then Wong Fu has consistently put out several other video productions and with the success of their short comedy "Yellow Fever" (that sets out to answer the question on every Asian male's minds of "why all the white guys are taking our girls") that was released earlier this year, the guys are now back with their first feature full-length film "A Moment With You" (which explores love and relationships).
The film was featured at the 2006 San Diego Asian Film Festival and is now being screened in a North American tour that will hit Vancouver on November 28th, 2006 at the University of British Columbia's Norm Theatre (tour blog). More information is available through UBC's Chinese Varsity Club (CVC).
