Wong Fu Productions Live In Malaysia

Wong Fu Productions were in town recently, where they held various meet the fans activities and even a 3 hour Wong Fu For Lyfe Performance at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus.  I was fortunate enough to get an invite from Kenwooi who in turn got it from Nuffnang to catch this famous filmmaking group in the flesh.

My Autographed Poster

Arriving at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus just in time to catch the Meet n Greet Session, I was pretty excited but not half as excited as the ladies that were there that afternoon.  The screams which emanate the hallways were shrill and really loud, it actually took me by surprise.

I turned back and saw this, screams.

Wong Fu Production's Philip and Wesley had the aura of superstars that afternoon, and throughout their whole performance at night.  As a matter of fact, I myself have watched most of Wong Fu Production's videos on Youtube, and they are really a great filmmaking group.

The ticket to catch their performance that night along with other acts

After queuing up with the screaming fans for some time, we finally obtained our autographed Wong Fu poster, and shoke their hands.  It was however too crowded and rushed to even get a good photo with these guys.  We then had a couple of hours to burn before the start of their mini concert at night. Catching up with other fellow bloggers, I had the chance to walk around Taylor University's campus, and I must say it was really beautiful.

The Performances that night

Overall it was truly an eye-opening experience, where I could see how Wong Fu Productions inspired all these people, and how in return the adoration was tremendous.  I leave you with a video made my Wong Fu Productions which I felt is really good, one with meaning. "Strangers Again", check it out below.

    Thanks for the fan account!
    lol for those who don't know Wong Fu, they are a film production company based in Los Angeles, USA. The company started as group of friends playing with cameras and stuff.

    I'm happy to know where they are now and hope they will get even more popular!! ^^
    They inspired to make short videos like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbXUbur2beI&context=C3302d49ADOEgsToPDskIJeQ-0hEFSYYXw2tjnm9wv
