From musicians and vloggers, to athletes and travelers, we’re always looking for ways to get Skype users closer to their favorite people. This month, we teamed up with the crew at Wong Fu Productions for a series of group chats to give fans the opportunity to have a say in what plays out in their next video.
With 2.9 million followers on YouTube, the filmmaking trio of Wesley, Ted, and Philip—known as Wong Fu—are recognized around the globe for their super-engaging short films, sketches, and vlogs, which could have you crying with laughter one day, and weeping with sorrow the next. And they’re no strangers to Skype either, having partnered with us earlier this year to create “Crossing Point,” a short film that tugs on the heartstrings of all who watch it. Directly informed by story suggestions and tips from budding film enthusiasts within an exclusive Skype group chat—led by Wesley, Ted, and Philip—”Crossing Point” currently has over 920K views on YouTube alone. Building on that success, we’re embarking upon a new and exciting collaboration.
From November 28 to December 1, you’re invited to bring your big ideas and questions into a new series of exclusive Skype group chats with Wesley and Philip. The chats will go down at 2 p.m. PST every day, and you’ll be able to stick around and chat with other fans once they’re done. On November 28 and 29, they will be looking for help in brainstorming ideas for their next story—from the plot and characters, to the tone and style, it’s all up for discussion! What’s more, during the chats on November 30 and December 1, they’ll answer questions and chat about production specifics related to a whole host of areas, including sourcing actors, writing scripts, and pre- and post-production techniques. If you’re a fan of film, you won’t want to miss this.
