The trio met at the University of California, San Diego in 2004 and produced a number of music videos and short films released on their website and later You Tube before establishing a professional media company, Sketchbook Media, after their graduation.

Their works have been featured at a number of national and international film festivals, including the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, San Diego Asian Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival.

Wang mainly utilised his family's digital camcorder to film school projects in collaboration with classmates.

The name Wong Fu is a nickname that Philip was given when he was in the seventh grade.

In his first year as an undeclared freshman at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Wang and his friends released a music video of Justin Timberlake's song "SeƱorita".

In 2004, Wang met classmates Wesley Chan (graduated from Mills High School in 2002) and Ted Fu through a school production, and the trio began working on small scale projects in their spare time and for class assignments.

They did not originally consider filmmaking as a career when they entered university; Chan explored an interest in animation, Fu had been a student in electrical engineering and Wang considered a career in economics.

After approximately five years, Wong Fu Productions garnered 1 million subscribers in 2011.

On June 8, 2013, Wong Fu Productions celebrated their 10 year anniversary and produced a 13 minute short on June 29 featuring Christine Chen, the surrounding cast of Wong Fu, and many familiar faces, including Ryan Higa, Dominic Sandoval (D-Trix), Kevin Wu (Kev Jumba), Freddie Wong, Brandon Laatsch, Joe Penna (Mystery Guitar Man) and the Fung Brothers.

It was also screened at the San Diego Asian Film Festival on October 18, 2006.

The film revolves around two neighbors who share similar romantic situations, in which one person in each relationship cannot let go of his or her past.
