“Strangers, again” – A Short by WongFu Productions

May 4, 2011

I’ve been following WongFu since college. Back before Phil met Ted & Wes and when he was just making silly lip-sync music videos. Back before Youtube or Facebook, when these videos went viral by people passing them around over various college networks. So to say I’m familiar with their work is a bit of an understatement. I’ve witnessed their transition from silly lip-syncers to full on video producers who have released shorts, legit music videos, mini-series, merchandising & more. Not everything they release is perfect but it’s been awesome to see them continue to hone their craft and grow as film makers, and as one of the pioneers of on-line video distribution and the face of many Asian-American projects.

But their latest production, a short entitled Strangers, again is by far my favorite release of theirs yet. I’m no film critic but their ability to weave together a tale generic enough that almost anyone can relate yet crafted well enough that I genuinely become attached to the characters in just 15 minutes-ish of time is quite impressive. Take a look:

And… I’ll leave it at that and let the video speak for itself. All I’ll say is that the short moved me in a way that brought forward a lot of memories, regrets, and understanding. The video is already a couple weeks old, and at over 5 Million views as of this writing, I imagine that many of you may have already seen it. If not, you’re missing out. It’s given me a couple things to think about for if and when I’m in my next relationship.
