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.
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 "Señorita".
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.
