This past spring, Wong Fu launched their biggest and most challenging adventure yet, partnering with AT&T to create the interactive series, “Away We Happened.” This web series interacts with fans in an entirely new way, asking viewers questions at the conclusion of each episode. Starring Victor Kim and Jen (FrmHeadToToe), episode 1 opens in a New York coffee shop where strangers Daniel and Jean accidentally switch suitcases and end up leaving for different cities before they realize their mistake. With humor and palpable on-screen chemistry, Daniel proposes to Jean that he delivers the bag in person, and as the episode ends, viewers are given the task of how they want the next episode to progress. Giving viewers full control over the twists and turns of the series, Wong Fu wrote, shot and edited each subsequent episode based on audience involvement. Challenging, innovative and acquiring over 1 million views each episode, “Away We Happened” has set an entirely new connection between fans and their YouTube favorites.
“Away We Happened” star Victor Kim told NMR:
“I am extremely honored to have been a part of such an amazing project, and am very excited about the live stream event.”
On August 29, Wong Fu is teaming up with AT&T to host an “Away We Happened” live stream event in Los Angeles. At the live stream event, up to 150 fans will have the chance to meet Wong Fu Productions and the “Away We Happened” cast at a screening of all six episodes, including behind-the-scene footage, followed by a personal Q&A and meet & greet opportunity. Simultaneously, up to 10,000 fans can watch it live online, and text to 33992 or tweet to comment or ask questions during the panel discussion.
