When Freddie Wong
talks, he does it with the same frantic energy and humor that have made him famous. This is especially true when speaking about his decision to quit his old job, working on direct-to-DVD films and jump into working exclusively online.
When faced with the proposition of another feature-length project, Wong said that he and Brandon Laatsch
, his partner in the video arts, asked themselves if they could do something new. It was clear to them that the Internet was changing how the film business was done, and that they should be a part of it. "At the time, it felt like if Apple computer had just come out and we were typewriter salesmen," Wong said at the Blip.TV offices in Manhattan. "So, should we keep selling typewriters?"
