Name: Freddie Wong
Hails from: LA (via Seattle)
Occupation: YouTube star, budding filmmaker, video enthusiast, Guitar Hero pro
Known for: Well, he actually says it best…
“Most people know me from my brief stint as a professional Guitar Hero/Rock Band player.
When I am not rocking faces with plastic, I am a filmmaker and musician in Los Angeles.”
Like 7,166,489 other people, we first encountered Wong when he released a sick video of himself rocking Rush’s “YYZ” on Guitar Hero’s expert level, and watched with nodding approval as he rose quick as crème fraîche to the top of the pro GH ranks.
But Wong’s real gifts, as highlighted by NewTeeVee’s Liz Shannon Miller this week, lie in his moviemaking. He’s a supreme film geek, the very best kind–the sort that watches an OK Go vid in the wee hours of the morning and immediately blogs his finely-tuned debunking of the myth that it was made in one shot:
…and teaches other filmgeeks how to do cool shit in production like light paint!
He’s funny, fresh, and has fast-as-f*ck fingers. Freddie Wong knows what he likes as well as what he’s good at, and he’s prolific in sharing that with the world. We love!
