In August 2013 an idea came to a young man. His idea was to make a YouTube channel for people who liked movies and geek culture as much as him.
At that time he had directed two short films. The first being a horror suspense film called “Camp Drake Murder!”. The second short film was a heist movie titled “Olympus Heist”. Both films were entered into a small private film festival but received few awards.
Not letting himself be discouraged the young man came up with the idea to share his love of geek culture to the internet.
On October 2, 2013 Hufflepuff Videos went public on Facebook. The name did not last long however. Seeing more potential for the brand, later that month it was officially renamed Hufflepuff Studios. With the help of a longtime friend, Hufflepuff Studios created its first logo. The classic orange and blue globe.
On December 4th, 2013 Hufflepuff Studios released its first series titled “Hufflepuff Files”. The series lasted 18 episodes.
A few months later on March 2, 2014 Hufflepuff Studios released its first short film. Shattered Roses was a drama that won best lead actor and actress, best score, and best editing. Sadly it lost best film.
Content struggled to be produced by the studio till October 19, 2015 with the introduction of a new series call “Corner Coffee Comment”. Hufflepuff Studios quickly redesigned itself and introduced another series called the “Movie Minute”. The summer of 2016 Hufflepuff Studios released its weekly podcast called the “Hufflecast”. New episodes talking about movies were released every Friday.
A test episode of a series called “Super Nerd Battle” had been released March 4th, 2016. The show had two hosts and had over 20 episodes planned. Sadly due to funding only three episodes were released.
At the beginning of 2017 Hufflepuff Studios started a branch YouTube page called “Through a Geek’s Eyes”. Only a polite episode was made before the studio dropped it.
On August 1, 2018 Hufflepuff Studios was rebranded once more and became WetheGeek. With the introduction of a new name also came six new creators. Luna, MKAmethyst, Incensum, TheDoctor, KaytheHuman, and Mabel. Each one helping to bring new content and their own style to the company.
Today WetheGeek has new content daily. Be it reviews, news, memes, videos, or stories one thing has remanded true. WetheGeek has, and alway will be, true to the Geeks and Nerds by making sure our content is always Geek centered.
Thanks for being there these past five years. And hopefully to many more.
