It’s possible that Asian.Train.Productions, otherwise known as ATP, might become the next internet sensation. This performance group, which features local high school students, has posted multiple videos on the webpage to share their work with the world.

The group showcases Los Alamitos High freshman Gabriel Bae and Cypress High’s Miguel Ituralde, Los Al residents Algernon Carillo and Michael Oh, and Nathaniel Groner of Seal Beach. The group intends to one day join the ranks of Youtube legends Ryan Higa, Wong Fu Productions and Smosh.

It’s possible that Asian.Train.Productions, otherwise known as ATP, might become the next internet sensation. This performance group, which features local high school students, has posted multiple videos on the webpage to share their work with the world.

The group showcases Los Alamitos High freshman Gabriel Bae and Cypress High’s Miguel Ituralde, Los Al residents Algernon Carillo and Michael Oh, and Nathaniel Groner of Seal Beach. The group intends to one day join the ranks of Youtube legends Ryan Higa, Wong Fu Productions and Smosh.

ATP formed about a year ago. Bae, the founder, named it after an inside joke that he shared with a former member who recently left the group. He quickly began to recruit new members, such as Ituralde.

“I did some work with them back in December,” said Ituralde, who contributed to ATP while working on his own channel, Cumcwatsinc. “These boys [Groner, Oh, and Carillo] were later added to the mix.”

Most of the group is new to the Youtube world, but they have already contributed to the growth of Asian.Train.Productions. Also, because of Groner and his father, the group is filming a 15-to-30 second, anti-littering campaign video, which they plan to submit to a contest called “Be the Street.”

The winner of that competition will receive a $1,000 cash prize and, as Groner pointed out, “a chance to be on television.”

Each member brings something different to the table. Groner contributes brains and fearfulness, as shown in the video “Slender Reaction Video,” Carillo and Ituralde bring extroverted personalities, Bae contributes creativity and Oh sparks laughter with his trademark dry humor.

Their low budgets eliminate pressure and create fun atmospheres. Additionally, the group members have bonded, forming a chemistry that’s visible in their videos, which are gaining the Los Alamitos members some notoriety in their hometown.

“I like the guys equally,” said Bae, who hopes ATP will one day accumulate enough views to take off on Youtube. “They are my closest friends. Working with them feels like a dream job sometimes.”

Editor’s Note: ATP features four videos and 89 subscribers on Youtube. Views of the videos vary from 115 to 400, with most viewers voting that they approve of the material.
