40 Days Of Success – The Interview with Filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran

Filmmaker, writer, director, producer, actor, singer, rapper, editor Anthony “Rory” Tran highlights the talents and collaborations from Cincinnati to Los Angeles including short films, feature films, commercial work and more. Includes a look at the future work of TrippyTran and ART.

Discover an in-depth look at all 40 Days Of Success!

Back in March, you may have seen #40DaysOfSuccess on social media by multi-talented filmmaker, actor, singer/rapper, DJ, etc. Anthony “Rory” Tran as each day, he posted something to be proud of in the independent film community to industry media work. Now come end of September, the Tran Man shares his experiences producing Denizen, directing/writing Wreckfest, what’s going on with Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown and The Official Trippy Tran Films Shorts Collection, plus the new show Choices: An Interactive Story and an exclusive look at working on his debut pop album.

Something tells me this is just the beginning as grounds aren’t all covered (see the in-depth look at 40 Days Of Success above) as projects he ran camera for and DP’d like Maery Queens, The United Estates of America, PALS, and assisting photo booths for Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards aren’t mentioned here – and we can assume that it will be discussed in the future. However, there is a lot already covered in 40 Days Of Success – The Interview and fans will be pleased to know that Tran is on the move to complete new releases with this visual update.

What are your thoughts on #40DaysOfSuccess? How long until another 40 more successes are completed would you say for this ambitious film maker?

ART, Formally Trippy T, to Release New Music by 30th Birthday

AReasonableTruth.bandcamp.com

The electro hip-pop singer, rapper, writer with inspirational and motivational lyrics artist Anthony “Rory” Tran is now going by ART which stands not only for his known-by initials, but is the acronym for “A Reasonable Truth”, which has made its debut launch on social media platforms and with the new music page on bandcamp and also @areasonabletruth on IG and @areasonabletrth on Twitter – purposely missing the “U” conveying the message that there is only a reasonable truth with YOU and it’s up to “U” to find it.

40 Days of Success – The Interview coming soon!

“Trippy T was cool and so many people still call me it, like, when we recently shot Master T.C.’s “Gotta Be Free” music video at The Ohio State Reformatory the band and the crew all referred to me as that. I debuted that name in 2011 with our contest entry for Arby’s going with our production company Trippy Tran Films. I’m Trippy Tran. I’m Trippy T. My middle initial is actually T but so many people knew me in the day as Rory that it stuck and it does showcase my personality.

Creepy Finds In Episode 4 of My Vacation In L.A. Season 2 At Ripley’s Museum Hollywood

Episode 4 Ripleys MVILA2 Sunset tag promo poster

When Erin Wilkin, Randy Roy and Anthony “Rory” Tran head for adventure on the west coast, the plan was to contrast and compliment the previous adventures that Alicia, Legend and Rory had experienced in season 1. In the first of a 2-part episode, the distance, drama and weirdness start emerging closer and closer to the end, continuing from some of the energy shown by our lead girl in episode 3: Seal Beach Long Beach 2 and this new episode 4 kicks off with a special message from The Sorting Hat. 

S2, Episode 4 Chapter Titles

– Opening Credits – “Turn This Around”
– L.A. Travels
– Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
– The Tall Man
– The Sorting Hat
– Dinosaurs!
– Musical Stairs
– Cannibal Skull
– Two-Headed Cows

– Episode 5 Hollywood Walk Of Fame Promo

Upon arriving in Hollywood, the doors open with that crazy fountain that never ends and the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! adventure begins SoCal style. From a cannibal skull, musical stairs, mutated animals, a jungle with shrunken heads, strange interactive booths and a fun “The Birth of Film” wheel (Trippy Tran Films fans will be pleased to see), the museum adds a sort of bizarre incline that’s been setting the mood of this season of our docu mini-series.

Last season, the 2-part finale included a horror wax museum and dances with wax celebrities. This time, there is real life “horrors” and weirdness at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Hollywood and amongst the friends themselves. Erin actually told Rory after his phone died that he could use her phone if he didn’t take any video. Well, the agreement was to be in season 2 for them to stay without paying him a dime for lodging and so he did what any filmmaker working on a series would do and shot some footage anyway. Our sources tell us that additional b-roll was filmed later to complete this episode which hits around the 10 minute mark.

The next episode looks to be the drama the fans are all looking for and is slated to premier sometime in October. A weekend plan to Brokechella – a music concert with several stages for only $20 instead of the high prices of Coachella was mentioned and the pals all wanted to go. All but Erin. What will happen in the next episodes of #MVILA2 and will Erin try to have fun or will the trip become sabotaged? Will it come full circle and end in Santa Monica? Keep watching and see if they “Turn This Around” like the theme song performed by Cat Magick.


Also be sure to check out Rory’s recent travels back to Ohio from his snapchat just last week with My Vacay In Ohio 2017 as he raps in the new music video “Gotta Be Free feat. ART”.

New Seal Beach Long Beach 2 Episode of ‘My Vacation In LA’ Is “The Best One Yet” According To Audiences

Happy first official day of summer and you best believe it just got even hotter with the new beach-themed adventure of My Vacation In LA season 2 as the fairweather friends dive into a bright new adventure that has been acclaimed by fans and viewers as “the best episode yet” from this docu mini-series by filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran.

My Vacation In LA - Season 2, Episode 3 promo #MVILA2

Starring Erin Wilkin (Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown) and her honey Randy Roy with San Diego friend Adrianne, the colorful adventure includes classic California drives (with a gorgeous sunset and mountain view), a windy beach adventure, dipping toes in the Pacific Ocean, chasing seagulls, quick conversations and more in OC and LA County.

At this point in the adventure, Erin has landed on the west coast, traveled downtown at The Pike, and has had some tipsy moments (and also some rather bitchy moments) while being filmed. Knowing she had the opportunity to stay at long-term friend Rory’s place for free and in return would be in season 2 and give him Cincinnati favorites like Skyline chili cans, Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce and Grippo’s BBQ chips, she sure started distancing herself from any interaction on camera and it becomes apparent midway through this episode when Rory asks for a sunset photo with her.

Is this is the beginning of the end for season 2? Either way, this episode is filled with surprise and magic. And the birds! – a stellar connection to the original short My Vacation In Cincinnati is amongst the fun.

Several viewers have even voiced their opinion upon the release of this new episode calling it “The best one yet”, “So much fun!” and “Amazing.” What are your favorite moments? #MVILA2

“|Choices| An Interactive Story” Is The New Project by Escape West Films and Trippy Tran Films

Choices - An Interactive Story Teaser Poster - Ian Sideview MirrorWhat if you could change how each character interacted with each other right in front of your eyes? What if the outcome was somehow altered and perspective was at the mercy of your fingertips?

Choices ss Episode 1 Twisted Fates Car promo

There have been several attempts at creating an interactive film story on YouTube, but |Choices| An Interactive Story goes beyond just a game over per wrong choice. Viewers will be altering the whole story as the movie progresses in this new series from Escape West Films and Trippy Tran Films – and the actions are sure to trip you out. The interactive experience puts you, the audience, right in the director’s chair as decisions on where the film goes are in your hands. Strap in, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Is anyone else getting Wreckfest vibes with the above image released for the show? (The driving of two guys rather than two gals this time?!) Though, not having any relation to the multi-genre short film, there is a mobile story game that anyone can play on their mobile devices with Wreckfest – An Interactive Story that’s based on the TTF movie, however, the game itself is a mobile exclusive.

JD and Tiffany - Choices Ep1 Twisted Fates still apt

With |Choices| An Interactive Story planned for DVD and YouTube release, progression and changing the elements are easier for computer users and DVD/Blu-ray users to interact with wherever you are, but on the latter, this experience will not be currently available for mobile devices just yet. The new show is directed by Anthony T. Tran so either way you know that it’s going to be a unique and fun-filled journey.

Episode 2 “DTLB” Takes #MVILA2 On A New Adventure to The Loop 

Now that the season 2 intro is out, it’s time for the tripsters to take an adventure on Ocean Blvd with a psychedelic journey taking us to colorful downtown Long Beach, California – where Tran currently lives – making episode 2 titled “DTLB” an unforgettable experience.


In season 1, our visit to Long Beach included the Aquarium of the Pacific, the Rainbow Harbor tour, and a look at the Queen Mary. This time, it’s nightlife in LB with a visit to The Federal Bar, Rock Bottom Brewery, the Grand Prix fiber optic landmark The Loop and more as Erin enjoys her 4/20 evening in LA County while having a blazin’ good time!

Viewers get to see the Obliquity actress get a little tipsy, similarly to what we saw in season 1 when Alicia, Trippy T and Legend go to Venice Beach. The “liquid courage” takes her and Randy around the beautiful rainbow city, sharing moments that remind us of the original My Vacation In Cincinnati – the short film about a couple who wins tickets to Cincinnati, Ohio – as Erin points out all the unique scenery and even asks to be put on top of The Loop. Daring!

Ashley Hernandez (AKA Ash Nicole) from the My Vacation In LA – Top 10 Countdown season 1 video makes a dashing return for season 2 in this episode and is joined by videographer Anthony “Rory” Tran (AKA Trippy T) as he hosts and records the show again.  Be sure to check out Ashley Hernandez in the web series Mæry Queens.
