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.

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. And then comes conflict from Erin.

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

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.

Top Moments of “MÆRY QUEENS : The Web Series”

Nick is hosting his 35th birthday party in Long Beach, CA with some of his most beloved friends. But not everyone is out for Nick’s best interest, it seems. A threatening message demanding that he put his house up for sale or they’ll kill his kitty cat Hotto and possibly the guests at the party leaves the group shaken and blamin’ as everyone gets an unexpected surprise.

Pointing figures and deciphering the mystery, let’s take a look at some of the best moments that shaped this season into the drama-fest mystery and find out some exclusive behind the scenes juicy info on MÆRY QUEENS : The Web Series (Season 1)

1. The Pilot

Episode 1 “Birthday Queen”

In the pilot, Nick is excited to have his diverse gay pals (plus one thirsty faghag) at his birthday celebration, even though one of his best friends Mario is looking to move back to Columbia. When he opens a box with a film noir-esque magazine cut message inside, he finds out that someone wants him to move far away and will do anything it takes whether it means hurting his only pet, or someone at the party.

Most of the ensemble cast is featured here. Ali Cesur, Daniel Donnie Flores, Alex Correa, Felix Aispuro, Kyle Mosonyi, Ashley Hernandez and Allan Carter. Where is Anthony Moore and Fernando Gonzalez?!

2. The Silver Fox

Episode 3 “Racist Queen”

Not only is this the location of where the show premiered webisodes 1-4 in April 2016, but was also the place used as a flashback scene location for episode 3 and again later in episode 8 “Gossip Queen”.

In these scenes, we learn that they gang used to smoke outside the bar and then that Ian was making out with a stranger while dating Andrew. Could either one be seeking revenge against Nick?

It was fun setting up the two lights we had and hearing people get excited as they drove past watching us on our production. When we hosted the red carpet event here, the show gained more of a following and now marks the spot as one of our official ‘MQ’ landmarks.

3. Closer to Midnight

As each episode progresses, a new hour has occurred until the last episode hits midnight and everything must be in place for the tricky kidnapper to be satisfied. In episode 10, “Family Queen”, Mario talks to his father about his trip to Columbia when he finds out when or if his other friends have come out to their parents. Finding family around is important, but then who would want to hurt the group?

Watch all 12 webisodes of Season 1 this holiday January, 2017

Colombian director Henry Corzo of Corzo Productions has created a quirky over-the-top LGBTQ mystery based in Long Beach, California and not only does it have mouth-watering juicy drama, but also touches on important issues for any sexual orientation with a group of pals. Trippy Tran Films cinematographer and singer/rapper Trippy T, also known as Anthony ‘Rory’ Tran, guest stars and is the Director of Photography. Corzo Productions is bringing a lot to the LB community, even with its risqué themes at times.

Tran also wanting to give back to the community in his new hometown in Long Beach, CA as he did when living in Cincinnati, Ohio, there was no doubt that the collaboration with a “non-West Hollywood” vibe and a more of an “LB” LGBTQ color would have the group making a stand-out comedic and mysterious web series. 

The season finale gets a little steamy! Find out on Mæry Queens! Season finale red carpet premiere December 10th @ Paradise in Long Beach, CA.

Are you a person on the go with the holiday rush? Each episode is only 5-7 minutes long and with a total of 12 episodes this season, you can watch the whole mystery dramedy in a little over an hour if you wish- or simply per webisode.

Mæry Queens Season 1 – (Episodes 1- 10): 


Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown

The sleep deprivation psychological thriller has been in the works for quite some time. Since it’s Director’s Cut premier in 2013 at a private test screening, a theatrical cut has been announced but not complete – until now. An intern from Columbus State has taken over the edit and is working on a new trailer for the release. 

The cut is being prepped for film festival submission, distribution overseas as well as in the U.S. and then the public release. It’s been a process since the project started in 2009, but the feature film is now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. With 27 bands and artists on the soundtrack, a wide range of participants including actors, filmmakers and VFX from its production location in Cincinnati, OH to collaboratives from New York to L.A., Obliquity is going to deliver a mysterious mind-bending trippy world with color, contrast and thrills that will take you on a journey of the psyche. 


We’re excited to announce some new movies and releases for 2017 including the new short The Remnants by director/writer Alex Harris (Denizen), Trippy T’s new music video “SoCal Waves” from the miniseries My Vacation In LA, plus new skits, projects and InPersonNation 2.
