Anthony Tran and Dustin James Discuss “Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown” Delay on “My Ex-BFF Court”

Thursday today, if you own the Snapchat app, you can search the Discover page for “My Ex-BFF Court” and see Anthony ‘Rory’ Tran (ART A Reasonable Truth) and Dustin James (Cat Magick) as they go to “pretend” court over a matter of film making and friendship in season 1 episode 12 of the new show by Snapchat TV and Vertical Networks.

The preview:

The premise is simple. Tran began production on Trippy Tran Films’ debut feature film project Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown in 2009, shooting 1 scene and finishing the script. It took until 2012 to complete production due to actors quitting, 3 re-writes and also to help co-produce with writer/producer Christopher Wesley on his supernatural thriller feature Devil’s Point. A lot of things happened during that process and eventually in winter of 2013, the movie premiered as a 2 1/2 hour cut in a local theater selling almost 100 tickets in 1 night.

When Tran was asked to go on a fun court show where we got to bring back a former actor and best friend who quit the project, he sent out real facebook message screen shots and more to the production co. Vertical Networks to talk about what really happened.

Watch the 12th episode of Season 1:

From side characters like Titney Spears to the character Dustin was meant to originally play: Dane Hollywood, My Ex-BFF Court will showcase the drama, the truth and the reality of what happened but also in the form of entertainment as this is technically reality television.

The reality TV truth:

What are your thoughts? Do you think the show was fair to both sides without even knowing the whole story? Who should have won the case?

Trippy Tran Films is looking for a solid feature sound designer for our 1hr45min cut of this film so we can get it out by next year. You can help donate via Paypal @trippytran or message us at TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com if you or someone you know has reasonable rates on sound design and audio mixing/mastering.

New Web Series ‘MÆRY QUEENS’ Hires Anthony T. Tran for Director of Photography

MÆRY QUEENS
New Long Beach Gay Web Series
Coming Spring 2016

MÆRY Queens castA set of diverse gay friendships are put to the test when a threat to kill the host’s cat surfaces at an otherwise fun birthday party. Get ready for the new dramedy mystery MÆRY Queens.

Chance happens only so many wonderful times in our lives and for an uprising career path in a cut throat industry, it can be a difficult endeavor for a newcomer to Los Angeles. There’s Hollywood, Studio City, Burbank, dozens of beaches, atmosphere, celebrities that breathe the air (and the money) with no surprise running into someone famous in the Greater L.A. Area.

In June 2015, Anthony Rory Tran and Keithopher Webb went to Long Beach pride and it wasn’t until the next morning that Keithopher handed him a card he received at the festival. Being an aspiring actor and film maker, A. Tran decided to email them, mentioning his work under singer/songwriter/rapper name Trippy T and mentioned his connects with other talent that could be interested in submitting and collaborating to the series.

Soon after, Anthony received an email and was asked to audition for the roles of Ian and Dustin. He met with the director Henry Corzo and shared with him his ties on making a national community film project back in Cincinnati, OH. Henry then called him back a week later to help film an audition with Kyle Mosonyi and Alex Correa in Long Beach, CA.

It was a couple weeks later when Tran saw his name highlighted and thought that he had also been cast. Sharing videos before auditions, at the end of the day Corzo asked him to become the Director of Photography of this project. Jobs for a DP include running camera, directing the overall quality and uniqueness to the look of the film (Mæry Queens), choosing depth, frame rates, lighting, rigs and more. Humbly honored, Tran took the position.
