Trippy Tran Films strives to create inspirational, moving and original content. So where has the owner Anthony “Rory” Tran been this last year?
Watch the new lyric video to “GHOST”.
At the beginning of 2022, Tran continued doing Office PA work and ended up help prep and wrap the Squarespace Super Bowl commercial starring Zendaya (HBO’s “Euphoria) and André 3000 from Outkast, directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World). Funny enough, the teams who went to Super Bowl LVI (56) were the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams – so his hometown (Cincy) battled it out with where he’s resided for the last 8 1/2 years (L.A.)
At 21 million views, one of Tran’s biggest accomplishments so far.
Since handing Edgar Wright his storyboards and coffee that day, he had been non-stop working in the commercial world up until his trip back to Ohio where the teams he worked for were working more remote, though, once you’re working commercials, it’s hard to get to the film and TV side.
Just recently, ATran has been working as a PA on a TV show for EarthxTV that resumes filming mid-November, though all these jobs haven’t stopped him from creating. In sound design is the much-anticipated full-length Trippy Tran Films movie Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown and is looking to hopefully enter film festivals fall 2023. ART A Reasonable Truth’s sophomore album is being worked on and the first single just released yesterday on Halloween in time for spooky season called “Ghost” with a music video to arrive sometime this month.
You can download “Ghost” at http://areasonabletruth.bandcamp.com which includes also the instrumental and a capella as it gets ready to hit all major streaming platforms sometime this week.
The IDGA$ Talk Show, sketch comedies, final episode of Choices: An Interactive Story “Twisted Fates” are all still looking to also come out early 2023. There’s also plans for our 10th short film, a slasher along the lines of Scream but with an original spin, the InPersonNation sequel, and new music videos are in pre-production.
The Tran Man is also on a new podcast The Business Revolution to come out soon and is working to expand Trippy Tran Films, LLC so in 5 years or less, the goal is for him to be directing big budget Hollywood movies also.
Our services include weddings, commercials, photography and film making, recording sessions, voice over work, video editing and in partner with Lexico Fashion, wardrobe.

The hip-hop contemporary rap jam #notawrapper was created in 2020 before the global pandemic and has been called Trippy T aka ART A Reasonable Truth’s best song yet as it includes heavy bass, a catchy chorus and a play on words with lyrics about being both a rapper and a wrapper.
The music video just dropped today, which features over 60 people showing some of their own talents from breakdancing, stripping, spinning fire, plus a lot more fun surprises. Just make sure to blast the bass while listening.
The music video, takes it to a whole new level, featuring talents from Los Angeles to Cincinnati, OH and beyond and it actually features some talented rappers like Kevy G, Adam Glevicky and Anthony Catanzarite who show their support for Anthony “Rory” Tran’s latest single. A sexy maid, a dojo stick spinner, poi spinning, goths, grandma, a gift for yo mama and more are all included in this colorful compilation as Truth’s style is shown with a hot red Honda R-Type car.
Anthony T. Tran has been working in Hollywood a lot more this year which included projects to help with Willow, Dua Lipa, Christopher Mintz-Plasse from Superbad, and many more talents and commercial work.
With the surge of Covid-19 and the new Delta Variant virus, it has been hard to want to update or showcase all the hard work that’s been happening behind the scenes. Trippy Tran Films has a lot more projects coming up and hope that we will be able to share them sooner than later. Keep it locked in with all of our projects at the links below.
(2021) A Trippy Tran Films Production ART A Reasonable Truth — “(W)Rapper” (Official Music Video)
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 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.
Be sure to also check out our new show | Choices | An Interactive Story – a choice-based interactive short live-action video with 4 episodes coming in beta form with episode 1 tomorrow!

Celebrating 3 years in Los Angeles after moving from Cincinnati, OH (yes, thats where Steven Spielberg is from, where Kroger is a grocery store and the birth of the first national baseball team was signed: Redlegs), the Trippy Tran Man is now in California making moves and a new visual photo art book is now available to showcase all the hard work and adventure. From our own original content to working on several more series’ plus, a look at the new promotional music of ART A Reasonable Truth aka Trippy T, the photo book is as vivid as it is informative and limited quantities are hitting the market.

Tran is even convinced after creating the first major community film project in Cincinnati Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknownthat it brought Hollywood production companies to the city – interested in filming there after doing so much with his team since 2008.

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.
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?
Comment your thoughts below and follow us (and Tran) on social media.

The sequel docu miniseries spin-off to My Vacation In Cincinnatigoes beyond what season 1 of last year’s My Vacation In LAhad with even more drama, travels, comedy and more plus, mentions of Erin’s role in Trippy Tran Films’ debut feature film coming soon. And it premiers exactly a year after the travels took place here on April 20th.

Dreamers follow an unwritten journey leading them up different winding paths, opportunities and experiences as each passing day comes to light. Though, some believe everything is destined to happen, we continue to strive for collaboration, endurance, confidence and achievement to reach and make these goals. Sharing this unique experience we call life can be rewarding and even disappointing at times, but as we hold onto our inspiration and faith, we find that anything is possible.
As owner, director, producer and writer amongst many other roles (cinematographer, singer/rapper, editor, production assistant, etc.) for Trippy Tran Films and other production companies, I have been continuing the dream and doing my best to complete some of our projects in the balance. Our goal still includes releasing our feature film debut Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknownto festivals and audiences worldwide.
I’ve always been open to joining forces with other people in the entertainment industry and our love for creating and connecting will only continue to expand. (We encourage everyone to never lose sight of what they want in life!) Here are some of my own biggest feats, a new entry showcasing 40 Days of Success and determination up to this point in my life. Check back for new entries starting March 1, 2017. Believe in yourself. Believe in others.
– Anthony T. Tran
Trippy Tran Films, LLC.
Day 1 – New Music from Trippy T
True artists are always making music whether it’s publicly released, finalized or not. This image is taken from the photo shoot on location of my new music video TBA (shhh! – details yet to be revealed!) There are a lot of surprises with the new songs and the upcoming Centerpiece EP. Working with celebrity model photographer Chris Anthony of CXL Photography fall 2016 was refreshing. I felt as I could really be myself in this video, now having lived in Los Angeles for almost 3 years and loving the SoCal atmosphere.
Day 2 – Co-Producer and Cameo Role in Sovereign Entertainment’s Devil’s Point
Throwback to the club scene in the new movie Devil’s Point that I co-produced and made a cameo in with these lovely stars of the film (Alexander Sedlak and Kait Stay). It’s been since 2011, but great things take time. We hope you can’t wait to see this supernatural horror from Sovereign Entertainment and Trippy Tran Films!
Day 3 – Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards Post Party Staff (2015-?)
Working Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports Awards Post Party Event 2015 & 2016.
Growing up watching Nickelodeon myself, it brought me joy to pump up the youth for their photo op and was in overall exciting to be part of such an exclusive event for a second year in a row.
In 2016, I was teamed up with the basketball photo booth guys and helped kids and families get their star photo moment with their print used as the backboard for a mini-bball hoop and was also given my own hoop.
In 1 week, the Kids’ Choice Awards will be hosted and airing March 10, 2017 on Nickelodeon.
Day 4 – Director of Photography on Long Beach, CA web series MÆRY QUEENS
Maery Queens – Long Beach with Anthony T. Tran as director of photography.
Working with the cast of Mæry Queens as official Director of Photography on season 1 (available to watch for free) where I worked with MTV Brasil actor Anthony Moore (Malady,Into the Shadows), Kyle Mosonyi (“Gone” Music Video) and Ashley Hernandez (My Vacation In L.A. – Top 10 Countdown) and of course the rest of the stellar cast involved.
Production took place throughout the month of August 2015 and the first 4 webisodes premiered in April 2016 with a red carpet premier at one of the filming locations: The Silver Fox. I used facebook Live during the event highlighting some of the star moments, interviews with most of the cast and even spoke on stage in front of the audience.
I became so passionate about this project that I ended up writing additional segments to the show with solo confessionals with each character in between episodes that started after episode 4. It also marked my first major role debut in Long Beach and first cinematography role in Los Angeles County.
Day 5 – COEXIST wins Audience Choice award for CMF 2009 in Greater Cincinnati
Winning our first movie award in the city for our horror short COEXIST and pictured with legendary synth-funk group Midnight Star’s Bill Simmons who was also one of my instructors.
In my final project in college at Brown Mackie Cincinnati, I had already directed 3 original shorts and several other music video projects, etc. Before #ObliquityMovie was started, this was the film that encouraged me to continue following my passion as we won an Audience Choice Award for a horror film in 2009! If anyone remembers that Era, horror films were coming out left and right and it was hard to find anything original. To this day COEXIST by @trippytranfilms remains bold, thought-provoking and unique.
Day 6 – Assistant National Contest Admin for iHeartRadio contests & Clear Channel Media + Entertainment (2011-2014)
Hired at Clear Channel Media & Entertainment AKA #iHeartRadio for 3 years with 3 different job titles for radio nation.
In the birthplace of radio, Cincinnati, OH I had a good friend who saw my passion and ambition for working in entertainment. In 2011, I was hired to run national contests including giving away $1000 more than 5 times a day as well as trips to the iHeartRadio Music Festival in #LasVegas, plus, exclusively with my boss ran the private show #contest for the Justin Timberlake 20/20 Experience debut and Miami and L.A. shows and pool parties with America’s top artists.
I then was hired for commercial dubbing then music in production tech. I trained and worked with original members of Blessid Union of Souls I left the job to pursue my film endeavors in #California. Here I’m pictured with KISS 107 FM host Jare E. J and WEBN legend Shroom. Also pictured is the UK’s Morning Parade and Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups in the Coke Lounge. Both great guys to be studio neighbors with. For fun, you can hear my radio voice in our short film #MyVacationInCincinnati
It’s not been the same since and I do miss the main jobs I had, especially sending people to big festivals and hearing their excitement when awarding them. The festival played live yesterday on broadcast television.
Day 7 – 27 Bands and Artists on our upcoming film debut Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown
You may not be able to see all 27 bands and artists in this collage, but when we started our feature film debut, we never imagined networking with over 100 bands and artists talking submission, free posters that we’d provide to promote, and even some of the leading acts making a cameo appearance in the film. We ended up collaborating with over 150 people nationwide. Obliquity is a film that drew people in for having a positive outreach, wanting to unite several talents with the idea of us all promoting each other. A true collaboration – especially on the indie front.
When I was 21, I began another attempt at making a feature (my first was when I was 16 for an outrageous parody film The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever) after COEXIST had taken an audience award voted on by college students: the upcoming generation. I created a film that I wanted to resonate with people that went beyond some of the garbage that Hollywood was putting out by making a movie that spoke to the human soul with ideals to open people’s minds and showcase undiscovered talent (some that were well on their way) by bringing forth a colorful connection.
You can check out a list of bands and artists here and on IMDB for a full list of songs and names. The movie track “Obliquity” by ALTERED premiered on WEBN 102.7FM Greater Cincinnati local radio. Two music videos have been made so far for our upcoming psychological thriller including “Empty Minds” by punk rock band Killer Looks and Noise. Check out the work from affiliated bands & artists on our soundtrack and let us know your favorite tracks in the comments section.
Day 8 – Official Videographer/Editor – Project SpARCH (STEM) Fundraiser
SpARCHing a new change in our community and across the nation.
Continuing the journey in Ohio back in 2012, I was asked to help bridge the connection between the University of Cincinnati and Hughes High School by filming a crowd-funding video that would kick off the STEM program where college students mentored high school students for their next stages in life in their field by creating an academic bridge. Advocate David Mierke approached me about collaborating, and after a successful meeting, I asked Josh Luckett of EZ World Entertainment to assist me on the production that would soon start a positive spark in education.
The two of us worked with Dave and Jenna as well as the principal of Hughes High and the director of SAID/DAAP teachers. We recorded a variety of students showcasing their skills regarding architecture and design, math and science as well as their excitement for the program. After the video was featured on indiegogo and facebook, STEM ended up coming to fruition by gaining national attention from Washington D.C. and broadcasts on network news.
New Long Beach Gay Web Series
Coming Spring 2016
A 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.

Fundraiser kickoff 7/27/15
There is a lot in store for the filming of the project and like any film set, anything can happen.
Daniel Donnie Flores plays Ian in MÆRY Queens and gives us a little sneak peek.
Anthony Tran assures us he has been working really hard on MÆRY Queens and can’t wait to show you what’s in store!
Now as the Director of Photography also abbreviated as DP or DoP (that’s dope without the ‘e’ that’s how dope the DoP role is), we anticipate the October release and wish Corzo, Tran and team with the project.
MÆRY Queens wraps production today, 8/30/2015.
CALLING ALL MUSICIANS:
Music is being prepared for the series. We are looking for fun pop, dance, electro, rap, hiphop, alternative, ambient and more to fit with these characters and this series.
Interested musicians, bands, artists, composers, etc. can submit by emailing TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com
For more dope content, check out Tran’s “Leatherware” radio spot he made in college for audio class. Tran wrote, mixed and even did voice over announcer work with the help of 3 friends; they gave testimonials for this fun made-up radio commercial exclusively here! Leatherware! Where it’s at!
Maery Queens has now been postponed for a Spring 2016 release. Follow the page on facebook for more info.

We hate to be the one to bring the news that actor Chris Corman unfortunately passed away last week. Director Anthony Tran received the news from Corman’s friend and co-star Amanda Eichelberger from My Vacation In Cincinnati the morning of this devastating loss.
We want to send our condolences and our prayers to Christopher Corman’s family, friends and co-stars who worked closely with Chris and knew what an uplifting, kind spirit he was with strong qualities including dedication, passion, persistence and loyalty.
He always made us laugh on set of both Trippy Tran Films movies (Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown being the big one which is planned for finalizations soon) and was one of the most dedicated persons Tran has worked with to-date.
Follow us at facebook.com/obliquitymovie
Chris Corman stars as Chaz Seraphim Hunter in Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown, an archangel personified “hunter” of answers and truth in a chaotic world.
Chris Corman was without a doubt the band No Doubt’s biggest fan and even moreso of Gwen Stefani. His dream came true when she called him on stage and he got to do a dance with her in front of thousands of people including taking a selfie together. The video can be seen below.
We are trying to reach out to Gwen’s publicist and managers about the loss of Mr. Corman and see if she’d be up to seeing his starring debut feature film role in Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown. If anyone knows how we can get a hold of her, please, let us know or email us at TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com
With great sorrow, we hope the best for all the lives he’s touched so he can be remembered. We know his memory will shine on through his work.
R.I.P. Chris Corman
You were a beautiful friend and a unique and charismatic actor who always shined.

Friends of Chris wanted Tran to know what he said to them about him and his work via facebook.
Aaron E. wrote:
“Thank you for everything you did for him Anthony. Chris cherished you a lot. He told me you were one of his best friends of all time.”
Melissa S. wrote:
“Also know that Chris spoke very highly of you and enjoyed working with you immensely.”
Anthony Tran wrote:
It’s heartbreaking to hear that the joy and enthusiasm and dedication of Christopher Corman will no longer light up the room. I was his director on several projects including our feature film debut Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown which is still seeking postproduction help. We did get to premier it at the end of 2013 and he did get to see his big screen debut in the theater so I’m happy he got to have yet another shining moment. He also starred in our 48 Hour Film project My Vacation In Cincinnati and always made people laugh.
To all his friends and family, I have tons of footage with Mr. Corman, a lot hasn’t been released yet. If anybody needs anything for his funeral, please let me know. I reside in Long Beach, CA where Chris and I talked about moving near there.. well Anaheim. Sadly, it never happened. We will honor and remember this unique soul and I hope when we release the feature film that we can remember him in a beautiful way for his passion and hard work as well as being such a fun guy to be around. Fly in the sky friend. You left too soon.
R.I.P Christopher Corman
You made us laugh and think like no other.

Videos of Chris Corman can be found all over YouTube.com/TrippyTranFilms including bloopers, behind the scenes, his character promos for his role as Chaz and more.
Read his obituary here and more info here. Fly in the sky and may you find inner peace, Mr. Corman.
We also want to say that if anyone you know needs any mental, drug-related or health help in any way, to go and seek it. You are not alone. Don’t ever assume that a little isn’t ever too much.
