OBLIQUITY Track Premiers on Cincinnati Rock’s 102.7FM WEBN on Native Noise w/ Shroom Tonight

Tonight on Cincinnati’s rock station 102.7 WEBN on Native Noise at 11pm ET – a radio rock show dedicated to bringing local rock artists on the air, Shroom and Nudge will be playing the self-titled movie track ‘Obliquity’ by hard rockers Altered. The song was written for our debut feature film of the same name.

After working 3 years in radio at Clear Channel aka iHeartRadio, director/writer Anthony Tran moved to southern California to pursue film and finalize the theatrical cut of Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown and the Trippy Tran Films Shorts Collection. When the movie was being made, we knew we had to have a killer soundtrack.

Hard rock band ALTERED was excited about the project and began writing and recording the soundtrack-themed title hit ‘Obliquity’ (available on iTunes). The result became an obscure, bellowing, cry through the chaos where both Meyers Cage and Brandon Rubenoff roar “I scream out loud: Obliquity!”Team Roster Production Stills and BTS

New ‘Green Clips’ Behind-The-Scenes Video Motifs featuring Killer Looks and Noise, ALTERED and Trippy T

Trippy Tran Films - STAR LOGO HiResWe’ve all seen those bonus features that show us the behind the scenes of our favorite videos and it’s no surprise that Trippy Tran Films is avid about releasing extra material to give to fans – and also respectively to the cast and crew that put their blood, sweat and tears into making community film productions, especially in the beginning stages of our legacy in Cincinnati, OH.

This past summer, for the first time ever we released raw, unedited, uncut recordings of us working on our various productions that we are going to call Green Clips – ‘green’ meaning fresh and new since this hasn’t necessarily been done before, a term also used in the industry.

Get Ready to Jam Out! Director's Cut available to rent or buy at https://www.indiereign.com/video/my-vacation-in-cincinnatiGet Ready to Jam Out! Check out the Director’s Cut to My Vacation In Cincinnati available to rent or buy at https://www.indiereign.com/video/my-vacation-in-cincinnati

The reason we are doing ‘Green Clips’ is because first off, a lack of compatibility between the Sony Handycam we taped with and the editing system made it impossible for us to work with. (Remember folks: we are still independent and are looking to raise money for our many projects. Consider donating!) Secondly, using YouTube to host a series of video clips that show everything that happened from when the camera rolls until the operator cuts showcases the realism of the project. That’s not saying we uploaded every little clip ever for these motifs because we made sure to keep it as interesting as possible without wasting time and still maintaining the integrity of the original projects. (New videos below!)

See for yourself or skip around the various Green Clips, or GC, in the playlist. The titles and thumbnails should help one find a flavor that may be entertain. GC runtimes range anywhere from 15 seconds to over 5 minutes per video. Let’s take a look at the releases for this.

KILLER LOOKS AND NOISE – Empty Minds (Music Video)
Searching for the right Obliquity music while showcasing Greater Cincinnati Area and beyond bands and music talents was not an easy endeavor. Tran talked to many musicians who, when simply put, was not in it to win it, but when we found the 26 talented artists that signed to our debut feature, we knew we had to do a couple music videos.

The first band who was completely down is contemporary punk rockers Killer Looks and Noise. Director Anthony Tran worked with Daniel Kamphaus, Tyler Stroup (Wreckfest), Phillip Russo (who hosted premier parties and the location of our film My Vacation In Cincinnati – which is also locale in this), and a few others including the band to complete this video shot in a day. See the mayhem and fun of some of the making of shoot.

ALTERED – Obliquity (Making of the Track)

Hard rockers ALTERED approached Tran about making a song for our debut feature film, Obliquity and ended up making a title track with the same name. The heavy melodic tune ‘Obliquity’ is also available to buy on iTunes. See the process of them making the song in the recording studio exclusively in this playlist.

TRIPPY T – Unfreeze (2012)/Shimmer of Longing (Music Video)

Planned and released the day the Mayan Calendar ended (December 21, 2012) and for a competition, ‘2012/Shimmer’ became a recognized video. Working on music with composer Michail Sinenko AKA Sonanze, Trippy T (Anthony Rory Tran’s current artist name) knew a music video had to be done. He pulled a team of people to come together for various shoots including the college he received his Associates degree in Audio/Video Technology, Newport on the Levee and other locations. His 2012 debut music video put him in the spotlight after being behind the camera.

Guest director Josh Gerrety came on board from Eazy World Entertainment to guide Trippy T with the help of Christopher Wesley of Sovereign Entertainment, DP Charles Pierson, Key Grip James Willis and Wreckfest’s Selena Klaphake and Tyler Stroup with many more amazing people came to help that day. Lauren Stinson was the VFX editor. The video was made for a week competition and had mixed reviews. The powerful message seemed to not sit well with Internet trolls, but still remains to be a unique representation of of the Obliquity soundtrack.

OBLIQUITY: IMAGERY OF THE UNKNOWN
Over 100 clips have made it to this playlist on the YouTube.com/TrippyTranFilms channel.

We start in 2011, two years after the project, but then backtrack to look at cell phone recorded videos from 2009 and then go to more “HD” Handycam footage (we put quotes on HD because Sony, that is not true HD!) From creepy hallway scenes, free Chipotlé on set, never-before-seen interviews, shooting the sequel tie-ins to DUALITY at Sharon Woods, our beloved friend and actor Chris Corman who plays Chaz, plus the final day of filming, voice overs, photo shoots and more are all here. That’s not saying we revealed many spoilers here, so you’re (mostly) safe with that, but it does showcase locations. We plan on releasing more GC after the film is publicly released.

Psych Thriller ‘Obliquity’ Whets Appetite with New Behind-The-Scenes Clips

The anticipated debut feature with the tagline “More Than The Eye Can See” from Trippy Tran Films and Sovereign Entertainment has recently released (mostly) spoiler-free Behind-The-Scenes segments on YouTube.com/TrippyTranFilms – be sure to subscribe as new videos will be added. The journey shows tie-ins to Tran’s original short “Duality” with glimpses at some of the surprises in store for the upcoming full-length independent psych thriller Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown.

(watch the new behind-the-scenes adventure here):

The video clips include previously unreleased interviews, insight on the lives and thoughts of the cast and crew, waiting in the rain for location clearance, flat tires, getting lost, favorite film parts, the mishaps and the accomplishments, plus, the director himself in action giving viewers a chance to see what it really took for us to make this community-oriented full-length indie film in the Greater Cincinnati Area.

Tran also mentions future releases in the playlist are going to include bands from the Obliquity soundtrack performing live, photo shoots with all the actors for the movie poster, the original cast (recorded with old school cell phones), rehearsing, voice overs and a First-Look at the band ALTERED in the recording studio performing the song they wrote for our film – also entitled “Obliquity”. (Playlist link is above – with 34 clips currently.) We will update the playlist weekly until we run out – and that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Now when viewing the clips, you may notice that they are completely unedited video segments recorded per clip. Due to it being filmed off of a Sony Handycam (that Chris Hicks gave Tran in 2011) we found it to be incompatible with the MacBook used for handling the movie’s files while editing on Final Cut Pro. When we tried to view the file, there was no audio. We decided to give you the raw recordings as part of the experience because of that.

Teaser promo for the director’s cut test screen release which premiered December 2013.

By uploading each video to YouTube, audio and video then became readily available. The behind-the-scenes preview is here to ‘wet your thirst’ for more as we prepare finalizing postproduction of the film this year. New videos will be uploaded to the playlist periodically.
