Celebrate ART A Reasonable Truth’s Birthday & Black History Month – “The Recipe ft. Ayem” Music Video

Happy Birthday Anthony ‘Rory’ Tran aka ART A Reasonable Truth who just released his new music video, second single to Centerpiece called “The Recipe ft. Ayem”. Although the subject matter doesn’t really have to do with food per se, the video itself showcases lyrical undertones of one being such a “recipe”, one of the more parallel coorelations to the concept album as it showcases a look at our world with catatonic behavior. Featuring Ayem with a sick verse, we also celebrate Black History Month with our team.

Get the single on iTunes, Google PLAY, Amazon, Bandcamp and more!

In the video, ART states that a lot of medical issues happened to him while on this journey to the point of a sleep study. Scientists are shown taking samples of him and building “versions” of him to control as their own “recipes” and brainwashing them to adhere to technology.

The idea has similar relation to Anthony Tran’s latest short film QK-Hilltop (coming very soon) that deals with real-life government experiments in the 1950’s.

What do you think of the new hip-pop video and song for 2019? Here is also a behind the scenes look at filming it via the rory-man’s snapchat story.

Support local and independent artists and be the recipe yourself! ART says he plans on starting performance runs this year. For his next music video “Get Down With It!” we are looking for extras and dancers. Email AReasonableTruth@gmail.com with picture and why and how you want to be involved.

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.

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!

ART A Reasonable Truth Premiers “SoCal Waves” as New Single With Upcoming Music Video

It’s about that time! Summer is in the air and the ‘Centerpiece’ has released another anthem, this time, showcasing beach and west coast vibes by the ocean that will take you away on a vacation. “SoCal Waves” originally premiered in February 2016 with the My Vacation In LA season 1 finale in a demo form.

ART A Reasonable Truth produced an album with Grammy board and multi-million dollar studio-taught mix and master Wendy Levin of D.M. Gremlin Studios with an instrumental by Billy Burton; the collaboration and oceanic sounds are dreamy and chillular.

Listen to “SoCal Waves”

After releasing 3 singles prior including “Centerpiece”, “Get Down With It!” and “Ready”, “SoCal Waves” is planned to be the first music video of a visual album, but unlike artists like Beyoncè and Todrick Hall who release it all at once, the “Trippy Tran Man” plans to release the videos out of order and at different times before all the pieces of the ‘Centerpiece’ concept is complete. Trippy.

Filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran on ‘Let’s Make A Deal’ Game Show the Day After Wayne Brady Wins Emmy

Director/Producer Anthony T. Tran

Welcome to the first day of May! Today, we have a mini-interview with Anthony “Rory” Tran, director/producer/writer of Trippy Tran Films, LLC. who also just released a debut pop/hip-hop/electro album under the name ART A Reasonable Truth.

Trippy T just made his TV network game show debut on Let’s Make A Deal hosted by Wayne Brady on CBS yesterday on 4/30/18 being the first episode to air after Mr. Brady took home an Emmy for best Game Show host. Talk about epic timing!

Watch the episode here: https://www.cbs.com/shows/lets_make_a_deal/video/f_YwUZ74_UBF26PWmF2YwZR4CVqrCLhJ/let-s-make-a-deal-4-30-2018/

Costume: Gladiator. Anthony Tran and Wayne Brady on CBS.

What was it like being called to play?

It was a rush! Knowing that once you’re called, you have to make your entrance down those stairs, grab the good luck from the people waving at you and then talk to someone you’ve grown up watching and laughing to (Wayne Brady; Whose Line Is It Anyway?), it was completely surreal. I still can’t believe it happened and I’ve seen it on the boob tube with my own eyes!

You recently had surgery?

Yes, I had Lasik eye surgery done just a few weeks prior. My right eye, which still is bothering me with only 10 feet of clarity in it, felt bruised and I was hoping after that I could still make the taping when I had audience tickets.

Have you seen this game ‘CA$H COUNTRY’ be played before?

Nope! And that’s even after all the episodes I have watched… so I don’t know if it was new, but it sure was new to me. When I was up there, my senses were all over the place because you want to show respect and kindness and also make quick decisions as people are shouting and telling you to do things. It’s nuts! In the end you have to go with your gut instinct.

I picked Tiffany because her face was on California where I have been for 4 years now and her name is also the same name as the main character of our short film Duality which later became Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown. So Tiffany it was for me, though now looking back, I maybe should have showed Ohio and Cat some love. It’s still awesome that I traveled across the country and it’s officially represented here on national television.

What was it like to see the prize you missed?

It was a really great prize and though I’ve been on a yacht every year for New Year’s these past 2 years, those sunglasses looked amazing and it sounded like a fun time. I just knew after paying for Lasik payments and producing my album and upcoming film works, that taking the money was the way to go, no matter how small. And it was a cool amount. I’m so fortunate to have been able to play with the #LMAD team! Wayne, Jonathan, Tiffany, Cat, Chris – everyone was so amazing.

Wayne Brady just won an Emmy for “Let’s Make A Deal” and the day after, your episode airs. Everyone is watching in the industry. How do you feel?

Funny thing is, I was driving to visit my friend Joe in Apple Valley (in the high desert) and a truck passed me with a map of the United States on it around the time the Emmys were airing. I felt a sense of something and forgot about it being scheduled to air the next day on the 30th of April since it was actually shot last September.

It feels legendary to be the last new contestant the day after everyone is talking about it and watching it. I hope someone out there is willing to take a chance with our team and help us achieve the goals we want with our films, music, media and art. Otherwise, we will continue to make our mark with Trippy Tran Films.

Okay guys, what did you think of the episode? Comment below and be sure to connect with us for updates to see when Wayne Brady will be in our next big movie like he said on national television. 🏆

ART Premieres Hip-Hop Anthem “Ready”

When a tracks bangs such an anthem that could easily hype any sports event, be a song for going out – or even chillen, and just relating to being ready for whatever comes next, this “j-amthem” will make you want to hit that repeat button and the vocals will indefinitely get stuck in your head.

In contrast to the previous 2 singles released by ART A Reasonable Truth so far, “Ready” is a bouncy hip-hop jam with such flare and pizzazz that it stands out with a self-confidence motivational message:

“Check your back, I’ll attack/Yeah I’m ready for it/From the bottom to the top/Yeah I’m ready for it/When you know what you do/Yeah I’m ready for it/Yeah – ‘Cause I’m ready for it”

Artist Anthony Rory Tran is ready to show the world what he can do with music and talent with another banger by Aaron Byrd – the man behind the beat of the “Centerpiece”single. Tran surprisingly let the mix into an Instagram advertised mixing house in New York for this track in particular wanting to collaborate with different engineers on the album for a sense of diversity. The track was mastered in Long Beach by D.M. Gremlin Studios who also worked on a majority of the tracks for the debut album Centerpiece – which is coming to all music major platforms February 9, 2018.

“Ready for something bigger than you can see/Something that can take you and believe”

Is this the new 2K18 banger? Comment your thoughts below and be sure to let everyone know – who’s ready.
