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.

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 Club Song “Get Down With It!”

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! The new club banger by ART is sure to make lovers of dance music go wild as we bring in 2K18 with “Get Down With It!” Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to get down with it!

Stream/Download “Get Down With It!”

The instrumental beat is produced by Sonanze and has “Centerpiece” singer ART on the track laying some dirty vocals chanting:

“Get down with an altered feeling/It comes and goes on/Get down with a “won’t-stop” feeling/I know I can lose control/Get down with a monster feeling/Get down and let it go/When we begin the chain/You gotta get down on the dance floor!” 

“Get Down With It!” is a party anthem for those who like high energy dance tracks with smooth breakdowns and wild sounds that you can’t help but jump up and down to. I mean, at least my friends and I can’t stop listening. And we like “Centerpiece” but damn – this may be even better. It’s that good. 

A Reasonable Truth AKA Anthony “Rory” Tran has worked with (and plans on working with more on the an already planned second album) musician Sonanze AKA Mikhail Sinenko on this EDM anthem who also created the music tracks to “Unfreeze (2012)” and “Shimmer Of Longing” amongst many others – unlike the recent release of “Centerpiece” who was made by beatmaker A-Rhyme also known as Aaron Byrd.

ART Premieres New Single “Centerpiece”

The new single just dropped – and it went right down your chimney. Happy holidays! With the current state of pop music, just like the film industry, there’s been a lot of hit and misses with overplayed reboots and lackluster content (and lyrics) that seems to cater to the American dollar rather than the beauty and craft of art with the real gems lying in the underground. A new surprise has arrived: introducing ART.

Play and get the new single “Centerpiece”.

Here at Trippy Tran Films, we believe in inspiring, motivating and making positive moves in mainstream media. We are pleased to present the new single from singer, rapper, lyricist, multi-genre artist Anthony Rory Tran who goes by the name of ART – which also stands for A Reasonable Truth, and has originally released music under the pseudonym Trippy T

Fans of pop, hip-hop, cruising-style, electronic infused music will be pleased to know a song called “Centerpiece”  is a life-jam calling everyone a centerpiece with lyrics: “Look now you’re the centerpiece/Saying everybody get like me”.

ART’s debut album CENTERPIECE is set for an early 2018 release and will have 11 original songs.

The music industry is mentioned in verse 2: “Octacables wrapped around me like a label/When it takes hold own the heart and let go” stating that octopus tentacles acting as cables can hold the ‘centerpiece’ tight and you may even go to the degree of interpreting those lyrics as people being constricted by the idea of money rather than the craft.


ART’s debut album of the same name is set to drop early 2018 with more singles to be released. What are your thoughts on “Centerpiece” as a new hit song? ART will also be featured on the new Master T.C. and the Visitors “Gotta Be Free” video set to drop in January. Hear that song here.

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

MÆRY QUEENS Teaser Trailer + “Caged Animals” Premiers

In August 2015, the new web series Mæry Queens was filmed and now, not even a year later, we have the first trailer. Whether you want to spell or call it Mary Queens, Maery Queens or connect that “A” and “E” together for the Columbian spelling of the series created by Corzo Productions, you can find the debut of this inventive new show on April 30th of this year. Watch the trailer below.

So where and when did it premier? Last night, Eddie Jelinet had an artist event premiering his latest music video release “Caged Animals” and had an an amazing turnout with special guests including his iconic “red rose man” (does he have a name or is he a representation of everyone?) as he played violin that transitioned with a “caged animal” spirit and even had a true full-blooded Native American on the stage. It was a world of color and heart that only the people in that room got to experience at Sevilla Nightclub in Long Beach, California.

See Eddie Jelinet’s music video trailer and art video below.

Afterwards, the cast and crew of Maery Queens went on stage and the trailer debuted. Actors that made an appearance at the event include the fabulous Ash Nicole (who is featured in the “My Vacation In LA” Long Beach promo and plays Rachel in MQ), Anthony Moore from MTV Brazil (who plays the best friend Andrew), Felix Aispuro (who plays the Columbian hearthrob Mario) and Alex Correa (who plays the quirky and hot-tempered LB native Jośe).
