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).

Cincinnati Zombie Walk Videos Feature Crazy Special FX and a Badass Nemesis Replica

Trippy Tran Films - STAR LOGO HiRes

Put on your Halloween hats and take a walk with zombies in our latest ‘green clips’ Cincinnati Zombie Walk 2012 motif. And let’s be honest here: Times have changed and people still can’t get enough of zombies! So much to the point where it seems to be a favorite amongst several Generation X.

Tran and Elvira _Cincy Zombie Walk 2012

Whether you love the blood, gore, pretending you’re dead, the amazing (or silly) makeup effects, or maybe you are annoyed that people are literally becoming zombies in our society. Well one things for sure,  you can’t deny a Zombie Walk isn’t super badass and this one in Cincinnati, OH features Resident Evil favorite baddie Nemesis with giant guns and a group of the S.T.A.R.S. – a team of people who base their life to destroy zombies (no joke!) as they fight them off at Fountain Square!

Adults and children alike enjoy the excitement of going around historic downtown Cincinnati – birthplace of Steven Spielberg and where movies such as Ides of March, James Franco and Mariah Carey have made directorial marks, plus that is where founder Anthony Tran of Trippy Tran Films is from! Watch all the greatest moments from the Zombie Walk right here:

There are 37 various videos shot with the Sony Handycam here to check out. An edit was supposed to be made by the S.T.A.R.S. leader, but it’s been 3 years now so we decided it would be a good idea to upload all the raw clips so our viewers can get a first-hand look at what the Cincinnati Zombie Walk 2012 was really like!

What was your favorite costume, makeup SFX or moment? Comment below and be sure to check out our movies, skits, music videos, live performances, celebrity encounters, LA life, web series’ and more! Have a Boo-tiful Halloween month! And don’t be a zombie more than a month, okay?!

MTV’s Scream – Season 1 Finale (Screamson 1)

11855758_404781606388616_2934698648380298598_n

Being a fan off horror/thrillers, Trippy Tran Films writer/director Anthony Rory Tran experienced Wes Craven’s SCREAM when he was 13 years old. Movies like this have inspired him as a filmmaker (read the Inspiring Scares article by Slasher Studios) and when Scream 5 got cancelled, a spin-off stand-alone show was announced in 2013. Now 2 years later at the tail end of summer 2015, the final episode of MTV’s Scream is here. (See below for character theories!)

Scream-MTV-418x270

Now has the series so far lived up to the original films? It’s interpretive. For Tran, he believes that there are moments that will leave chills and horrify, but are also moments that drag with too many side stories (like most TV show spinoffs of movies) and not enough scenes with long lasting suspense, minus episode 7 “In The Trenches” and most of episode 3 “Wanna Play A Game” as those never let go of the suspense we know and love in a franchise like this. A lot of people also agree, there isn’t a lot of chase scenes. The killer seems to get his dinner and go, wanting some fast food for his murderous appetite – as Noah might say.

Obit_Wes_Craven-00d6e

Wes Craven born Aug 2, 1939 passes this weekend on Aug 30, 2015, the weekend before the finale of MTV’s Scream. MTV said they are doing a tribute to him after the episode. Not to be a Piper, but isn’t that a little odd that the director of the beloved franchise dies before the season finale of a not-s0-lived-up TV series of the same name? R.I.P. Wes Craven. You made some of the most unique horror films to-date.

Could there be a new story and killer in season 2? A continuance? How long can this Brandon James story last also as it does delve into the supernatural realm a bit – which was announced when the show greenlighted in 2013.

MTV Scream season finale

Anthony Tran gives his two cents from watching this season breaking down the characters, theories and who he thinks is the killer below! The season finale is tonight!!!!! See it tonight and then come back tomorrow to hear our thoughts on the season. Watch it tonight on MTV 10pm/9pm central. (All photos are owned by the respective artists.) CONTAINS SPOILERS!

P.S. You’ll never hear the classic song “Daisy Bell” the same way ever again after watching this!

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.
