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.
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.
It’s around the holidays nearing a close to 2018 and ART A Reasonable Truth (Anthony “Rory” Tran) is planning his new music video, second single to Centerpiece called “The Recipe ft. Ayem”. Though the subject matter doesn’t really have to do with food per se, the video itself showcases the lyrical undertones of one being such a “recipe”, one of the more parallel coorelations to the concept album.
ART A Reasonable Truth in New Music Video “The Recipe ft. Ayem”
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 and their “plan”.
The idea has similar relation to Anthony Tran’s latest directed short film QK-Hilltop (coming very soon) that deals with real-life government experiments in the 1950’s including MKULTRA, mind control, cloning and more.
Directed by Tyler Mason of Fallen Light Films in Ohio, the video is hoping for an end of year/early 2019 release.

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.

There is a lot in store for the filming of the project and like any film set, anything can happen.

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.
