We’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.
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.
Discover more live bands by Anthony Tran including ORGY, Wallpaper., Hard Summer Music Festival, Bryce Vine, Silversun Pickups, Morning Parade, Without Contrast, David Blake, Finding Fate and more here at TrippyTranFilms.com
Upcoming live videos from the Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown soundtrack featuring The Glorious Veins, Gabriel’s Hounds, Celestials, Jess Lamb, The Front Runners, Lying In Ruins, The Upset Victory and more coming soon.

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.

Fundraiser kickoff 7/27/15
There is a lot in store for the filming of the project and like any film set, anything can happen.
Daniel Donnie Flores plays Ian in MÆRY Queens and gives us a little sneak peek.
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.
CALLING ALL MUSICIANS:
Music is being prepared for the series. We are looking for fun pop, dance, electro, rap, hiphop, alternative, ambient and more to fit with these characters and this series.
Interested musicians, bands, artists, composers, etc. can submit by emailing TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com
