Making an independent film is no picnic. Starting with a great script, you then audition the cast, find locations, recruit extras and do your best to maintain quality work amongst the big budget Hollywood world – and this can prove to be a lot to take on.

Watch the new behind the scenes post production clips with voice overs, photo shoots and more!

When we started our feature film Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown we didn’t expect to have script rewrites, recasts and other setbacks along the way of filming this movie. At one point, 3 of the main cast members left the project after only a few main shoots including the actress in COEXIST who played Nurse Lucy.

Finally in 2013, we finished production on a no/low budget community basis in Greater Cincinnati Area (where films like Rain Man, Ides of March, Goat, and James Franco’s The Lost Boy and more were filmed) and it was time to begin voice overs and photo shoots (for posters and promotional use) and that meant reuniting the main cast to finish the work it takes to make a well-rounded film.

See Anthony Tran taking charge as director/producer of the project with the team as we strive to achieve the best results for making our debut feature independent film production on the post side of things including some scenes from the movie as they work on redoing their lines for a studio recording to make our production better than ever. With only a dream, true passion and hard work making it all come together, this is how we unite.

The Acting World of Filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran

Having a passion for several projects, it’s no surprise that director/writer Anthony T. Tran would delve himself into the world of acting.


“John Doe” premiered today on VEVO, featuring a role by Trippy Tran Films owner Anthony Tran.

When he was 15, MTV came to his high school looking for the next ‘Made’ – a show about every day teenagers wanting to do something with their passion – in which Tran applied to be made into a filmmaker. At the last minute, he changed his mind and selected model instead. During the interview, which was with a lady and a recording camera in an office, the lady asked him why he wanted to be a model. He told her the truth that he is indefinitely passion about film making, but wanted to experience the other side of the camera and also show what he can do in front of the lens.

Tran went to attend Scarlet Oaks Vocational School his junior year of high school where he made several videos including his first attempted feature at the age of 16 called “The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever” and other music videos and projects, taking turns acting for all his classmates projects and then starring in some of his own like the MSI “Prom” cover video he did when he was 17.

In college, he did the same for his classmates and even made cameos in his first short films in 2008 “InPersonNation” and had fun in the “Universal Intelligence” music video by Dok when he attended Brown Mackie College-Cincinnati in the Audio/Video Production program (which will no longer be a program as of September 2015). From 2007-2009, he was in movies like “Crosses To Bare”, “Pizza Boy’s Fantasy”, sang the end to “Cyclone: Behind The Storm” and a cameo as ‘Tiger Woods’.

Reaching out on his own projects, he found opportunity and was then cast as an extra in Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and then in several other videos and projects including Zebras In Public’s “Propaganda” video – which was shot with the newly released Red Cinema 4K camera – giving his debut on VEVO for the first time. VEVO is an industry-only approved video site where all the top artists and celebrities appear. “John Doe” marks his second appearance on VEVO and was made possible with the amazing talent and collaborations with the ‘Rock-N-Soul’ band, Zebras In Public.

Tran is passionate about all aspects of the production process and we plan on seeing more of him in front of the camera soon. Currently, he has auditioned for a web series in Long Beach, CA and is hoping for more opportunities to come. If you would like to cast him for a project, you can email him at Anthony.Rory.Tran@gmail.com

Anthony Tran has currently been added to “Producers to watch 2015” and “Interesting Producers” via Twitter last night. Read his review of the iTunes release of Zebras In Public’s “Paradise Leg”. The album features both singles posted above and in addition, includes the song “Let It Go” – which was chosen for the Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown soundtrack.

Tran’s “Paradise Leg” Mini-Review
‘Zebras’ Bring Atmospheric Rock & Soul Fusion

If you want a band that really knows music, look no further, Zebras In Public shine in originality and thought-provoking lyrics all while being so fun to listen to.

Favorite songs include “Go” which talks about someone you just want to get away from, “Propaganda”, the first single, has a catchy chorus and really sets a tone, “John Doe” the second single, which I heard the music vid debuts  on VEVO June 9, 2015, a psychedelic story song with hints of inspiration from Pink Floyd with a blues-style funk, “Blown Away” is a high energy party jammer, and “Let It Go”, which is featured in the upcoming indie film “Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown”, has some real powerful lyrics and shows how mature this band really is, all while still rocking out and having fun.

Definitely check this album out. Lead singer, Zeb, rocks the striped mohawk which is pretty gnarly. Their efforts are definitely a 5/5.  With all the originality and at less than 10 bucks for 14 solid songs, you can’t go wrong. This is a music journey you won’t want to miss.

Other faves: “Sunrise”, “Ladies Rock” and “Change My Life” – really there are a lot of great songs here.
