New Song “I’ll Risk It All (feat. ART A Reasonable Truth)” Discusses Feelings in Isolation by Sonanze

It was winter 2012 in Cincinnati, Ohio the days that dynamic duo on several music tracks Sonanze and ART A Reasonable Truth (originally Trippy T) would get together and record music in a basement with instrumentals that Ukrainian talent Mikhail Sinenko would make with Anthony “Rory” Tran, including score music for Tran’s debut full-length film Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown. With a Europop-type vibe on most tracks as well as orchestral sounding tunes, the two finally got together to collaborate on a song.

Sonanze (Sinenko) would make the sounds and even wrote verses lyrically to the previously unreleased demo “I’ll Risk It All” while ART (Tran) wrote the chorus and performed some of the raps already written for him. Together, they created the song that fits even moreso into today’s world while many people are in isolation, unable to do normal every day things due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic we are dealing with: COVID-19 and how it feels to want that human connection of a love that’s waiting for us to find.

Being in quarantine makes us long for more of a human connection and even though many of us cannot create with a team like we used to, we all hope to build greater connections when free of this situation.


ART A Reasonable Truth’s current discography at areasonabletruth.bandcamp.com below includes exclusive releases.

You can hear more of Sonanze on soundcloud as well as ART A Reasonable Truth on most major music platforms with his debut album Centerpiece, where Sonanze also created the instrumentals for the tracks “Get Down With It!”, “IDGA$” and “Jubilant Soul”. ART hopes to finish his original first album with 21 tracks almost all conceptualized that Sonanze created the music for entirely himself. They were in their early 20’s when this project began.


YouTube premiered it as well as the areasonabletruth.bandcamp.com page exclusively and the lyrics can be found at both.

ART A Reasonable Truth Premiers “SoCal Waves” as New Single With Upcoming Music Video

It’s about that time! Summer is in the air and the ‘Centerpiece’ has released another anthem, this time, showcasing beach and west coast vibes by the ocean that will take you away on a vacation. “SoCal Waves” originally premiered in February 2016 with the My Vacation In LA season 1 finale in a demo form.

ART A Reasonable Truth produced an album with Grammy board and multi-million dollar studio-taught mix and master Wendy Levin of D.M. Gremlin Studios with an instrumental by Billy Burton; the collaboration and oceanic sounds are dreamy and chillular.

Listen to “SoCal Waves”

After releasing 3 singles prior including “Centerpiece”, “Get Down With It!” and “Ready”, “SoCal Waves” is planned to be the first music video of a visual album, but unlike artists like Beyoncè and Todrick Hall who release it all at once, the “Trippy Tran Man” plans to release the videos out of order and at different times before all the pieces of the ‘Centerpiece’ concept is complete. Trippy.

Want to be in the upcoming music videos? Trippy Tran Films and team are looking for background, actors, dancers and more to be a part of this project. Copy/credit will be provided and there will be meals on set for those who are needed more than 5 hours. Email TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com subject: Centerpiece.

ART Premieres Hip-Hop Anthem “Ready”

When a tracks bangs such an anthem that could easily hype any sports event, be a song for going out – or even chillen, and just relating to being ready for whatever comes next, this “j-amthem” will make you want to hit that repeat button and the vocals will indefinitely get stuck in your head.

Stream/Download “Ready”

In contrast to the previous 2 singles released by ART A Reasonable Truth so far, “Ready” is a bouncy hip-hop jam with such flare and pizzazz that it stands out with a self-confidence motivational message:

“Check your back, I’ll attack/Yeah I’m ready for it/From the bottom to the top/Yeah I’m ready for it/When you know what you do/Yeah I’m ready for it/Yeah – ‘Cause I’m ready for it”

Artist Anthony Rory Tran is ready to show the world what he can do with music and talent with another banger by Aaron Byrd – the man behind the beat of the “Centerpiece”single. Tran surprisingly let the mix into an Instagram advertised mixing house in New York for this track in particular wanting to collaborate with different engineers on the album for a sense of diversity. The track was mastered in Long Beach by D.M. Gremlin Studios who also worked on a majority of the tracks for the debut album Centerpiece – which is coming to all music major platforms February 9, 2018.

“Ready for something bigger than you can see/Something that can take you and believe”

Is this the new 2K18 banger? Comment your thoughts below and be sure to let everyone know – who’s ready.

Top 10 Countdown for ‘My Vacation In LA’ Hosted by Ash Nicole and Charlie Harris

image

Watch the countdown video below!

SoCal just got sunnier with the new docu mini-series My Vacation In LA which premiered this past February. Now Californians Ash Nicole and Charlie Harris are counting down the candid, the monumental, the hilarious, the zany, the uniquely beautiful and interesting travel moments plus, our special guest hosts show us plenty of fun surprises sprinkled all across this journey ever so sweetly- and it debuts here at Trippy Tran Films. (Watch it below!)

The dramedy of a trio traveling was a quiet smash amongst Cincinnati residents with the film My Vacation In Cincinnati when it premiered in the 48 Hour Film Festival 2012 starring the late Chris Corman. The short, being mostly an improv film with 5 locations in 2 days, was based on a screenplay by Shane Stephens (who played the outrageous magician, Tom Rococo.) The film received a director’s cut after the competition and promoted local bands and artists.

Throughout the process of completing our debut feature film, the psych thriller Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown, writer/director Anthony ‘Rory’ Tran (who now lives in L.A.) was editing bonus features for MVIC (My Vacation In Cincinnati) when Alicia became his first Ohio visitor on the west coast. They made a joke about filming their adventure traveling all over LA (and the OC too with Knott’s Berry Farm) making a new series out of it to share with the world.

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.

MÆRY Queens card backMÆRY Queens card front

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.

New Release: Indie Post Production Clips of ‘Obliquity’ ADR & Photo Shoots

Character Promo 2 - Dane Hollywood

Nathaniel Grauwelman (“Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown”, “Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies) character promo.

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!

Chaz  Seraphim Hunter - Character Promo still Obliquity full yt
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.

Angela Foster - Character Promo Still

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.

Lucy Horbed - Character Promo StillNow for the first time, you can see the actors in a home studio (Eazy World Entertainment’s Austin Byrd’s house aka artist and mixer Ayem) with photographer Fiora Casey of Frenzy Photos (who is also the mother of Tia Casey who plays the promiscuous Lucy Horbend.) 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.

Do The Apple Turnover! 10 More Tummy Ticklin’ Original Vids with TTF Produced Commercials! (Skits Part 2)

Trippy Tran Films - STAR LOGO HiResLast week, we listed 10 skits that have tummy tickling moments and we even listed all related videos including the future soon-to-be PocaHeyHey official, the reincarnate of Pocahontas in today’s society, plus character parodies like Titney Spears, Selena Stop!mez, Marie AntoiNOT!, the MSI “Prom” music video, the hilarious radio spot “Leatherware” and more. Well, you didn’t think it would stop there, did you!? Trippy Tran and Trippy Tran Films have been making professional videos and zany comedy skits since 2007 (and owner/operator Anthony Rory Tran has been writing since he was an itty bitty wittle kid.) Here’s 10 more skits! And look! You don’t have to worry about annoying ads all over the page (besides a select few of our own which we implore you to check up on it.) Also, you don’t have to click a Next page button constantly just to finish the article! It’s all listed below!

#1 Do The Apple Turnover! (Churry Churry)

In 2011, Arby’s was having a Cast Calling contest and Anthony “Rory” Tran aka artist Trippy T was on it. In less than a week, he called his local Arby’s (one with the original cowboy hat – those come few, far and between nowadays!) a flash mob of diverse folks, a killer food rap, a hot beat from Greg Durham aka Godtchie (who collaborated with Tran on the song “Mind ArC” for the COEXIST movie soundtrack – see our movies), the mixing style of Michail Sinenko aka Sonanze and the writing collaboration with Hapless aka J.B. Luckett of Eazy World Entertainment (see his debut music video) who also stars in the video as Tran’s hype man.

The video has gained the most fans and views for on a video for the Trippy Tran Films channel up until recently, now being the 2nd highest video with over 4 thousand views on the Trippy Tran Films channel with the highest count of views being our #2 video… (see below)

See the winner who worked with Owl City here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hidn_LJmTBI&list=PLF83E5ECB13355F92


#2 SIPPY BEARS Juice Bar, Smoothies & Wheat Grass Lemonade

Chef Dan immediately called Anthony Tran about filming commercials for his new business Panda Chefs. He hired Tran to film and edit his commercials from Sushi Bears to Bolly Bears (Indian Cuisine) to the Panda Chefs Shark Tank audition tape sent to ABC as he was being considered, Classy Beading (jewelry making) to Sippy Bears at Findlay Market in downtown Cincinnati, OH. Together, they made promos and tutorial videos to all the delicious exotic ethnic options including the emerging hype of wheatgrass being a new health trend. For some odd reason (that our market research hasn’t full grasped) the Sippy Bears is the most viewed promo and is officially now the most viewed video on the Trippy Tran Films channel at over 6 thousand views! Why do you think that is? Comment and see all the promos below!

Chef Dan with The Hunger Games star Josh Huctherson!

#3 CONAN! Please Blow Up My Car

In 2010, Conan O’Brien had a contest for everyone in the US to submit their crappiest vehicle video and submit it to NBC for the Conan O’Brien Show. The winner was in the same town the studio was in, Los Angeles, CA where Tran now resides. Too bad his car wasn’t in LA so they could blow it up on site. We might have won!

The selection description on their site mentions:

Working in conjunction with the writers of “The Tonight Show with Conan O’brien” we created this fun promo for the launch of the Lexus HS. From over 3,000 video submissions, Conan picked a winner of the worst car in America who would win the Lexus HS in exchange for his car being blown to bits.

You can see the winner here: http://vimeo.com/29120716


#4 Dorito’s Entry feat. MMA Fighter Chad Hinton

Actor Bobby Long approached Tran about doing a Dorito’s contest entry for the Super Bowl. Always game to collaborate, Tran united a team of people to create a video, and the resources included MMA fighter Chad Hinton and his own daughter in the video! Dorito’s bags spinning around his head by graphic/VFX artist Dan Hollandsworth made this video extremely memorable and a tummy tickler for sure, even if it didn’t win the contest (like most our vids – sad face !) There’s competition out there for sure, but isn’t it really about creating and collaborating to make unique and original videos? MMA fighter Chad Hinton thinks so!

See director/writer Anthony Tran’s “COEXIST” starring Bobby Long – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8PqUbrTaCw coming soon to The Official Trippy Tran Films Shorts Collection 2008-2015. Read about the epic DVD release here. Future articles about the double-disc set coming soon.

(Here’s hoping everyone’s still married!)


#5 Ke$ha at LA Pride 2015

Well Ke$ha made a comeback that Saturday night at LA Pride this past year. Tran attended the aftermath and went to the parade; but when we stepped through the gates, there was a lot of trash. Needless to say, it made a funny Kesha’s “glitter trash” parody.

See PocaHeyHey and other skits here – https://trippytranfilms.wordpress.com/2015/07/09/pocaheyhey-10-skits-that-will-tickle-your-tummy-da-rigghhht-wayyyy/


#6 Pimp Cups!

In 2007, Tran started at Brown Mackie College and graduated with an Associate’s of Applied Science degree in Audio/Video technology in 2009. The first storyboard project had to be done right, Tran said to himself – and even though the “Object of the Game” assignment was to film an angle, cut the camera and repeat to complete the project, Tran took it upon himself to do a small amount of editing so he could “disappear” from the pimp cups, which when premiered in front of his class, wowed the crowd.

See Tran’s “Drug Deal” featuring Izal Mane and Rel for a DP assignment he lead after he was recovering from being sick for the end of the month for a lighting class project – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oB6gQ0zNpo8 and the next video features them as well!


#7 “Get Looney On ‘Em!”

Whilst Tran attended Brown Mackie, they helped film videos for a whole bunch of local Cincinnati artists including big time Showtime music vid (we shot the Goonies video which never was released) as well as Izal Mane and Rel’s old group Cincinnati’s Most Wanted. The students all got to help production, but each student was given the chance to do their own edit for a grade. Above is Tran’s edit. Honestly, Tran got a C+, but looking back at it now, if we had more time, we would perfect the video, but shoot, this is a Looney Tunes anthem for real! How hot is their take on being “looney”. Fresh. Dope. Real. Why are we so underground homies?! Ha.

Video directed by Shawnna Johnson who also currently resides in California. Read her article on Tran and check out her site here – http://producershawnnajohnson.wordpress.com/2015/06/13/anthony-rory-tran-freelance-director/

See Izal Mane’s latest hit music video “Feed A Mouth” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnvkqRic6rk


#8 Radio Shacker!

Once again, another school project makes its way on our list. This hilarious video removed the original commercial’s audio for an assignment to redub the entire commercial. Thinking outside the box, Tran not only wanted to redo all the sound effects, music and voice overs, but instead, rematch it with a lip sync parody vid having Howie from Radio Shack say “can you transfer this cute white pussy to all my friends and family”. Yeah. We went there. See for yourself how well we matched lips and recreated the audio of a popular commercial. Featuring the voice announcer of Jeff Winkelman of Who Productions, Anthony’s main instructor at Brown Mackie College-Cincinnati.

IMG_20150717_122932

On July 16, 2015, Tran worked did more for sports as a P.A. on Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports awards post party event! Due to a knee injury from a serving job in SoCal, he wasn’t able to do as much as he wanted, but being at UCLA helping the team at the Lost Child Meet-Up Point and Lost and Found. With film makers Kimbra McCaul and Dustin Young.

#9 A Suphero Birthday Party!

Filming our debut feature Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown came with connecting with our cast and crew, and in this case, actress Tia Casey and members of the rock band The Upset Victory. Together, we celebrated Tia’s birthday wearing superhero costumes made from table cloths and styrofoam masks.

Unfortunately, later in the evening, Tran was jumped by two guys near the band mates car. Tran said “what’s up” to them and the next thing you know, was beaten to the temple with pounding fists for over a minute until his friends left the bar and realized what was going on. It was like a black out. The attack occurred at Bellevue Vets in which there were security cameras and was by a main street off of the Newport exit, but the officer let the attacker go right in front of everyone and didn’t do anything for the ruthless attack. Luckily, only the good memories were captured above and one might call The Upset Victory including the guitarist’s heroic brother for being a superhero at the end of the night.


#10 ACTV Special featuring German Commercial parody, The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever Behind The Scenes, Music Videos and more!

Let’s time travel back to when Tran was a senior in high school and was still (and still is) very passionate about film work. He took 2 years of German and was finishing some scenes for The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever after making the MSI “Prom” cover video before and after his Junior Prom and was asked to submit to public broadcasting featuring his works. This special is about 25 minutes and includes a lot of Tran’s earlier work.

A few years later, ACTV in Anderson Township, banned Anthony Tran from airing videos on their public broadcasting saying our work was “too commercial”. When Tran released “COEXIST” after 10pm on public broadcasting, there were some concerns about the majority of elderly people residing and watching the program that the film was so horrific that it might give them a heart attack, said by the chairman. We don’t think our stuff is that explicit, but to each their own! Now Tran is in California and will be making a new special for Long Beach and LA residents to check out his work going along with The Official Trippy Tran Films Shorts Collection 2008-2015.
