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

SFX Makeup Artist Sophia Anderson and Actor/Director Anthony Tran at the Cincinnati Zombie Walk 2012 (Videos below)

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!

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.

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!

#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.

The Most Offensive Horror Parody Releases: The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever

**TDHFE 2015 - Promo Day 2c - Jeepers Creepers.jpg**TDHFE 2015 Promo - One More Day - Dee

In today’s world, the media has pushed the envelope whether it’s saying “shit” on TV and radio more than ever, discussing racial topics and exploiting others for it, lots of boobage and sex on YouTube and TV (Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”, Justin Timberlake’s “Tunnel Vision” and hello – Miley Cyrus) or just plain violent programming on network TV and cable access (Hannibal or MTV’s Scream that premiered Tuesday anyone?) Needless to say, the world has changed a lot in the last 10 years.

New 2015 trailer parodies “The Gallows” TV Spot.

Disclaimer: This film is may be rude, crude, offensive, politically incorrect and is for mature (and immature) audiences who like that. The movie in no way represents the feelings or thoughts of anyone involved in the project. Trippy Tran Films holds no responsibility for the material of this film. You have been warned. You may get pissed off – or you may just laugh.. a lot.

Parodies in #TDHFE include Scream, The Ring, Final Destination, Darkness Falls, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Freddy vs. Jason, Saw, Taco Bell, Scream 4 (even though it was released 6 years after Tran’s short, he originally had a Scream barn scene parody) and more. The script had tons more parodies that have never been filmed yet, but the final product is still pretty awesome.

Celebrate 10 years of The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever!

Flashback to 2004/2005. Director/writer Anthony Tran was 16 years old and went to YMCA Summer Camp before his junior year. There, he wrote a short skit including 4 girls in his weight lifting class. The skit was then presented on stage for the end of the week talent show called “Scream Again Yo” being a parody of the Scream franchise as well as other horror films. He then wrote his “Sk8r Boi” Avril Lavigne parody called “Hermaphrodites”. Then in his junior year of high school, he went to attend the Scarlet Oaks Vocational School in Cincinnati in the program most fitting for him: Digital Television Production or DTV. He was making new music videos, skits, learning how to edit with Final Cut Pro and more. His passion for writing hadn’t stopped and so he turned his Scream Again Yo into a 50 page script called The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever. With friends reading it, some shocked and some thinking it was the most hilarious thing ever, he began to film scenes for the project and edited it at school.

First reaction at to “Hungry Potentials” scene in The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever

Ring tdhfe still 2

Now the kicker is that he was 16, young, a rebel, with an imagination like no other. He implemented racial issues into his movie and began to talk about what is funny in different cultures for an ending that left everyone washed away by the flood (except for a “lucky” few) spoofing The Day After Tomorrow and realizing that without the differences and cultures in our world, it would indeed be a boring place. But that’s not without saying the film may be offensive to many with it’s racial slurs, fat jokes and mentally challenged spoofs of horror icons Freddy and Jason.

Ring TDHFE still1As Tran grew up, he didn’t really get back into putting the film together as the script was only half shot, the Scream Again Yo scene never to be found (never filmed except for the YMCA Leaders Camp skit in which he paid for and never received a DVD for) and a lot of politically incorrect teenage angst built up as he was bullied in school before he began the project by several races that judged him for being half Asian (and ambitious) for being himself.

EXCLUSIVE! Read part of the original script here.

10 years later with moving films like His Name Is Walter to even more comedy mayhem like Wreckfest, Tran decided to take a look at whatever footage was salvaged before the film was gone for good. A fresh new cut – literally – has been made for the film. Some scenes were unable to be found like the classic The Ring parody where he actually shot the side of the TV with his friend Kat crawling out with long hair asking for chalupas. Memories like that will never be forgotten as he attempted his first feature, and only time will tell if any of the other footage will ever see the new world of YouTube and social media. At least we have this. The most offensive movie you may ever see.
