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.

The Acting World of Filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran

Anthony Tran - headshot 2015 - blue IMG_1431

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.
