Celebrating 3 years in Los Angeles after moving from Cincinnati, OH (yes, thats where Steven Spielberg is from, where Kroger is a grocery store and the birth of the first national baseball team was signed: Redlegs), the Trippy Tran Man is now in California making moves and a new visual photo art book is now available to showcase all the hard work and adventure. From our own original content to working on several more series’ plus, a look at the new promotional music of ART A Reasonable Truth aka Trippy T, the photo book is as vivid as it is informative and limited quantities are hitting the market.

Tran is even convinced after creating the first major community film project in Cincinnati Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown that it brought Hollywood production companies to the city – interested in filming there after doing so much with his team since 2008. The book itself will reflect on 9 years of filmmaking including bits on the 3 he spent in Los Angeles so far.

40 Days of Success


Dreamers follow an unwritten journey leading them up different winding paths, opportunities and experiences as each passing day comes to light. Though, some believe everything is destined to happen, we continue to strive for collaboration, endurance, confidence and achievement to reach and make these goals. Sharing this unique experience we call life can be rewarding and even disappointing at times, but as we hold onto our inspiration and faith, we find that anything is possible.

As owner, director, producer and writer amongst many other roles (cinematographer, singer/rapper, editor, production assistant, etc.) for Trippy Tran Films and other production companies, I have been continuing the dream and doing my best to complete some of our projects in the balance. Our goal still includes releasing our feature film debut Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown to festivals and audiences worldwide.

I’ve always been open to joining forces with other people in the entertainment industry and our love for creating and connecting will only continue to expand. (We encourage everyone to never lose sight of what they want in life!) Here are some of my own biggest feats, a new entry showcasing 40 Days of Success and determination up to this point in my life. Check back for new entries starting March 1, 2017. Believe in yourself. Believe in others.

Day 1 – New Music from Trippy T

Trippy T - Anthony Tran - CXL Photography IMG_0311

True artists are always making music whether it’s publicly released, finalized or not. This image is taken from the photo shoot on location of my new music video TBA (shhh! – details yet to be revealed!) There are a lot of surprises with the new songs and the upcoming Centerpiece EP. Working with celebrity model photographer Chris Anthony of CXL Photography fall 2016 was refreshing. I felt as I could really be myself in this video, now having lived in Los Angeles for almost 3 years and loving the SoCal atmosphere.

You can check out my reverbnation.com/TrippyT page to hear potential tracks for the EP Centerpiece – which is currently in the works and be sure to follow  facebook.com/TrippTMusic


Day 2 – Co-Producer and Cameo Role in Sovereign Entertainment’s Devil’s Point

Throwback to the club scene in the new movie Devil’s Point that I co-produced and made a cameo in with these lovely stars of the film (Alexander Sedlak and Kait Stay). It’s been since 2011, but great things take time. We hope you can’t wait to see this supernatural horror from Sovereign Entertainment and Trippy Tran Films!

Day 3 – Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards Post Party Staff (2015-?)

Working Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports Awards Post Party Event 2015 & 2016.

Growing up watching Nickelodeon myself, it brought me joy to pump up the youth for their photo op and was in overall exciting to be part of such an exclusive event for a second year in a row.
In 2016, I was teamed up with the basketball photo booth guys and helped kids and families get their star photo moment with their print used as the backboard for a mini-bball hoop and was also given my own hoop.

In 1 week, the Kids’ Choice Awards will be hosted and airing March 10, 2017 on Nickelodeon.


Day 4 – Director of Photography on Long Beach, CA web series MÆRY QUEENS

20150809_121707

Maery Queens – Long Beach with Anthony T. Tran as director of photography.

Working with the cast of Mæry Queens as official Director of Photography on season 1 (available to watch for free) where I worked with MTV Brasil actor Anthony Moore (Malady, Into the Shadows), Kyle Mosonyi  (“Gone” Music Video) and Ashley Hernandez (My Vacation In L.A. – Top 10 Countdown) and of course the rest of the stellar cast involved.

Production took place throughout the month of August 2015 and the first 4 webisodes premiered in April 2016 with a red carpet premier at one of the filming locations: The Silver Fox. I used facebook Live during the event highlighting some of the star moments, interviews with most of the cast and even spoke on stage in front of the audience.

I became so passionate about this project that I ended up writing additional segments to the show with solo confessionals with each character in between episodes that started after episode 4. It also marked my first major role debut in Long Beach and first cinematography role in Los Angeles County.

Day 5 – COEXIST wins Audience Choice award for CMF 2009 in Greater Cincinnati

Winning our first movie award in the city for our horror short COEXIST and pictured with legendary synth-funk group Midnight Star’s Bill Simmons who was also one of my instructors.

In my final project in college at Brown Mackie Cincinnati, I had already directed 3 original shorts and several other music video projects, etc. Before #ObliquityMovie was started, this was the film that encouraged me to continue following my passion as we won an Audience Choice Award for a horror film in 2009! If anyone remembers that Era, horror films were coming out left and right and it was hard to find anything original. To this day COEXIST by @trippytranfilms remains bold, thought-provoking and unique.

Day 6 – Assistant National Contest Admin for iHeartRadio contests & Clear Channel Media + Entertainment (2011-2014)

Hired at Clear Channel Media & Entertainment AKA #iHeartRadio for 3 years with 3 different job titles for radio nation.

In the birthplace of radio, Cincinnati, OH I had a good friend who saw my passion and ambition for working in entertainment. In 2011, I was hired to run national contests including giving away $1000 more than 5 times a day as well as trips to the iHeartRadio Music Festival in #LasVegas, plus, exclusively with my boss ran the private show #contest for the Justin Timberlake 20/20 Experience debut and Miami and L.A. shows and pool parties with America’s top artists.

I then was hired for commercial dubbing then music in production tech. I trained and worked with original members of Blessid Union of Souls I left the job to pursue my film endeavors in #California. Here I’m pictured with KISS 107 FM host Jare E. J and WEBN legend Shroom. Also pictured is the UK’s Morning Parade and Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups in the Coke Lounge. Both great guys to be studio neighbors with. For fun, you can hear my radio voice in our short film #MyVacationInCincinnati

Watch Morning Parade’s “Alienation” music video

It’s not been the same since and I do miss the main jobs I had, especially sending people to big festivals and hearing their excitement when awarding them. The festival played live yesterday on broadcast television.


Day 7 – 27 Bands and Artists on our upcoming film debut Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown

You may not be able to see all 27 bands and artists in this collage, but when we started our feature film debut, we never imagined networking with over 100 bands and artists talking submission, free posters that we’d provide to promote, and even some of the leading acts making a cameo appearance in the film. We ended up collaborating with over 150 people nationwide. Obliquity is a film that drew people in for having a positive outreach, wanting to unite several talents with the idea of us all promoting each other. A true collaboration – especially on the indie front.

When I was 21, I began another attempt at making a feature (my first was when I was 16 for an outrageous parody film The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever) after COEXIST had taken an audience award voted on by college students: the upcoming generation. I created a film that I wanted to resonate with people that went beyond some of the garbage that Hollywood was putting out by making a movie that spoke to the human soul with ideals to open people’s minds and showcase undiscovered talent (some that were well on their way) by bringing forth a colorful connection.

You can check out a list of bands and artists here and on IMDB for a full list of songs and names. The movie track “Obliquity” by ALTERED premiered on WEBN 102.7FM Greater Cincinnati local radio. Two music videos have been made so far for our upcoming psychological thriller including “Empty Minds” by punk rock band Killer Looks and Noise. Check out the work from affiliated bands & artists on our soundtrack and let us know your favorite tracks in the comments section.

Day 8 – Official Videographer/EditorProject SpARCH (STEM) Fundraiser

SpARCHing a new change in our community and across the nation.

Continuing the journey in Ohio back in 2012, I was asked to help bridge the connection between the University of Cincinnati and Hughes High School by filming a crowd-funding video that would kick off the STEM program where college students mentored high school students for their next stages in life in their field by creating an academic bridge. Advocate David Mierke approached me about collaborating, and after a successful meeting, I asked Josh Luckett of EZ World Entertainment to assist me on the production that would soon start a positive spark in education.

Watch the Project SpARCH video

The two of us worked with Dave and Jenna as well as the principal of Hughes High and the director of SAID/DAAP teachers. We recorded a variety of students showcasing their skills regarding architecture and design, math and science as well as their excitement for the program. After the video was featured on indiegogo and facebook, STEM ended up coming to fruition by gaining national attention from Washington D.C. and broadcasts on network news.

What we know:

So Nick is having a birthday party, Mario is moving back to Colombia, Ian is upset that Nick told Andrew he cheated on him, Brandon could want to be the manager at Nick’s restaurant, Rachel was planning a surrogate baby with Nick,  Dustin was kicked out of the house after the breakup, José only seems to like white boys (but recently has dated Latinos) and Andrew is in real estate and in the presence of an ex. With the threat saying “put the house up for sale or kitty gets it” and then later the kidnapper threatens the guests if they keep prying – it really could be any queen.

Still from the season finale, episode 12 “Guilty Queen”

Top Moments of “MÆRY QUEENS : The Web Series”

Nick is hosting his 35th birthday party in Long Beach, CA with some of his most beloved friends. But not everyone is out for Nick’s best interest, it seems. A threatening message demanding that he put his house up for sale or they’ll kill his kitty cat Hotto and possibly the guests at the party leaves the group shaken and blamin’ as everyone gets an unexpected surprise.

Pointing figures and deciphering the mystery, let’s take a look at some of the best moments that shaped this season into the drama-fest mystery and find out some exclusive behind the scenes juicy info on MÆRY QUEENS : The Web Series (Season 1)

1. The Pilot

Episode 1 “Birthday Queen”

In the pilot, Nick is excited to have his diverse gay pals (plus one thirsty faghag) at his birthday celebration, even though one of his best friends Mario is looking to move back to Columbia. When he opens a box with a film noir-esque magazine cut message inside, he finds out that someone wants him to move far away and will do anything it takes whether it means hurting his only pet, or someone at the party.

Most of the ensemble cast is featured here. Ali Cesur, Daniel Donnie Flores, Alex Correa, Felix Aispuro, Kyle Mosonyi, Ashley Hernandez and Allan Carter. Where is Anthony Moore and Fernando Gonzalez?!

Watch a clip from the production of episode 2 “Bitchy Queen“:

Also pictured is the creator/writer Henry Corzo as he looks into the lens and directs the scene that kicks off the dramedy and mystery and the Director of Photography aka singer/rapper Trippy T also known more professionally as Anthony T. Tran.

2. The Silver Fox

Episode 3 “Racist Queen”

Not only is this the location of where the show premiered webisodes 1-4 in April 2016, but was also the place used as a flashback scene location for episode 3 and again later in episode 8 “Gossip Queen”.

In these scenes, we learn that they gang used to smoke outside the bar and then that Ian was making out with a stranger while dating Andrew. Could either one be seeking revenge against Nick?

It was fun setting up the two lights we had and hearing people get excited as they drove past watching us on our production. When we hosted the red carpet event here, the show gained more of a following and now marks the spot as one of our official ‘MQ’ landmarks.

3. Closer to Midnight

As each episode progresses, a new hour has occurred until the last episode hits midnight and everything must be in place for the tricky kidnapper to be satisfied. In episode 10, “Family Queen”, Mario talks to his father about his trip to Columbia when he finds out when or if his other friends have come out to their parents. Finding family around is important, but then who would want to hurt the group?

Trippy Tran Films Projects 2016

There are a lot of inventive media creations here at Trippy Tran Films and not even all have released. What better way to share them on the birthday of America. Let’s take a look at some of our most anticipated projects of 2016.

1. Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown


The debut feature film premiered in December 2013 in Cincinnati, OH with a 2 and a half hour runtime. This psychological thriller has been raved about from those who have actually gotten to witness it calling it “mind blowing”, “like entering The Matrix” and “original”, this movie is sure to be a cult classic whenever it gets released. The issue is finding investors to pick it up and to have a theatrical cut of around an 1hr45 and to have a sound designer master the audio mix.

    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.

    image

    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.
