ART A Reasonable Truth Releases “GHOST” Music Video and Enjoys the GRAMMYs and Golden Globe Networking Parties

Hollywood Smollywood. Events are all around SoCal during big events such as the 80th Golden Globes pre-party and the 65th Grammy’s celebration for people the weekend or night before the awards take place and this year, Anthony “Rory” Tran, also known as ART A Reasonable Truth, got some invites through networks in the industry where red (and gold) carpets, stop and repeat photo shoots, and VIP celebrations are at the forefront.

Tran’s Grammy’s fit 2023.

While still very much an independent artist, the legend himself is building through new connections now that the pandemic is easing up on the world. Trippy Tran celebrates his birthday later this week and is going to be performing a small set at the 2HotRadio Super Bowl party in Arizona next Sunday on February 12th as he prepares his sophomore album release. There’s so much more in store and we will be releasing the behind the scenes segment known as Music Beyond of the “Ghost” single including footage of ART in the studio, shooting the music video, interviews and more.

This past Friday on 2/3/23, ART A Reasonable Truth premiered the music video to the new song “Ghost” showcasing an eerie cinematic performance piece that borderlines the Joker, wistfulness, ghosting (or being ghosted) and cold feelings in the world. The crazy thing is he even got ghosted on receiving photos from the original shoot and was put in the position to edit the video himself since the team he won the contest for lacked communication and gave the run around on its initial release that was slated for Halloween – on which the song did come out on.

“Ghost” music video promo still by ART A Reasonable Truth.

The climate of the world proves that people can still be very much a representation of Truth’s lyrics as people on social media still play the “follow me and I’ll unfollow you back” mentality in the Hollywood environment. That may prove beyond just a city as humanity feeds itself the social media game. Nonetheless, as Sasha Colby and Luxx Noir London (RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 stars) told him the other night at the Meet and Greet in WeHo, remember why your doing what you’re doing and don’t let anyone’s opinions try and definite you.

Where Has Anthony “Rory” Tran Been? “GHOST” Is Alternative Pop at Its Finest.

Trippy Tran Films strives to create inspirational, moving and original content. So where has the owner Anthony “Rory” Tran been this last year?

New song “Ghost” from upcoming sophomore album. (Listen below!)

Watch the new lyric video to “GHOST”.

At the beginning of 2022, Tran continued doing Office PA work and ended up help prep and wrap the Squarespace Super Bowl commercial starring Zendaya (HBO’s “Euphoria) and André 3000 from Outkast, directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World). Funny enough, the teams who went to Super Bowl LVI (56) were the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams – so his hometown (Cincy) battled it out with where he’s resided for the last 8 1/2 years (L.A.)

“GHOST” now on all major music streaming platforms! Add to your IG or facebook story.

At 21 million views, one of Tran’s biggest accomplishments so far.

Since handing Edgar Wright his storyboards and coffee that day, he had been non-stop working in the commercial world up until his trip back to Ohio where the teams he worked for were working more remote, though, once you’re working commercials, it’s hard to get to the film and TV side.

Just recently, ATran has been working as a PA on a TV show for EarthxTV that resumes filming mid-November, though all these jobs haven’t stopped him from creating. In sound design is the much-anticipated full-length Trippy Tran Films movie Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown and is looking to hopefully enter film festivals fall 2023. ART A Reasonable Truth’s sophomore album is being worked on and the first single just released yesterday on Halloween in time for spooky season called “Ghost” with a music video to arrive sometime this month.

New single “Ghost” with visualizer.

You can download “Ghost” at http://areasonabletruth.bandcamp.com which includes also the instrumental and a capella as it gets ready to hit all major streaming platforms sometime this week.

Some reviews from listeners of “Ghost”.

The IDGA$ Talk Show, sketch comedies, final episode of Choices: An Interactive Story “Twisted Fates” are all still looking to also come out early 2023. There’s also plans for our 10th short film, a slasher along the lines of Scream but with an original spin, the InPersonNation sequel, and new music videos are in pre-production.

Shout out to Zackary Arthur who stars in Chucky alongside Devon Sawa. Anthony Rory Tran was a camera operator and worked with Zackary Arthur on “PALS” in 2016.

The Tran Man is also on a new podcast The Business Revolution to come out soon and is working to expand Trippy Tran Films, LLC so in 5 years or less, the goal is for him to be directing big budget Hollywood movies also.

Our services include weddings, commercials, photography and film making, recording sessions, voice over work, video editing and in partner with Lexico Fashion, wardrobe.

Trippy Tran Films recorded and mixed “My Butt” OTF for client Jeremiah.
Trippy helped prep/wrap this spot for Call of Duty starring Pete Davidson.

(W)Rapper Music Video by ART A Reasonable Truth Includes Over 60 People Proving They Aren’t Rappers

The hip-hop contemporary rap jam #notawrapper was created in 2020 before the global pandemic and has been called Trippy T aka ART A Reasonable Truth’s best song yet as it includes heavy bass, a catchy chorus and a play on words with lyrics about being both a rapper and a wrapper.

The music video just dropped today, which features over 60 people showing some of their own talents from breakdancing, stripping, spinning fire, plus a lot more fun surprises. Just make sure to blast the bass while listening.

The music video, takes it to a whole new level, featuring talents from Los Angeles to Cincinnati, OH and beyond and it actually features some talented rappers like Kevy G, Adam Glevicky and Anthony Catanzarite who show their support for Anthony “Rory” Tran’s latest single. A sexy maid, a dojo stick spinner, poi spinning, goths, grandma, a gift for yo mama and more are all included in this colorful compilation as Truth’s style is shown with a hot red Honda R-Type car.

Anthony T. Tran has been working in Hollywood a lot more this year which included projects to help with Willow, Dua Lipa, Christopher Mintz-Plasse from Superbad, and many more talents and commercial work.

With the surge of Covid-19 and the new Delta Variant virus, it has been hard to want to update or showcase all the hard work that’s been happening behind the scenes. Trippy Tran Films has a lot more projects coming up and hope that we will be able to share them sooner than later. Keep it locked in with all of our projects at the links below.

Stream/Buy at http://Artmusic.fanlink.to/WRapper

Music can be hit or miss nowadays, especially in mainstream media, but there is a lot going on in the underground side that most people wouldn’t even know where to look to find hidden gems and hits.

Well look no further, Centerpiece artist ART A Reasonable Truth has teamed up with 7Fifty7 and Ravyyyy (as well as the Rory Man’s other artist name: Trippy T aka Tripp T) to make a bass banging catchy, yet fun – and funny at times – banger called “(W)Rapper”.

The last studio session to wrap the “(W)Rapper” song.

The track started after ART (Anthony “Rory” Tran) helped Frankie Mir and 7Fifty7 on the music video “Highway75” as part cinematographer and co-producer on an all night shoot. See that video below.

So whether you’re not a rapper or a “wrapper” wrapping gifts to yo mama – turn up the bass, get ready to start rapping and singing along as the new single from The Recipe artist celebrates his 32nd Birthday on the red carpet.

Tran will be media for the Gala event at Universal Studios for the Academy Awards event today. Tickets are now $1,000 to attend. He will be taking photos and videos with several others and will be submitting over 200 photos for the Hollywood stars event.

What do you think of the new song? Comment below and also, make sure to check out his debut album on all major music platforms at Artmusic.fanlink.to/Truth and areasonabletruth.bandcamp.com

Lyrics: What we gonna do – the original way?
Why we getting country in this bitch?

Y’all gloating about what you can do alright
Need to humble yourself and tell the truth alright
Tell me what you can but what you can’t do
What are you not gonna do?
I’m ready!

Hook:

I’m not a rapper / Not a wrap, not a rap, not a wrapper

The only thing I’ve wrapped was a Christmas present
The only thing I wrapped was a condom
The only thing I wrapped was my friend’s Honda
The only thing I wrapped was a gift for yo mama
I go Amber Rose got no top in the summer
Stuck in L.A. traffic but my life is not a bummer
I’ve been getting smarter but my watch is getting dumber
But my watch is getting dumber
Nanananana
Yeayeayeayeayea!

Where will I go
All stops on these hoes
Making them blow
Because I’m So official
Watching them bow
No stopping us now
Wearing the crown
While Dancing on clouds

Rocking every day like my name is Superbass
Making my own rules every time I get up in the place
In search of morality
It’s a formality
Staying true and free
That’s why they come for me
Your disability
I cross the Seven seas
Keep on sharing the peace
That’s the way I wanna be

The only thing I’ve wrapped was principle photography
The only thing I’ve wrapped was a – bar on this bitch..
Get it because yea.. I’m a rapper!

Hook – Repeats

Candy coated bars
Tell me how bizarre
Mission from afar
In your speakers to the stars

What what

Yeahyeahyeahyeah!! x3

Trippy Tran Films Working On Several New Projects for 2020 Release

The imaginative indie film company Trippy Tran Films is planning several new shorts, skits, a talk show and music videos for ART A Reasonable Truth. Most of the hard work is slated for a 2020 release and is further opening its doors to expand collaboration and artist promotion.

Hosting weekly meetings in Los Angeles, the team has expanded and reached out to several working people in the industry. Director, producer and content creator Anthony T. Tran (aka Anthony Rory Tran) has been working in Hollywood as a background actor and production assistant which has opened new doors for future collaborations.

With the recent re-release of the trippy government thriller, QK-Hilltop – which is based on real experiments in the 1950’s following MK-Ultra – the movie now has an official poster and you can watch it until the end of the year for free here.

Mind control experiments in the 1950’s could still be active today. Make your own conclusion after watching Trippy Tran Films’ latest QK-HILLTOP. For the spooky season, watch for a limited time.

So what about this talk show? Real news has fallen into propaganda and reality-style television and it seems nobody wants to talk real truth in the media. The IDGA$ Talk Show @idgas_talk_show is on TikTok and Instagram as of now promoting old skits and new including PocaHeyHey, contest entries that are funny and original, Titney Spears and more.

The first 3 episodes were taped last weekend in Burbank with more planning every weekend so that the first season can release every week also.

Short films in the works include the stand-alone impersonator sequel to InPersonNation as well as new horror and rom-com our sources reveal.

And of course, ART A Reasonable Truth is Anthony Rory Tran’s artist name who has been planning at least 2 more music videos including the theme to the talk show IDGA$ and the club banger Get Down With It! – as part of his concept album Centerpiece.

Also, episode 2 of Twisted Fates from Choices – An Interactive Story #ChoicesTF is being edited and looking to release by end of November.

Updates may have been lacking, but we assure you a lot of great things are in motion and a lot of new faces are going to be involved in upcoming projects. Be sure to subscribe to all the YouTube channels also on IG and facebook:

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.

ART Premieres Club Song “Get Down With It!”

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! The new club banger by ART is sure to make lovers of dance music go wild as we bring in 2K18 with “Get Down With It!” Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to get down with it!

Stream/Download “Get Down With It!”

The instrumental beat is produced by Sonanze and has “Centerpiece” singer ART on the track laying some dirty vocals chanting:

“Get down with an altered feeling/It comes and goes on/Get down with a “won’t-stop” feeling/I know I can lose control/Get down with a monster feeling/Get down and let it go/When we begin the chain/You gotta get down on the dance floor!” 

“Get Down With It!” is a party anthem for those who like high energy dance tracks with smooth breakdowns and wild sounds that you can’t help but jump up and down to. I mean, at least my friends and I can’t stop listening. And we like “Centerpiece” but damn – this may be even better. It’s that good. 

A Reasonable Truth AKA Anthony “Rory” Tran has worked with (and plans on working with more on the an already planned second album) musician Sonanze AKA Mikhail Sinenko on this EDM anthem who also created the music tracks to “Unfreeze (2012)” and “Shimmer Of Longing” amongst many others – unlike the recent release of “Centerpiece” who was made by beatmaker A-Rhyme also known as Aaron Byrd.

ART Premieres New Single “Centerpiece”

The new single just dropped – and it went right down your chimney. Happy holidays! With the current state of pop music, just like the film industry, there’s been a lot of hit and misses with overplayed reboots and lackluster content (and lyrics) that seems to cater to the American dollar rather than the beauty and craft of art with the real gems lying in the underground. A new surprise has arrived: introducing ART.

Play and get the new single “Centerpiece”.

Here at Trippy Tran Films, we believe in inspiring, motivating and making positive moves in mainstream media. We are pleased to present the new single from singer, rapper, lyricist, multi-genre artist Anthony Rory Tran who goes by the name of ART – which also stands for A Reasonable Truth, and has originally released music under the pseudonym Trippy T

Fans of pop, hip-hop, cruising-style, electronic infused music will be pleased to know a song called “Centerpiece”  is a life-jam calling everyone a centerpiece with lyrics: “Look now you’re the centerpiece/Saying everybody get like me”.

ART’s debut album CENTERPIECE is set for an early 2018 release and will have 11 original songs.

The music industry is mentioned in verse 2: “Octacables wrapped around me like a label/When it takes hold own the heart and let go” stating that octopus tentacles acting as cables can hold the ‘centerpiece’ tight and you may even go to the degree of interpreting those lyrics as people being constricted by the idea of money rather than the craft.


ART’s debut album of the same name is set to drop early 2018 with more singles to be released. What are your thoughts on “Centerpiece” as a new hit song? ART will also be featured on the new Master T.C. and the Visitors “Gotta Be Free” video set to drop in January. Hear that song here.

40 Days Of Success – The Interview with Filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran

Filmmaker, writer, director, producer, actor, singer, rapper, editor Anthony “Rory” Tran highlights the talents and collaborations from Cincinnati to Los Angeles including short films, feature films, commercial work and more. Includes a look at the future work of TrippyTran and ART.

Discover an in-depth look at all 40 Days Of Success!

Back in March, you may have seen #40DaysOfSuccess on social media by multi-talented filmmaker, actor, singer/rapper, DJ, etc. Anthony “Rory” Tran as each day, he posted something to be proud of in the independent film community to industry media work. Now come end of September, the Tran Man shares his experiences producing Denizen, directing/writing Wreckfest, what’s going on with Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown and The Official Trippy Tran Films Shorts Collection, plus the new show Choices: An Interactive Story and an exclusive look at working on his debut pop album.

Something tells me this is just the beginning as grounds aren’t all covered (see the in-depth look at 40 Days Of Success above) as projects he ran camera for and DP’d like Maery Queens, The United Estates of America, PALS, and assisting photo booths for Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards aren’t mentioned here – and we can assume that it will be discussed in the future. However, there is a lot already covered in 40 Days Of Success – The Interview and fans will be pleased to know that Tran is on the move to complete new releases with this visual update.

What are your thoughts on #40DaysOfSuccess? How long until another 40 more successes are completed would you say for this ambitious film maker?
