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.
We hate to be the one to bring the news that actor Chris Corman unfortunately passed away last week. Director Anthony Tran received the news from Corman’s friend and co-star Amanda Eichelberger from My Vacation In Cincinnati the morning of this devastating loss.
We want to send our condolences and our prayers to Christopher Corman’s family, friends and co-stars who worked closely with Chris and knew what an uplifting, kind spirit he was with strong qualities including dedication, passion, persistence and loyalty.
He always made us laugh on set of both Trippy Tran Films movies (Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown being the big one which is planned for finalizations soon) and was one of the most dedicated persons Tran has worked with to-date.

Chris Corman stars as Chaz Seraphim Hunter in Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown, an archangel personified “hunter” of answers and truth in a chaotic world.
Chris Corman was without a doubt the band No Doubt’s biggest fan and even moreso of Gwen Stefani. His dream came true when she called him on stage and he got to do a dance with her in front of thousands of people including taking a selfie together. The video can be seen below.
We are trying to reach out to Gwen’s publicist and managers about the loss of Mr. Corman and see if she’d be up to seeing his starring debut feature film role in Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown. If anyone knows how we can get a hold of her, please, let us know or email us at TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com
With great sorrow, we hope the best for all the lives he’s touched so he can be remembered. We know his memory will shine on through his work.
R.I.P. Chris Corman
You were a beautiful friend and a unique and charismatic actor who always shined.

It’s heartbreaking to hear that the joy and enthusiasm and dedication of Christopher Corman will no longer light up the room. I was his director on several projects including our feature film debut Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown which is still seeking postproduction help. We did get to premier it at the end of 2013 and he did get to see his big screen debut in the theater so I’m happy he got to have yet another shining moment. He also starred in our 48 Hour Film project My Vacation In Cincinnati and always made people laugh.
To all his friends and family, I have tons of footage with Mr. Corman, a lot hasn’t been released yet. If anybody needs anything for his funeral, please let me know. I reside in Long Beach, CA where Chris and I talked about moving near there.. well Anaheim. Sadly, it never happened. We will honor and remember this unique soul and I hope when we release the feature film that we can remember him in a beautiful way for his passion and hard work as well as being such a fun guy to be around. Fly in the sky friend. You left too soon.
R.I.P Christopher Corman
You made us laugh and think like no other.
