New Seal Beach Long Beach 2 Episode of ‘My Vacation In LA’ Is “The Best One Yet” According To Audiences

Happy first official day of summer and you best believe it just got even hotter with the new beach-themed adventure of My Vacation In LA season 2 as the fairweather friends dive into a bright new adventure that has been acclaimed by fans and viewers as “the best episode yet” from this docu mini-series by filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran.

My Vacation In LA - Season 2, Episode 3 promo #MVILA2

Starring Erin Wilkin (Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown) and her honey Randy Roy with San Diego friend Adrianne, the colorful adventure includes classic California drives (with a gorgeous sunset and mountain view), a windy beach adventure, dipping toes in the Pacific Ocean, chasing seagulls, quick conversations and more in OC and LA County. And then comes conflict from Erin.

At this point in the adventure, Erin has landed on the west coast, traveled downtown at The Pike, and has had some tipsy moments (and also some rather bitchy moments) while being filmed. Knowing she had the opportunity to stay at long-term friend Rory’s place for free and in return would be in season 2 and give him Cincinnati favorites like Skyline chili cans, Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce and Grippo’s BBQ chips, she sure started distancing herself from any interaction on camera and it becomes apparent midway through this episode when Rory asks for a sunset photo with her.

Is this is the beginning of the end for season 2? Either way, this episode is filled with surprise and magic. And the birds! – a stellar connection to the original short My Vacation In Cincinnati is amongst the fun.

Several viewers have even voiced their opinion upon the release of this new episode calling it “The best one yet”, “So much fun!” and “Amazing.” What are your favorite moments? #MVILA2

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.

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.

‘My Vacation’ Series Gets A Blast of New Adventures from Cincinnati to Los Angeles

image

When the short film My Vacation In Cincinnati premiered at the 48 Hour Film Festival, it became a hit for its quirky dramedy at a B&B (Bed & Breakfast) when a couple wins a radio contest to see their favorite rock band. Written by Shane Stephens and filmed in 2012, the cast mostly did improv with the extreme time constraint traveling to 5 different locations all over the Nati. Starring Obliquity actor Chris Corman, the movie inspired the docu mini-series 3 years later with My Vacation In LA which released 7 episodes this past February in 2016.

With a Top 10 Countdown being released soon for MVILA starring MÆRY QUEENS actress Ash Nicole, a season 2 has also been announced starring another Obliquity actress, Erin Wilkin. Not only are we preparing season 2, but My Vacation In Cincinnati 2 has been announced as well and it features singer/rapper Trippy T aka Rory Man from MVILA seasons 1 and 2 and Alicia from season 1. These new adventures take Rory to a reunion for 2 weeks after he moved 2 years and 2 months prior to LA, returning back home since the earnest move.

Without revealing too many details, My Vacation In Cincinnati 2 features actresses like Tia Casey from Obliquity, Christina Murnen star of Duality, Tani Bhatnagar from Coexist, and Ren Hicks writer of His Name Is Walter and star of Wreckfest, plus talent from the Obliquity soundtrack including Dustin James and Maliz Pop. This is one reunion you don’t want to miss!

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.

Psych Thriller ‘Obliquity’ Whets Appetite with New Behind-The-Scenes Clips

The anticipated debut feature with the tagline “More Than The Eye Can See” from Trippy Tran Films and Sovereign Entertainment has recently released (mostly) spoiler-free Behind-The-Scenes segments on YouTube.com/TrippyTranFilms – be sure to subscribe as new videos will be added. The journey shows tie-ins to Tran’s original short “Duality” with glimpses at some of the surprises in store for the upcoming full-length independent psych thriller Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown.

obliquitymovie.wordpress.com

(watch the new behind-the-scenes adventure here):
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2I1IfO0DKp4bSeUXiYlTe9UoO-_SRaL5

The video clips include previously unreleased interviews, insight on the lives and thoughts of the cast and crew, waiting in the rain for location clearance, flat tires, getting lost, favorite film parts, the mishaps and the accomplishments, plus, the director himself in action giving viewers a chance to see what it really took for us to make this community-oriented full-length indie film in the Greater Cincinnati Area.

Tran also mentions future releases in the playlist are going to include bands from the Obliquity soundtrack performing live, photo shoots with all the actors for the movie poster, the original cast (recorded with old school cell phones), rehearsing, voice overs and a First-Look at the band ALTERED in the recording studio performing the song they wrote for our film – also entitled “Obliquity”. (Playlist link is above – with 34 clips currently.) We will update the playlist weekly until we run out – and that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Now when viewing the clips, you may notice that they are completely unedited video segments recorded per clip. Due to it being filmed off of a Sony Handycam (that Chris Hicks gave Tran in 2011) we found it to be incompatible with the MacBook used for handling the movie’s files while editing on Final Cut Pro. When we tried to view the file, there was no audio. We decided to give you the raw recordings as part of the experience because of that.

Obliquity Teaser - grab from facebook

Teaser promo for the director’s cut test screen release which premiered December 2013.

By uploading each video to YouTube, audio and video then became readily available. The behind-the-scenes preview is here to ‘wet your thirst’ for more as we prepare finalizing postproduction of the film this year. New videos will be uploaded to the playlist periodically.
