“QK-Hilltop” is the 9th Original Trippy Tran Films Short Movie…And It’s A MindF*ck

Recently releasing his debut album under the artist name ART A Reasonable Truth, the “Rory Man” aka Trippy T has since been featured in Todrick Hall’s visual album “Forbidden” appearing in both “Forever” as a dancer and club kid in a dystopian future as well as a more featured role on the album track “Forbidden” video starring Jade Novah and Keala Settle (The Greatest Showman).

Watch “Forbidden” starting at 1hr4min and see Trippy T dance by the stage on the right side and stay tuned for this video after!

Also, we entered #PayMeChallenge for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 front runner queen Shangela. See more of our work with the Queens and read an article about Derrick Barry compared to our icon Titney Spears – doing it again since 2008.

There are also 2 more film projects that are on the way as well as plans for shooting music videos to ART’s album Centerpiece. (If you’re in Los Angeles and want to dance or be featured, email TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com ASAP!)

After producing 2016’s Denizen, and after working on the upcoming choose-your-own path show Choices – An Interactive Story, director Anthony T. Tran has been asked to direct a short film by writer/actor Charlie Harris (Escape West Films): QK-Hilltop. An odd, yet fitting name for a movie about the continuance of 1950’s government experiments. Based on true events regarding MK Ultra and Project QK-Hilltop.

Meet Jaime Helms. Waking up in a dark room, he finds himself trapped – or is it all in his head? The journey of finding himself becomes an obstacle as the world around him begins to distort. Ringing ears and voices can make or break the experimented.

Made originally for Shape AT&T film festival and to be submitted to many more, #QKHilltop is a hallucinatory trip that demands answers by its climatic finish. Be sure to follow it on facebook.com/QKHilltop @QKHilltop and spread truth about the things that are going on that no one dares talk about. Stay trippy!

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.

ART, Formally Trippy T, to Release New Music by 30th Birthday

AReasonableTruth.bandcamp.com

The electro hip-pop singer, rapper, writer with inspirational and motivational lyrics artist Anthony “Rory” Tran is now going by ART which stands not only for his known-by initials, but is the acronym for “A Reasonable Truth”, which has made its debut launch on social media platforms and with the new music page on bandcamp and also @areasonabletruth on IG and @areasonabletrth on Twitter – purposely missing the “U” conveying the message that there is only a reasonable truth with YOU and it’s up to “U” to find it.

40 Days of Success – The Interview coming soon!

“Trippy T was cool and so many people still call me it, like, when we recently shot Master T.C.’s “Gotta Be Free” music video at The Ohio State Reformatory the band and the crew all referred to me as that. I debuted that name in 2011 with our contest entry for Arby’s going with our production company Trippy Tran Films. I’m Trippy Tran. I’m Trippy T. My middle initial is actually T but so many people knew me in the day as Rory that it stuck and it does showcase my personality.

“|Choices| An Interactive Story” Is The New Project by Escape West Films and Trippy Tran Films

Choices - An Interactive Story Teaser Poster - Ian Sideview MirrorWhat if you could change how each character interacted with each other right in front of your eyes? What if the outcome was somehow altered and perspective was at the mercy of your fingertips?

Choices ss Episode 1 Twisted Fates Car promo

There have been several attempts at creating an interactive film story on YouTube, but |Choices| An Interactive Story goes beyond just a game over per wrong choice. Viewers will be altering the whole story as the movie progresses in this new series from Escape West Films and Trippy Tran Films – and the actions are sure to trip you out. The interactive experience puts you, the audience, right in the director’s chair as decisions on where the film goes are in your hands. Strap in, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Is anyone else getting Wreckfest vibes with the above image released for the show? (The driving of two guys rather than two gals this time?!) Though, not having any relation to the multi-genre short film, there is a mobile story game that anyone can play on their mobile devices with Wreckfest – An Interactive Story that’s based on the TTF movie, however, the game itself is a mobile exclusive.

JD and Tiffany - Choices Ep1 Twisted Fates still apt

With |Choices| An Interactive Story planned for DVD and YouTube release, progression and changing the elements are easier for computer users and DVD/Blu-ray users to interact with wherever you are, but on the latter, this experience will not be currently available for mobile devices just yet. The new show is directed by Anthony T. Tran so either way you know that it’s going to be a unique and fun-filled journey.

Episode 2 “DTLB” Takes #MVILA2 On A New Adventure to The Loop 

Now that the season 2 intro is out, it’s time for the tripsters to take an adventure on Ocean Blvd with a psychedelic journey taking us to colorful downtown Long Beach, California – where Tran currently lives – making episode 2 titled “DTLB” an unforgettable experience.


In season 1, our visit to Long Beach included the Aquarium of the Pacific, the Rainbow Harbor tour, and a look at the Queen Mary. This time, it’s nightlife in LB with a visit to The Federal Bar, Rock Bottom Brewery, the Grand Prix fiber optic landmark The Loop and more as Erin enjoys her 4/20 evening in LA County while having a blazin’ good time!

Viewers get to see the Obliquity actress get a little tipsy, similarly to what we saw in season 1 when Alicia, Trippy T and Legend go to Venice Beach. The “liquid courage” takes her and Randy around the beautiful rainbow city, sharing moments that remind us of the original My Vacation In Cincinnati – the short film about a couple who wins tickets to Cincinnati, Ohio – as Erin points out all the unique scenery and even asks to be put on top of The Loop. Daring!

Ashley Hernandez (AKA Ash Nicole) from the My Vacation In LA – Top 10 Countdown season 1 video makes a dashing return for season 2 in this episode and is joined by videographer Anthony “Rory” Tran (AKA Trippy T) as he hosts and records the show again.  Be sure to check out Ashley Hernandez in the web series Mæry Queens.

MTV’s Scream – Season 2 (Screamson 2) Finale Airs Tuesday

Screamson 2 is about to end, but you still have time to watch all 11 episodes leading to the season 2 finale of this dark teen slasher drama mystery that is Scream, or as many refer to it as MTV SCREAM or more officially Scream: The TV Series. The conclusion to this wickedly eerie chapter airs this Tuesday, August 16 at 10PM. So many questions are becoming answered, but we’re also left with so many still wide open. Like last year in our MTV’s Scream – Season 1 Finale (Screamson 1), we’re going to talk about our thoughts on the new and current story, characters and the potential killer(s)/accomplice(s).

Contains Spoilers:

Last year, we wrote out all our perspectives of the characters the show had given us right before the finale. This time, the story has gotten deeper with certain situations as well as introducing many new ones. What’s Eli and Aunt Tina hiding? Who burnt the house down that Emma was in with Eli? Why are Audrey’s letters in Kieran’s house? Why did Zoe have to die after Noah was stalked for the first time? Is Gustavo making the deaths in his comic book or is he really just a twisted artist from living with a Sheriff as a father? 

Let’s review our killer characters:
