What if you could change the way a story unfolded by the mercy of your own fingertips? By making alternate experiences for characters who have to make tough choices? Now you can with |Choices| An Interactive Story the new story game from Escape West Films and Trippy Tran Films, and this is just the beginning. A total of 4 episodes are planned for the episodic series “Twisted Fates” and this episode is just a chapter and the start of what’s to come. For mature audiences only.
Themes including friendship, relationships, domestic violence, harassment and more as “Twisted Fates” unravel. Episode 2 is taped and is planned for a spring release.
Fans of interactive films will come to see |Choices| takes to a new level. With the hype of Netflix’s new Black Mirror episode “Bandersnatch”, the familiarity for fans of twisting fates and seeing their outcomes will be more psychological. No path will have the exact same results and though there are dead ends, we won’t force you to try again 5 different times because you didn’t kill someone (cough cough, really Netflix?) as the subject matter hits closer to home in: |Choices| Twisted Fates. #ChoicesTF
Another set of episodes are being discussed after the release gearing towards more of the comedy approach, but will also include some controversial topics. Be sure to let us know your thoughts below and tell us which outcomes you discovered!
What 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?
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 Storythat’s based on the TTF movie, however, the game itself is a mobile exclusive.
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.

Being a fan off horror/thrillers, Trippy Tran Films writer/director Anthony Rory Tran experienced Wes Craven’s SCREAM when he was 13 years old. Movies like this have inspired him as a filmmaker (read the Inspiring Scares article by Slasher Studios) and when Scream 5 got cancelled, a spin-off stand-alone show was announced in 2013. Now 2 years later at the tail end of summer 2015, the final episode of MTV’s Scream is here. (See below for character theories!)
Now has the series so far lived up to the original films? It’s interpretive. For Tran, he believes that there are moments that will leave chills and horrify, but are also moments that drag with too many side stories (like most TV show spinoffs of movies) and not enough scenes with long lasting suspense, minus episode 7 “In The Trenches” and most of episode 3 “Wanna Play A Game” as those never let go of the suspense we know and love in a franchise like this. A lot of people also agree, there isn’t a lot of chase scenes. The killer seems to get his dinner and go, wanting some fast food for his murderous appetite – as Noah might say.
Wes Craven born Aug 2, 1939 passes this weekend on Aug 30, 2015, the weekend before the finale of MTV’s Scream. MTV said they are doing a tribute to him after the episode. Not to be a Piper, but isn’t that a little odd that the director of the beloved franchise dies before the season finale of a not-s0-lived-up TV series of the same name? R.I.P. Wes Craven. You made some of the most unique horror films to-date.
So now with the final episode, MTV is asking everyone to tell them #WHOISTHEKILLER for season 1. Could there be a new story and killer in season 2? A continuance? How long can this Brandon James story last also as it does delve into the supernatural realm a bit – which was announced when the show greenlighted in 2013.
Anthony Tran gives his two cents from watching this season breaking down the characters, theories and who he thinks is the killer below! The season finale is tonight!!!!! See it tonight and then come back tomorrow to hear our thoughts on the season. Watch it tonight on MTV 10pm/9pm central. (All photos are owned by the respective artists.) CONTAINS SPOILERS!
P.S. You’ll never hear the classic song “Daisy Bell” the same way ever again after watching this!
Here at Trippy Tran Films, ideas are constantly rolling between director/writer/operator Anthony Tran and his team of creatives whether it be a skit, a parody, a new commercial, a radio spot, voice over work, vLogs and more.

#1 GENESIS OF THE HEY HEY
PocaHeyHey has been an idea of Tran’s since 2011 (so don’t even think about trying to steal it!) The complete minisode collection has been put together and Tran and fans alike would like more to come. The idea has spawned multiple side videos including SunnyGayGay and a list of ideas we hope to bring to our channel in the near future!
Short and sweet. The middle is a tummy tickler for sure!
#10 “Prom” Mindless Self Indulgence (Cover Video feat. A.Ro Tran)
After creating The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever, cast and crew members were featured for their Junior Prom video filmed right before their actual prom! This made one of the most entertaining and hilarious videos that Tran did in high school. The video was so explicit with drinking, masturbation references and cussing that it practically got banned from his school.
What was your favorite video?! Tell us in the comments below and as always, please follow us, subscribe, like and share! Or we won’t be able to make anymore videos.. ever! Ha. For real though. #Support

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.
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.
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.
