CLEVELAND, OH, USA, April 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cleveland-based film production company BerryGood Films, in association with Skip Thomas Productions and One Shot Films sets the world premiere and red carpet event for its feature-length comedic film, "Hey Mr. Postman" on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at AMC Classic Solon 16 formerly Digiplex Solon Cinema 16, 6185 Enterprise Pkwy, Solon, Ohio 44139. The premiere is hosted by Andrew Lloyd, a Cleveland, Ohio resident and owner of the Ohio Entertainment Awards. Red carpet starts at 1:30 p.m. and show time begins promptly at 3 p.m. This is a media friendly event.
"We shot "Hey Mr. Postman" entirely on location in my hometown, Cleveland, Ohio," said "Hey Mr. Postman" Writer and Executive Producer Brian Berry. "The outpouring of support has been overwhelming." Berry has sold out three theaters at the AMC Classic Solon 16. "Fans have already purchased tickets months in advance to attend the highly anticipated official world premiere and red carpet event."
"Hey, Mr. Postman" is based on true events experienced by Berry. "My father retired from the post office after 33 years of service," said Berry. "In 2011, I applied and was hired for a mailman position at the Newburgh Heights Post Office in Cleveland, Ohio. After a year of experiencing unique and wild situations, I was fired."
The film has the feel of the "Friday" movie franchise. The protagonist is Brian Lincoln, a slacker, who refuses to grow up and take real responsibility. When Brian loses his job, he gets a hook up at the post office where he learns just how challenging being the local mailman can be. In addition to all the crazy situations he ends up in, he unwittingly finds himself in the middle of a missing person investigation for which he may be the key to solving it all.
"The amazing cast from Walter Franks to Omar Gooding really took my script to another level, which will take the audience on a wild ride of unforgettable characters, belly laughs, twists and turns," said Berry, a first-time writer. "It's also exciting to have Cleveland native Actress Paula Jai Parker starring in my film." BerryGood Films cast more than thirty local, Northeast Ohio talented actors.
"Our film crew was based out of Ohio. We worked with many other local filmmakers to complete the project," he said. "Some of the one-of-a-kind hip-hop wardrobe was provided by Ohio-based fashion designer Demetrius Brazile of Do You Apparel."
The feature film stars Walter Franks (The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Scream II, Boycott); Liana Mendoza (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious BIG, Ray Donovan, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Better Call Saul, American Horror Story, A Haunted House, Zane Sex Chronicles); Paula Jai Parker (Friday, Hustle & Flow, Hollywood Divas, Ray Donovan, Family Time); Omar Gooding (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious BIG, Baby Boy, Smart Guy, Family Time); Rodney Perry (Madea’s Big Family, The Mo’Nique Show, Family Time); and Anthony ‘AJ’ Johnson (Friday and Menace II Society).
The soundtrack for the film includes original music. The title song, "Hey Mr.Postman," is performed by Artist Fly Tye. Other tracks includes:"I DiIP," by Edawg features Sir Mix_A_Lot and Money B from Digital Underground;"For The Night," by Alphy Nics Featuring Omar Gooding aka "Big O," rap artist Doe Boy, and Rych Twyns' "Ain't Real," from Oakland, California. Cleveland's popular DJ Meel is the music supervisor for the film. He is known as the personal DJ for NBA Star LeBron James.
Cleveland's own award-winning Director Mike Berry, who is not related to Brian Berry, is best known for productions such as "Banger, If You Knew Better," and "3rd Floor West." Producers include Skip Thomas Productions, Tina Hobbs who is also the casting director, Curtis Elerson best known for "Paper in My Pockets," "My Life Over The Top" and "Seed of Hip Hop," and Jillian Holt of Langston Tributes.
The journey from concept to script and production wasn't quick or easy. "I met Brian four years ago," said Elerson who manages Gooding. "I read the script and shot a sizzle reel to help raise the money to shoot the full feature."
When Berry, the writer, funded the film, he called Elerson. "I made a few calls to some of my great acting friends and we brought Hollywood to Cleveland," said Elerson, the CEO of One Shot Films.
“Think the image; see the image; write the image; then make a movie,” says Writer Berry who is also the CEO of BerryGood Films.
“Filmmaking is in my blood,” says Director Berry. “It was my pleasure to work on a film that will appeal to just about every audience while at the same time adding to Cleveland’s thriving art and entertainment culture. We’re building a Hollywood Midwest environment and I’m looking forward to being a big part of that movement.”
