The world premiere and red carpet event for “Hey Mr. Postman” is set for June 9 at AMC Classic Solon 16 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Walter Franks is the star of the feature film, “Hey Mr. Postman,” which is based on true events experienced by Writer Brian Berry.

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.”

— Brian Berry the writer and executive producer for Hey Mr. Postman.

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).

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.”

Fellow speakers and presenters include Jennifer Aniston, The Chainsmokers, Morgan Freeman, and Nicole Richie, and hosted by award-winning singers and activists Selena Gomez and Alicia Keys.

Hickman, who has been featured on the Ellen Show and ABC World News, will speak about the success of "Ryan's Recycling Challenge," his campaign to empower others to join him in recycling 300,000 cans and bottles, by May 1, 2018. Any funds raised through the campaign will be donated to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center, in support of rescuing and rehabilitating seals and sea lions.

"Ryan's Recycling Challenge" is hosted by Be A Doer, a free social activism platform that allow campaign hosts to run challenges that directly benefit a charity of their choice.


"Ryan's enthusiasm is electric. His challenge has inspired grandmas and grade schoolers to commit to recycling nearly 100,000 bottles and cans," said John Negron, CEO of Be A Doer.

At the age of three, Hickman started Ryan's Recycling Company, with the goal of keeping cans and bottles from reaching the ocean.

I need your help to spread the word and help make the world a better place. Together we can commit to recycling cans and bottles and raise money to make the biggest impact possible," said Hickman.

Pledges and inspiring stories from across the nation can be seen on Hickman's Be A Doer campaign page. Melissa Mathes, who committed to recycling 50 cans and bottles, wrote, "We fill up our recycle bin every week, more so than our garbage can. Although we don't consume too many things in plastic bottles, we do use cans of sparkling water and some milk and oj bottles. Lots of cardboard too. I think what you are doing is great and bringing awareness to many people who need to be aware!!! And helping others who are aware to do more! Thanks Ryan!"

China's "home of martial arts", Henan province, is a new frontier in the "Belt and Road" strategy

Monks in Henan’s Shaolin Temple

Modern landscape of Hanan province

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, THE UNITED STATES, April 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — China's most populous province boasts the Shaolin temple and is widely recognized as the home of Chinese martial arts. Henan is also an important cradle of the Chinese civilization. With the nation's tremendous development over the past four decades of opening and reform, Henan's position in both China's economy and society has become increasingly important and now looks to become a key logistics centre in China's "Belt and One Road" strategy.

With the theme of "China in the New Era: Wonderful Henan, Global Partnership" the 12th promotional event to present Chinese provinces hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was held at the ministry's Lanting Forum on April 13. More than 500 envoys from 150 countries, representatives of international organizations in China and representatives of the business community, Chinese and foreign experts and scholars as well as media reporters attended the event to share their understanding of the culture and development of Henan Province.

Pakistan reporter from Dawn, Aitizazh Hassan: We are to get cooperation of Henan, we are just visited the province of Henan, and we visited the different places of Henan. We observed the villages. So we were fascinated by many things, and we are heard the economic development of China. We are heard about the globalization of China.

China's first airport-port integrated economic experiment zone, the Zhengzhou Airport Comprehensive Economic Zone was responsible for nearly 300 million smart phone shipments, accounting for more than one-seventh of the world's smart phone users. The experimental zone has become a top destination for registered companies and investment capital. A cross-border, e-commerce comprehensive experimental zone, it has maintained a leading position in the nation with a total import and export volume, with its six special customs supervision areas and nine functional ports, ranking first in the country. Henan has thus become the province with the largest number of designated ports and the most complete functions in China's inland provinces.

Benin Ambassador in China, Simon Adoverland: Benin has great potential for development, especially in the development of basic industries in the past few years. We also know that Henan's industrial development is very good and we hope to develop in-depth cooperation with Henan. Benin also understands the "Belt and Road Initiative" policy and will fully support the "One Belt and One Road" policy. We also hope to strengthen cooperation with Henan. We are very optimistic.

In January, Henan's total value of imports and exports to and from countries along the "Belt and Road" reached 10.62 billion yuan, an increase of 38.1% from the same period last year, and now accounting for 19.8% of the total value of all foreign trade in Henan during the same period, these results highlight Henan's deep integration into the Belt and Road Initiative.

Along with its assimilation of the Belt and Road initiative, Henan province is also active in innovation. Three new "Silk Roads" of "air, land, and online" are being built here. This is driving Henan to the very forefront of opening and reform, bringing more development opportunities for cooperating countries. China's newest region of win-win cooperation is emerging.

Danishka Esterhazy's female driven characters ignite the screen with Talent INC Canada's Alexis Whelan as Ava in the upcoming feature film thriller,'Level 16'.

The best part about working on this film was that it was female-dominant and the female characters had such power and strength… even in adversity”

— Alexis Whelan

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, April 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Talent INC Canada's longtime client, Alexis Whelan stars as Ava in the upcoming feature film, 'Level 16' directed by Danishka Esterhazy.

John Stevens, her mentor for many years, recalls meeting her when she was just 9 years old.

She walked up to me after she had gone on tape for me and shook my hand and looked me in the eye, and said, "Thank you. It's been a pleasure doing business with you"!

"I remember thinking, who the heck does this kid think she is?" said Stevens.

It comes as no surprise to local business owners, Doug Sloan and John Stevens that she has made it this far.

"There was never a question as to whether or not Alexis would make it in the entertainment industry. The only question for us….was when" says Doug Sloan.

We caught up with Alexis, a Richmond Hill native to ask her, "How did you prepare for the audition?"

Alexis smiled and said, "The private coachings I had with John Stevens prior to auditioning really gave me a leg up. I don't believe I would have landed this role without his guidance. Also, there was something unique about this script. I felt connected to the characters immediately. As an actor, you try to not get to get too connected because you don’t want to set yourself up for failure. But there was just something about this project that spoke to me on many levels (pardon the pun!)."

We asked Alexis how she would describe her character, Ava. She told us, "Ava is strong-spirited and assertive. She's not afraid to speak her mind. She likes to be at the top of the social hierarchy for sure. But she also has a softer side, and that contrast is what really makes her character so real. She wears many masks and knows how to meld into any situation."

This is Alexis's feature film debut so we asked her about her experience.

"The best part about working on this film was that it was female-dominant and the female characters had such power and strength… even in adversity," replied the young debutante.

Level 16 has been in development for 10 years. Alexis credits Danishka for creating something so well thought out and brilliantly crafted.

Alexis's mother, Sahar says, "We won't go anywhere else for private coaching, the reason she booked this role was because of her training at Talent INC Canada".

Level 16 is set to premiere at select theatres across Canada later this year.
