It’s not every day that you get to meet an actor and writer who is recognised across the land and indeed across a number of other lands, including Canada and New Zealand.

We Are Chester chat to Chester-based actor Ian Puleston-Davies about his current and future projects and what he thinks of the place he calls home.

Ian, who was born and brought up in North Wales, is well known for playing a dazzling range of on screen roles, the latest of which saw him play a multiple murder suspect in ITV crime drama Marcella.

King Thistle

Other roles have ranged from builder Owen Armstrong in Coronation Street and Lagrathorn in ITV costume drama Beowulf to the slightly surreal role of the voice of King Thistle in children’s show Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom.

He’ll be on our screens again later this year with detective drama Maigret and he’ll also be jetting…

Contacting Twitter Support is Like Getting Blood From a Stone!

Ah, the trials and tribulations of trying to make contact with Twitter, it’s probably easier building a time machine and taking a holiday through history, now really, it probably is!

Many of you reading this blog will know that I founded the Blazing Minds website back in 2008 along with this was the Twitter account, aptly named Blazing Minds as well, and other social networking accounts to tie in with the Award Winning website.

Almost nine weeks ago (during the typing of this post) I was told that my tweets weren’t appearing in the Twitter Timeline and this, in turn, led to tweets not being found when doing live events or tweet chats when using a hash tag.

Very strange, so I went through the channels with Twitter and contacted them via their help website and submitted a ticket.

A week went by and nothing, not even an automated email from them, then another week and another. On the fourth week, I contacted them again and submitted a request to them, still nothing.

I popped on to Twitter and contacted them via their @Support account, still nothing, time has dragged on and after several attempts and nine weeks later still nothing, no help, no response, nada!

Seriously folks is this any way to run a help service? I’ve been a Twitter user since the early days of Twitter and for them to not give a damn about someone that has been using and promoting them via the tweeting over the years is disgusting.

I did at one point manage to get in touch with someone at Twitter via their email, but sadly they wasn’t much help and replied with, “It’s the search algorithms that Twitter uses”, yeah right!

So what next with Twitter?

Well, there isn’t much I can do, I can keep trying to get some response from Twitter Support and hope that at some point they answer some of my tweets to them.

 

Entering in to the World of Film on IMDB

Many of you that follow my award-winning website, Blazing Minds, will know that for many years I have been reviewing events, movies, working with some great celebs and photographing them as well.

You may have also seen me mention in a few articles that I have been working Behind The Scenes on a few upcoming movies.

I’m now pleased to announce that after working on several projects, I am now listed on IMDB and have also moved in to the world of film making with my first major credit (for me anyway) of Assistant Director on Dene Michael’s new video for his song “Hold Me Know”.

Don’t worry, I’m still going to be doing a lot of work with Blazing Minds and keeping that going for your entertainment needs.

So I would love it if you could all stop by another Twitter I have for this movie in to film making and give it a follow, @KarenNWoodham.

Massive thanks to everyone for all your support, I’ll also be using this blog for all the updates on what I’m up to with Best Picture Film and Video Star UK, so keep your eyes peeled for any new.

We Are Chester writer and real ale aficionado Dyfan Morris reports on his first visit to the Cheshire Beer Festival. This popular event took place at Chester Racecourse and gave fans of ales, beer, ciders and perrys the chance to enjoy taking their pick from a wide variety of casks, while enjoying the company of likeminded people and live music to keep their toes a-tapping.

Another Sell-Out Success for the Cheshire Beer Festival

It was more than a little pleasing to walk into CAMRA’s 2015 Cheshire Beer Festival from the darkness of a winter’s evening at Chester Racecourse. In contrast to the wintry and silent ground, we were greeted by a cosy gathering of likeminded revellers…

Cloverfield has a sequel!!

What a surprise to wake up to this morning as almost from nowhere Paramount Pictures have been quietly making a sequel to the 2008 movie, Cloverfield.

You remember the movie, the one where a group of friends venture deep into the streets of New York on a rescue mission during a rampaging monster attack!

The first movie was made on an estimated budget of $25,000,000 and has become a cult movie for fans of the rampaging creature.

Yep, that’s the one, there was news of a sequel to the movie coming out, with IMDB having a page calling it “Untitled Cloverfield Sequel”, but now we know the name, “10 Cloverfield Lane”.

An overview of Pierce Brosnan #NoEscape

FromPage2Screen.Com

Pierce Brosnan through the years

NO ESCAPE is the intense, action-packed thriller, where an American business man (Owen Wilson) and his family suddenly find themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, frantically looking for a safe escape.

Pierce Brosnan plays Hammond, a British expatriate who comes to the rescue when the Dwyer family face a violent uprising is Southeast Asia. To mark the release, we explore Brosnan’s incredibly varied acting career and his iconic filmography. Of course with a filmography as long and impressive as Pierces, there is no way to cover every great role or great film he has appeared in (do you remember his small appearance in the classic film The Long Good Friday.) But do take a quick look over some highlights from the big screen.

NO ESCAPE is available to download on Digital HD on the 28th December 2015 and on Blu-ray™ and
