Students at Brooke High School played host to its first ever movie premiere today.
Let it Rip tells the story of Wheeler College of Albany, a school with a long history of failure and bad PR campaigns. The school was named after the inventor of toilet paper.
The film follows Mumford Hatfield who was hired to film a new commercial for their failing enrollment rate.
Produced by Marshall films, Let it Rip is a Office style mockumentary film featuring students and teachers of Brooke High School with the help of theater teacher Nathan Marshall.
The students premiered the movie in front of classmates this afternoon and will also show it Saturday night at 7 PM in the auditorium.
"It was a blast, we had a great time and all the students here had a great time, too. It's going to be fun. I think they're all excited for it and I think they're going to have a good time," says Junior Caleb Eisengwood.
The idea of the movie came about when Marshall asked his students if they wanted to make a movie. After a resounding yes, they began filming in December at Bethany College.
The idea of the title came from working with John Zumpetta from Ohio Valley Tonight who would always say "Let It Rip!"
After hours and hours of editing, the movie was finally complete and even accepted into the West Virginia Film Makers Film Festival this weekend.
Students involved in the theater club found this as a great experience especially being a part of something this big in high school.
"I am really excited I have been waiting for this to come out and I hope everyone comes and watches it its great and I'm so excited to see the reaction from everyone," Senior says Lindsey Willis.
