Live, at the Premiere: Red carpet, pre-premiere
It started out as just an idea. Floormates Cody Brotter and Paul Ryan thought it would be funny to make a web series in which they played exaggerated versions of themselves.
When fellow floormates John and Keya jumped on the bandwagon, they helped the idea become a reality.
Thus “Welcome Back, Brotter” was born and with it came 257 facebook fans, a promo, a theme song, and a floor of eager friends willing to help.
After approximately two weeks of writing, shooting and editing, the show was ready to make its debut on to the big screen (by that I mean youtube and John’s tv).
The red carpet premiere was held on the guys side of 11C, outside John and Jamie’s room. The stars strutted down the carpet with Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” blaring in the background.
The show’s basic plot is about two roomates (Cody and Paul) who attend college in Boston and document their (failed) attempts to get with girls and survive freshman year.
Think of it as the college version of Seinfeld mixed with a bit of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Overall verdict? Great success. Sure to please the college audience and good for genuine laughs.
