Utica to be setting for next educational film

Posted by wlpo on February 9, 2013

While teenage girls are already planning for this year’s prom, an area firefighter and alderman is getting ready for prom 2014.  And no, he’s not picking out a tux.

Rodney Perez, the man behind the educational film Operation Prom-ise, says he’s been busy turning the effort into a non-profit, creating a board and raising money for the next film.

The Utica and Starved Rock area will be setting.  Perez wants to stage a two-car crash on prom night and some how work in a van full of women taking part in a bachelorette party.  Perez uses high school students from LP, St. Bede, Putnam County and Hall.

It would be the third film for the program.  He says the community viewing of the film would still be held at LP High School.

A interview with Perez is available at the AM 1220 WLPO news page.
