In 2005 we followed around a group of Baton Rougians in their weekly lives and recorded their on-goings. What set these people aside from all others was their enthusiastic love for four hours of music and dancing on Thursday nights. What happens on Thursday nights on Baton Rouge you might ask? Nothing short of a cultural phenomenon. Since a cold Thanksgiving night in 2000 DJ Bird (Chris Culotta) has been giving the people of Baton Rouge a release from their daily lives through the power of music and dance (and some cool stage lights). Those people in turn showcased their love for the decade of excess with creative dress and action. Our film JUST WHAT I NEEDED documents these interesting individuals as well as detailing a history of STAR 80 (aka: 80s night) and giving a unique view of the city of Baton Rouge.
Four years and some awards later we are bringing JUST WHAT I NEEDED to you via the magic of the internets. Watch and enjoy!
