When 21-year-old college every-man Jason Hughes wakes up late for class following a rowdy night, he’s confronted with two unexpected visitors: first, his girlfriend Becca, who dumps him over his increasingly reckless behavior; then, his little sister, Jenny, who pops in so that Jason can help her celebrate her 18th birthday.
With a grant from the National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse, students from LSU’s Screen Arts Program made Only The Good as a semester-long class project. Working with Professional-in-Residence Glen Pitre, himself an internationally renowned, award-winning filmmaker, twenty-six Advanced Production students were each assigned specific crew positions, from boom operator to make-up artist, second assistant camera person to production accountant.
Shooting on campus and off, week by week students practiced the skills of their specialty while also absorbing the general procedures, terminology, and best practices of professional motion picture production. Now, the finished film is being distributed to high schools and colleges nationwide to help spread the message that the dangers of drug addiction can touch anyone.
