The plaza between the Flowers and Centennial halls is almost not walkable today as large filming equipment surrounded the LBJ monument for the movie shoot “That’s What I’m Talking About.” The movie is a “spiritual sequel,” in the sense that it follows a group of young students again, but is in no relation to the story of the ’90s cult classic “Dazed and Confused.” Film producer Ginger Sledge said the action takes place in 1980 and shows the first four days of the main character as a freshman college student.

“He is also a member of a baseball team, he’s a pitcher, he’s coming to this baseball team and the upperclassmen are kinda showing him the ropes,” Sledge said.

Sledge also said that they chose Texas State due to it’s “perfect size:” not too small not too big. In addition, almost all of the film crew is from Central Texas, so they wanted to keep it a Texas proud production. San Marcos and Texas State will serve as the film’s setting in East Texas at Sam Houston and Southeast Texas universities. The shooting of the film will continue for another week in the area. The motion picture is set to premiere next fall.
