|Of the three, Lucas made the most fundamental changes in film making and the way business was done.|
He is best known as creator of the epic Star Wars saga and the archaeologist-adventurer character Indiana Jones. From tohe served as co-writer and executive producer of all six Star Wars films, as well as director for four of the films.
He also appeared in a cameo role in Star Wars: He is famous for his advances in special effects and filming techniques. His father was mainly of British and Swiss - German heritage and his mother was a member of a prominent Modesto family one of her cousins is the mother of former U.
George Lucas and Indiana His parents sold retail office supplies and owned a walnut ranch in California. His father ran a stationery store and owned a small walnut orchard.
His mother was in poor health, often bedridden, throughout Lucas's childhood. Lucas himself was short and scrawny as a child; his younger sister reportedly fought with other kids who picked on him. His experiences growing up in the sleepy suburb of Modesto and his early passion for cars and motor racing would eventually serve as inspiration for his Oscar-nominated low-budget phenomenon, American Graffiti.
Before young Lucas became obsessed with the movie camera, he attended Thomas Downey High Schoolwhere he was an indifferent student at best.
He was interested in race car driving; he dreamed of becoming a professional race car driver.
For better or worse, that dream was abruptly ended in his early adulthood when on June 12,he crashed his Autobianchi Bianchina in a car accident.
The car was clipped from behind while he tried to make a left turn into his driveway. The car rolled; the racing harness that he had installed snapped, and he was thrown from the car. Had the harness not snapped—and Lucas has said it shouldn't have—he would most likely have been crushed to death by the steering column when the car smashed into a walnut tree.
The force of the impact uprooted the tree. As it was, emergency personnel had difficulty finding a pulse and at first thought him dead. During his recovery, Lucas reevaluated his life and decided to go to college after graduating high school. He enrolled at Modesto Junior Collegewhere he earned an AA degree and developed a passion for cinematography and camera tricks.
For the next few years, Baillie's series, dubbed Canyon Cinematoured local coffeehouses, where art films shared the stage with folksingers and stand-up comedians.
These events became a magnet for the teenage Lucas and his boyhood friend John Plummer. The year-olds began slipping away to San Francisco to hang out in jazz clubs and find news of Canyon Cinema screenings in flyers at the City Lights bookstore.
Already a promising photographer, Lucas became infatuated with these abstract films. At an autocross track, Lucas met his first mentor in the film industry - famed cinematographer Haskell Wexlera fellow aficionado of sleek racing machines. Wexler was impressed by the way the shy teenager handled a camera, cradling it low on his hips to get better angles.
