George Lucas’s Biography

He was raised on a ranch in Modesto, California, a place to grow nuts. His father owned a store selling desks and had three siblings.During his teens he studied at Downey High School and was a fan of car racing, he even planned to become a professional racing driver. However, he suffered a terrible accident with his car shortly after graduating from high school, was hospitalized for several weeks and was about to die. This accident definitely changed his way of seeing life. He decided to go to Modesto Junior College, where he took subjects such as anthropology, sociology and literature, among many others. He also started filming with an 8mm camera. During this time, Lucas and his friend John Plummer became interested in the movie Canyon Cinema: screenings of filmmakers associated with the underground and the avant-garde, such as Jordan Belson, Stan Brakhage and Bruce Conner.

Lucas and Plummer also started watching classic films from European cinema, such as À bout de souffle, by Jean-Luc Godard, Jules and Jim by François Truffaut and 8½ by Federico Fellini. “That’s when George really began to explore,” Plummer said. Thanks to his interest in motor racing Lucas met the renowned cinematographer Haskell Wexler who also shared his love for racing. Wexler, who would later work with Lucas on several occasions, was impressed by the boy’s talent: “George had a very good eye and thought in a very visual way”.

Lucas moved to the University of Southern California (USC), where he studied at the School of Cinematographic Arts. USC was one of the first universities in the United States to have a school dedicated to film education. During his years at USC, Lucas shared the dorm room with Randall Kleiser. On campus he also forged friendships with colleagues such as Walter Murch, Hal Barwood and John Milius, among others. This group of friends was known on campus as The Dirty Dozen (a reference to the film of the same name, released in 1967 and directed by Robert Aldrich); the twelve would achieve some success in the Hollywood film industry. Lucas also became a good friend of a prominent student on campus, with whom he would later collaborate with Indiana Jones: Steven Spielberg. Lucas was strongly influenced by the Film Expression course taught by the filmmaker Lester Novros and grouped the non-narrative elements of the filmic form as color, light, movement, space, time. Another inspiration was the Serbian filmmaker (and dean of the USC Film Department) Slavko Vorkapich, a film theorist who made large montage sequences for Hollywood studios such as MGM, RKO and Paramount. Vorkapich taught the autonomous natural kinematic form, and emphasized the unique dynamic quality of movement and kinetic energy inherent in movies.
