- Schindler's List
- Forrest Gump. . . & many more
If there was an inner sanctum to big time motion picture making outside Hollywood, LucasFilm was the epicenter.
What was it like to work there as one of those names in that endless list of credits at the end of major motion pictures?
Why did the innovations there happen in Marin County, California, not New York or Los Angeles?
Wasn’t Hollywood the motion picture capital of the world?
How did George Lucas, a “D” student from Modesto, California become the biggest director and movie mogul of all time?
And since few of us will ever reach the heights of the famous filmmaker, how can one lead a creative life while still making a good living?
