A gifted storyteller in the epic tradition, a masterful director and editor, and an innovative leader in the field of visual effects and production techniques, George Lucas has made an enormous contribution to the art and culture of our time. The Cinema of George Lucas presents new insights into the work of this innovative and influential filmmaker, whose groundbreaking technical achievements and creation of enduring modern mythologies have forever changed both film and science fiction.

Drawing on exclusive new interviews, oral histories, and unprecedented access to the Lucasfilm archives, including documents such as shooting schedules and production notes, author Marcus Hearn analyzes Lucas's personal journey as a director over four decades—beginning with his student work—while also delving into his projects as a writer, an editor, and a producer. He also discusses Lucas's many other accomplishments in the film industry, including the formation of Industrial Light & Magic, Skywalker Sound, and LucasArts.

The book is lavishly illustrated with many images that have never or rarely been seen, such as stills from Lucas's student films made at the University of Southern California, material from the director's cut of his early science-fiction film THX 1138, and production shots and behind-the-scene photos from, among other films, the very first Star Wars film, the beloved classic, American Graffiti, the Indiana Jones adventures—and the forthcoming Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith (to be released on May 19, 2005).

With its wealth of new information and compelling illustrations, The Cinema of George Lucas is an essential volume for every fan and film enthusiast.

More than 500 illustrations, including 435 plates in full color.
