Video: "The Filmmaker’s Voice: George Lucas"

By: Dominic Jones

A fantastic new video essay created by editor Alejandro Villarreal offers a new overview of Lucas' career, from his earliest student films through THX 1138 and American Graffiti and all the way up to the Star Wars films.  The video essay uses archival interviews with Lucas to narrate his own career and the decisions that led him to make the films he did.  Check it out for yourself below,

Villarreal explains his motivations for creating the video essay in the video description, saying, 
"I made this video essay to provide a window into the mind of a socially conscious filmmaker who is explored ideas about our common existence and tried to present them to in new, interesting ways to audiences. His goal was never to make an escapist film solely for the special effects and explosions, but it was to give his audiences a greater understanding of our shared humanity."
