I'm like George Lucas, bringing together a creative tea

I’m like George Lucas, bringing together a creative team that will come up with a unique, well-crafted product.
Mitch Kapor
George Lucas wanted this moving camera for all of the photography in Star Wars. He was willing to take a risk with the concepts that I advanced with regard to ways for doing that.
John Dykstra
Way back at the beginning, I went to see George Lucas when he first came to London for ‘Star Wars.’ I met him months before they started, and he didn’t ask me to do the picture at all. But the actor whom he had employed to play Wedge didn’t work out for some reason.
Denis Lawson
I guess I feel like it’s a gift to meet those talented artists like George Lucas and Oliver Stone, Spike Lee and Richard Kelly. Even if it’s a small role, it’s a gift to be working that closely with them.
Bai Ling
‘The Clone Wars’ was rooted in George Lucas and his characters.
Dave Filoni
I mean listen, ultimately I’m positive George Lucas was inspired by ‘Dune’ when he made ‘Star Wars.’ I don’t know if that’s sacrilegious to talk about, but there are a lot of similarities in some areas, so you could tell he was definitely influenced by that.
Greig Fraser
George Lucas was casting about and had heard favourable things about my work in Clockwork Orange and asked me to come in, which of course I did even though no one knew what the film was about!
David Prowse
The movie I’ve seen a million times – wait, that’s not possible – my favorite movie of all times is ‘The Empire Strikes Back,’ directed by Irvin Kershner, executive-produced by the great George Lucas and stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, James Earl Jones.
Donald Faison
I was a great admirer of George Lucas’ work.
Richard Marquand
That aesthetic of the Star Wars universe: the do-it-yourself, hotrod ethic that George Lucas exported from his childhood, is exactly the same kind of soul behind what we do and build for the show. It may not look pretty, but it gets the job done.
Adam Savage
I’ve always dreamed that George Lucas would call me one day and ask me to be in one of the ‘Star Wars’ films.
Ming-Na Wen
I’m no actor. And I wasn’t like George Lucas or Spielberg, making home movies as a teenager, either. But I would go back and watch certain movies again and again. By the time I saw ‘The Graduate’ I was aware of how these amazing stories could be told.
Nancy Meyers
I forget who said it, but there’s that saying: ‘Films are never finished, they’re abandoned.’ There’s always something you think you can improve on, but I don’t think you should try. George Lucas started doing it, and didn’t stop. You can tinker indefinitely, and it doesn’t necessarily make it better.
Mike Flanagan
You’re in a profession in which absolutely everybody is telling you their opinion, which is different. That’s one of the reasons George Lucas never directed again.
Francis Ford Coppola
Perhaps the most significant thing George Lucas did in creating ‘Star Wars’ was to fictionalize the Tao – to spark a universe where we can talk about the Force in objective terms and show it in direct action.
Matthew Stover
My agent set up a meeting with George Lucas. They were casting in England.
David Prowse
Jim Henson once allowed me to visit the Muppets on set and spent an entire day showing me how he and the other puppeteers performed Kermit and all the characters! After that, I was lucky enough to work with both George Lucas and Steven Spielberg on many fun animation projects and learned so much from them.
Paul Dini
