Lucas Talks Red Tails & More With USA Today

Posted By Eric on January 4, 2012

USA Today's Marco R. della Cava posted a seven-minute video interview with George Lucas recorded at Skywalker Ranch. The article accompanying the video includes several highlights from the conversation, including this:

His passion for special effects:

"The reason I've invested so much time and money (creating Industrial Light & Magic, a premier special-effects house) is because art is technology. In the '60s, you were at the end of the (Lawrence of Arabia director) David Lean era, where you'd have 10,000 extras in a scene. That was getting too expensive. The norm became, 'Oh, I have a movie, it's set five years ago, has seven actors in it and we'll shoot on the streets.' So I could tell even then that if we pushed the technology we'd have so many more stories we could tell."

Check out the interview below, courtesy of USATODAY.com.
