George Lucas Quotes on Film making

I like racing. I love the speed and I’m a very kinetic person in terms of filmmaking. I love the movement of film more than anything else.


As the workplace becomes more specialized, from offices to medical centers to factories, teams of people must accomplish their work by collaborating with each other. In my work in film making, we need talented individuals with technical skills, but their abilities to communicate and work with others are just as valuable.


In 3-D film making, I can take images and manipulate them infinitely, as opposed to taking still photographs and laying them one after the other. I move things in all directions. It’s such a liberating experience.


I was going to go to a four-year college and be an anthropologist or to an art school and be an illustrator when a friend convinced me to learn photography at the University of Southern California. Little did I know it was a school that taught you how to make movies! It had never occurred to me that I’d ever have any interest in filmmaking.

George Lucas Quotes about Focus

You really have to focus on what you’re doing and just plow ahead no matter what hurdles are thrown in front of you.


Always remember, your focus determines your reality.


There are a lot of movies that are badly made that I love, and there are a lot of movies that are just beautifully made but I don’t like them. And critics have a tendency – that’s all they focus on, which is, “I like it. I don’t like it. It’s good. It’s bad.”


Learning to make films is very easy. Learning what to make films about is very hard. What you’ve really got to do is focus on learning as much about life, and about various aspects of it first.

George Lucas Quotes about Success

I thought it was too wacky for the general public. On his original opinion of his movie’s chances for success, 1997.


You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don’t have that kind of feeling for what it is you’re doing, you’ll stop at the first giant hurdle.


If you want to be successful in a particular field or endeavor, I think perseverance is one of the key qualities. It’s very important that you find something that you care about, that you have a deep passion for, because you’re going to have to devote a lot of your life to it.


My first six years in the business were hopeless. There are a lot of times when you sit and you say “Why am I doing this? I’ll never make it. It’s just not going to happen. I should go out and get a real job, and try to survive.”

George Lucas Quotes about Dreams

Obviously, people have a lot of different dreams of where America should be, and where it should fit into things. Obviously, very few of them are compatible, and very few of them are very compatible with the laws of nature.


We were always dreaming of how it was going to be.


I regret not the things I have done, only those I have yet to do.

George Lucas Quotes Always remember

George Lucas Quotes on Star Wars

I like Star Wars, it’s fun and I enjoy doing it. But it’s definitely not my life. I’m a bigger movie fan than I am Star Wars fan. I like making movies.


The story being told in ‘Star Wars’ is a classic one. Every few hundred years, the story is retold…


Maybe you’re here for a reason. Maybe I was here to do Star Wars and that’s it. I’m living on borrowed time.


It was the money from ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Jaws’ that allowed the theatres to build their multiplexes, which allowed an opening up of screens.

George Lucas Quotes on Goals

I wanted Yoda to be the traditional kind of character you find in fairy tales and mythology. And that character is usually a frog or a wizened old man on the side of the road. The hero is going down the road and meets this poor and insignificant person. The goal or lesson is for the hero to learn to respect everybody and to pay attention to the poorest person because that’s where the key to his success will be.

In the end, the most important thing to me is that I’ve raised three kids.

Motivational Quotes by George Lucas

It’s very important not to do what your peers think you should do, not do what your parents think, your teachers or even your culture. Do what’s inside of you.

No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.

George Lucas Quotes about Technology

The first movies, they just put up a camera and had a train come into a train station, and everybody was amazed. That was sort of all technology.


When people talk to me about the digital divide, I think of it not so much about who has access to what technology as about who knows how to create and express themselves in the new language of the screen. If students aren’t taught the language of sound and images, shouldn’t they be considered as illiterate as if they left college without being able to read and write?


Our system of education is locked in a time capsule. You want to say to the people in charge, ‘You’re not using today’s tools! Wake up!’


Most artists, most painters, even composers would want to come back and redo their work. They’ve got a new perspective on it, they’ve got more resources, they have better technology, and they can fix or finish the things that were never done.

George Lucas Quotes about Writing

It wasn’t long after I began writing Star Wars that I realized the story was more than a single film could hold. As the saga of the Skywalkers and Jedi Knights unfolded, I began to see it as a tale that could take at least nine films to tell – three trilogies – and I realized, in making my way through the back story and after story, that I was really setting out to make the middle story.

If students aren’t taught the language of sound and images, shouldn’t they be considered as illiterate as if they left college without being able to read and write?


Although I write screenplays, I don’t think I’m a very good writer. I’m very interested in studying cultures and social issues, but as an academic I don’t think I would have been too successful.


It took me three, four years, to get from my first film to my second film, banging on doors, trying to get people to give me a chance. Writing, struggling, with no money in the bank, working as an editor on the side. Working as a cameraman on the side. Getting little jobs, eking out a living. Trying to stay alive, and pushing a script that nobody wanted.

George Lucas Quotes on Dialogue

I’m aware that dialogue isn’t my strength. I use it as a device. I don’t particularly like dialogue which is part of the problem.


He took me from not being able to write a word in terms of writing screenplays to being the king of wooden dialogue.


I think that Lethal Weapon-style dialogue is overused, it’s a necessary aspect of high action films where you have to have the smart retort. You have to say “I’ll be back baby” and stuff. It’s not my style.


I’d be the first person to say I can’t write dialogue. My dialogue is very utilitarian and is designed to move things forward. I’m not Shakespeare. It’s not designed to be poetic.

George Lucas Quotes on Luck

In my experience, there’s no such thing as luck.


Good luck has its storms.


No film ever ends up exactly as you would like it to, but with minor exceptions, THX came out pretty much as I had visualized it, thanks to some excellent assistance — and a whole lot of luck.

George Lucas Quotes on Culture

Before I became a film major, I was very heavily into social science, I had done a lot of sociology, anthropology, and I was playing in what I call social psychology, which is sort of an offshoot of anthropology/sociology – looking at a culture as a living organism, why it does what it does.


It’s very important not to do what your peers think you should do, not do what your parents think, your teachers or even your culture. Do what’s inside of you.


Although I write screenplays, I don’t think I’m a very good writer. I’m very interested in studying cultures and social issues, but as an academic I don’t think I would have been too successful.

George Lucas Quotes about Film

I’ve always tried to be aware of what I say in my films, because all of us who make motion pictures are teachers – teachers with very loud voices.


The secret to film is that it’s an illusion.

Learning to make films is very easy. Learning what to make films about is very hard.

George Lucas Quotes about Photography

I wanted to be a car mechanic and I wanted to race cars and the idea of trying to make something out of my life wasn’t really a priority. But the accident allowed me to apply myself at school. I got great grades. Eventually I got very excited about anthropology and about social sciences and psychology, and I was able to push my photography even further and eventually discovered film and film schools.


I loved photography and everybody said it was a crazy thing to do because in those days nobody made it into the film business. I mean, unless you were related to somebody there was no way in.

I wanted to transfer to an art school, and ended up going to the University of Southern California. They had a cinematography school, and I said “Well, that’s sort of like photography, maybe that will be interesting.” And once I started in that department, I found what it was that I loved and was good at.


For ‘Star Wars’ I had to develop a whole new idea about special effects to give it the kind of kinetic energy I was looking for. I did it with motion-control photography.
