George Lucas on Art, Business, Leadership, and Life

Wearing a three-piece suit, George Lucas reclined back alongside Ben Mankiewicz to discuss his career.  The conversation opened with a focus on the way that Lucas structured some of his early business deals.  At age 27, he decided to do business on his own.  Mankiewicz probed, “what made you think you could do it on your own.”  Lucas: “Well, that’s what 27 year olds think.  At least those who are going anywhere…”

The segment included a few “sizzle rolls” that showed the breadth of Lucas’s work and the array of special effects his affiliated companies have pioneered.
