Filmmaker George Lucas's devotion to timeless storytelling and cutting-edge innovation has resulted in some of the most successful and beloved films of all time, including the Star Wars saga and the Indiana Jones franchise, while also pioneering new digital standards for sophistication in film visuals and sound and inspiring generations of young people to follow their imagination and dreams. Lucas serves on the board of the Film Foundation and the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts Advisory Board, and he will build the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, emphasizing American illustrative, digital, cinematic, and animation art as an avenue for the exploration of the great storytelling history, populist works, and artistic innovation of the past 150 years.
