That's not what I said. My point was how-- well, as George said, himself, in a ton of Star Wars documentaries;
"There was no special effects back then. We had to do it all ourselves. And when I went back to ILM and they hadn't done the shots I needed---" I
forget the rest, but he's said that on more than one occassion...
So for a generation to come of age and be on that frontier, the shadow of Lucas and co is the way in which its now become to pursue "the accepted
thing to aspire as they did", but they didn't aspire, they WORKED their butts off, which paid off, and now they pull all the levers!!!
Sadly, many go about aspiring like it means something, and many wonder of the sameness of the movies this last decade...
I was part of that crowd of wannabes and its damn-near impossible to defend to the Lucas Empire now....
