Overview

The inside story of George Lucas, his secretive company, and how they revolutionized filmmaking. In the process, they made computer history. Rubin — a former member of the Lucasfilm Computer Division — interviewed key personnel (past and present) from Lucasfilm, Pixar and Zoetrope, to reconstruct the events in Hollywood, in Silicon Valley, and at Lucas' private realm in Marin County, California, to track the genesis of modern media. With a small team of scientists, Lucas played a central role in the universe of entertainment technologies we see everyday. Re-live the birth of Pixar, digital video editing, videogame avatars, THX sound, and a host of other icons of the media age. Rubin weaves a tale of friendships, a love of movies, and the incessant forward movement of technology. This is a compelling story that takes the reader into an era of technological innovation never before explored.
