Website Purpose and Publisher Information

My name is Hayden. I go to Holman Middle School. I made this website because I had to do a Research Project on someone famous. I picked George Lucas as my subject because I wanted to learn more about his life other than making the Star Wars franchise and the Indiana Jones series.

Description Paragraph
Early life: Before the ideas

George Walton Lucas, Jr. was born on May 14, 1944 in Modesto, California. George has two sisters, Ann and Kathleen.  He spent his childhood with comic books. He liked reading "Buck Rodgers" and "Flash Gordon." Another thing George loved was car racing. The thing that made him not like it that much was that he got in a car accident. The car accident had happened 3 days before George was going to graduate high school. He then went to the Southern University of Florida to study film. He got to go there because his grades were high enough.

Problem-Solution Paragraph
Film Life before/the start of Star Wars

The first movie George released was THX-1138. George directed it but it didn't go that well. In the box office it supposivly (failed). He had lost the supporters he once had and knew he needed a big response. So he then released the movie American Graffiti. American Graffiti got the viewers and supporters of him to come back to give him confidence after THX-1138. After American Graffiti he wanted to create something out of this world that hasn't been done before. He thought of Star Wars. He wanted it to be amazing graphics with amazing SyFy objects that made the movie really stand out. So he made Lucasfilm Ltd., LucasArts, and more.
