Director, writer, producer and businessman George Lucas has a net worth of $3.25 billion. Born and raised in Modesto, California, Lucas initially had his eye on a career in racing cars, but after a potentially fatal accident in high school, Lucas's interests shifted considerably. During his time at Modesto Junior College, Lucas became enthusiastic about photography and filmmaking. He eventually transferred to University of Southern California where he befriended fellow filmmaker Steven Spielberg and won accolades during his post-graduate studies, including a Warner Brothers student scholarship. His 1967 student film, Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB, was eventually made into his 1971 premier full-length feature film, THX 1138. Though it was poorly received, the project led to a more successful venture in American Graffiti, which garnered five Academy Award nominations and grossed $115 million in domestic revenue alone. His biggest box-office hit and what came to seal Lucas as a Hollywood film legend is the epic Star Wars franchise, which has earned well over $5 billion in worldwide revenue from all six films. Though he only directed six films in total, Lucas as acted as producer, executive producer and writer on several films including: Body Heat (1981), Labyrinth (1986), The Land Before Time (1988), and The Indiana Jones film franchise. Additionally, Lucas founded THX, Skywalker Sound, Industrial Light and Magic and LucasArts as subdivisions of his parent company, Lucasfilm Ltd. In 2005, Lucas received The Lifetime Achievement Award from The American Film Institute.
George Walton Lucas, Jr. (born May 14, 1944) is an American film producer, screenwriter, director, and entrepreneur. He is the founder, chairman and chief executive of Lucasfilm. He is best known as the creator of the space opera franchise Star Wars and the archaeologist-adventurer character Indiana Jones. Lucas is one of the American film industry's most financially successful directors/producers, with an estimated net worth of $3.2 billion as of 2011.
George Lucas was born in Modesto, California, the son of Dorothy Ellinore (n'ee Bomberger) and George Walton Lucas, Sr. (1913-1991), who owned a stationery store.
Lucas grew up in the Central Valley town of Modesto and his early passion for cars and motor racing would eventually serve as inspiration for his USC student film 1:42.08, as well as his Oscar-nominated low-budget phenomenon, American Graffiti. Long before Lucas became obsessed with film making, he wanted to be a race-car driver, and he spent most of his high school years racing on the underground circuit at fairgrounds and hanging out at garages. However, a near-fatal accident in his souped-up Autobianchi Bianchina on June 12, 1962, just days before his high school graduation, quickly changed his mind. Instead of racing, he attended Modesto Junior College and later got accepted into a junior college to study anthropology. While taking liberal arts courses, he developed a passion for cinematography and camera tricks. George Lucas graduated from USC in California.
As a child, Lucas never learned to swim, which became a source of embarrassment and frustration as he became older. Lucas has expressed in several interviews that his inability to swim was "the passion that drove me to succeed in filmmaking... [It] gave me the chip on my shoulder that I think was critical to my later success"
During this time, an experimental filmmaker named Bruce Baillie tacked up a bedsheet in his backyard in 1960 to screen the work of underground, avant-garde 16 mm f
