Star Wars was released in 1977 by 20th Century Fox and went on to become one of the most successful and universally adored films of all time. But what is it that made Star Wars such a successful and exhilarating cinematic experience? Was it down to the film's groundbreaking visual effects? Perhaps the age-old story of good versus evil captured the imagination of its global audience? What role did marketing and merchandising play in influencing its reception?
Now, over two days, Gary Kurtz (producer of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and American Graffiti,) and vice president of 20th Century Fox International Sandy Lieberson (producer credits include Performance and Rita, Sue and Bob Too) will examine the anatomy of Star Wars and offer first-hand insights into the development, production and marketing that made this film a defining moment in the history of cinema.
Paying particular attention to the film's origins and inspirations, script, visual and audio development, special effects, editing, pre- and post-production, marketing and distribution, Gary and Sandy will explore how Star Wars emerged from the mist of 1970s American new wave cinema while offering an expert point of view on the film's enduring legacy.
The course will take place at the Renoir Cinema in London on 14-15 May 2011.
