"George Lucas lives on a hill in Mill Valley, Marin County, California. He is currently in the final year of his 3-year project THX-1138, a science fiction film which is no 2001 and not Planet of the Apes." Jeff Berner
First and only issue of this ill-fated magazine that sought to cover film projects and media techniques in the San Francisco Bay area. I suppose by luck of location George Lucas and his THX-1138 were given the first two pages. The 24 year old Lucas provides cinematography details on the film as well as his thoughts on the state of film in general. The interveiw by Jeff Berner also includes Lucas' hope to do a "Viet war" film titled Apocalypse Now as well as a rock musical about 1954. While tracking the history of early Lucas interviews is rather difficult, this magazine is one of, if not the earliest interview of his career. Lucas was initially set to direct Apocalypse Now (1979 / Martin Sheen) but the reigns were handed over to producer Francis Ford Coppola after the success of Star Wars and the obvious unavailability of Lucas. An important early, but post-School interview with Lucas on his projects and career. OCLC locates only three copies (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Northwestern and Utah State).
