Trivia

Was originally just a way to have Lucas get use to using a camera. The teacher gave him a minute of film and said "here, test the camera" not expecting anything of value to be made from it. Lucas then made the short and vastly exceeded the expectations of his teachers and peers. See more »

"Look at Life" pioneered rapid photo montage??? Uh, no...
17 May 2002 | by (SF, CA) – See all my reviews

The user who commented that Lucas's LOOK AT LIFE film pioneered rapid montage obviously hasn't seen the films of Bruce Conner or Joseph Cornell. These were the true pioneers. Check their films out instead. Lucas has in interviews given huge credit to and cited great influence from the actual pioneering American independent and experimental filmmakers like James Broughton, Sidney Peterson, Stan Brakhage, Bruce Conner, and Kenneth Anger. These films were shown/taught to him in his school days at USC and he had been exposed to them as a part of the vibrant '60s San Francisco independent film scene.

George is no slouch of a filmmaker, certainly, and pioneered things in his own right that are big parts of today's film and pop culture, but let's not give him credit that's not due him, especially when people like Broughton and the others I've mentioned have consistently been ignored by mainstream film enthusiasts.
