1967 film student George Lucas has writer's block trying to finish his "Space Wheat" script, until a beautiful fellow student with a familiar hairstyle teaches him that the best stories are in plain sight.
Think of this as "Austin Powers:Episode One" A nine minute spoof of Notting hill and Austin Powers. Set six years before the events of the original Austin Powers. Mr. Evil, younger, not yet... See full summary »

In 1967, writer's-blocked USC film student George Lucas has only three days to finish his script or he won't graduate. He ends up falling for a girl named Marian (with her hair done up in buns on the sides of her head) who encourages him to write what he knows and feels. Written by

This short implies that George Lucas got the inspiration of the Howard the Duck movie from a pet duck named Howard. This is false as Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik were the actual creators of the Howard the Duck comic. George Lucas only served as a producer for the movie adaption and had no involvement with the creation of the character. See more »
I'm just beginning to think that space oats isn't the answer.
Well, maybe you weren't meant to write agricultural space tragedies.

Exceptionally witty parody of "Shakespeare in Love" that has George Lucas struggling to complete his "Star Wars" script in order to pass his film class at USC. After meeting and falling in love with Marion, a fan of his earlier student films, he takes her advice and finishes the screenplay by "writing what he knows". Throughout the course of the film we get to see George's REAL inspirations for all our favorite Star Wars characters and plot twists, and the audience even gets the inside scoop on what motivated Lucas to executive produce "Howard the Duck"! This is certainly one of the best (short) spoof films ever.
