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 »
My script is now complete. Soon I will rule the industry, and you'll still be writing line one of whatever it's called.

Creative Film. Would have liked to see more of it.
This was a great short. It was creative and funny and I especially enjoyed all the parodies of Star Wars and other works by Lucas, including Howard the Duck. Would this have worked just as a regular feature film? I'm not sure, but all 8 minutes of it is very enjoyable.
