I get this.
That being said, working on star wars has been so much fun, and ive got 2 episodes to go.
The stories are so great. And the director loves telling them.
He told us stories of how, when he got this job, that Lucas gave him a list of classic films to watch, and so many are shot by shot of star wars. One being Swiss family Robinson, which contained this scene:
which supposedly inspired this scene:
He also told a a story this last time that I really enjoyed. Back when they were doing season 2, there was a fight sequence, and Lucas was unhappy with the way it was written.
To show what he wanted, he sat there with the director of the cartoon show, and took scenes from Black Hawk Down, Battle Of The Bulge, Saving Private Ryan, etc, and cut them into what he was looking for. I just love that.
