The creator of the epic science fiction series Star Wars and a joint creator of the Indiana Jones adventure series, George Lucas has combined a gift for high-drama storytelling with groundbreaking visual and sound effects to achieve Hollywood superstardom. Lucas studied filmmaking at the University of Southern California. One of his first feature films was American Graffiti, a 1973 coming-of-age drama that drew upon his early passion for automobile culture. In part because of its commercial success, Lucas began to develop the first Star Wars, which after its 1977 debut surpassed Steven Spielberg's Jaws to become the highest-grossing movie at that time. Andres Serrano's portrait shows the film director in 1999, the year that Stars Wars: The Phantom Menace was released.
