Indiana Smith and the Story Conference

10 Mar

Just a quick post to share this amazing link.

In 1978 George Lucas had just released Star Wars. Steven Spielberg had released Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Jaws. These two men were Hollywood.

They called up Lawrence Kasdan and invited him to a story conference about this next movie they were working on. They wanted him to write the script. They needed to work out the story together. This link will lead you to a transcript of that story conference. That story conference lead to Raiders of the Lost Ark.

If you like Indiana Jones, and are even half interested in how movies get made, or just want a glimpse into the minds of Lucas and Spielberg, this is amazing.

    I am a huge fan of the whole Indiana series and am excited to look at the transcript. Anyone who would give these movies a bad review should read this document to see what genius was involved.
