    George Lucas
    Founder and chairman, Lucasfilm

    Lucas, 67, has pushed technological barriers as a filmmaker and entrepreneur for nearly four decades. He used Star Wars to launch Industrial Light & Magic into a cutting-edge special-effects company; was the first to make and show movies using digital capture and presentation; and has won more than two dozen Academy Awards for innovations, including the development of image-based modeling software. Now Lucas has employed state-of-the-art visual effects to create airborne battle scenes for Red Tails and significantly raised the bar on digital 3D conversions for the February rerelease of Star Wars.
