ILM Reports

I have a stack of ILM reports which were in the sleeve of one of the binders. The binders were supposed to be red and green, but mine were red and yellow.

I sort of assume these ILM reports have been around and seen by folks.

The collection of reports covers Nov. 76 - Apr. 77... And remember -- Apr. 77 is just a short beat away from the film's final release in May, 77.

As I post these pages, you'll see how thorough George and ILM was about every little detail. Reading them, you'll have to ask yourself whether all these stories folks put forth about meeting with George during this period could have happened, or if they are imaginary fantasies.

From the call sheets and production report, you should have realized STAR WARS was not an easy shoot.

From the ILM reports, you'll see how detailed and how technically innovative STAR WARS was.
