TOP 4 MOST RENOWN SCI-FI WRITER/DIRECTOR
"STANLEY KUBRICK"

(AUTHOR OF "2001: SPACE ODYSSEY" AND "A.I.")

Stanley Kubrick was an influential American film director, screenwriter and producer. He directed a number of highly acclaimed and sometimes controversial films. Kubrick was noted for the scrupulous care with which he chose his subjects, his slow method of working, the variety of genres in his movies and his reclusiveness about his films and personal life

Artistically, 2001: A Space Odyssey was a radical departure from Kubrick's previous films. It contains only 45 minutes of dialogue, over a running time of over two and a half hours. The dialogue is largely superfluous to the images and music. Nevertheless it outlines the 'story' while presenting mankind as dissociated from itself and its surroundings. Clarke's characters function either as extensions of the story or else as anthropological archetypes. The story and plot are obscure for most of the film's duration and its ambiguous, perplexing ending continues to fascinate contemporary audiences and critics. After this film, Kubrick would never experiment so radically with special effects or narrative form, but the calculated ambiguity of his films remained a trademark for the rest of his career.

THE MOST RENOWN SCI-FI WRITER/DIRECTOR
"GEORGE LUCAS"

(CREATOR OF STAR WARS)

http://www.gameaxis.com/img/blog/2481/Image/GeorgeLucas.jpg

George Walton Lucas, Jr. (born May 14, 1944) is an Academy Award-winning American film director, producer, screenwriter and chairman of Lucasfilm. He is the creator of the epic Star Wars saga and the archaeologist-adventurer character Indiana Jones. Today, Lucas is one of the American film industry's most financially successful independent directors/producers, with an estimated net worth of $3.6 billion

Star Wars proved to be one of the most successful films of all time. During the filming of Star Wars, Lucas waived his up front fee as director and negotiated to own the licensing rights — rights which the studio thought were nearly worthless. This decision earned him hundreds of millions of dollars, as he was able to directly profit from all the licensed games, toys, and collectibles created for the franchise.
