"For the classic trilogy," explains Knoll, "a high contrast film of the text was laid out flat on a long lightbox (a transparent table lit from underneath), with a camera set up on rails running parallel to the lightbox. The camera was controlled by a computer to make sure the scrolling speed remained constant: that's what we call a 'motion-control camera'. To create the illusion of text disappearing on the horizon, the special effects guys tilted the camera at an angle and ran it down the track. A star field was later optically added to complete the footage." This effective procedure was used to create the opening of all three classic movies.
We hate to say it, Chewie, but your loyalty to Lucas may not have been the best career move. Think of all the great parts you turned down so you could be available for Star Wars. The Eddie Murphy role in 48 Hrs. The Cheshire cat in Cats & Dogs. Teena Brandon in Boys Don't Cry!
And for what, Chewie? Lucas gave you only two lines in your entire career: "Arrgh!" and "Arrrrgh!" Okay, maybe that was some of the best dialogue he ever wrote, but in all those years you never got a big speech. You never got a love scene. You never got naked, Chewie. You were always naked.
You got screwed, bro.
A what? A what the hell is a wookie?
