If you've ever wondered what George Lucas ripped-off when making Star Wars, you should watch these two movies Ron Gilbert once made. They are actually quite fun to watch, and as the first commentator says, the hand-stop animation is beautiful.

(PS: Can anyone tell if he appears in either movie?)

    According to Ron, he's the one in the blue and red vest.

    Great! I'm working on my own stuff like that (with Final Cut Pro no less), so if even George did it then maybe I'll rip-off a few ideas as well.
