    /\ \/ shot flat but made to look like a vertical climb all using a structure under construction. Little bit of ingenuity from Lucas.

    Simplicity is a wonderful virtue and almost always wins the day.

    I think it's a good illustration of practical thinking and "the right effect for the right job".

    As you acknowledge, that scene also plays with perspective and orientation: a classic Lucas trick and aesthetic obsession.

    THX is an overlooked gem. Lucas' commentary on the Blu special edition is worth a listen too. I wish he hadn't retired.

    Heh. I did not know this. Apologies if it's already been posted; this is one of my favorite pieces of technology in the PT.

    All of these are from the Lucasfilm site. It has great OT BTS stuff as well.

    The miniature Sets built still amaze me all the detail they have.
