Skywalker Ranch: George Lucas’ Sublime Home On Earth

When you’re a man who has spent decades surfing unknown galaxies, the one place you want to call home is an earthy ranch. Of course, there is really nothing down-to-earth about Skywalker Ranch, George Lucas’ home and studio California’s Marin County. The ranch is not another figment of Lucas’ imagination but an homage to everything tranquil about life on Earth.

British filmmaker and leading time-lapse cinematographer Philip Bloom got unprecedented access to the sprawling estate after spending five days as the guest of the Lucasfilm production team (and sleeping in the bed usually reserved for Clint Eastwood and the likes).

Bloom shot video on-site as a way to show the Lucas folk what could be done with video DSLRs, more specifically how to get the best out of the Canon 5DmkII and the Canon 7D.

Judging from the footage below it seems like he might have taught them good.
