What Is Impossible?
WHAT IS IMPOSSIBLE?
George Lucas is one of the most famous directors in Hollywood, particularly because of his producing of the Star Wars movies. When he started working on the second trilogy of the Star Wars movies in 1990, he wanted to push the envelope further than he had before. He said: 'When we started [Episode I: The Phantom Menace], we said, 'Okay, now we're gonna do it the way we always wanted to do it. We've got the money, we've got the knowledge — this is it."' The trick, Lucas said, was "learning the difference between the impossible and the merely never-beforedone-or-imagined."
Creativity is pushing the envelope to try the never-before-done-or-imagined. Much of what we think is impossible fits instead in the category of the never-before-done-or-imagined.
