No, not George Lucas. The Lucas who really can direct: Tom Lucas!
Regular readers may remember I made with Tom a series of short astronomy videos that were put up on YouTube and Hulu. I just found out they're up at space.com as well! These are short, professionally-produced videos featuring me talking about cool astronomy stuff like Hubble (how appropriate!), Saturn, and whatever else I felt like talking about.
My personal favorites are the ones about Hubble and Mercury. They were done last, and instead of me memorizing lines, we just had a list of bullet points, and I hit them while extemporizing in front of the camera. I'm a lot more relaxed if I'm not fretting over getting my lines exactly right.
Go ahead and take a look, and if you like 'em, tell a friend!
