Star Wars Production Stills Circa 1976
Someone has posted over 1,000 production stills from the first Star Wars film on imgur.
They are great. It is fabulous to see photography from the late 70s visual effects production process, back when we had cameras and models and not just a bunch of computer weirdos.
The model photography would probably have been shot at the original ILM, on Valjean in Van Nuys, where Apogee was later located. There are also photographs from the shoot in England and Tunisia.
This would have been about 1976 for the most part.
