Busts Sculpted For Two Directors At Elstree Studios

News Image
George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are two of many famous directors who have worked at Elstree Studios.

To honour their creative contribution to the history of Elstree Studios, busts have been sculpted of both George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. On seeing pictures of the bust, Spielberg said he loves the finished product. Elstree is a very special place to him and being commemorated in this way warms his heart.

The busts were made by ‘Lifecast’ who are based on site at Elstree Studios. The Creative Director was John Schoonraad and the Sculptor was Brendan Lonergan. A bust of Alfred Hitchcock was last year, presented to the BFI where it is on display.
