Highly influential Canadian experimental and documentary Filmmaker  Colin Low died Yesterday in Montreal at age 89.

Who’s Colin Low?  Well…

Star Wars influence : He produced Arthur Lipsett’s  experimental film 21-87,  a favorite of George Lucas as a student who found the inspiration about the force in that short. In A new Hope the cell block where they keep Leia is 21-87. In the Force Awakens the lost stormtrooper code is 21-87…

Kubrick influence: Stanley loved his NFB film Universe, a major influence on 2001, even borrowing his narrator Douglas Rain to Dub the voice of Hal-9000.

He was a developer of the IMAX system

And on and on.

Try and beat that…
