George Lucas has expressed his opinion of today's state of the film industry and film studios on "CBS:  This Morning"
"You're selling creativity. Raw creativity from talented people," Lucas told "CBS This Morning" co-host Charlie Rose at Chicago Ideas Week. "Now, the problem has always been the studios. Although the beginning of the studios, the entrepreneurs who ran the studios were sort of creative guys. They would just take books and turn them into movies and do things like that. Suddenly all these corporations were coming in. They didn't know anything about the movie business." 
Lucas said they started hiring "kids" from film schools. 
"They supposedly know how to make films. So suddenly we could get jobs, which was a fantastic thing. But then the studios went back to saying well we don't trust you people and we think we know how to make movies. The studios change everything all the time. And, unfortunately, they don't have any imagination and they don't have any talent," he said.
