Most of us know that Steven Spielberg started filming at a very young age and that, when he got a chance to direct professionally, he took one of his amateur films (Firelight) and sort of remade it as Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
George Lucas, however, almost did the same. In his case it wasn't amateur films that were made, when he was young, but films he had to make because of his study at UCS. During his time at UCS he was involved in at least 8 film projects (that we know of), most of them shorts and mostly as a director.
One of these shorts he must've liked soo much, that he decided to make a feature out of it, as soon as he was given the chance by Francis (then Ford) Coppola.
The short was titled: THX-1138-EB (Electronic Labyrinth). When Lucas remade the short as a feature, the film got longer, but the title shortened: THX-1138.
