Hollywood-Style Studios in the Presidio

The Letterman Digital Arts Center is the brainchild of Star Wars mogul George Lucas, one of the North Bay's richest individuals. Constructed in the middle of the Presidio, the Digital Arts Center has become the newest branch of Lucasfilm Ltd., a monumental project that brings together Industrial Light & Magic, and Lucas Arts in a 23-acre state-of-the-art facility. The Bay Area's new center for digital arts is bound to produce some of Hollywood's biggest explosions, space scenes, dinosaurs, and giant city-destroying monsters for years to come.
