Young Indiana Jones Chronicles

In 1990, just weeks after leaving my career as a TV journalist, I was fortunate enough to be taken on by George Lucas as one of the writers for his series “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.” This involved spending weeks at a time at Skywalker Ranch, where the picture below was taken,with writers like Jonathan Hensleigh, Rosemary Anne Sissons,Matthew Jacobs, Jules Selbo and Frank Darabont, creating, under George Lucas’ guidance, the plots for each episode of the series, which we would then go home and write, reassembling to jointly story edit the scripts. It was a marvelous experience, and among the many brilliant directors George recruited to shoot the series was Terry Jones of Monty Python, who performed in and directed my story of young Indy’s adventures as a spy in Barcelona, from which these photos are taken. Terry and I became friends and have continued to write together since.

    Gavin is also a sculptor, creating shadow boxes similar to those of Joseph Cornell, using mass-produced toys as his medium.
