Steven Spielberg owes much of his success to the invaluable contributions of his key partners, George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy. They have helped each other out on many films like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park franchises.

In 1993, Spielberg sought additional assistance to ensure that both Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List could be released on schedule.

According to Business Insider, Spielberg immediately got in touch with his producer, Kathleen Kennedy, who is now the president of Lucasfilm, to let her know that he had to switch his attention from finishing up “Jurassic Park” to working on “Schindler’s List,” even though there were still some final touches like sound mixing, color correction, and sound effects remaining for the former movie.

He also mentioned calling George Lucas whom Spielberg referred to as a best friend always to oversee the the dubbing process, and he graciously agreed to come in and handle the dubbing for me.

In the end, “Jurassic Park” won the awards for Best Sound Effects Editing and Best Sound at the 66th Academy Awards in 1994, thanks to the help of “Star Wars” creator George Lucas.
