After going to USC (where he met a fellow student called George Lucas), Hal Barwood began his career as a screenwriter. Along with Matthew Robbins (who also studied at USC) he wrote Sugarland Express, the first movie of Steven Spielberg. After this, he appeared in the Spielberg classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and produced the cult fantasy movie Dragonslayer with (once again) Matthew Robbins. Then, he moved to Lucasarts where he worked as a designer, writer, and project leader on games such as Star Wars: Rebel Assault II, Yoda Stories, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine.
