    SciFi JAPAN TV #06: 1970's Godzilla FX Director 第6話「70年代のゴジラの特技監督」


    Earlier this month, in honor of Godzilla FX director Teruyoshi Nakano's 77th birthday, a special two-day event including a film screening of GHIDORAH, THE THREE-HEADED MONSTER was held in a small theater in Kanagawa Prefecture, with Mr. Nakano himself in attendance.

    During the event, SciFi JAPAN TV was given the great privilege to sit down with the director to discuss his life and career before the audience.

    Mr. Nakano, who is perhaps best remembered for helming the FX on the Godzilla series through the turmoil years of the 1970s, first served as an assistant director at Toho under Eiji Tsuburaya.

    This is the first of a two-part episode with Mr. Nakano, so be sure to check back for the rest soon!


    A regular video program focusing exclusively on Japanese scifi and monsters is something we've always wanted to see, but nothing like it has ever been available, neither in Japan nor overseas. So we decided to make it ourselves!

    SciFi JAPAN TV is shot on location in Japan exclusively for SciFi Japan by the Gaijin Channel production team. The show will delve into the world of Japanese monsters and scifi, featuring the latest and hottest tokusatsu events in Japan, as well as simple yet in-depth discussions with the people who bring all of our favorite films and shows to life!

    The show's future relies on its popularity, so if you enjoyed it and would like to see more, we do urge you to like, comment, subscribe and share this video with all your friends! We're eager to hear your comments and suggestions: please send the production team your comments via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Google+, or send us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

    About Gaijin Channel

    Filmmaker JR Lipartito and SciFi Japan writer Jim M. Ballard make up creative duo behind Gajin Channel. Both have worked on television and corporate/client works but found that to be quite uninspiring nor even much challenge. So they left that world and joined a young multimedia company called ACTV, with high hopes of making a living doing nothing but creating cool web videos and mobile apps!
