Google Doodle artists spotlight a film legacy as towering as Godzilla

JENNIFER HOM, the Bay Area-based Google artist, has both an eye for the precise and a flair for the dramatic.

Today, Hom achieves that artistic union by helping create a Google Doodle to mark the 114th birthday of late Japanese cinematic legend Eiji Tsuburaya.

As an interactive ode to the special-effects pioneer, the Doodle allows the user to build a film, step by monster-loving step.

“Director Eiji Tsuburaya is best known for the famous characters he brought to life, like Ultraman,” Hom says in Google’s “making of” peek behind the scenes.

“After many years in the ‘monster business,’ he set up his own practical effects studio, Tsuburaya Productions.

The Japanese film director, who died in 1970 aged 68, worked on classic monster films such as Godzilla and Ultraman. Tsuburaya was also the innovator of the movement known as Tokusatsu, a Japanese term which refers to the extensive use of special effects in film and television. Today would have been Tsuburaya’s 114th birthday.
To celebrate this, a new Google Doodle allows you to create your own short action film in just 10 steps.

Eiji Tsuburaya, July 7, 1901 – January 25, 1970, in Sukagawa, Fukushima) was the Japanese special effects director responsible for many Japanese science-fiction movies, being one of the co-creators of the Godzilla series, as well as the main creator of Ultraman.

Tsuburaya Productions

In the 1940’s, Tsuburaya started his own special effects laboratory (set up at his home), and in 1963, founded his own studio for visual effects, Tsuburaya Productions. In 1966 alone, this company aired the first ‘Ultra‘ series for television, Ultra Q beginning in January, followed it with the highly popular Ultraman in July, and premiered a comedy-monster series, Booska, the Friendly Beast in November.

Ultraman became the first live-action Japanese television series to be exported around the world, and spawned the Ultra Series which continues to this day.
