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.

Google Doodle for today … “Mother’s Day 2015”!!

Google Doodle celebrates Mothering Sunday with tribute to mums across the animal kingdom …. And their children!

Google’s cute animation shows mothers across nature nurturing their young offspring. Cubs, chicks, pups, bunnies and lastly a child are shown in the care of their mother.

Flowers don’t make much of an appearance in this year’s Mother’s Day Google Doodle.

The animated Doodle, designed by Olivia Huynh, honors a range of mothers — human moms and various animal ones — as they’re greeted by their children, cubs, chicks and baby bunnies.

“Brainstorming for this Doodle and thinking of my own mom, lots of small moments and gestures of affection came up, so I decided to concentrate on that as a concept,” Huynh explained. “I spent awhile trying to figure out how I could use style to keep the characters somewhat minimalistic and relatable since Mother’s Day is celebrated all around world.”

While previous Mother’s Day Doodles have tended to incorporate colorful carnations, this year’s Doodle seems to be more in line with what the holiday’s founder would’ve wanted to see. Philadelphia activist Anna Jarvis, who came up with the idea in 1908 to pay a tribute to her mother, later slammed the commercialization of the holiday and the profiteering of Mother’s Day carnations.

Mother’s Day is a modern celebration honoring one’s own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father’s Day and Siblings Day.

The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century; it is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as Pitru Paksha in Ancient India, the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a celebration of the mother church, not motherhood).

Despite this, in some countries, Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.

Vernal Equinox: New Google Doodle Celebrates First Day of Spring

A celestial trifecta welcomes in the change of seasons

The Sun, the moon, and Google are celebrating the official start of spring — this year’s vernal equinox on March 20 will include a solar eclipse, a supermoon and a stop-animation Google Doodle.

As TIME wrote last year, the vernal equinox is when “earth’s axis is angled such that the world gets an equal amount of daylight and night,” signaling the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

This year’s spring begins with a celestial bang. Most of Europe and parts of northern Africa and Asia will be treated with a partial solar eclipse and the few inhabitants of the Danish Faroe Islands andNorway’s Svalbard archipelago will be lucky enough to witness a total eclipse. Or, you can watch a streaming broadcast here.

Parts of the world will witness a solar eclipse on Friday – a rare phenomenon in which the sun is completely obscured by the moon. A solar eclipse can only happen at new moon, when the moon directly blocks sight of the sun from certain places in the world. It can take place up to five times a year, though according to Nasa, only 25 years in the past 5,000 have had five solar eclipses.

March 20, 2015, is a date that most of us recognize as symbolic of changing seasons. As we welcome spring, people south of the equator are actually gearing up for the cooler temperatures of autumn.
