Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 114th birthday of innovative Japanese director Eiji Tsuburaya. Tsuburaya is credited with bringing “Tokusatsu” to the worldwide stage. Tokusatsu is a style of live action filming that uses considerable amounts of special effects (tokusatsu means “special filming” in Japanese). Think Godzilla (Tsuburaya was a co-creator), Ultraman, and, here in the West, Power Rangers.
Today’s interactive Doodle involves setting up props, actors, stage lighting, and more all in the style of Tokusatsu!
