Eiji Tsuburaya
Eiji Tsuburaya, considered by many to be "God of Special Effects" was born July 7, 1901 and died January 11, 1970. During his childhood, Tsuburaya was fascinated with aviation, which was a hobby he'd have all his life. In 1919, he took up his first job as a cameraman for Nikkatsu. In 1938 he became special effects director at Toho Studios. During World War II, he directed several propaganda films, one of which, The War At Sea From Hawaii To Malay, was so well done the American censors during occupation became frightened and thought it was real footage of Pearl Harbor. After the war, he formed his own independent effects company until returning to Toho in 1951. In 1954 he was one of the team who made Godzilla(1954).
