Synthesis Camera



A synthesis camera (*5) thought to have been used in the biosynthesis of Godzilla. According to Sadao Iizuka, Shinpachiro, Yuinobu Tokashiki, Yoshio Ishii and others were creating matte paintings around the time of Godzilla. Tokashiki is said to have been a painter who belonged to the Independent Art Association. Note that this device is not used when both composite materials are moving images, such as the shot where Godzilla appears for the first time on Oto Island.
