ZERO! Talkin' About a Japanese War Epic!

Tonight, I attended a talk event with Takashi Naganuma, a veteran of Toho SFX, whose career spans from the early 1970s to the early 1990s. The focus on the event was the Toho war epic Zero (1984), directed by Toshio Masuda. Naganuma-san worked on the film and brought along a few goodies for the evening.

On top of bringing in the shooting script, Naganuma-san brought along one of the actual Zero fighters used in the film. Now this is something you don't see every day. It was great to have a chance to look a close look at this prop. Incredible!

After all that, it was picture time. Naganuma-san is great, and I always enjoy myself when I'm in his compant. Let's do it again soon!
