09.11.2012: MEN IN SUITS! MEN IN SUITS!! Get it? That’s a reference to Godzilla AND this month’s interview.

Men In Suits documentarians Bill Janczewski and Frank Woodward join the Kaijucast in this episode to talk about their current kickstarter project.

(…see what I did there?) It’s not often that I cover something created domestically, but the two gentlemen who were a part of this episode are doing such an amazing thing that I really would be neglect in my duties if I didn’t cover their documentary. Men In Suits is about the actors who become the monsters we love to see and Bill Janczewski (producer) and Frank Woodward (director) of Wyrd appear to be doing a great job in bringing these actors’ experiences directly to us, the fans. I urge everyone to check out their Kickstarter project and donate. Even though they have reached their funding to finish the documentary, you can still help make the finished product a better finished product…and get a copy of the movie for your own collection.

Just check out the roster of suit actors who are involved: Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth), Tom Woodruff Jr. (the Alien fims), Haruo Nakajima (Godzilla, Ultraman), Bob Burns (The Ghost Busters, Invasion of the Saucer Men), Brian Steele (Hellboy II, Predators), Douglas Tait (Zathura, Knights of Badassdom), John Alexander (Gorillas In The Mist, Men In Black), Van Snowden (H.R. Pufnstuff, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters), Misty Rosas (Congo, Sid The Science Kid), Michelan Sisti (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dinosaurs), Camden Toy (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel), Bobby Clark (Star Trek), as well as August Ragone (author of Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters), Todd Tucker (Drac Studios), Alec Gillis (ADI Effects), William Malone (director, House on Haunted Hill), and Guillermo Del Toro (director, Pan’s Labyrinth).

It was really great to talk with them and I hope to have an opportunity to do so in person some day.
