10.09.2014: Kaiju Gaiden’s Mark Jaramillo & David Hall

Kaiju Gaiden:  A documentary that discovers the untold stories of giant monsters and the filmmakers who make them!

Kaiju Gaiden’s Kickstarter Campaign is underway & they need your help to fund this incredible documentary! (Poster Art by Matt Frank)

In this episode we speak with the two masterminds behind the Kaiju Gaiden documentary. It focuses on the independent kaiju filmmakers in Japan. People like Shizuo Nakajima, the director of Legendary Beast Wolfman vs. Godzilla and Shinpei Hayashiya, director of Gamera 4: Truth and Deep Sea Monster Reigo will be featured along with many more.

Just a note, we recorded this interview about a week ago and they are actually on their way to Japan right now! Make sure to check out their Kaiju Gaiden social media platforms and hopefully they’ll post some updates from their visit to Japan. Also, head over to their campaign and support them!
