Shin Godzilla (Godzilla Resurgence) is a 2016 Japanese film, produced and distributed by the Toho production company. Toho specializes in “Kaijū” (Japanese for Strange Beast) movies, and was Godzilla’s original producer.
Shin Godzilla is the 31st film in the Godzilla franchise, the 29th Godzilla film produced by Toho, and Toho’s third reboot of the franchise.
I loved watching Godzilla reruns on the USA Network when I was a kid. I am eager to see this “authentic” reboot of the franchise. Especially if they have the horrendous English overdubs.
I’ve also done the 2014 Godzilla theme as well. It actually turned out to be a righteous guitar piece.
For Persecution of the Masses, I used a cheap Alvarez AC65. I use this guitar for ultra-low, and alternate tunings. My strings (for this guitar) are Savarez Yellow Card super high-tension strings. This way the guitar performs normally in very low, or crazy tunings.
My camera is a Zoom Q8 with a SSH stereo Shotgun microphone. I use Acon Digital Acoustica to edit the audio, and Filmora to edit video. You can find a list of all of my gear with links here.
