What does Tokusatsu mean?
Tokusatsu are Japanese films or TV shows that belong to the science fiction genre, as the word itself also indicates, it means “special effects”.

Before and during the Second World War, high-level modeling techniques were developed, designed to add realism to the war movies of the time.

After the war, U.S. forces banned the production of war films. The Japanese model makers chose, however, to continue their work in that area, which would then allow them to get the most out of the effects, namely science fiction.

Silvio Giordano (Artist, filmmaker, performer) collected thousands of Tokusatsu films which he then transformed into short animated gifs. The images, between the grotesque and the phantasmagorical, are projected in loops accompanied by a Dj-Set by Shakebeat. Their engaging sets range from the most sought-after beats to the most rhythmic grooves, always creating a feeling with the dance floor.
