Still in Tokyo. Paid a visit last week to the new workshop of Tokyo Gore Police director, makeup effects designer and friend Yoshihiro Nishimura's company, Nishimura Eizo (西村映造), out past Ueno in the quiet neighborhood of Iriya. I wonder if his neighbors know what bizarre things are being constructed in the otherwise normal-looking storefront?

Below are some random photos of ongoing effects design and construction. There are at least three different films represented here, including the directorial debuts of both actor Keisuke Horibe (he's the police officer dad whose head is blown off in the opening minutes of TGP) and TV comedian Itsuji Isao (who plays Keyman in the film), plus veteran director Yudai Yamaguchi's upcoming bizarro comedy for Toei, Elite Yankee Saburo.

Check for your daily project updates at Nishimura's blog. He's the guy in the NYPD stocking cap below.
