Shinichi Sekizawa (関沢新一, Sekizawa Shin'ichi) (June 2, 1921 in
Kyoto, Japan – November 19, 1992) was a Japanese screenwriter. His
very first screenplay was for the independently-produced film (Though
Shintoho Studios) Fearful Attack of the Flying Saucers,
which was also his sole directing credit. He went on to script several
films by Ishirō Honda, including several classic
Godzilla films. He
also contributed material to the original
Ultraman series and several
Tōei Dōga films such as Jack and the Witch.
His scripts for kaiju films have been noted for their inventiveness
and for having a more lightweight, "fun" tone than those written by
Takeshi Kimura (aka Kaoru Mabuchi), another leading writer of kaiju
films, whose scripts had a darker, more serious sensibility.
Before embarking on his screenwriting career, he briefly attended an
animation school with famed manga artist and animator Osamu Tezuka.
