Shōgo Tomiyama (富山省吾, Tomiyama Shōgo) is a Japanese film producer. He is best known for producing all of the Godzilla films from the 1990s onward.

Biography

An aspiring producer, who took the reigns of the Godzilla series following Tomoyuki Tanaka's death. Shogo Tomiyama's persistence is what kept the series alive following its rough start near the turn of the millennium. After Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000) failed at the box office, Tomiyama switched gears and handed the series over to director Shusuke Kaneko, who churned out the highly successful Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack in 2001. By 2003, though, the series had once again gone stagnant at the box office with the lackluster performance of Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. Tomiyama had big things in store for the following year, though, as he stepped up to become the president of Toho along with co-writing and producing the most expensive Godzilla film to emerge from Toho: Godzilla: Final Wars (2004). Preceding the film's release, Tomiyama commented that Godzilla would go into a decade long retirement following the release of the 2004 film, and, after surveying the disappointing box office receipts for Final Wars, it seems likely that he will stay true to his word.
