Kazuki Ōmori (大森 一樹, Ōmori Kazuki, born March 3, 1952) is a Japanese film director and screenwriter.

Career[edit]

Born in Osaka, Ōmori studied at Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine[1] and holds a license to practice medicine.[2] While in school, he began making films independently, with Kuraku naru made matenai! (1975), which featured Seijun Suzuki, receiving particularly high praise.[3] His script "Orenji rōdo kyūkō" won the 3rd Kido Award for screenplays in 1977, and the next year he was able to film that in his professional debut.[1] Several of his films, such as the 1980 Hipokuratesu-tachi, feature doctors or rely on his knowledge of medicine. He has worked in a variety of genres, including suspense films, musicals, and most famously abroad, several contributions to the Heisei Godzilla series.[3]

Ōmori also participated in the formation of Director's Company in 1982, an independent production company founded by nine directors, including Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Sōgo Ishii, Shinji Sōmai, and Kazuhiko Hasegawa.[1] In 2000, he became a professor at Osaka Electro-Communication University, and in 2005, a professor at Osaka University of Arts.[1] He was also a special guest at G-Fest XIII in 2006.
