‘Thriller’ Album Documentary

Music journalist and filmmaker Nelson George is directing a documentary on the making of Michael’s “Thriller” album as part of the official 40th anniversary celebrations. This comes after previous documentaries by acclaimed director Spike Lee for “Bad” and “Off the Wall.”

The director has said;

“The release of “Thriller” redefined Michael Jackson, taking him from teen star to adult superstar, who composed memorable songs, sang beautifully and reached the highest level of on-stage performance. The album, and the short films they inspired, created a new template for marrying music and image. It’s been a privilege to explore this extraordinary album and revisit its magic.”

On talking about the documentary, in a statement Branca and McClain said;

“Michael opened and explored emotional depths and pushed the boundaries of sonic innovation on “Thriller.” In the process, he breached destructive barriers in the music industry and literally united the world through his music: there isn’t a place on this planet that hasn’t been exhilarated by the music of Michael Jackson. This documentary’s exploration of Michael’s process and impact is revelatory.”

The documentary is currently still in production and will include never-before-seen footage.
