It might have been destiny that MTV was birthed at the same time people started to observe the uncommon skill and artistic ingenuity of Michael Jackson. It showed to be a perfect match in between the new television network and also the young increasing icon. At an early stage, Michael saw MTV's potential as a pressure of its own and understood that it supplied him the possibility to pioneer an entire brand-new aesthetic style where people could see music, not just pay attention to it. For the very first time, artists had the opportunity to truly shape a vision of a story around their tunes. For Michael, this implied dealing with the tune as a "manuscript" and also developing a movie to tell that story. Actually, Michael referred to each of these productions as a "short movie" and not a "music video."
No other musician contributed more to the development of this art type compared to Michael Jackson. Simply check out the impact of Thriller, which was lately called the first (as well as only) video ever before to be sworn in by the Library of Congress right into the National Film Registry – an elite collection of just a few hundred movies. In addition to this, Michael's vision had tremendous social impact. The substantial popularity of his short films proved to MTV Executives that they were wrong regarding just what their target market desired; it was Michael who broke through that first barrier and also developed possibility for future African American musicians.
Here, for the first time, is the total collection of all 35 of the brief films created by Michael throughout his job as a solo musician – 10 of which are showing up on DVD for the very first time. All the short movies have actually been thoroughly recovered and remastered for the ultimate sound and visual experience and also a perk DVD includes 7 added videos including "Enjoy Yourself" with The Jacksons, "Say Say Say" with Paul McCartney and also the Previously Unreleased video clip for "One More Chance". This is a true representation of Michael Jackson's Vision.
