The making of the Thriller album with all the original people involved. That&#8217;s something Marcos can easily sell to major TV stations. :)
So sad that Michael can&#8217;t be part of this documentary. :(

I really hope they don&#8217;t portray it as Bruce&#8217;s and Quincy&#8217;s product. The material so far doesn&#8217;t mention MJ a lot &#8230;

===

Synopsis:

In the early eighties in Los Angeles, a group of musicians led by Quincy Jones and his engineer Bruce Swedien undertake a project, which aims to revolutionize the music industry. That project would be called Thriller.

For the first time, 38 years later, everyone involved in that album has come together to explain the unknown story behind the creation of this masterpiece. Also, why his engineer Bruce Swedien ended up being a fundamental piece in this incredible legend.

Almost 40 years after its release, Thriller remains the best-selling record in history. And everything has a reason.

Last I heard they had it scheduled for this summer, but not sure how the pandemic affects their schedule. Guess it depends on whether or not they&#8217;re done filming already.

Oh ok.
It’s so great that he got so many people involved who were actually there....even Quincy.
I hope this will get more attention than some of the other documentaries that weren’t made by the Estate. And I really hope that we’ll get to see new footage from the recording sessions of Thriller...that would be awesome!

Wow. i totally forgot about this. LOL! i thought it was sonic the hedgehog at first. :lmao: so they change the doc title. this look like this may be good. it has a poster which is nice. it's kind of sad most people who worked with Michael are no longer with us to be in this even Michael himself. but this looks great. lots of good documentaries coming out. when is gonna aired? on TV or online? will we have to pay?

I hope they talk about Michael. he was the one who made it and thought about it after all. and Quincy better not say any negative crap about Michael in any form.

I never opened this thread because I thought it was a about a sonic game that somehow got connected to MJ.

What it actually is about is much more interesting though, hopefully MJ's contribution for the album isn't diminished to just vocals, Quincy is already seen as the genius behind MJ and not MJ himself. It's about time people realize MJ was not just a good singer and dancer but also had great song ideas and talent in the studio.

That’s what I’m worried about.

In the synopsis they mentioned Quincy as being the leader, no mention of Michael, in the teaser they praise Quincy and there is no mention of Michael other than this one second where they’re talking about the team of Quincy, Bruce and Michael.

I’m just hoping that they didn’t put the parts where they mention Michael’s genius not to spoil the documentary, if not I will be very disappointed.

“...a group of musicians led by Quincy Jones and his engineer Bruce Swedien undertake a project...”

This rubs me the wrong way, ngl.

Hi guys, my name is Toni Arias, part of the team working on Sonic Fantasy. I will try answer some questions or comments (of course is a work in progress and I can't talk openly about every aspect) :)

The main character of the documentary is Bruce Swedien and his role on Thriller, his vision, his story... but in the end, it's a Michael Jackson documentary.

You're right, Bruce Swedien worked in thousands of records, but Thriller is what it is because of Michael. There will be A LOT of MJ on it. 0% crap about him. Guaranteed.

The covid crisis had affected the release date so far. It will be later this year.

Great content and a long-overdue. Nothing against Quincy but as I gather more and more information about the men behind the scenes I start to think that Bruce has at least as much, if not even more impact in MJ's creative work. It was definitely team work, and I appreciate to learn more about these contributors, it's fascinating.

Thanks for sharing the insight! :)

Hey! Thanks for the answers.
Are you able to tell us whether or not we will see new footage of Michael in the studio?

It was due in Summer 2020 but the pandemic has delayed post-production work and so the new date is TBD.

Who are these people you speak of? Aside from idiots, I mean.

You know them , those music snobs, who think highly of the likes of Radiohead, Prince and David Bowie while diminishing the brilliance of Michael, Elvis and others.
The type of people who think you can only be a brilliant artist if you master one or more instruments and write and compose all of your music yourself.

Everybody should know Michael was an great artist as well. yes he could dance and sing. but he knew how he want it his songs to sound like etc. i guess more causal fans don't look in to that.

Michael was highly talented. that's not saying he didn't always wrote his own songs though. a lot artists don't. but a lot do. like Prince for example.

no artist better then the other. and i wish fans stop doing that.

They are the typical arrogant white rock fans who over hype all rock artists, while undermining non rock artists. I don't usually take their opinions seriously.

Music websites all over the internet are chock full of those people, it are also these kind of people who often vote in the all time radio charts I posted about. Its full of rock tracks (hotel California, bohemian rhapsody, child in time etc) in the top 100 while equally epic black songs like "papa was a rolling stone" or Isaac Hayes' "walk on" are either not there or in very low positions.

Well that's not Michael so this docu won't change that. Don't lose any sleep over it.
