New Jacko Book Lifts The Lid On Thriller Shoot
A new book about Michael Jackson reveals never-before-seen images of the star behind-the-scenes of his iconic 1983 video THRILLER.
Photographer Douglas Kirkland has gathered all the snaps he took of the singer rehearsing for the horror promo and undergoing the make-up routine that transformed him from pop star to zombie.
The images all appear in Michael Jackson: The Making of Thriller: 4 Days/1983.
Remembering his time on set with Jacko - who died last year (09) - Kirkland writes, "The yellow contacts he wore were painful. So was peeling off the makeup. But he stayed positive. His ability to write, create and perform - he was truly exceptional."
