Michael Jackson - Thriller Michael Jackson - Thriller Presentation Transcript

  • Michael Jackson: Thriller
    ‘Thriller’ was the title of Michael Jackson’s sixth studio album. It is said to be the number one music video ever. The album was released on the 30th November 1982 and has sold millions of copies worldwide. And still continues to sell, especially after his sudden death. The song along with his video people regard as one of his signature songs.
  • We as the audience, see an immediate connection between him and his on
    screen girlfriend. There is also an immediate relationship between the lyrics
    and the visuals as we can see it immediately feels like we are watching
    something spooky and dark.
  • This image reinforces what the song is about and again forms the
    relationship between the visuals, lyrics and music. This image of the
    graveyard distinctly makes us connect it to death and therefore we know
    something spooky is going to happen. It is gradually setting the scene and
    building it up.
  • The iconic choreographed dance routine, that has been copied many times.
    Although this video doesn’t have distinctive intertextual references, there
    have been other music videos and films that have used this iconic video. For
    example the Beatfreakz video to Somebody’s Watching Me .
  • The sounds effects that appear in the song are also emphasised in the music
    video through the use of mise-en-scene. We actually see the noises being
    made e.g. The sound of the coffin when its being opened.
  • There lots of close ups throughout the video of Michael Jacksons face and his
    on screen girlfriend’s, it makes it feel a bit more spooky as it gets across the
    emotion of both characters.
  • This video end’s in the way of ‘it was all a dream’ an ongoing thing that
    continuously comes up in stories and films.
