Rest in Peace Michael Jackson
His music transcended cultures worldwide. His image, choreography and fashion made him one of the greatest performers ever.
Thriller changed how music videos were made... afterwards many of his music videos were directed many other premier (and personal favorite) music video directors.
Mark Romanek - I blogged about him before.
David Fincher - you might remember him now for directing Seven, Fight Club and Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Herb Ritts - One of the greatest fashion photographers - I'll have to do a blog on him later.
Martin Scorsese - duh. This video has an longer version that many didn't see. It makes the video much better. I also love the parodies of this video as well. One with kids and the other from the great Weird Al.
Part II ....
