Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
It’s October, so of course I have to dig up some behind the scenes shots from Thriller, directed by John Landis with make up by Rick Baker and Tim Lawrence. Being an ‘80s kid, Michael Jackson’s Thriller kind of defined Halloween for me and my friends. People know it’s a huge song (and album), but it’s one thing to know it was popular and quite another to have been there to see it really take over pop culture, especially when you were able to view that through the eyes of a child.
Today we have not one, but two pictures from the making of that iconic music video. First up is Tim Lawrence working on a quite fantastic looking mold of Mr. Jackson turning all werewolf on us. The second is MJ being de-zombified. Enjoy!
If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Would y’all mind stepping back? You’re blocking tomorrow’s pic’s frequencies.
