Man in the Mirror

I wanted to change the world, so I got up one morning and looked in the mirror. That one looking back said: There is not much time left.... MICHAEL JACKSON

    This is it ~ The Tour and/or The Film

    Post  Moonlight on Sun Nov 22, 2009 4:54 pm

    I haven't been to see the movie, I've seen a few clips, read some articles, and listened to what some people involved in the production and others commentators have to say about it. Now and then, I get really bad vibes, or read/hear/see something is contradictory, doesn't add up etc... So, I've created this thread to lay down some of the issues that have arisen for me, so that they can be addressed. If anyone else has identified issues, or can clarify mine please respond Smile

    My first issue is with the actual announcement of the This is it Tour at the O2 on the 5th of March 2009. There has been a lot of controversy and divided opinion about whether the person who made that announcement was actually really Michael or not.

    I'm uncertain about it for several reasons and have been left with strange and uncomfortable feelings about it.

    Has there been any definitive proof provided that this was actually genuinely Michael?

    The answer to that question is pivotal to supporting and dispelling various other assertions around this case, so I feel it to be an important fact to establish.

    Next up is something more recent that has been reported where statements either arose suspicion or contradict with other statements.

    Recently, there has been an interview with Sandrine Orabona posted in the news entitled:

    Behind the Camera with Videographer Sandrine Orabona
    Full article here:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/trey-borzillieri/michael-jacksons-this-is_b_361311.html


    There were two parts to this interview that have troubled me.

    Firstly,


    TB: How did everyone deal with news of his passing?

    SO: It was a very difficult day. I was actually there shooting at the time and I almost dropped the camera. I had to shoot on my knees through the better part of that moment. I was overwhelmed with the emotion and I was like, "Ok, I am going to pass out". But I couldn't because I had to film. The way I can describe it is... the entire world was mourning that day, imagine how it was in the rehearsal space. I have a hard time remembering it actually. I feel like I had an out-of-body experience.


    Now I'm not sure how anyone else feels when they read that statement and particularly the part that I have bolded and underlined?
    But for me, this suggests some sort advanced directive, or prior knowledge.

    Let's be real here for a moment, picture the scene she is describing there. News suddenly comes in that the star of this show you've been documenting with your camera, Michael Jackson has died, apart from the underlined and bolded part, everything else she says would fit with the sudden impact and feelings anyone may probably experience upon hearing that news for the first time, it feels and probably is her natural reaction to such breaking news.

    But the underlined and bolded part does not fit shock news and natural response at all, she couldn't follow her natural instincts, because she had to film confused

    Why? Why, in that moment of learning about Michael's death for the first time, did she 'have to' carry on filming?

    Filming what? What was she actually filming when the news was delivered?

    Why couldn't and didn't she just follow her natural instincts to keel over or drop the camera, within the shock of the moment? With earth shattering news like that, wouldn't everything just stand still for all of them, at least for that moment? Wouldn't it have disrupted the normal routine of everyone, at least for afew moments?

    If, she "had to film" in that moment, does that imply that she knew something in advance of that moment. How did she know in that moment already, that she 'had to film' it?

    Does this imply some advanced knowledge and directive to film something in relation to hearing the news of Michael's death?

    Or a different time frame for hearing the news and filming the news being given maybe?


    I'm not certain yet exactly what this means, but I feel that there's just something not quite right about being unable to have a natural reaction to unexpected and tragic news, 'because I had to film'.
