Why “Thriller” ? visit: byronfgarcia.com 1500 plus CPDRC inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines at practice! This is not the final routine, and definitely not a punishment! WHY THRILLER? What made me choose Michael Jackson’s Thriller for the aerobics routine is that Michael Jackson was a convicted man to the eyes of those who hated him. He would have been in imprisoned had it not been for settlement arrangements, they would say. Still Michael Jackson’s frailty as a human being makes him like one of us — whether one is a prisoner or not. I saw in the lyrics and video of Thriller much of what jail culture is like. Because of the hideous conditions in jails, prisons are like tombs and inmates are like ghoulish creatures. The only difference is that dancers in the MJ Thriller video come with make-up and costumes. The Dancing Inmates come as themselves. People perceived to be evil. The message of the Thriller is a message for all of us. The funk of forty thousand years embedded in the cycle of sin and punishment is a legacy no mere mortal can resist or is capable of resisting. No prison wall can and will stop evil from lurking in the dark. No shackle can stop the beast about to strike. No punitive or brutal treatment is ever too strong to stop creatures crawling in search of blood. Unless we stop breeding demons in jails, gruesome ghouls from every tomb will seal …

On June 25th, 2009 People were surprised and sorrowed everywhere around the globe. It is the day Michael Jackson, the “King of Pop” passed away. I’ve always been the biggest fan of his music from my childhood. His tunes and dances are always been sensational, and all of his music clips made like Hollywood movies are full of surprises. Even as a child, I was spell-bounded and fascinated by his works. Now, being as a film maker (of CG animation), I have no doubt to say this fascination in my youth had been a guidepost for what I have become. It has been two years since Michael Jackson passed away. From the appreciation and respect to his work, I have planned to produce my way of “homage”. It’s a clip that performed by my original created characters dance in the memory of Michael. With fellows supporting the idea, we’ve gathered days and nights between our works to finish this project. Still having the passion and emotion to make further improvements, we somehow made it to release the clip before this day of June 25th. I am hoping from my heart that this clip will be enjoyed by many people through the world. and I also wish from my heart that this clip will somehow be a linkage to many of the great works that Michael has let us. Wishing him peace in heaven. Kiminori Tanoue
