The Thriller Cover Session

The commemorative nature of this interview, as a celebration of Michael's 35 year anniversary achievements with "Thriller,” was a special delight to me

Fan Club Art Gallery, an art gallery specializing in paintings and limited edition prints for fans of entertainment celebrities, is pleased to announce the launch of a new DVD commemorating the 35th anniversary of the Michael Jackson “Thriller” album. The new DVD, called“'Thriller' – The Interview: My Memories of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson,” is a retrospective look at the creation of the Thriller album cover by photographer and painter, Dick Zimmerman. The DVD interview, which includes an art booklet containing Dick's paintings of Michael, can be purchased at Fan Club Art Gallery and a free preview of the video can be seen at a Fan Club Art Gallery offer page.

The project began as a way of recognizing the anniversary of the 35 year release of Thriller in late 1982 and it's massive impact through 1983 until this day. “The commemorative nature of this interview, as a celebration of Michael's 35 year anniversary achievements with "Thriller,” was a special delight to me,” said Mr Zimmerman. 'I was honored to photograph Michael for Thriller and to participate in the creation of the album cover. Likewise, I appreciated the chance to share my memories of those times.”    

The DVD interview with Dick Zimmerman provides an honest and revealing look into the artistic process that went into the creation of the iconic photo of Michael Jackson in the white suit for the album cover. It details how Dick and Michael came together for the Thriller photo session and ended up creating an image of the young star for the album cover that has transcended time. The famous white suit actually belonged to the photographer himself – who swapped clothing with Michael, that day, to create a photograph that has been circulated more than any other image, of any human being in history.

The DVD interview also describes 2 other photo sessions with Michael including his wedding photo session with Lisa Marie Presley. Dick recounts his memories of Michael from the star's playfulness to his more somber moments. It is a retrospective look at a performer whose life and achievements continue to fascinate.

Mr Zimmerman's work as a highly sought after portrait painter, has continued to provide avenues to expand upon some of his earlier photographic work. He has painted a number of portraits of Michael Jackson and other celebrities with whom he has worked, which have been released as limited edition prints through Fan Club Art Gallery. Mr Zimmerman can also be commissioned to paint fine portrait art for individuals, families, business people, and celebrities alike through referring links on the Fan Club Art Gallery site.

For more information on these limited edition fine art prints, as well as the DVD of his memories of Michael Jackson, please go to the Fan Club Art Gallery website.
