An overdue update on Taj Jackson’s documentary.
Taj has just given an update on the upcoming documentary he is making to defend his uncle Michael Jackson.
Due to COVID-19, some major delays has been noticed and Taj explains more about the delays in an update on his GoFundMe page.
Here it is in full:
June 10th Update:
Why the infrequent updates here?
It can be somewhat tricky giving meaningful updates with such delicate information. Especially when I feel I still need to be vague about certain details. There are a group of people online that dissect my every post, livestream or tweet with the intent of finding something to hurt Michael Jackson.
Saying that, I sometimes forget that you guys simply want to be kept more in the loop.
When I tell you that there are multiple attempts to hack my personal emails and social media accounts daily, I’m not kidding. DAILY
But that will soon change because I am finally looking into my legal actions options.
After reading your tweets, comments, and emails; I realize that you guys just want to know if the project is still coming along ok. YES!. I took on this large role knowing that I could successfully honor my uncle’s life and legacy the way it deserves.
I apologize for the lapse in time since the last update, but I assure you, it’s going well.
What’s the latest info and what can you share?
I’ve attempted to keep people up to date in my Youtube livestreams, but I’m seeing that many of you are not finding these.
Seemingly every week a number of associates/friends of my uncle contact me happily wanting to take part in this series or help with it. As mentioned in a livestream, due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19), I have not been able to continue to set up or film in person interviews right now. This has caused things to slow down but I am doing everything I can that does not require the physical presence of others. Once the virus is more controlled, I will be able to continue the portions that need in person collaborations/work.
Ok, So what else are you doing?
I have been doing several Zoom and Skype interviews about Michael Jackson in the past 3-4 months, and have participated in at least 3 more positive documentaries about Michael Jackson that are coming out.
Why was your gofundme link on twitter taken down?
With all that is going on in the world (Coronavirus “Covid-19” and Black Lives Matter), it felt inappropriate to promote the gofundme page on Twitter. Rest assured that the project is continuing, it is just a personal decision for now.
Why isn’t it moving faster? It needs to be out now!
I understand how difficult patience can be while dealing with immense ignorant views of Michael Jackson. I also read these lies that get regurgitated and spread daily. Great quality takes time though, and my uncle never rushed his albums no matter the pressure or climate and we all have heard and enjoyed the incredible results.
His albums are timeless because he made them that way. I am making something that goes hand and hand with the work he gave us and that he would expect from me and make him proud.
This project also turned into something bigger and better than when I initially put the documentary up on gofundme. It is now a multi-part series that goes much more in depth, which makes the time tables a little different.
Here’s some quick comparisons of two Doc series that were well received and highly regarded.
The Michael Jordan series “The Last Dance”
– 10 Part Series
– Interviewed 90 people
– Cost estimates run over 20 million dollars
OJ Simpson “Made in America”
– 5 part series
– Interviewed 72 people
– Over two years to make
– Cost 5 million dollars
Time , Budget, or Quality
Square One being and staying in the top 10 documentaries on Amazon Prime (USA) demonstrates that people once again are ready for positive Michael Jackson material.
Whether his music is used as anthems to unite the world during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, or in protests against injustice accompanying Black Lives Matter. The world is ready and needs his message.
Jun 13th Vindication Day
On this day 15 years ago, Michael Jackson’s verdict was read to the world and he was finally declared innocent by the justice system.
I plan to do a special livestream on that day. We also need to trend something on twitter.
