Michael Jackson's Vision is a deluxe DVD box set by American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was released on November 22, 2010 by Epic Records, Legacy Recordings, and Jackson's own label, MJJ Productions. It includes three DVDs, featuring 4.5 hours of content of 42 music videos with newly restored color and remastered audio. Jackson referred to each of these productions as a "short film" and not a music video. This is the first time that all of Jackson's videos have been released on DVD.[1] According to a statement by the producers, the video recognizes Jackson's "pioneering short films that transformed the entertainment industry with timeless, pop culture classics".

Disc one features videos from the albums Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad and disc two features videos from the albums Dangerous, HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I, Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix and Invincible. The third disc, which is a bonus disc, features seven videos. Michael Jackson's Vision includes the full-length versions of the John Landis-directed "Thriller" and "Black or White" as well as the classic "Bad" directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese. Also included in the boxed set are Jackson's collaborations with other noted film directors such as John Singleton, Spike Lee and David Fincher as well as "Ghosts," his rarely seen collaboration with special effects legend Stan Winston. Michael Jackson's Vision is available in a limited edition boxed set featuring a 60-page glossy hard-bound book that includes behind-the-scenes photos from Jackson's videos, which includes information for each video including: songwriter, album, director, production date, location and photography.[2]

Ten music videos previously unavailable on DVD including "One More Chance" are included.[1] It was also released on the iTunes Store and has iTunes LP features. The videos "Smooth Criminal", "Speed Demon", "Come Together", and "Leave Me Alone" come from Jackson's 1988 film Moonwalker. The "Smooth Criminal" segment is actually over 40 minutes long but only the 10-minute song and dance scene is featured. The video "Another Part of Me" is from Jackson's Bad World Tour and "Will You Be There" is from the Dangerous World Tour.

The "HIStory" video is the only short film that is not included in this box set. The original music video of "Blood on the Dance Floor" is replaced with the Refugee Camp Mix for unknown reasons. The videos for The Jacksons' songs "Torture" and "Body" are also not included, because Michael did not appear in either of them, despite having a verse in each of them. Also not included is the music video for The Jacksons' "2300 Jackson Street".

On February 15, 2011, Michael Jackson's Vision was certified 5× Platinum by RIAA for the sales of over 0.5 million units in the United States.[3] On December 31, 2010, it was also certified Diamond in France (for the sales of over 60 000 units)[4] and 2× Platinum in Australia.[5] On May 29, 2011, it was also certified Gold in New Zealand.[6] It has been also certified Gold in Austria[7] and Platinum in Poland.[8]

Reception over the video and audio quality of the box set has been mixed. As the videos are played in 16:9, videos with a 4:3 aspect ratio are pillarboxed and as a result, the resolution is lower than some previous DVDs. Also, the audio is mixed in PCM stereo instead of 5.1 Surround as in many previous DVDs.

Intros

Unlike previous DVDs, Michael Jackson's Vision features animation intros to all of the videos. For discs one and two, before each video begins, a short introduction, which features a short animated clip of the video, is shown revealing the title. The bonus disc just reveals the title and a clip is not shown.

Alterations

Some music videos have been changed and are different from their previous commercial releases.

  • "Billie Jean" – unwanted specks such as a lighting bolt that pops up by Michael's feet during the dancing scene have been cleaned up.
  • "Bad" – the full 18-minute version with the ending credits included.
  • "The Way You Make Me Feel" – this is the 9-minute version; grunts and extra noises made by Michael can be heard.
  • "Smooth Criminal" – this is the 9-minute version as shown on HIStory on Film, Volume II.
  • "Speed Demon" – lines at the bottom of the screen that look as if they are from a VHS are briefly seen at the end.
  • "Black or White" – the original version without the racist graffiti added on to the car windows and shop door is featured.
  • "In the Closet" - in the single, the woman's voice is different when compared to the music video.
  • "Jam" – the "hoo" sound before Michael Jordan passes the ball to Michael Jackson is not heard.
  • "Heal the World" – has an added intro that can be seen on Dangerous – The Short Films.
  • "Who Is It" – has some parts of the instrumental rearranged compared to its previous release.
  • "Will You Be There" – the video is not the one on Michael Jackson's YouTube page. It is an alternate version of the one in Dangerous – The Short Films; a few seconds of the audio at the beginning is missing, and the ending is different from the one previously released, as there is no angel flying down to Michael; instead, he sings on his own, and slow motion shots of the audience are shown.
  • "Gone Too Soon" – is the version found on Michael Jackson's YouTube page and not the one previously released as seen on Dangerous – The Short Films.
  • "Scream" – is the version with the word "fucking" and Janet's middle finger uncensored.
  • "You Are Not Alone" – is the version without Michael naked with angel wings on his back.
  • "Earth Song" – most of the sound effects are muted and the ending message is not shown.
  • "Blood on the Dance Floor" – the original version of the music video is replaced with the Refugee Camp Remix, as shown on HIStory on Film, Volume II.
  • "Ghosts" – is the trimmed-down 3.5½-minute long edit of the movie of the same name.
  • "You Rock My World" – full 13-minute version is featured along with original credits.
  • "Can You Feel It" – includes the ending credits.
  • "They Don't Care About Us" (Prison Version) – has a disclaimer at the beginning, plus different scenes than those of the first broadcast on TV.
