Sony Music Presents Michael Jackson The CD Manufacturing Process of History

Creative Visual Productions was contracted by Sony Music to create an instructional video for Michael Jackson called “The Making of History”, detailing the manufacturing process of his greatest hits History CD. Creative Visual Productions documented on video the technical process of how the CDs are mastered and replicated. From the delivery of the tape masters, to glass mastering, quality control testing and distribution, Creative Visual Productions had the employees from each department explain on videotape their role in the entire manufacturing process. Michael Jackson and Epic Records liked the video so much that they used clips of the video on MTv to promote the album.

“Sony Music landed Michael Jackson’s Greatest Hits “History” project and asked Creative Visual Productions to
produce a manufacturing process video to show Michael Jackson a behind the scenes look of how
the CD’s are made. Creative Visual Productions did a masterful job of using our own employees involved in the
day-to-day process and each person’s role. Michael loved the video and used selected segments
which aired on MTV.”
