I am dying to know, were any of the "HIStory" recording sessions filmed at all?

Bill Bottrell:
There was often a handheld video camera shot by a trusted employee, like Brad. Occasionally, a full film crew would come in, as in the Andre Crouch choir session for "Earth Song."

I heard you videotaped the "Invincible" studio sessions. Have you released that yet?

Rodney Jerkins:
Shh! [Laughs] I'll just say Michael asked me to document everything. And I did. And I'm sure one day it'll see the light of day. I got to make sure it's made in the way Michael would want to see it.
