Winning four film festival awards in December and January, Napalm Clique's music video "Shining," triumphantly continues to keep the spirit of Michael Jackson alive. If you haven't been to the website, clique the title of this blog to view and find out more about the music video that is going down as the definitive MJ tribute! If you still have not seen the video I posted it below. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Rest in Power MJ. We miss you.

Entering its seventh year, The Accolade is an international, non-traditional, virtual venue. Awards go to those television producers who produce fresh, standout entertainment, animation and compelling documentaries. The Accolade is a showcase for cinematic gems and unique voices.

Annually, awards are given to filmmakers, television producers or videographers who make significant contributions to social change or a humanitarian effort. We are honored to win an award at a festival that represents the same values that Michael stood for!


The ION International Film Festival is a touring festival that is dedicated to promoting independent film, documentary, animation, music video and movie trailers. Each year ION is held in a different international location in an effort to promote global awareness and unity. ION strives to bring awareness to individuals and organizations who are creating socially relevant films to positively impact our worlds. In an effort to fully engage an array of transglobal creativity the festival hopes to provide a forum for everyone’s ingenuity to be premiered.

This marks Shining’s third film festival award, and its African premiere! Michael always loved visiting Africa and seeing how much all the little children had that same rhythm he discovered back when he was a kid. We’d like to thank the ION International Film Festival for its continued efforts in spotlighting socially relevant films, and more importantly… for helping to Keep Michael Shining!


The festival screening dates were on January 15th and 16th. This marks the second film festival award for Shining. In particular, we are pleased to see that Shining was recognized for its intricate editing and visual effects… something Michael himself would have been very proud of!


Founded in November 2001, the mission of the Urban Mediamakers is to promote and support a diverse independent media arts community in metro-Atlanta and worldwide. The annual signature event is the Urban Mediamakers Film Festival (UMFF), showcasing independent films with a strong emphasis of work produced by or featuring people

Shining screened on opening night along with Q: The Man, a documentary that looks at the “Godfather” role of music legend Quincy Jones in the lives of today’s top young artists. What better film to screen before the Shining music video than a documentary about Quincy Jones, the man that helped Michael Jackson produce Thriller and some of the best MJ tracks of all time!
