This is my favorite Michael Jackson video, but that is not why I included it on my Inspiration Wall. The video has a certain style that I would love to bring into Dragons of Night.
I love the style of the clothes, the smoke laden air, but the thing I am attracted to most is the 20's speakeasy. There is something about a rebel in a suit. I would like to bring some aspects of that style into the story and setting, but there will definitely be at least one speakeasy in the story, though it will be underground for a different reason.
The video has a mystic/magical air about it born from Michael's lighter than than air dancing, not to mention the defiance of gravity. I really want to capture that magical effortlessness in the story.
