Beyond the Moonwalk - A Dance Legacy Promo -
Condensed Sample Segment from "Beyond the Backslide" Episode - -
What follows is a condensed segment from the six part documentary series that relates true events which took place between 1981 and 1983... Events that led to the world's discovery of the most popular dance move of the last thirty years - "The Backslide" aka "The Moonwalk".
Beyond the Moonwalk is a must-see compelling, pop culture odyssey that reveals the untold story of the amazing, but un-credited street dancers who not only taught Michael Jackson "The Moonwalk" and other moves; but then went on to directly influence the greatest performers of our time. These are many of the same dancers appearing next to Michael on all his music videos. Today these artists remain largely mired in obscurity. However, their untold phenomenal influence on today's hip-hop, pop-music culture is unmistakable. Michael Jackson wasn't the only superstar whose performances were derived from the original dance moves by these unheralded artists. What's more, the legacy of these dancers can be traced to the evolution of a street movement that began as far back as 1970. Beyond the Moonwalk is a high energy, fun, cinematic quest that tells a four decade long story of a pop culture we thought we knew, but in reality was sculpted by the most unlikely of heroes. And, it's more than a single movie. Beyond the Moonwalk is a branded entertainment franchise that includes a docudrama motion picture, a documentary, a six part mini-series and ongoing ancillary properties .

NOTE: Beyond The Moonwalk falls under the Fair Use Doctrine and should be allowed to remain in public view. One prong of the Fair Use analysis reviews the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole. BTM is its own creation that uses small segments of the music clips and video content to build the story. The music and video used in the Beyond the Moonwalk story are established to support the story.
The other applicable prong of the test is the net effect of use upon the potential market for or value of the original copyrighted work. The market for the music and video content is currently in a growth cycle, stimulated recently by events that created a renewed interest. The creation of the Beyond the Moonwalk story will further that new interest in the genre and potentially support additional interest, thereby increasing the value of the market. The use will essentially create free publicity for the content and continue supporting a growth in its market value.
BTM also creates a transformative use with the inclusion of the music and video content. Beyond the Moonwalk - for the first time - tells the greatest story in pop culture history never told through a uniquely blended visual and audio narrative that integrates excerpts of new and old media (both musical and visual) into a cinematic gestalt. It is a living documentary time capsule using existing and new material intended to deliver a one-of-a-kind vicarious journey through forty years of pop culture - in order to demonstrate the influence that the featured dancers played in the expressions of soul, pop and hip hop artists.
