Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine, and his three children Prince, Paris and Blanket have put together a documentary to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the King of Pop's death, but fans must pitch in if they'd like to see the complete project.

The tribute documentary, titled Remembering Michael, promises to celebrate the life and legacy of Michael Jackson, but according to his mother, licensing his images and his music is so expensive that she needs the fans' support to complete the film.

Katherine encouraged fans to contribute to the project via FundAnything.com, a crowdfunding website. The donation amounts range from $10 to $12,500 and the perks include commemorative caps and t shirts, one-of-a kind posters and a private screening of the film at the Jackson Family Home.

While the project has already received $3,677 in donations, Howard Weitzman -- Jackson's Estate lawyer -- told TMZ that no one has contacted him for permission to use the singer's image and music.

"The Estate would never ask Michael's fans to contribute their money to finance any speculative project," he said.

"The Estate will continue to release only the highest quality finished, professional projects showcasing the genius and humanity of Michael such as the 'This is It' film and the 2 very successful shows with Cirque du Soleil."
