Portfolio – Introduction

This is my final major projects (FMP) portfolio for the course of Media Production, Television, Print and Radio level 3, Year 2. What my project is about is asking the question, “What do we see through life?” By this I mean what do we see throughout life and forget because we cant capture that moment and keep it forever, unlike a photograph.

The first part of this portfolio will help you understand the person behind this project, myself, and will tell what my experiences are within this course as well as what lead me to do this for my project. After all of this, this part of the portfolio will finish with my research plan.

The Project:

What makes me do the project is the motivation to make people feel a certain way. When I look through photographs of the past, they make me feel all kinds of emotions from happiness to sadness. I believe this is a powerful thing we can experience and should experience it more often. Some of the best feelings you can have is remembering something you totally forgotten, and I want to recapture that in the style of a scrapbook. When planning this project, I wanted it to feel as real and special as I could. I could easily make this person I am creating have the perfect life with no tragedies or sad moments, however I don’t want to do that. I want to make this person feel as alive as we are. This is why I plan on making my research count and getting personal with others. I plan on finding out some memories, some happy and some sad, from other people that are comfortable to share some of their fondest memories and recreate them through this persons eyes.

Another personal experience that influenced my choice for this project is the fact I love photography. I believe it is a powerful tool that can capture moments and freeze time. Nothing else can really do that the way a simple photograph can and I do believe that our eyes can be just as powerful. One of the things that I remember leading me into this frame of mind was a simple advert for our eyes and how we should look after them. It had a man just walking through a room, and every time he blinked, a Polaroid photo fell to the floor, as if he captured it with a camera, sending the message that our eyes are cameras and we should protect them. Seeing those pictures fall to the floor was an inspiring message that I still remember to this day. Another thing that is somewhat linked to this is recently when watching camera reviews on YouTube when wanting to purchase my own camera, I stumbled across something. It was a Canon advert about how there are over 7 billion people on Earth and we all see the world differently. During the advert it focuses on what different eyes can see and what you experience which was another inspirational and artist motivator for me.

Another advert that I saw on television and online which has inspired me is an advert from the “Save the Children” where it follows a single child’s life within a year starting from her birthday and the events that occur. It cleverly done by firstly making it look all normal, happy and peaceful then throughout the video it slowly drops hints that the world this person lives in is going horribly wrong until it goes into an all out disaster. It shows the child loose her home, loved ones, health decline and in constant danger, only for her to end up somewhat alone at the end exactly one year onward on her birthday showing the after effects of what she has experienced.

The goal for me with this project is to possibly help people remember things they may have forgotten while growing up. Time passes fast and we cant remember or capture every moment that was special to us or someone else, while with something like this, we can relate, remember and relive the moments that we saw throughout life. The perfect thing about this project, it is for any given target audience, any gender, race, sexual preference and religion. The one audience member it should target more are the ones who have grown up past the early stages of adulthood, however it can be looked at from any age group too as we never stop capturing moments or forgetting those special moments that we should keep safe.

Who am I?

I am an individual who thrives on being creative and expressing himself. I am not a fan of sitting around doing nothing or doing something that involves sitting around for hours on end typing away on a computer. Doing as such leads me to get frustrated and would much rather be going out and being creative and practical which is something I have been since I remember. Through this I learnt various skills and gain some experiences throughout life from working in the real world to discovering what I want to do in life for a career, as well as understand myself some more such as what are my likes and dislikes. Since this, I have gained a strong passion for the environment and how I love its natural beauty which I wish to preserve and protect. With this passion, I finally after years of questioning myself understood what I wanted to do with my life, and that is see the world, explore and capture as a landscape photographer which I am continuing to pursue. I also have a strong connection with the animal kingdom and their well being; so much so that I took a course at college for a year to study more about animal care.

I believe that I am a kind, caring individual that is respectful of everyone’s opinions and beliefs. Someone who makes others feel better about themselves rather than worse off. I do have a few phobias from spiders/bugs, which is ironic due to my love for the animal kingdom, but my main phobia is Thanatophobia, which is the phobia of death. This phobia terrifies me on a common basis, however it also motivates me to make the most of life as it is a one time thing so I do believe you should have fun, don’t let there be any chains holding you back (within reason!) and enjoy life to the fullest. This phobia of mine is another reason why I want to travel, to see as much as I can and create even more memories, friendships and explore this large world.

What did I learn on my course?

I went into this two year course having very little knowledge of anything media related. I didn’t really know how to record videos, take decent photographs, conduct radio interviews or write creative journalistic pieces. However, now I am approaching my final month of this course I can say that I am comfortable with pretty much all of these mediums. Over the past two years, I have completed many tasks and projects towards the final grades of this course. One of my personal favourites was a group project that we recently completed. It was a one minute video of any genre we liked but it couldn’t contain any dialog. As a group of three, we planned out a romance video called Platform 2. We all took different roles; I took the role of acting in the video as well as making my own edited version of it. It went so well that it was a runner up in a county competition at the creative design fest 2017.  https://www.creativedesignfest.co.uk/

What is my project about?

This project is going to be an online scrapbook of memories captured by the individuals eyes as if they were cameras. To capture the special moments from the moments of birth till the moments of independence, for this project, that will be the age of adulthood and this individual going off to university. It will follow the same person from start to finish and I am aiming for this to be as realistic as possible. From the innocent, cant do no wrong infants to the troublesome teenage years. It will be a journey and adventure filled with ups and downs so other people that are reading can relate and connect to it from their own personal experiences and background.

My role in this project is to be the designer, photographer and producer.

Why is my project important?

I feel like my project is important because it connects with the reader on a emotional level. Whether that is on a positive or negative note, it is still something that is powerful enough to make someone laugh, smile, cry or hurt. It is also something I am passionate about. I love photography and how it can freeze time which is the perfect message I am trying to send across, to be able to freeze time, freeze those moments and cherish them forever. I am also using this project as an opportunity to try out and test some new camera techniques to get different styles of photographs and see what works and what doesn’t work, which I shall evaluate during my post production.

My Research Plan.

Section 1, Interest/Topic/Theme:

I looked into a couple of photographers that have done similar projects in the past. Where they focus on the style of “point of view” photography such as Timur Zhansultanov who had an article written about him and his work. There are also a couple of books that my tutor recommended such as “The Fundamentals of Photography” by Tim Daly which shows different styles and techniques of photography. Finally, I shall look into books and magazines about what children especially do in their daily lives as they grow up in forms of learning and entertainment. (95 words)

Section 2, Why is it important? – Importance:

I want there to be emotion involved in my project, from both the creators point of view to the readers whether it is happiness or sadness. I want to show the ability to capture the moments in life and use them to reflect on our own past and remember the things we have forgotten through this fictional life I will create. I want to also show off the skills I have learnt throughout the course and try out some new things within this project that I hope will add to the project in a whole. (95 words)

Section 3, My research questions:

1/ What is the first thing you remember seeing?

2/ What is your earliest memory?

3/ What memory comes to mind when you think of your childhood?

4/ What memory comes to mind when you think of your teen-hood?

5/ Is there a memory which comes to mind that makes you feel happy?

6/ Is there a memory which comes to mind that makes you feel unhappy?

7/ Are there any mental images from any years of your life that stick out?

These will be sent out to people via an online survey for maximum and clear results. (98 words)

Section 4, Research Design:

The subjects i’m going to research are scrapbook designs to get an idea of how I want my online scrapbook to be laid out. I will be conducting a online survey asking the questions above to get as many memories and results as possible, and finally I will be looking into from various sources on what individuals, especially children growing up, do in their daily lives which I can input into this project. As this project goes along, I will gain more research with the more I try out and experiment with, as well as look into something deeper to get a better result for an image. (107 words)

Portfolio – Introduction

FMP – Research

What is my FMP?

Mindmap

My FMP is a online photography story book throughout someones live via their eyes. It will start from their birth, first sights, to the point where they are old enough to leave the nest and start out on their own life for uni/work. The idea behind this project is to think of someone’s eyes as a camera, capturing moments in your life and displaying them as a book. The question of my project is: “What do we see throughout life?”

What Research can I do?

I plan to research multiple things to cover this project. One of the things I will need to do is research and plan the stages of life the individual from baby to adult. What things they might see, interact with, behave with and react too. I can do this by doing some online research for secondary sources as well as doing questionnaires, interviews and/or surveys to find out what people can think of  that sticks out when they interacted with things at a certain age.

Once that is planned out, I will need to research the stages of eye development for the infant stages as a child’s eye sight isn’t clear / wide until a later age. Once I learn and find out all the information I need for this topic, I can research as well as practice methods on how to give off this effect with my camera. I can obtain this information by using both secondary research, primary and qualitative. If this however doesn’t happen due to it being a vast subject or not getting enough information to be comfortable to practice it in, I shall style all the images still through the point of view as planned but in the style of an online scrap book instead.

Finally, I will create a storyboard for m photography timeline. It will be around 5- images per year of age. I will design this in the usual style of a storyboard if this was a video, however keep the images basic due to there being so many because of the ages going between 0-18. Once this storyboard is done, I will be able to use it as a checklist for what photographs I will be taking.

With this information and research, I should be able to produce a final project without many flaws. It covers the topics I need to learn and understand as well as plans out my project smoothly so I can follow a complete timeline of what to do and how to do it. Once the research is complete I will create the storyboard, then proceed to complete the project by following it to the best of my ability.

Questions for Interview: These are the questions I shall be asking a group of people the following questions, aiming for simple answers. The reason for this is because I want the simplistic images of the words the say. If something needs describing or they want to explain in more detail, I will ask for them to do as so if they can.

1/ What is the first thing you remember seeing?

2/ What is your earliest memory?

3/ What memory comes to mind when you think of your childhood?

4/ What memory comes to mind when you think of your teen-hood?

5/ Is there a memory which comes to mind that makes you feel happy?

6/ Is there a memory which comes to mind that makes you feel unhappy?

7/ Are there any mental images from any years of your life that stick out?

Results: https://www.surveymonkey.com/analyze/Y_2FZ47639xaG1IPD4J7HRoWoK3KADGCr4TjZEtUbCIWw_3D

“Surveymonkey: Free Online Survey Software & Questionnaire Tool”. Surveymonkey.com. N.p., 2017. Web. 16 Mar. 2017.

Evaluation: Through these results, I can see that there is a vast amount of memories that people can have but can connect together in away. Some feedback I got about these questions was that they were rather difficult to answer and I got a response that looking back at some of their memories was almost painful and upsetting.

The results on the question about “are there any upsetting memories that come to mind” had some similar results such as loosing someone or failing at something. Another answer that had similar answers was the question of “What is the first thing you remember ever seeing?” which lead to answers mostly consisting of them seeing their mother and/or father.

From this information I have gathered, I have gained more of an idea of what I can capture throughout the photography progress and using some of these ideas to show through my project that life has many ups and downs like a roller coaster.

Project Layout Designs:

I am gonna have my project in the style of a scrap book. When asking around my class for some unique and personal design ideas, a couple of classmates offered to show me what their scrapbook designs looked like to give me a vast idea of what II should do with mine. Each page or two will be related to the age of the child, depending on what part of the book we are at. As the point of view individual is getting old, so do the pages with the surrounding pictures and related background growing up with them. This is one of the styles that I could do for my project, thanks to Zoe Midwinter, a scattered image style with interactive background text and images related to the images. I like how every page is different in its own way and how the images sizes and positions are all different on each page.

The next design I looked at was from another classmate, Meghan Truscott. Her scrapbook has a more simplistic and neat style to it unlike Zoe’s scrapbook. It has room for more images on it as well as some related captions that are next to some of the photos. Another thing I like about Meghan’s design is that it has a lot of subheadings such as “Sisters” and “Best Friends” so you know what you are gonna see on each page. It also has room for some little designs of art around some of the pages such as flowery banners and some little faces. This scrapbook is designed to look cute but maintain a consistent nostalgia feel to it as you read on. The style is simplistic and effective with pages easy to locate when you are looking for something specific. I would take the subheading idea from this design to help tell with my book what stage of growth we are in when you open the book on a random page.

After looking at both designs of these scrap books, I can see the pros and cons of each as well as see how both are effective and stylish to show off their images and tell a story. However, the style I would like to use for my project would be similar to the first scrap book design. I like how this one makes the pages look unique on every page with lots of information and creativity behind it all. I feel that I can make some pretty creative pages and evolve the book in general as the book moves forward to grow up with the child who is portrayed. A weakness of this design however could be that there can be too much on one page that will loose focus of the actual story being told, so finding the balance will need to be one of the top priorities.

Overall, my findings though not as vast as previous projects, have been effective. Through a simple survey, I found out a lot about many peoples past memories and favourite moments in their life which I will use towards my storyboard and book. I learnt that even though there are lots of happy memories that people cherish and protect, that there are also a lot of sad and dark memories that haunt the paint and cannot be forgotten, yet help us move forward and make the future us stronger because of them. So my images wont be just a “fairy tale” like story where there is only positivity and happiness, because that isn’t how life is sadly. It will show the struggles, challenges and tough times of a typical human being to help create a more believable and relatable person within the book.

With this topic that I have chosen, my research was limited, however it will continue to conduct research as the project goes on. I did surveys and interviews with other people to get into their mind and get some personal and unique information as well as read some personal stories of my own to get an idea of the timeline I will have to complete. I did look into the biology of the human eye’s development at a young age, but due to lack of source material that wasn’t online, as well as the interview with a local opticians having to be cancelled due to time constraints, I decided to not put any more pressure on the topic and move forward, using my contingency plan of laying it out as a scrap book instead. I would of liked to of continued to try and follow with the idea of the whole human eye development idea due to the chance to show off some unique camera skills and show real growth and progression in not just image form but also in senses. I feel it was the right call to do however as I don.t want to rush this project, nor make any mistakes because I set the bar too high. Through this research process, I have been able to conduct a large amount of primary and qualitative research with some secondary research too.

The next tasks for me now is to create a storyboard for all the years from the start of life to the age of independence (18). Once these storyboards are done, I can use them as a check list to take the photos of what I need to cover a page of each year, then design the background covers in relation to the age that they are.

Research Planning

What is my FMP?

My FMP is a online photography story book throughout someones live via their eyes. It will start from their birth, first sights, to the point where they are old enough to leave the nest and start out on their own life for uni/work. The idea behind this project is to think of someone’s eyes as a camera, capturing moments in your life and displaying them as a book. The question of my project is: “What do we see throughout life?”

What Research can I do?

I plan to research multiple things to cover this project. One of the things I will need to do is research and plan the stages of life the individual from baby to adult. What things they might see, interact with, behave with and react too. I can do this by doing some online research for secondary sources as well as doing questionnaires, interviews and/or surveys to find out what people can think of  that sticks out when they interacted with things at a certain age.

Once that is planned out, I will need to research the stages of eye development for the infant stages as a child’s eye sight isn’t clear / wide until a later age. Once I learn and find out all the information I need for this topic, I can research as well as practice methods on how to give off this effect with my camera. I can obtain this information by using both secondary research, primary and qualitative. If this however doesn’t happen due to it being a vast subject or not getting enough information to be comfortable to practice it into my practical work, I shall skip this part of the project and instead as a contingency plan make the project look more like a memory scrap book throughout the ears.

I will also need to browse things such as magazines and books of different stages of development throughout life to gain an understanding of what I should capture and how I should display it. I need to gain an understanding of what others might of experienced through life that I might not have throughout my childhood/teens.

Also, I will be asking others about their memories and experiences that I can use within this project. There will be set questions that I will layout and take notes during the interview to show my research.

Finally, I need to work out production costs and set ups. What equipment will I need to complete this project? How will I obtain the photographs, how I will edit them and display them. I have already asked a few people of friends and family that have have offered to help and assist me  that will be credited within the project.

Research Planning

FMP – Research – Questions

My FMP is going to be a photograph story book montage of the beginning of a boys life from the point of birth to moving out for work/university to become his own person. These are the questions I will be using to obtain some primary research.

1/ Do you have any favourite memories from when you were an infant? Do you remember from any stories told by your family or from photos people might have shown you as a child?

When I was very young, around 4-6 months old my mother took me to see my gran. When we were leaving hers to make our way home my mother bumped into someone she knew and stopped at the top of the hill that my gran lived on to talk to her and have a catch up. My mother thought she applied the breaks onto the pram that was holding me on to talk to this person, however she did not. As soon as she let go I rolled down the hill with her and her friend chasing for me. Luckily, I stopped and got caught on the curb without any harm apart from giving my mother and her friend a bit of a heart attack.

2/ Do you have any favourite memories from when you were a child? What was your favourite moment from primary school? Did you have any friendships from then that you still have to this day?

When I was in primary school, there was our year 6 play. I was in charge of the sound such as the audio effects and whenever the songs came on playing the backing tracks. There was one time where the person who was playing the PE teacher was sick and I had to cover them which I was dreading due to me having stage fright at the time. When it came for me to preform my part, I was shaking so much that I forgot the script and kinda just winged it, but it did some how all work out. Once it was over I returned to doing the audio again to get told by my teacher that I did a great job, even though it was very random but it apparently made the part more funny which was good. It is something that me and my friend Reece, who I have been friends with since year 3 still talk about to this day and have a good laugh.

3/ Do you have any favourite memories from when you were a teenager? Any events or special occasions that really stand out? Any friendships you made that you still have to this day? Any memories from secondary school? Any relationship memories?

When I was a teenager at secondary school, around year 9, I for some reason got into a lot of fights. I usually came out on top when it came to fights and built a bit of a reputation as “the one to challenge and beat” which I kind of just accepted. I had fights with quite a few people in my year and won which lead the higher years also getting interested. I fought the year above people and won practically most of them too, however then I got challenged by a few in year 11 who were a lot bigger than me. I foolishly accepted their challenge (I think I was being too cocky) and fought them one after the other. Even though I was hurt I did somehow win against them. That is when this year 11 called Thomas who I would later nickname Hutch challenged me later on. I accepted, probably thinking just another one to beat, which was a great mistake. Turns out, he is a black belt in karate and he completely dominated me, beating me so bad that he actually carried me to my next class.

A normal person would give up and call it quits from there, but not me, I think my pride was damaged and I wanted a rematch. I was by next to a building wall and he was up on a hill in front of me. He accepted and ran towards me, once he got close I side stepped and picked him up, quickly finishing him by dropping him straight onto concrete. That hurt him but the real thing he noticed was how close his head was to the wall next to me which was mere inches away from hitting him and busting him open. I helped him up after he admitted defeat and me and Hutch have been best mates ever since for 7/8 years.

4/ Is there anything through growing up that you regret or wish didn’t happen?

Only one thing really comes to mind. A cliche typical teenage break up. Long story short, I liked a girl called Enya from practically the first day of secondary school in year 7. I saw her often as she was in most of my classes and in my form so practically daily. We didn’t really speak until late year 8 – early year 9. We soon became friends in year 9 and became very close by the end of the year. We met up throughout the summer and continued to be friends at the start of year 10. I then confessed to her later on along the line which lead to me being used, manipulated and bullied by her and her friends. People were turned against me and it made me mentally sick, so bad that I dropped out by year 11. It wasn’t a fun time and I regret most of it and the events leading up to it.

FMP – Research – Questions

Personality Traits and Identification

Personality Type:  CAMPAIGNER PERSONALITY (ENFP, -A/-T)

The Campaigner personality is a true free spirit. They are often the life of the party, but unlike types in the Explorer Role group, Campaigners are less interested in the sheer excitement and pleasure of the moment than they are in enjoying the social and emotional connections they make with others.

They tend to see life as a big, complex puzzle where everything is connected

Campaigners are fiercely independent, and much more than stability and security, they crave creativity and freedom.

Luckily, Campaigners know how to relax, and they are perfectly capable of switching from a passionate, driven idealist in the workplace to that imaginative and enthusiastic free spirit on the dance floor, often with a suddenness that can surprise even their closest friends.

Campaigners will spend a lot of time exploring social relationships, feelings and ideas before they find something that really rings true. But when they finally do find their place in the world, their imagination, empathy and courage are likely to produce incredible results.

Strengths:

  • Know How to Relax – It’s not all “nature of the cosmos” discussions with Campaigners – people with this personality type know that sometimes, nothing is as important as simply having fun and experiencing life’s joys. That Intuitive trait lets Campaigners know that it’s time to shake things up, and these wild bursts of enthusiastic energy can surprise even their closest friends.
  • Curious – When it comes to new ideas, Campaigners aren’t interested in brooding – they want to go out and experience things, and don’t hesitate to step out of their comfort zones to do so. Campaigners are imaginative and open-minded, seeing all things as part of a big, mysterious puzzle called life.

Weaknesses:

  • Find it Difficult to Focus – Campaigners are natural explorers of interpersonal connections and philosophy, but this backfires when what needs to be done is that TPS report sitting right in front of them. It’s hard for Campaigners to maintain interest as tasks drift towards routine, administrative matters, and away from broader concepts.
  • Overthink Things – Campaigners don’t take things at face value – they look for underlying motives in even the simplest things. It’s not uncommon for Campaigners to lose a bit of sleep asking themselves why someone did what they did, what it might mean, and what to do about it.
  • Independent to a Fault – Campaigners loathe being micromanaged and restrained by heavy-handed rules – they want to be seen as highly independent masters of their own fates, even possessors of an altruistic wisdom that goes beyond draconian law. The challenge for Campaigners is that they live in a world of checks and balances, a pill they are not happy to swallow.

 

Relationships: Campaigners go all-in with their relationships, and if they fall apart despite their efforts, they can end up plagued with questions about why the relationship failed and what they could have done differently – without a buoy, these thoughts can crush Campaigners’ self-esteem as they sink into depression

Campaigners may be reluctant to open up and commit, and it can take years for a partner to navigate their bewildering depth and intensity, falsely believing that Campaigners’ enthusiasm and apparent openness means that they wear everything on their sleeves.

Friendships: Campaigners’ interest in others can be a double-edged sword – this pure idealism comes with certain expectations, and too often Campaigners hold their friends in an unrealistic light, expecting them to keep up with the constant flow of ideas and experiences that they consider integral to life.

https://www.16personalities.com/enfp-personality

Campaigners tend to get deeply involved in others’ lives, going to great lengths and efforts to be the selfless, caring and supportive people they are, and all the while forget to take care of themselves.

Careers:  Where Campaigners do not shine is in systems of strict regimentation and hierarchy, such as military service. Campaigners thrive on the ability to question the status quo and explore the alternatives, and if this is a quality that is not just unappreciated but actually frowned upon, this will not only make them unhappy, but it may even threaten their emotional stability. Repetition, predictability, boredom… while some Sentinel types may appreciate predictability and clear hierarchies, these are not selling points for Campaigners.

Many more career options satisfy these needs, and not just the scientific ones – writing, journalism, acting and TV reporting all give Campaigners a chance to explore something new every day and stir the pot a little while they’re at it. It may come to pass though, that the best way forward for Campaigner personalities is to establish themselves as entrepreneurs and consultants, blazing their own trails and taking on whatever project is most fascinating

Conclusion: Few personality types are as creative and charismatic as Campaigners. Known for their idealism and enthusiasm, Campaigners are good at dealing with unexpected challenges and brightening the lives of those around them. Campaigners’ imagination is invaluable in many areas, including their own personal growth.

According to this website, I would be ideal for some practical jobs such as care work and things related to media. I have worked in the care industry over the past 4/5 years and seek to pursue a career as a photographer which this website indicates would be a strong career choice for me. I have the interest, drive, passion and creativity to follow this career choice and would be something that I would not get bored with as it is different each day with new things to see and capture.

Evaluation:

I was satisfied with my results. I have done this test in the past and got a different result but seeing them compared together I can see that I am a more creative/practical person over someone who prefers theory and sitting behind a desk. I am also continued to be identified as a free spirit which is the way of life I live.

This test has identified my strengths and weaknesses quite accurately. Some strengths of mine I would say are true within this test are my curiosity, knowing how to relax, observant and energetic (within reason) while my weaknesses are also pretty accurate. Examples of these are overthinking things,  preferring to work independently as well as getting bored and losing enthusiasm for basic/tedious work. These weaknesses are something I would like to improve on especially the overthinking and getting bored easily with the tedious tasks.

Looking at the job areas that relate to my personality type would be to work in a carer industry or within the media industry. As previously stated within this post, I have worked in the care industry for 4/5 years as well as pursing a career in the media industry by doing photography. These skills will be shown through my practical work and my portfolios to display.
