What I want to make for my FMP
For my FMP I want to make a Fashion documentary in a factual style. As of now this has been my
Idea of my FMP all year because I think that it will be the best way to express my skills on the topic
of fashion which I am heavily interested in. The reason I want to make a documentary is because I
think that it’s the best way of involving lots of different styles of video for example, I want to
showcase lots of different models with their own specific fashion aesthetic with videography skills
almost in style of a music video however I also want to include an educative aspect of the
documentary where I can connect to my audience and teach them things about fashion styling. I
think that fashion is a good topic to make my FMP about as coming into 2022 it is of high relevance
around 16-24 year olds all over social media. More and more fashion ideas and trends are gaining
more publicity in the modern day so I think that making this documentary will be something most if
not all of my audience will be interested in looking at and can relate to. I want to finish the project
with a documentary which I can publish and looks good as a part of my portfolio going forward
into University. I want to create a video which can inspire my audience to try a new aesthetic of
clothing or be satisfied by the clothing showed rather than be apart of the judgement toxicity which
surrounds 16-24 year olds when it comes to fashion. An alternative idea to a documentary would be
making a documentary series of 3-5 minute videos where I compress the content into episodes
which I like the idea of as I would be able to showcase all of the fashion aesthetics more specifically
and they wouldn’t be rushed or cut down for the documentary so I will have to see if this option is
better.
Why am I interested in fashion
A big reason I am interested in fashion is because of the impact that it has on the world. I think that
people don’t realise how important it is in every day life seeing other peoples clothes and how
people judge and view that person. I think that what people wear can express and foreshadow the
personality of the person behind the clothes or what they are interested in . It suggests the persons
culture, beliefs they follow and background. Here are some examples:
Skating culture fashion Goth fashion
culture
UK Road Fashion
culture
As you can see people are so creative with the way they dress and all look completely different which
is what I like and in my eyes is the beauty in modern day fashion as people can be expressive and
dress in the way which they want to dress. Personally throughout my whole life I wouldn’t say I have
ever fit within one culture and have had an ever changing personality and so I think that this can be
evident in my fashion sense as I like to try ever different kind of fashion aesthetic. Here are some
examples…
‘Soft boy’/Tyler the
Creator aesthetic
Japanese street fashion/
Jaden smith aesthetic
Road/Football
inspired aesthetic
Skating/90s inspired
aesthetic
As you can see my fashion style is very versatile and different because I like fashion and the different ways to
express sides my personality within my clothes. I think that peoples fashion is heavily influenced by the media and
people they follow online. For me I like to make outfits which are influenced by my favourite music artists a bit like
how tiktok creator wisdom kaye makes anime character influenced outfits.
Why am I interested in Factual/Documentary
video
I enjoy watching documentaries because you can be way more creative in them then films with set stories. I've
seen ideas such as VLOG elements, podcast elements, interviews and animated graphics being put into
documentary which is why I think making one will get the best out of my media strengths and ideas. Whenever I
watch a documentary there is always something to take from it or I'm given a thought which impacts a decision I
may make in future. This is an effect which I want to try and involve in my FMP when it comes to fashion. I want
my audience to see the beauty which I see in other fashion aesthetics which they may not see originally.
Out of the 5 projects which I have completed in the course 4 of them have been video based projects so I feel as
though my video making and editing skills on software like adobe premier pro has developed to a high standard
and is my strongest ability. However though I have enjoyed using photoshop in smaller projects I have done
outside of college projects and the little time I've made print based projects in college such as magazine covers
and promotional posters.
In second year of this course, I have been mainly developing my factual project skills as the first project I had
made a football factual documentary. I made it on a topic which I am interested in however the project came out
rushed and to a standard which I wasn’t happy with so in the second project of the year the ‘GRID’ project, I made
a factual social media video which improved upon all my faults from the first project. It was on theme of fashion
where I explored ways which sportswear is integrated into fashionable outfits. I also went into detail on the sports
fashionwear industry and how its grown dramatically in the last 10 years. This project upgraded my knowledge on
the fashion industry which has set me up well for making a factual/documentary project fashion based in my
FMP
.
I watch a lot of fashion social media content creation and till this point never really watched a proper fashion
documentary. Obviously when it comes to research stage, I will watch some for some advice and inspiration
however I think a reason why I want to fulfil my idea is because I want to make something very original, a
Wisdm8 – TikTok Creator/ Influencer
One of my biggest influences on social media is Wisdom Kaye who is a
tiktok creator who takes ideas from things he likes and integrates them
into high end fashion outfits; best exampled would be his most recent
upload on his page the left as he takes his interest in animated tv
characters and makes outfits according to that character. What makes
Wisdom Kaye's content so creative and impressive is that although he
makes lots of money and is of such a high status in the online industry,
he makes his videos in the small corner of his room still which gives the
idea to his audience that anybody can look as good as him. This also
links to one of his mini-series on tiktok called ‘high-fashion runway outfits
on a budget’ where he puts together outfits of affordable prices for an
average person which are inspired from the expensive runway designer
clothing. Another reason why I am heavy influenced by wisdom kaye is
his response to the criticism of his outfits and shots he takes. Wisdom
quoted “I try to be different in everything I do,” he says. “Not just in my
looks, but in the way I shoot my videos.” this follows upon his exploration
into sometimes integrating women's clothing into his style because he
thinks it looks cool. Although some people may hate on it he’s opened a
huge gateway into the fashion industry because people will now be
influenced by him to try and wear something which they may not have
done before. This is a theme in fashion toxicity which I want to specify in
my FMP
.

Jakeceja – TikTok Creator/ Videographer
One of my inspirations going into my FMP is TikTok Creator Jake Ceja.
He post Videography content of random people in the street doing
whatever they are doing and adds music in the background to make
satisfying videos for his audience. Whenever I watch his videos I really
admire the cinematic techniques he uses to make just a regular video
of someone doing a regular thing into something really satisfying and
cool to watch. I want to create this effect in my FMP when showcasing
the different fashion aesthetics of my models as I think it could attract
everyone and can help towards my aim in having my audience try
something new or just be open to new fashion aesthetics.
My Strengths and Limitations
Strengths:
• I have got lots of fashion knowledge when it comes to different style categories which people follow in
which will help me have a clear understanding of what I want to make as a lot of my research will
already be done.
• I have lots of friends from different life cultures who dress different to one another which will help me to
capture all the different fashion aesthetics. If someone isn’t available as well I should be able to have
plenty of back ups.
• I have got experience in making a factual documentary styled video before in previous projects so I
have a good understanding of how to structure my video with the content I need to fit the conventions
of this type of video.
• I have developed skills in using adobe premier pro over my two year course and have practiced
specialised editing techniques
Limitations:
• I haven’t seen many fashion specific documentaries meaning I don’t have much direct fashion
documentary influence which could help or give me ideas for my video
• My camera knowledge is standard and for my Idea I will need to experiment and learn new videography
skills
How I can overcome my limitations
During my research period I would like to take some time to watch and study the main conventions and
techniques which directors use to make fashion documentaries. Analysing different types of them will give
me lots of inspiration and ideas which I can add to my base idea to make it more interesting.
During Pre-production when I am experimenting before my final piece, I think that It will be important for
me to practise and try different settings to get more used to using the camera. I will have lots of time
throughout research as well to use YouTube or a tutor to help with specific if I am attempting something
specific with camera equipment

If someone isn’t available as well I should be able to have plenty of back ups. • I have got experience in making a factual documentary styled video before in previous projects so I have a good understanding of how to structure my video with the content I need to fit the conventions of this type of video. • I have developed skills in using adobe premier pro over my two year course and have practiced specialised editing techniques Limitations: • I haven’t seen many fashion specific documentaries meaning I don’t have much direct fashion documentary influence which could help or give me ideas for my video • My camera knowledge is standard and for my Idea I will need to experiment and learn new videography skills
  • 9. How I can overcome my limitations During my research period I would like to take some time to watch and study the main conventions and techniques which directors use to make fashion documentaries. Analysing different types of them will give me lots of inspiration and ideas which I can add to my base idea to make it more interesting. During Pre-production when I am experimenting before my final piece, I think that It will be important for me to practise and try different settings to get more used to using the camera. I will have lots of time throughout research as well to use YouTube or a tutor to help with specific if I am attempting something specific with camera equipment
