Unit 11.


  • 1.1
  • Personality test


I recently took a personality test, my result was ‘’a debater’’ I was satisfied with my results as I feel like the information provided explained my personality very well and I wasn’t surprised at how the debater personality described me. The majority of the careers I researched and want to go into divisive controversial skills by using art and film as a form of tool to provide those factors as well as being an observant character and outspoken personality, which are some characteristics that I have.

’’The Problem is not the problem, the problem is your attitude about your problem mate.

This is a quote from my type of personality which is Jack Sparrow for the Pirates of the Caribbean series.

ENTP Personality (“The Debater”) | 16Personalities (2017) 16Personalities. Available at: https://www.16personalities.com/entp-personality (Accessed: 26 June 2017).

I often find myself in thought, dreaming of creative ideas of how to make certain sequences in movies to impress other people so they can understand on what I am trying to say and achieve. My fear is being close to death, to confront other people when necessary and social abilities in certain aspects.

I am at my happiest when I am working or doing things alone or the way I would like them to be done but most of all just simply watching movies and making things and have other people react to them and being in conversations that interest me that enables my true personality to shine through. My natural ability to interact with people makes me often uncomfortable due to people’s own interest that doesn’t interest me of the way they are in general as I like to involved in subject matters that people don’t understand or don’t have any interest. I am only confident when I am interested in something and often leave a ground breaking impression on everyone I meet whether it’s good or bad. I consider myself incredibly loyal and trustworthy either due to my vulnerability and understanding people’s own emotion and I love making impacts on other people that they have never seen before and I am only a good listener if I am interested in what I am hearing if not I am terrible at it. My horoscope is Leo, which I would say represents me very well. I have an ego and love being in centre stage as well as being creative have strong idealism and leadership without any little ambition while fun in the same time. And I get angry over things that have not enough authenticity.

  • Evaluating music video

For my project I have created an independent music video to artist Jon Smith song ‘’My Own Effigy’’. The aim of my project was to find out what makes an art house music video as well as introducing the younger generation into independent art house music. I chose to create a music video as it is something that I have never done before, I watch thousands music videos daily but never see the work that goes into them, therefore I thought this would be a great opportunity to learn more about this area of media.


The few strengths that feature within my final major project were the editing skills, camera angles and shots, the takes, the acting, the research and the locations used to film. Changing the colour in the editing room from black and white to colour really helped set the style and mood and atmosphere at was I was aiming for, it really helped me give the video more of a smooth atmospheric feeling and allowed the audience to relate to the psychological complexity the protagonist is going through in the video. Using a range of long camera shots and angles helped tell the story and gave an insight as to what the independent rock genre is about. The locations used helped set the scene and worked well with the music giving it more emotion. Overall the research and pre-production was also a strong strength as it had allowed me to get a solid idea of what makes an experimental music video as well as finding out the point of view of other fellow classmates as well as friends, tutors and family before filming and editing.

  • 2.1 Evaluating 3 creative CV’s


  • Strength’s

In the CV’s up above I really like the way the CV is constructed it resembles an actual newspaper only coloured with certain dots of advertisement this is a good point for getting a great interview because it really explains more of your personality by not only what is written on the paper but the way the CV is colourfully constructed.

  • Weaknesses

However the creative colourful look of the CV also can seem like a low point simply due to the lack of professionalism even if the person is absolutely professional on what he does. The CV would do well in a creative arts studio or even media but it wouldn’t be too well in business works.


In the CV up above is a lot more simple as well as it is stylish than the above this one.


This CV has personality yet cool and professional in the same time the fact that it looks sharp and simple while being creatively articulate in the same time. This CV would suit well for business interview as well as entering the arts.


There are very little weaknesses that I can see in this CV however there are some minor glitches that could be seen as a minor issue as some of the words are spelled sideways instead actual normal shape which could be a slight confusion for the interviewer in a job interview.


In the CV up above resembles a lot like the TV show Mad Men.  However it is unflinchingly stylish but there is something that could be seen a little arrogant for the CV.


In the image up above the significant sharpness is uncanny and stylish as hell. It is straight to point simple and utterly cool which would give a good personality opinion especially during an interview.


The low point is that there are no real flaws in the explanation of what the CV is telling however there is an ounce of ego because it feels like the person who the wrote the CV is trying to be Jon Hamm’s character from Mad Men.

  • What do I know about myself Interview


  • Your childhood and music you listened as a child ?

When i was a kid i used to listen to movie scores. Including the theme from Robin hood and Disney Pixar movies like the original Toy Story.  But if there was a song that stood out to me till this day when i was around 4 was a song called high by Lighthouse family. I would listen to the themes of Harry Potter, Spider man and others. Rock and all the great artists of that time which were in the late 90’s early 2000’s i wasn’t really aware of and did’t catch my interest until much later on.

  • What was your favorite music and artist you listen to as a child ?

High by Lighthouse family.

  • What was the first CD you had and listen to ?

I don’t really remember the full title but it was something like TV express in which all the songs were from themes of TV in England from the 60’s, 70’s and 80s.

  • Did your parents influenced your taste in music or who did ? What is the story behind ?

They partially did, My dad less so than y Mum.Because he was into John Lennon and David Bowie and still is. Those singers i didn’t thought they were really good.  My mother was into European music but also Pet shop boys and so forth. My interest in music was a more independant approach. It was the songs put in movies that influenced me the most.

  • What was the music you listened to in your early teens and who were your influences?

80’s music like Blondie, Michael Jackson, Billy Ocean, New Order, early 90’s rap like Ice cube.  This was all because of Rockstar games and Grand Theft Auto.

  • What was your favorite music video at the time and why ?

Still is to this day Alizee Moi Lolita. I fall in love with Alizee every time i watch the video because it’s super romantic and sexy.

  • Is there an interesting story or anecdote from your teen time influenced by music you listened to ?

When I was in College in France i was with a group of friends who were deeply inspired by the gangster rap of 50 cent, 2 ac, Eminem etc and we would copy there attitudes and listen consistently their music.

  • Has your taste in music changed now and what kind of music you listen to now ?

I despise commercials songs of today, i have to bear the trash they put on in Clubs. But i search for more older music which i think is better than modern day music experimental, independant, motivational music that i can visualize for a movie sequence. But i like all sorts of genres of music but i don’t really pay attention to the lyrics and make just sure if i like the sound of the song being played.

  • Who are your favorite music artists and why ?

Leftfield because they play electronic music but have a deep atmosphere in each song that feels original unique and dreamy other world like.

  • What does music mean to you and purpose does it serve in your life ?

Music is huge source of inspiration for me to have an idea for movies and stories and sequences. It helps jogg without stopping and think of thinks better and clearer.

  • Research

Research topic for report

Music interests me because it is a Grande inspiration for catching ideas. I don’t necessarily focus to much on the lyrics to the song but more on the music and the Rhythm. I like all types of songs especially the ones that have an exotic motivational boost to them occasionally I like uplifting songs but I love cool songs and atmospheric ones too. Example of my preferences is in the vain of something like Depeche mode, Leftfield, New Order, Chrysta Bell, Exotica, Mylene Farmer, Prodigy, Goldfrapp, Julian Winding. Howver I despise the likes of Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Chris Brown and other modern day junk in that vain. Aimed for mindless tweeny teenagers.

At this moment I am currently working on a song called My Own Effigy.

  • What makes a good video

A great music video is one that fits the style of the song not necessarily the lyrics but the mood and vibe.







terrific editing.

unpredictable source of creativity.
