Introduction:
I have always had a love for video games. Some sustained my interest whereas others didn’t. A video game that particularly captured my interest was the FIFA Franchise by EA Sports. At the tender age of 8 years, I was given my first gaming console. The first game I bought was FIFA 06, little did I know that I would form such a strong bond with the game. Avid gamers (such as myself) all around the world perceive the FIFA Franchise as the best football game ever created. I am also a budding footballer, hence further increasing my zeal fo r the FIFA Franchise. When I was presented with the Personal Project as a student of year 11 , I realized that I was at a disadvantage. Being a new student, I was introduced to the Project relatively late as opposed to my peers who were provided with sufficient time over the summer vacation to narrow down their thoughts and come up with a topic for their respective projects. Facing time constraints, I promptly started work on my project, pondering upon topics for my project. I decided that my project be specific towards my interests and passions as I would have to work on it over an extended time period. I brainstormed my ideas and narrowed my topics down to Technology, Evolution, Sports and Helping out the Community. (A brainstorm of my initial ideas for the personal project can be seen in Appendix A) On discussion about my Personal Project with my parents, I told them that I intend to write a written piece of work on the development of Apple’s greatest creation - The iPhone. My dad didn’t support my choice as he thought it wasn’t original and that I would be scrutinized as there are numerous books on the topic.

Heading back to the drawing board, I felt that my ideas were a bit too literal and that I needed to think outside the box. Immediately, my eyes fell upon my Xbox 360 and I came up with a remarkable suggestion, why not do my Personal Project on the EA Sport’s FIFA franchise? Gaming was something that played an integral role in my lifestyle and this topic was original, fascinating and most importantly; something I was passionate about and willing to work on for many months. I decided to focus on the aspect of evolution for the project; more specifically how the FIFA Franchise has evolved over the years (1993-2012).

The Goal:
After finalizing a topic for my Personal Project; I decided that the main objective of my project would be to show viewers how the FIFA Franchise has evolved over a span of 20 years. I shall achieve this by creating a video. I felt that a video would be the most effective way to convey my views on the topic as it would appeal to a large number of viewers (more specifically; my chosen demographic-gamers) as opposed to a written piece of work.

Area of Interaction:
Since I was creating a video from scratch, the Area of Interaction best suited for my project was Human Ingenuity mainly focusing on 2 guiding questions, ‘Why do we create?’ and ‘What are the consequences?’, I was set out to investigate the relationship between my chosen AOI and my project. It seemed appropriate as I was creating a video on something that I was passionate about. I also wanted to convey a message as to how the FIFA Franchise has evolved over the years. Hence, if my video had a successful outcome, I would be able to convey this message effectively answering the second guiding question.
