For my passion project I am making a cake the cake up the top is what I hope my cake will look like when I am done. I am half way thought writing my shot list I am trying to do a lot more shots and different editing techniques for this film so I can not just improve on the cake making skills but also my editing and filming skills. I am going to try and make the fondant soon before I film the video so I can learn some tricks and see if I can really do it. My mum is going to get in touch with her friend from a cake shop in south Melbourne I forgot what it was called. We don’t know if he has time to help me make my cake. It is fine if he dose say no because I can just make it at home. If he dose say yes then I mite change what the cake looks like because he is a chef so he will teach me more. So it is hard for me to right a scripted now because we have not heard back from the chef.


When I found out we were doing passion projects in term 3 I immediately new that I wanted to make a cake. I chose do make a cake because I have always wanted to learn how to make fondant to put on my cake.

I have never made fondant before so this will hopefully challenge me. I am not just making fondant I am also making a 5 or 6 rainbow layered cake to put my fondant of top of . I have made a rainbow layered cake before but never 5 or 6 layers so this will be something new.

I am going to make a vanilla cake batter and I then will colour them my 5 or 6 colours. For my fondant I have decided to make a marshmallow fondant I have a recipe for it at my house.

I am going to film in my kitchen and I will need a tripod and a camera. I also want to film me making the cake from a lot of different angles so that is why I will be needing a tripod.

I am so exited to make my cake and see if it tastes and looks as good as I hope. I am also going to be away for the last two days of term 3 so I am hoping to get it done before I go away.



For my OTTT project I have decided to do the history of rip curl. I decide to chose rip curl because of its amazing history and how successful it has become.

Rip curl is one of the largest board and wetsuit brands in Australia, Europe and south America. When rip curl first started it was just sold boards. However in 1969 Alan green (a local surfer and he also spends a lot of time at wetsuit drive company.) came across rip curl from then on he help make wetsuits the first sewing machine that they used when Alan green came was the pffaf 138 zig zag. I wonder what that sewing machine look like.

The story that I chose was how rip curl started. I chose this story because rip curl such a big company and  I wanted to know how it started. In march 1969 to surfing friends Doug Warbrick and Brian singer, saw each other on gilbert street in Torquay. Claw had just finished a summer of shaping boards and Brian was about to go back teaching as a since teacher.

as they keep talking about how amazing the waves were this summer at bells beach they strait away thought that they needed a way to keep surfing bells beach but how.

Claw then had a thought, but little did he know that this idea that 2 friends had come up. Claw then said to Brian do you want to start making surfboards together. Brian then thought about what claw had just said to him this would mean I could surf so much more and then right there and then brain said yes. A few days later Brian quit his job as a teacher.

In April 1969 the first rip curl boards were made. Claw was doing 4 boards a week in there garage and brain was sanding a making fins.

I would really like to make a film on how rip curl started.
