This motion info graph will be done on the definition, origin, causes, treatment, symptoms, and statistics of anxiety. Ideally I will be focusing on the data for American college students, but many of the studies have a much more broad group. I will now describe how I will complete this assignment.
To define anxiety, I will be using mainly typographic elements to illustrate anxiety through the shape of the words. The origin of anxiety will be demonstrated with minor animation: a saber tooth tiger turning into a paper. For causes I will again use some more animation techniques to visually demonstrate the symptoms. I would like to find, but have not yet found a data representation of what percentage of people’s with anxiety is caused by which factors, but I am convinced I will find it with enough digging. I will be doing a similar technique to illustrate techniques for treatment. Next, I will delve into that which what percent of the population has anxiety, and then highlight specific groups and the prevalence of anxiety within them.
I will be utilizing data from a number of reliable sources, namely on NIMH to illustrate how anxiety is distributed across the population, which populations it affects more than others, and how much of those people are receiving adequate treatment. Much of the data around anxiety is wether or not a person has anxiety, which type they have, and the duration of the condition.
All in all, I hope to to concisely convey the knowledge about anxiety. For so many, mental conditions, disorders, and, diseases are stigmatized inner culture. I hope to latest shed a little more light into grey matter with this video
**I would like to note here, where I will not directly in the project that it is know that many people that should be diagnosed with anxiety are not, so the statistics are representative of only the diagnosed, not the people that silently struggle with the condition.
