1.3 Major Project Proposal Research

As part of my Major Project Proposal I discussed existing material that characterises mental illnesses to in order to make them easier to relate to.

I discuss the video below called ‘The Black Dog of Depression’ by World Health Organisation and how the use of the dog to represent depression is successful as everyone has experience owning a pet.

In collaboration with WHO to mark World Mental Health Day, writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone tells the story of overcoming the “black dog of depression”.

Please refer to this post when reading 1.3 Major Project Proposal.

Thank you.

Major Project Proposal.

Broad Outline

For my final major project, I want to create a moving image informational video. This video will illustrate social anxiety, and what social anxiety is from a personal point of view. Using personal experiences as well as other socially anxious people’s experiences, I want to create a short animation that shows how a socially anxious person feels.
