Anxiety in Teens
by Faith, Autumn, and Dylan
It's no secret that anxiety disorders exist in many people, but how common is it? With this story, our team wanted to cover a common issue regarding anxiety in teens.
People often confuse feelings of nervousness with an actual anxiety disorder. We decided to interview one teen that suffers from an anxiety disorder to get a deeper perspective on how intense it really is.
Creating this story was definitely challenging, especially since our interviewee wished to remain anonymous. B-roll was difficult to get because we couldn't show her face in any of it. We struggled to get b-roll for a while, but it eventually worked out for the better.
Another big issue we dealt with was our second interview. We were originally going to interview two subjects, but the second interview didn't turn out as we thought it would.
Overall, producing this story was interesting. It definitely shows anxiety is a real issue that many people overlook. We believe that this story will allow others to understand the effects of anxiety and the reality of the issue. We hope you enjoy!
