Stats

Statistics can add authority, personal connection and urgency to a topic. Are you talking about people going hungry? What's the situation for people in Athens-Clarke county? Are you making a video for a group that fights poverty? What's the average income for this county? How many are in poverty? Statistics can be provided in a chart or graph, as a text quote, or part of a voice over as related images go by.
