    Break Away is a short 2d animation created to encourage friends and family to educate themselves on domestic violence in the United States. The animation opens with one statistic, "Every 9 seconds in the US, a woman is assaulted or beaten. I animated three incidents of what domestic violence could look like. Near the end the survivor breaks free from the chaos. My intention is to spark the conversation on what a healthy relationship looks like, and to encourage others to speak up for those stuck in a violent or mentally abusive relationship. The figures in the animation only illustrate one type of domestic violence: physical violence between heterosexual partners. I hope to continue a series that illustrates statistics for the gay, lesbian, and transexual communities as well as how mental and financial abuse are a type of domestic violence. Thank you for watching. I encourage you to share and start having the conversation with your loved ones to make a difference. Read Less
