Story to tell in the infographic
Infographic Title: Hunger Games Survival Guide: 7 Real-Life Tips to Keeping the Odds Ever in Your Favor Intro content: When the Victors of previous Hunger Games are called back to the arena for the Quarter Quell, they’re faced with treacherous dangers each hour of the day. Although the trials faced in the 75th Hunger Games are not all real threats we face today, Survival Life wants everyone to learn a real world application and which survival skills may help keep you alive. Without sponsors and magical gifts these tips may come in handy one day! For the footer of the infographic, please include: 1) Survival Life logo which is attached 2) Call to action under/next to the logo: Before you find yourself stuck in a real-life survival situation, Survival Life can help provide knowledge, tips and pertinent skills.

Data to include in the infographic
Facts: 1. Saltwater Wave i. While a tsunami may not be an immediate threat to you, if stranded at sea, float on your back in calm water, float face down on your stomach in rough water emerging for air when necessary, and allow the current to take you to land or rescue. 2. Deadly Insects i. Just like the deadly insects within the arena, bug bites can ruin any outdoor activity. Try to find plants and herbs like lemon balm, citronella, or peppermint to ward off bugs. Mosquitos alone are responsible for over 1 million deaths a year! Don’t forget to shake out clothing to avoid other creepy crawlies. 3. Lightning i. To protect yourself from lightning, avoid open fields, elevated mountaintops, or watery areas. Isolate yourself between rocks or in caves and make sure to never lie flat on the ground. In the US 300 people on average are injured by strikes each year. 4. Blood Rain i. Collect rainwater and use a water purification system (like boiling your H2O or using bleach – 8 drops/gallon) to clean the water of pollutants. This is a priority as a human body can survive no longer than three days without water. 5. Paralyzing Fog i. When traveling through heavy fog it is important to stay on a trail and use a compass. Some use pacing and time to help aid navigation to help estimate distances. Also consider ranger beads – move a bead each 100m traveled. 6. Monkey Mutations a. (See beasts) 7. Jabberjays i. Similar to how Jabberjays mimic the cries of a Tribute, songbirds can mimic vocalizations of animals and also make it easier to find a predator lurking nearby through a shrill, alarm cry. The Jabberjays also play mind tricks; reminder that it’s important to remain calm in crisis – use slow breathing and keep your mind on the task-at-hand. 8. Beast i. For large animals like mountain lions and bears, wear a bell or carry another noisemaker to scare them off. Pretend to fight back against a mountain lion, play dead near a bear, and never, ever look into a wolf’s eyes.
Elements to include in the infographic
Please design an infographic showing a representation of the threats faced in Hunger Games Catching Fire, then correlate those experiences to real-life events with corresponding survival tips. The overall concept is that Survival Life can help teach you knowledge, tactics and skills regarding survival and overcoming potential real-world risks. Some other infographics we like: http://mashable.com/2013/03/24/doomsday-survival/ http://mashable.com/2010/03/24/online-dating-infographic/ http://mashable.com/2011/10/08/digital-storage-infographic/ Here is another infographic about the 75th Hunger Games to reference, the “clock” places the threats: http://www.myhungergames.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Catching-Fire-Arena.jpg We really like the idea of designing the “clock” (in the movie, the arena is set-up like a clock, with different challenges occurring each hour) then adding call outs that include real life scenario + tip. Examples of other clock arena maps: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_maai5rjpDo1rdd9e7o4_1280.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-c1XPJRmHbr4/TeEXm1lVkyI/AAAAAAAAAAc/CyoNvqkznM0/s1600/arena.png Below the “clock” you design, the content can live. But please ensure that the content is matched to the sector to which it refers. This can be done by using icons for each sector, like here: http://www.myhungergames.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Catching-Fire-Arena.jpg Please then use the icons again in the content area as ‘bullet points’ so readers can easily find the relevant/connect the information. Also, you can potentially color code the “clock” to match content: Colors for the design: • Saltwater Wave- Teal • Deadly Insects- Green • Lightning- Yellow Orange • Blood Rain- Red • Paralyzing Fog- Greyish Purple • Jabberjays- Golden Brown • Beasts- Reddish Brown
Please let us know if you require any additional information to get started. Hunger Games Catching Fire premieres Friday, November 22, while we don’t intend to have this design completed by then, we would like to make this a speedy process and syndicate this infographic as soon as possible in an effort to build off this premiere’s hype. Thanks and good luck.
