[ongoing project] Food and energy values

Hello

PART AUDIO AND TEXT

This is about my 12th project, to get ideas here with you.
This is the first time I ask for an opinion before showing the final result.

I used to post a video on youtube and ask for feedback afterwards, well I need to change the method a little bit (to do a better job), I’ve already created a 10th video.
Animation, tutorial, 3D, I’ve done everything (I don’t have a specific style).

So why I’m here, to start the project, I’ve already written the story it took me exactly 7h05

It’s going to be about
Food and energy values,
this will take a form of learning for those who do not know the composition of food.

Good as I have already written the text of:
the description of the video
is the content of the video in text form, (I didn’t start drawing).

These are the tools I have already used (for text and audio):
-subtitles activation of the subtitles by the visitor, (English) then translate to another language, (it’s an SRT file so the timing is at the second)
-music without words (free of rights), sound effects,
-the text obviously in the animation with a chosen font
-I also use English in many of my videos, I try to use it whenever possible.
(I am French-speaking, living in France)

And that’s precisely where I have a problem, my text is long and technical, for example I’ll give you an extract:
**
The rest that is contained in food in general are :
water, sodium, calcium, potassium, iron, vitamins, etc.
**

My first visitors are French speakers, France, but for each video now I add subtitles for the English and other visitors, I translate my titles and description in many languages.

So here’s how I plan to do it:

Method1:
-Use a soundtrack with music without words from beginning to end, with sound effects.
-Afterwards, as food will appear, with text and numbers.
-I had thought of making my French text appear at the very top of the video, with a nice font, for long annotations like
**
The rest that is contained in food in general are :
water, sodium, calcium, potassium, iron, vitamins, etc.
**
(karaoke style, without highlighting)

(then at the very bottom where the visitors can activate the subtitles, they will be able to activate English)
this is not a very common method.

Method2:
-Use a soundtrack with music without words from beginning to end, with sound effects.
-Afterwards, as food will appear, with text and numbers.
-subtitled, English or French, by visitor activation

(it won’t look very pretty, for the French, nor decorated, but it has the merit of being simpler and faster).
it is the simplest method but is amateurish.

Method3:
-Use a soundtrack with wordless music from beginning to end, with sound effects.
-Afterwards, as food will appear, with text and numbers.
-I’ve never asked anyone to give me a voice, and considering the length of the text, I don’t know if it’s possible.
-Make the voice myself (in French), by passing it through the mill of my voice synthesizer.

(This has the merit of being more readable for the visitors, they listen and see the animations following one another) the English will have the activation of the subtitles.
This is the most professional and correct method (I will at least avoid spelling and conjugation mistakes).

the method that I like the most is method 3, it has many advantages, but I may have to go over it more than 50 times to find the right reading rhythm.

What do you think of these approaches?

Use method 3, but if your primary audience is french make the video to tailor to your audience first. I dont know if you need to pass your voice through an synthesizer.

If its text heavy, you dont need to display all the text. try to use images and graphics to tell a story as well.

I think I’m just going to practice reading sentences like for a voice-over, practicing to read audio books, to get the right voice intonation.

My channel is a 2D and 3D animation channel, from cartoon animation to various animations, so inevitably there will be animated images.

The synthesizer is applied afterwards, so I’ll choose the voice I need, grandfather or child at +, or I can very well put nothing on.
