Loud Humor is all about those funny elements that are presented in a very similar way and that audiences may find funny and readable. One obvious way to bring out this kind of humor in an explanatory animated video is by deliberately writing a funny script using one or more word play techniques such as dot, phonetic mixes, obscure words and meanings, double entenders, rhetorical devices, and creation supporting visual comedy elements, so that the voicemail (script) and the visual combine. Needless to say, sound effects play a very supportive and important role in bringing out high humor in an animated explanatory video.

Silent Humor

Silent Humor, in an animated explanatory video is the kind of ‘less obvious’ comedy. One way to bring out quiet humor is by creating only visual comedy elements. Imagine, for example, a video frame being split between a main animated character and a supporting animated character. While watching the video, even though most of your attention would be on the main character, the supporting character could still be animated to bring out humor through his body language or facial expressions. These subtle funny elements add that ‘special effect’ or ‘magical touch’ to your animated video. While the expressions or body language of the supporting characters would go with the flow of the script, their humor is still independent of themselves.

It often happens when the aspect of humor is not very clear to all viewers, it becomes more attractive because of this, the viewer automatically takes an interest in interpreting this subtle humor, and if this is done, it gets more attention and watching the video.

Humor acts as the glue that keeps your audience watching your explanatory animated video, to the end. Therefore, when using an animated explanatory video technique for marketing, make sure there are some elements of humor. How many? Well, that depends entirely on your type of business entity and it is up to you to decide.
