Example
This work posted by Chaîne de titiboo90 on Youtube in 2010 (currently as Maxi Giant) presents "the story of Jules Brunet, who inspired the character of Nathan Algren played by Tom Cruise in the 2003 movie "the Last Samurai".

1. Presents an approachable production conveying in limited time about a person's story and legacy. 
2. Sound and music is soothing score by Hans Zimmer for The Last Samurai.  Depending on production distribution intent, as in T&D work copyright issues would be addressed and tracks selected accordingly.

This is a model that makes use of Ken Burn style photographic filters (pan, zoom, etc.), text (descriptive titles), a sound track (music) sufficient to inform and educationally entertain. It is a well-researched mini-production. 

You can further research Chaîne de titiboo90 / Maxi Giant who has a channel on YouTube and contact link.  

Note:  I read that European Hans Zimmer has a deep grasp of an Oriental approach to music.  I enjoy cross-cultural collaboration influences and would listen to this music on repeat as background to numerous projects.
