most important thing is it needs to be readible to the audience and i really can't decipher what its saying, that font is just too out there.

PLay around till you get a more readable font.

I can read it a little better, I recommend putting a stronger emphasis on the text. Make it stand out a little more. Are you working with Layers?

Maybe a glowing effect on the text, and a little bigger if you can, it is definetely an improvement over the 1st time though.

Looks alot better. I can has read! :)

I need to suggest one more thing, maybe putting in the flames so the glowing looks like it is due to the flames. Just a thought.

On the text, remove any sort of blur/glow/motion anything on it. Keep the text plain jain. If anything, add a somewhat strong shading on it so it is distinct from the flames under it.
