Introduction

This simple image relaxation video by relaxdaily is 6 minutes 16 seconds long and focuses on a single theme of a single scene with an image of a bench under trees beside a river in combination with instrumental music and some sounds made by voices. There is also an orange colour filter applied to the image which makes the scene appear to be during autumn.

Video Components

Theme

The theme of the video is narrowly focused on a single view of a bench under trees beside a river and is ok for concentration and relaxation.

Scenes

There is just one scene used throughout this simple relaxation video, that of a bench under trees beside a river.

Audio

The audio used in this relaxation video is an instrumental music track which is relaxing although I also consider the tempo to be a tiny bit fast. There are also some vocal sounds which had a lovely relaxing feel to them.

Images

The single scene of this simple image relaxation video show images of a bench under trees beside a river with sunshine coming down through the trees from the side. At the edge of the water are rocks which line the bank and the bench in on an area of grass. The scene itself is fairly nice but there is also writing overlaying it which says “Relaxdaily Presents: Music 4 Relaxation” in capitals. I do not find this text visual to be supportive for a relaxing environment but feel it ruins the scene. The image size used for this relaxation video fills the screen completely.

Transitions

As there is only one image used throughout this relaxation video, there are no transitions. However, there is a nice slow fade in from white at the start and fade out to white at the end.

Special Techniques

There is an orange colour filter applied to the simple image relaxation video which makes the scene appear to be during autumn

Conclusion

In my opinion, this straightforward, uncomplicated arrangement of one scene with instrumental music is not that good for relaxation. Having just one theme means the video is focused and the use of just one scene or image which fills the screen completely means it is highly focused. The music is lovely even if a tiny bit fast. As the length of the video is relatively short, the use of a single image is ok. The scene of a bench under trees beside a river is good and it functions as a focal point for contemplation and relaxation. Also, the orange colour filter is quite good as autumn scenes of trees are nice to look at. However, the video is spoiled by the text displayed on the scene.

Bear in mind that with just one scene/image you may be inclined to fall asleep during relaxation. The aim of a relaxation session should be to remain awake and aware. As the intention of a relaxation session is to “not” fall asleep, this may be detrimental to relaxation. If I wanted to make any improvements I would use more images of river images slowly cross fading into each other to maintain a relaxed state.

As an ambient background video it is not really long enough but it could be put on a recurring loop. With only one scene/image the video itself is not very interesting and would therefore not be very good as an ambient background video. There may also be a tendency to fall asleep watching the video due to lack of scene variety. However, having said that, some people may just wish to have a single image with relaxing music playing in the background to help them relax while they are concentrating on other tasks, such as reading, and looking up occasionally at the scene.
