Sleep Relaxation, Sounds of Rain, Background of Pictures I have taken, and some found.
This simple image relaxation video by CherokeeRoseMo is 6 minutes 33 seconds long and focuses on a single theme of rain. It uses still images of water based scenes in combination with a nature sound track of rain and also some bird sounds. It has millions of views and thousands of likes and plenty of comments.
The theme of the video is nicely focused on rain and is good for concentration and relaxation.
There are a number of scenes used in this simple relaxation video which are either water scenes or include rain within the scene.
The audio used in this relaxation video is just the relaxing nature sounds of rain.
Many of the images displayed are of rain scenes. The scenes include waterfalls, lakes, rivers, water, streets, buildings, people, hands, cars, pavements, windows, rain, rainbows, parks, trees and forests.
The image sizes used for this image relaxation video are all uniform but the image size does not fill the screen completely and distracting black bars are visible. Also, the images are not all displayed for the same amount of amount of time, some are displayed long enough whilst other are shown too briefly. These two factors are distracting to concentration during relaxation.
The transition types between images are simple cross fades which help maintain a relaxed state. However, the transition times between images are a little too fast which means they can tend to break concentration and relaxation.
The video also uses panning and zooming to give the feeling of motion which I think aids relaxation.
As a relaxation video is ok. It has a theme that is quite well focused. I’m not sure if all of scenes actually had rain falling during the taking of the photos. Also, although there was good use of image panning and zooming, the image size does not fill the screen completely; the images were not displayed long enough; and the image transitions were too quick.
This video would be great as an ambient background video and would be better if the negative aspects identified for relaxation were to be improved.
What do you think about the video? Relaxing? Tell me in the comments!
