After years of exploring on this earth, I at last discovered one of the the most beautiful islands in the world – and now I share it with you! It’s a hidden little sandy palm-filled island oasis surrounded by a perfect lagoon located away from everything, in the middle of the South Pacific. (Hint: it’s in Fiji.)
This simple image relaxation video by David Huting is 3 minutes 6 seconds long and focuses on a single theme of ocean waves and beaches on a beautiful island. It is a promotional video for a longer video and uses still video and motion video (panning) of ocean waves and beach scenes in combination with nature sounds.
The theme of the video is nicely focused on ocean waves around an island and is good for concentration and relaxation.
There are a number of scenes used in this simple relaxation video which are all about ocean waves around an island. The video scenes are fabulous and I especially love those with a lot of cloud formations.
The audio used in this relaxation video is just the nature sounds of ocean waves which is relaxing.
The scenes of this simple image relaxation video show images of sand, waves, rocks, oceans, islands, skies and clouds; sunshine and shadows; birds, trees, bushes and plants; footprints, people and boats. I found the images of people on the beaches distracting from relaxation and would prefer not to see people on nature scenes. I would also prefer not to see man-made structures like boats. The image sizes used for this image relaxation video are all uniform and fill the screen completely which serves to aid the focusing of attention and relaxation.
The transition types between images are simple cross fades which help maintain a relaxed state. The transition times between images are nice and slow which also helps maintain a relaxed state.
The video uses a panning during one scene which gives the viewer the feeling they are looking around. The panning is nice and slow which helps maintain a relaxaed state.
This is a very good simple image relaxation video: the theme is well focused on ocean waves around a beautiful island; the nature sounds of ocean waves are relaxing; the scenes are fabulous; there is a good variety of scenes and they are shown for a good length of time; the immages completely fill the screen; and the transitions are nice and slow simple cross fades. However, the appearance of people in the scenes spoils it for me as a relaxation video.
Although the video is not long enough to be used as an ambient background video I can imagine that the full length version would be great for this.
What do you think about the video? Relaxing? Tell me in the comments!
