Video Components

Theme

The theme of the video is nicely focused on hills and mountains scenery and is good for concentration and relaxation.

Scenes

There is only one scene of hills and mountains used in this simple relaxation video. However, the scene or sections of the scene are viewed in different ways. My favourite is the more or less full scene at 1 minute 30 seconds with the sun shining through the clouds above the hills and mountains.

Audio

The audio used in this relaxation video is peaceful chillout music which I feel is ok for relaxation purposes. However, I felt it was a little too fast in places.

Images

The scenes of this simple image relaxation video show a variety of images including: hills and mountains plus sunshine from the sun shining through the clouds in the sky.

The image sizes used for this image relaxation video are all the same size, fill the screen completely; and every image is displayed for a good length of time; which together serves to aid the focusing of attention and relaxation. However, the images are spoiled a bit by the brand of the website (relaxdaily.net) being written over the image.

Transitions

The transition types between images are simple cross fades and the transition times between images are nice and slow, both factors which help maintain a relaxed state.

Special Techniques

The video also uses a slow zooming in or out technique, or panning left or right. These techniques give the feeling of motion which I think aids relaxation.

In addition, it views the same scene in different ways, such as using a specific section of the overall scene.

Conclusion

This is an ok simple image relaxation video, giving the impression of using a variety of scenes within the overall theme of hills and mountains, when in fact it is the same scene viewed in different ways; each image is displayed for a good length of time and they completely fill the screen; the transitions between images are nice and slow simple cross fades; the audio is ok for relaxation although a little fast in parts; and there is also some good use of a slow zooming or panning on the images. However, one negative aspect is that the website name (relaxdaily.net) is displayed over all the images.

With regards to use as an ambient background video I find this video interesting with a good variety of views of the same scene. Although only 6 minutes 20 seconds long, it could be put on a repeat play cycle. However I am not sure I would use it as an ambient background video.
