Explain: Improvements Final Video

Above is my final video explaining the five stages of sleep. In the video I integrated type and image by layering the JPEGs of my typography scans on top of my videos, I then set the images to a low opacity. This allowed the text to be seamlessly integrated with the imagery but it also gave the typography an ethereal feel similar to that of dreams. In parts of the film I also used the same technique but to layer two videos which would play at the same time, giving an unnatural and eerie feel. Towards the end of the video during the REM stage I set the type to appear and disappear very quickly at points, this was to represent rapid eye movements. I also made sharp cuts between video clips to represent rapid eye movements.

For the background music I used delta waves sleep music by Meditation Relax. This music is specially designed to help people sleep at night, specifically to enter a deep sleep therefore it seemed appropriate in context to my video.
