How long? With or without music?
2 versions. Without music + with music.
Track the more popular of the two over time.
5 minutes should suffice or perhaps 7.5 minutes.
If you wish, also make a version with commentary.
NOTICE how vibrant the colors are.
Wonder at the miracle that brought this together.
All of the parts that make up what you are viewing.
If a painted surface, see with your mind the layers that lie just beneath.
Hear the sound of the paint being rolled or brushed or sprayed on.
See the particles of dirt which cling tenaciously to its surface.
Look beyond the paint.
What lies beneath?
See the saw mill that created the boards.
Travelling further back still.
See the forest from whence the tree that made up this wood came from.
See the tree in fast motion, starting from seed to sapling to mature tree.
Listen to the sound of it growing.
Notice it being cut down, the stump ground up, the new saplings put in its place by the tree workers to replace the felled tree.
