Introduction to Relax Scenes

My name is Carl Miller. In 2013 while thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and again in 2016 while crossing New Zealand on the Te Araroa Trail, I realized what an incredibly positive effect being in Nature has on the human spirit. These experiences instilled in me the desire to capture and share these beautiful natural places with people who might not be able to see them for themselves.

With the ever-increasing stresses of modern life and the self-isolation required by Covid- 19, having a way to re-connect with Nature is more important than ever. People need a way to easily access the stress-reducing and calming effects of Nature, even when they don’t have time or they’re self-isolating. They live somewhere inaccessible to Nature, or they are physically unable.

From this desire, Relax Scenes was born. Over the last three years, my wife and I have been shooting videos and developing Relax Scenes — our nature video streaming service that specializes in stunning static Nature scenes with natural ambient sounds. All our videos are 30-60 minutes in length and completely ad-free. Filmed in Ultra High Definition 4k video with High Definition sound and designed to transport the viewer to a stress-free and calming natural setting.

“My dream is to change how people use their TVs by providing a window to Nature that they can open and experience the feeling of being in Nature whenever they want.” – Carl Miller (Founder)

Using our service is easy. Subscribe at relaxscenes.com, login, then select a category of nature scenes to enjoy – waterfalls, rivers & streams, meadows, ocean, and many more!

Select a video, then sit back and relax. You can also create playlists of your favorite videos to play in sequence. We add new videos weekly, so there’s always something new to enjoy.

What We Need

Currently, we can only offer viewing Relax Scenes from an internet browser on a computer, which works well but has its limitations. We need to add Relax Scenes Apps so our Nature videos can be accessed from almost any SMART TV, on media players like Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, and Android TV, which is how they were designed to be viewed. Unfortunately, the cost of these Apps is well outside of our budget.

We’ve taken Relax Scenes as far as we can on our own, and now we need funding to take our Nature streaming service to the next level! We have started our Indiegogo campaign with a funding goal of $34,000 (USD.) If our goal is met, we will purchase and publish the Apps (by June 2021), allowing people to easily add Relax Scenes to their TVs & devices and experience the calming and therapeutic benefits of Nature from the comfort of their own homes!
