Beginning with creamy clouds undulating to an electronic lullaby, this production moves on to the ocean in slow motion and a time-lapse sequence of unfolding flowers. Then—like disguising the second and third straight meal of pork chops with Shake 'n Bake—the same footage is replayed twice, reprocessed with tricky video techniques. The New Age music compositions by Eric Bikales grow ponderous. (Ron Roy Productions, 800-451-4571, 47 min., $39.95)
