1. Plan

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you (or your model) could get into the tub immediately? It can save you so much time! But the grime, mold, and speck of dust don’t sell.


Besides, it does not matter if you have the latest camera equipment or editing software. If your video lacks direction, it won’t be engaging. Ask yourself the following questions:


But how do you exactly plan a relaxing hot tub video? First, ask these questions:


  • What is the purpose of this video? Is it to showcase a hot tub amenity or to create a calming atmosphere?
  • Who is the target audience? Consider age and gender when selecting music, lighting, and messaging.
  • What type of mood are you trying to evoke? Uplifting, peaceful, inspiring, or something else?
  • Where will the video be shown? Online, TV, etc.?


Planning also involves the following:


  • Make sure to clean the hot tub and eliminate any debris that may distract viewers.
  • Choose the right soundtrack and background music to set the mood.
  • Think about lighting, angles, and camera positions for capturing different shots.
  • Decide on props or elements you might want to add for visual interest.

2. Film

Now that your hot tub is ready and you have a plan, it’s time to start shooting! Here are some tips on how to create the perfect video:

  • Choose the right lighting. Natural light can be highly effective in creating a calming atmosphere because it’s softer and gentler than artificial light. If it is unavailable (for example, the tub is indoors), consider using LED or other soft lights to create the desired effect.
  • Make sure the camera is steady using a tripod, stabilization system, or handheld devices like gimbals. These tools minimize or avoid camera shakes and ensure smooth footage.
  • Check your sound levels to ensure the dialogue or background music won’t overpower the video.
  • Be creative with your camera movements. Add subtle pans, zooms, and tracking shots to give the video more movement and energy.

3. Polish the Video before Uploading

Even critically acclaimed directors spend hours (or years) doing post-production. You are not an exception.


Editing is the only way to refine your vision and turn it into the perfect relaxing hot tub video. The good news is it does not have to be a painstaking process. Here are some tips:


  • Start by organizing all the footage and selecting the best shots for your project.
  • Add transitions, audio, music, special effects, titles, and other elements to enhance the story.
  • Do color correction to ensure that the video is consistent throughout.
  • Don’t forget to export your project in the right format and resolution.
  • Add captions or subtitles if the video is silent to maximize its reach.


With practice and experience, you can become an expert in creating relaxing hot tub videos. Just keep experimenting, ask for feedback from your audience, and refine your technique until you get the desired results.
