There is nothing really wrong with your code as far as I can tell and 
from own experience. From the outside (of the media) it is even rather 
fast due to the default intervals 1 and samples 1 (Yes! you /do/ use 
samples, even if you don't).

However, depending on the location of the camera within or without the 
media, render times can be very different; you even may need to increase 
the samples value to avoid splotches, and that will decrease render time 
even more although not that much.

Using media is time consuming. There is no alternative.
