By the time I get this post up, it will be well after midnight, local, but it’s still Paper Airplane Day somewhere, right?
When I was a kid, once in a while my dad would fold a special paper airplane. It took me a while (probably several years worth of watching the occasional plane take shape since it didn’t happen very often) to learn to fold it myself. When my own kids were small, I tried to do it a little more often, but none of them were particularly into paper airplanes, so it gradually went away.
Today, I decided to see if I could remember how it worked. To entertain myself, I rested a video camera on a counter facing down to the table I worked on.
Here’s the final result:
And here are two versions of the video. First, at almost seven minutes long and with me talking far too much:
Second, shortened and sped up to just see the folding itself.
Not the best video work. Someday, and soon, I’ll be setting up a small studio to do audio and video. In the meantime, anything I do will be a little rough.
Be well, everyone.by
