Joe Demonstrates 3 Kasahara Models

Joe brought 3 new models to show off at the Monterey Park Cherry Blossom Festival. He is often imaginative in presenting stories to go along with his favorite models, to entertain folks. I have footage for one more video from last weekend's festival in Monterey Park, featuring Joe...retired, but still hard at work in origami. I also hope to go back and edit together a video from our presence at the Chinese-American Museum in March. There was one guy in particular that Joe had fun entertaining; I missed some of their funniest exchanges, though. I gotta learn to keep that camera running...

The models can be found in The Art and Wonder of Origami.

Those are fabulous models! I love action origami, but many models have to be explained for non-origami people to appreciate them. However, these made perfect sense with the sound off!

I really need to go find someone with this book. :)

Thanks for your videography efforts!

I used to be into super complex origami (I still am!); but Yami and Joe have really expanded my appreciation for origami into the simple joys of action models.

I'm not sure what you meant "with the sound off". Are you saying you are without speakers? Or that I didn't layer it with music?

I need to pick up this book as well. I don't know how much is Joe's interpretation, and how much is directly from the book, as far as showing off the third model in the video.

Thanks for the compliment and visit!
