Some of these projects were on Carol Duvall's show, but now you get to see what you never saw on that show--step by step closeups and simple ways to finish things. No diagrams needed!
What I loved about this DVD is that every little part of it is worth watching. Never before have the 'credits' been almost as interesting as the main portion of the program: Karen shows her private journal as the background to the credits lists! And the bloopers show the Karen we all know and love from Carol Duvall: elegant, modest, but warm and funny. The gallery was great, and even the ads for upcoming DVDs from PageSage gave glimpses of the other DVDs.
PageSage really has this instructional filming down pat--no unnecessary head shots and always close images of what is being done. Better than the front row in a class, since you can watch it at 2am in your pyjamas!
Get this DVD if you have even the smallest interest in folding paper but have been afraid to try it. You'll be as hooked as I now am!
I took up origami when I quit smoking, it kept my hands busy. Doing a lot more than the basics was very difficult because the type written instructions, even with stripes, shaded areas and arrows on the diagrams, were inadequate to make the things I wanted. It almost frustrated me back to smoking!
This is what I needed. My very own teacher available any and every time I need her. The filming of this DVD focuses on Karen's hands not her hair-do. The lighting is great and her voice does not bounce all over the place like she is standing in an empty house. You see each movement of the paper and Karen explains what she is doing very well as she goes.
There is a terrific gallery and if you are browsing through it and want more information on a piece click on it and you are whisked away to the segment showing the technique used to make it.
If this is not enough be sure to watch the bloopers, coming and already released titles and more. Grab some materials and get started folding.
