An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes, he will receive a desire for a crane. Some histories say that eternal good luck is granted him, instead of only one desire, like a long useful life or the recovery of an illness or injury. This does that there are popular special gifts for friends and relatives.

What is stop Motion Animation

origamianiamtion01[1]Stop motion is an animation technique that consists of looking at the movement of static objects by means of a series of successive still images. Traditionally, it has been known with many different terms, such as photoanimation, volume animation, image stop, crank step, photo-to-photo animation or frame-by-frame animation, to name a few examples.

These terms are generally used or are called “stop motion animations” which do not fall into the category of cartoon or computer animation; That is, they were not drawn or painted by hand or computer, but were created by taking pictures of reality. Thus, stop motion is used to produce animated movements of any object, whether rigid or malleable, such as toys, building blocks, articulated dolls or characters created with clay.

This technique could also be defined as craft animation, because the movement is constructed by manipulating an object, with one’s hands, frame by frame. Different materials (clay, sand, paper wishes, chalks on floors and walls) are worked progressively, forward, with no possibility of backward movement.

origamianiamtion05[1]Stop-motion also known as frame-by-frame is a cinematographic technique whereby the camera is repeatedly stopped and started in order to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own.

Origami Stop motion is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated origami models appear to move on its own. The model is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence.

One thousand origami cranes. Sadako Sasaki

IMG_50051[1]Thousand Origami Cranes is a group of one thousand origami paper cranes held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods.

The one thousand origami cranes were popularized through the story of Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl who was 24 months old when she was exposed to radiation from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima during World War II. Sasaki soon developed leukemia and, at age 12 after spending a significant amount of time in a hospital, began making origami swan with the goal of making one thousand, inspired by the senbazuru legend.

In a fictionalized version of the story as told in the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, she folded only 644 before she became too weak to fold anymore, and died on 25 of October 1955; in her honor, her classmates felt empathy and agreed to complete the rest for her. In the version of the story told by her family and classmates, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum states that she did complete the 1,000 cranes and continued past that when her wish did not come true. There is a statue of Sadako holding a crane in Hiroshima Peace Park, and every year on Obon day, people leave cranes at the statue in memory of the departed spirits of their ancestors. Source:
