    SLOW DOWN, and it would be nice if you had the camera at a different angle so we could actually see what you're doing!

    Thanks for the time you took making and posting, but the camera angle, speed and you hand position made it less instructional that it could have been.Ā  Sorry, not up to the standards of the site.

    Ā Thank you! What I like about your video is that you show almost everything very clearly. I think that it's probably impossible to show everything 100% clearly............ unless you've got transparent hands! Still, where I wasn't sure, or couldn't keep up, I paused the video, moved the cursor back, watched again (and maybe again......) then paused again til I'd finished the fold. Then I hit play again. It worked! I've got a crane!! And it's only slightly bent!!!

    I don't think I'm ready for the paper ball yet, but it's beautiful, so once I've tried the easier models, I'm going for it. Thanks, Jennifer.

    Your right hand blocks much of the demonstration. I did like the overall presentation otherwise.

    Oh my gosh i must be origami illiterate I can not see anything your doing from the angle the camera is at. UGH!

    your hand is kinda in the way so you can't see what you are doing in the video...
