First: Please turn up your volume loud as Kevin Matley has made some beautiful music. The story: Operation Origami started in late 2011 as a labor of love of my wife and art. Behind the scenes, this film is actually a love story. My wife Heather and I were just dating at the time we started the film and are now married with hundreds of changes in our lives since that first frame was taken. Over the past few years we continued to work on it in our spare time. Heather is an expert at Origami and I wanted to learn more about time-lapse. This film is the result of my learning process. Little by little over the years we visited locations throughout the USA during our travels, and when it worked, we brought a time-lapse rig to capture a scene. Multiple cameras where used to shoot the film as technology had also progressed over the years. Since we started Operation Origami Heather and I have gotten married, bought our first home together, changed our jobs and had a son named Hudson. Finally this project was ready to complete and its time to move on to other adventures in filmmaking. We climbed mountains and travelled thousands of miles to shoot these scenes. There is a progression of seasons, spring, summer, fall and winter. In the end these paper cranes have made their home on our Christmas tree where they will be cherished forever. Thank you to everyone who views it. I hope you like the film and can see something in it even though it is personal to me.
