These stop-motion videos show incredible origami techniques

Ross Symons is a professional origami artist working for the likes of Adidas – and has filmed stop-motion videos to showcase his skills.

Ross is based in Cape Town and has created some wonderful pieces as client commissions including window displays for Adidas and The Bacon Bar, and stop-motion videos for South African clothing brand Old Khaki (above) and Snog (below).

The Old Khaki and Snog spots follow on from a series of personal stop-motion videos that reveal Ross' paper-folding skills as the characters are formed from single sheets of paper. They're a little fast to learn techniques from, but watch closely and you'll pick up a few tips.

This video has an origami rabbit 'printed' from an iPhone.
