Four-Leaf Clovers: Meaning of each leaf

There are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover.
Researchers from the University of Georgia reported that a four-leaf clover gene turns ordinary three-leaf clovers into the coveted four-leaf types. Masked by the three-leaf gene and strongly influenced by environmental condition, this means that multiple four-leaf clovers could be found in the same clover plant.

Some folk traditions assign a different attribute to each leaf of a clover. The first leaf represents hope, the second stands for faith, the third is for love and the fourth leaf brings luck to the finder. A fifth leaf represents money and a six-leaf clover represents fame.

 

If you are considering becoming an Animator, it’s a great practice to make up random 5-10 sec animations. When I was in school, the teachers asked the students to create short stories- constantly. Some students found it difficult to keep their stories short and simple, receiving failing grades in some cases because they got too lost in their stories.

Tips on creating short stories:

  • Starting the story as close to the end as you can.
  • Including at last one character they can strongly identify with – either negatively or positively.
  • Reveal character motivation or traits essential to the story.
  • Ensuring that each character included needs something – even if it was to deliver the paper.
  • Metaphors are a great tool – but keep the related to everyday life – or you will lose your audience. In animation, you can be very creative in how you want to express your point and metaphor in the story. You can be very literal or “trippy” depending on who your audience is.
  • Know your basic audience and avoid alienating them. Appeal and what people can relate to is an important foundation if you want people to watch your videos.
  • Keep a notebook at all times! A quick note now can be a great story tomorrow.
  • Have fun with it! If you are not having fun, take a nap. Ideas have to marinate and evolve within you, so relax, have fun and let them flow.
