Yea, and there was a rejoicing all round the land last week when Showtime and David Lynch finally worked out a deal to bring back Twin Peaks after initial reports that Lynch had backed out.
So while we wait for 2016, check out Matthew Fuller’s re-creation of the Twin Peaks title sequence in animated paper cut outs. Fuller’s rough hewn creation is adorable, staying true to the languid pace and dreamy objects of the original. (I had kind of forgetten that very large log on display at the one minute mark.)
Fuller just started this YouTube channel And the World Was Paper two weeks ago, kicking it off with a recreation of the new Star Wars trailer. He is also promising a new paper video every fortnight, so be sure to subscribe.
Meanwhile, this paper version of Twin Peaks isn’t the first time the titles has been recreated. Check out Filthy Frackers 8-bit version here:
