As the world gets prepared for more David Lynch-helmed Twin Peaks, it’s the perfect time to revisit the original. That opening credit sequence, with its quaint look at a superficially simple Pacific Northwest town, has become iconic through the years. With Angelo Badalementi’s instrumental version of Julee Cruise’s “Falling” playing in the background, it sets the mood for an askew look at reality that only someone like David Lynch (with Mark Frost) could deliver. Now someone has taken those credits and made a shot-for-shot remake using only paper and animation.

And The World Was Paper creates papercraft versions of well known scenes and trailers from various films. The YouTube user has turned his eye to those foreboding opening credits for television and created a childlike interpretation of Lynch’s nightmare-infused town. It’s an impressive feat to garner so much atmosphere using only pieces of paper, some stop-motion animation, and, of course, that haunting theme song.
