Books on Film: In the Studio with a Pop-Up Master

Matthew Reinhart is the guy who pretty much makes every pop-up book not made by Robert Sabuda. The guy is a paper engineering wizard.

Science Friday recently interviewed Reinhart in his studio with fascinating results. In this video you will learn:

  • The basic pop-up folds and how they are used.
  • How Reinhart approaches each pop-up scene.
  • The toy that Reinhart collects (it makes perfect sense).

Highly recommended viewing.
