Animated book

Hey guys, im having a little problem here. I need to animate a book opening and leting several pages flip while leaving more or less the same volume of pages on both sides. I Checked for tutorials and i founded one for 3dmax that does exactly what i want, but, as i said, its for 3d max. Is there a way to do this in maya (go to the las 3 minutes of the video)
As you see, this guy animates some lines and then he creates a solid object with them.
I think i remember something similar in Maya using NURBS but i have never worked with NURBS before. Any ideas?

Thanks, but a couple of minutes after posting this thread i had my supervisor next to me, waiting to see me solve the problem so i ended up using morph on a mesh to obtain the same result (ish) as in the video. Next time i will use ncloth!
