You might recall that we wrote about Bona way back in February when she was fundraising for this project. The final product is expected to clock in at 8 minutes — and at one hour of animating per one second of animation, it’s a long process!

Bona, a friend of mine, has also appeared here on these digital pages a few times. Follow her progress on Instagram @bonadona.
