Remember when we talked to stop-motion animator Bona Bones about her in-the-works short film, The 3rd of July?

“It takes one hour of animating to get one second of animation,” Bones said. “I’m sure there’ll be a lot of sleepless nights ahead.”

Well, it’s moving right along. Check out some of her progress in her IG posts above, and check out a preview she made of the film for her (now funded) Kickstarter below.
