Behind the scenes: Stop-motion artist creates important advocacy film in collaboration with Lena Dunham and JJ Abrams

The world is going through a lot of issues right now, and we need – now, more than ever – to have artists and celebrities fighting the good fight. Fortunately, we are in a surplus of these good people. An Emmy-winning stop-motion animator and director, Kirsten Lepore is collaborating with dozens of actors, artists, musicians, producers, directors, and visual artists to create a short film as an advocacy for Planned Parenthood. The film raises awareness about the pro-choice movement for women, which highlights their right to be free to know, own, and control their own body.

The film is a collaborative effort between Natalie Berkus, Lena Dunham, Kirsten Lepore, and Alex Ronan. They had a lot of help from certain famous people, including America Ferrera, Mindy Kaling, Jennifer Lawrence, Hari Nef, Andrew Rannells, Cecile Richards, Gina Rodriguez, Amy Schumer, Meryl Streep, Tessa Thompson, Constance Wu, and Sasheer Zamata. The film’s music is courtesy of Jack Antonoff and J.J. Abrams.
