In a Heartbeat” is 4-minute short film following Sherwin, a middle school boy struggling to come to terms with his crush on Jonathan, the most popular boy in school. After his heart pops out of his chest, Sherwin must chase down his runaway heart before it reveals his true feelings to Jonathan and the entire student body.

The creators are Beth David and Esteban Bravo, senior Computer Animation students at the Ringling College of Art and Design. The film was successfully funded on Kickstarter late last year and will hopefully be available for viewing online this summer. And what better film to truly bring in the warmer season. With a lack of LGBT+ animated movies, it’s great to see a film that takes a real, and often over-sexualized, topic and portrays it in a sweet, lighthearted way.
