The trailer for animated short film “In a Heartbeat” follows a boy’s heart, quite literally, as it chases his same-sex crush.
Beth David and Esteban Bravo, computer animation students at Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida, came up with the idea for their senior thesis. David and Bravo created a Kickstarter to fund $3,000 for the film’s music and sound engineering. Instead, they raised $14,000 for the campaign that went viral in November.
Now the film’s first trailer is here.
“A closeted boy runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams,” reads the film’s description.
The film will be released online for free this summer.
