Love. A feeling that we all have felt at some or the other point of time in our lives but cannot explain it. Our heart can’t stop thinking about the person and we get pulled towards them by an invisible force. Then, some of us, go through a ‘heartbreak’. How would it look if all this happened literally and not figuratively? This what this short film is all about.
In A Heartbeat is an animated short film produced by Ringling College of Art and Design and written and directed by Esteban Bravo and Beth David. The film was funded through Kickstarter where $14,191 were raised through 416 people who believed in it. Their initial goal was $3,000.
The film that went viral over the internet in late 2017 is beautifully made. It will make you go ‘awww’ and might also make you cry and relate to every emotion of the four-minute moving picture.
The film has 33 million views as of January 2018 and it received more than 20 awards. The description of the film reads, ‘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.’
