Animated Queer Short: "In A Heartbeat"

This adorable animated short follows a closeted school boy named Sherwin who runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to follow the boy of his dreams, Jonathan.

The project was funded via Kickstarter. The project is the senior thesis of two students at Ringling College of Art and Design.

The duo originally sought $3,000 in funding but received $15,000!

Lots of "heart" in this story about love and acceptance of LGBTQ youth. I think it's pretty much a perfect gem of a moment. The pace, the expert use of music, the artful expressions...

Just, watch below - you'll be glad you did :)
