This is the LGBTQ animated film you’ve been waiting for and the Internet’s been raging about it since its release.
It’s one important story which conveys today’s society of intolerance and hate.
In a Heartbeat was made by Ringling College of Art and Design students Beth David and Esteban Bravo as their computer animation thesis, but it has become much more than that. It has become a message.
The story revolves around a young boy struggling to come to terms with his feelings for a goodlooking guy. It shows what countless of the LGBTQ youth go through, with a little heart leaping around, and people are begging for a sequel.
It has over 5 million views and it all started with a Kickstarter campaign which aimed to raise over £2,230 ($3,000), and ended up raising over £10,000 ($14,000). It first caught the pvblic’s attention when a short tweet went viral with over 100,000 likes.
