Short of the Week: "In a Heartbeat"
Jun 18, 2020

In a Heartbeat tells the story of a boy with a crush on his classmate. His heart jumps out of his chest—literally—in this wordless, yet compassionate story of young love. The short film began as Beth David and Esteban Bravo's thesis film at Ringling College of Art and Design, and was shortlisted for the Best Animated Short Film Oscar in 2018.
