WHAT: The animated short In a Heartbeat.
WHO: Directors Beth David and Esteban Bravo.
WHY WE CARE: In a Heartbeat follows a lovesick boy whose admiration from afar of one of his classmates suddenly becomes up-close and uncomfortable, thanks to the boy’s adorably meddlesome heart–a heart with the singular focus of bringing the two together. There’s not one line of dialogue in the four-minute short and it doesn’t need it. It’s a universal story at its core, showing the very real and varied stages of crushing on someone who may or may not feel the same way about you.
