1,020

Animated short film In a Heartbeat released on Monday and has been crashing the internet ever since. The video has already garnered approx 14 million views on YouTube. Created by filmmakers Beth David and Esteban Bravo, and produced at the Ringling College of Art and Design, the short film follows the story of a lonely boy who runs the risk of being outed by his own heart, after it pops out of his chest, while he chases the boy of his dreams.

In an interview with NBC News, one of the creators Beth David states “The original pitch was a story between a boy and a girl. But it wasn’t until we made it about a same-gender crush that the idea really started to take form and resonate with Esteban and I. We realised that we had something that could potentially be really special to us.

A report in People.com claims that the director duo started a campaign in December to raise money for the short film and created the movie after raising $14,000 successfully.
