In a Heartbeat
« on: August 01, 2017, 09:13:30 pm »
Looking for some cuteness?

Gay animation In A Heartbeat has been uploaded in full on YouTube after we all cooed over the first trailer earlier this year.  The project has been created by filmmakers Esteban Bravo and Beth David, who raised over $14,000 on Kickstarter to fund the film.

“A closeted boy runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams,” an official description reads.

You can watch the adorable short in full (4 minutes in length) below.

Animated film about a gay boy’s crush is so cute it hurts
By Dan Tracer

Prepare to have your heartstrings tugged.

Children’s entertainment has made some modest strides in breaking free of outdated gender roles, but there’s still a huge void in queer representation aimed at a family-friendly crowd.

A new animated film is setting out to change that, and the recently-released trailer is causing hearts to melt across the web.

In A Heartbeat  was created by Beth David and Esteban Bravo, two animation students at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida. It tells the story of a closeted boy who “runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams.”

As if that short synopsis wasn’t enough to send a shiver down your spine, here’s the trailer to seal the deal:


“We want to put out a message of love and self acceptance to all the kids and young people who struggle to identify as LGBT+ just like Sherwin does,” David said.

The film, partly funded via a 2016 viral Kickstarter campaign, is set to be released for free online this summer.

Judging by this reaction on Twitter, it’ll make quite the impression:

THESE YOUNG ANIMATORS MADE THE
LGBT ANIMATED SHORT THAT'S MELTING
HEARTS EVERYWHERE

RECENT GRADS BETH DAVID AND ESTEBAN BRAVO CALL THE RESPONSE TO THEIR
HEARTWARMING FILM 'MIND-BLOWING'


by CRYSTAL BELL
08/01/2017




Over the past 24 hours, the sweet story of In a Heartbeat  has set hearts around the world aflutter. The animated short, directed by Beth David and Esteban Bravo at the Ringling College of Art and Design, hit the internet on Monday (July 31), and it's already inspired countless pieces of fan art and impassioned appeals for a follow-up feature.

David and Bravo call the overwhelming response to their short film "mind-blowing." Speaking to MTV News, David said she couldn't believe how many people had seen it already. (The film has already racked up over 2.6 million views and counting.) "There's fan art, and people are cosplaying it," David said. "They're sending us GIFs and edits. That's crazy! We're blown away, and it's so exciting."

"As artists, that's when you know you've made something cool — when other artists draw your art," Bravo added.

In a Heartbeat  follows a closeted boy named Sherwin whose heart literally pops out of his chest to chase after the boy of his dreams, Jonathan. At the risk of being outed by his own heart, Sherwin must track down his heart before it reveals to his crush how he really feels. There's no dialogue in the four-minute short, but that doesn't matter. The raw emotion of Sherwin's struggle bursts off the screen.


The LGBT+ love story was created by David and Bravo for their senior thesis project at Ringling. It started, as all films do, with an idea: a boy's heart pops out his chest and chases down a schoolyard crush. They started pre-production their junior year in January 2016, and at the time, the boy's crush was originally conceived as a girl, but a decision was made very early in development to make the object of his heart's desire a male classmate. David and Bravo both felt a deeply personal connection to the idea.

"It was very important for both of us," David said. "It resonated with us very personally. We always say to each other that it's the kind of thing we wish we had when we were kids, something positive we wish we could have seen on screen."

"The moment that it turned into two boys, I completely changed my emotional response to the film," Bravo added. "When we were trying to write the story of the film, I would hear myself get emotional."

From there, the characters of Sherwin and Jonathan were born. Throughout the year-and-a-half-long production on In a Heartbeat,  David and Bravo split the work evenly, each taking the lead on animating individual sequences. When it came time to create their character rigs, David took control of redheaded Sherwin, while Bravo focused on Jonathan. "We worked alongside each other all the way, from beginning to end," Bravo said. "It was as collaborative as it could be."






As per Ringling tradition, David and Bravo created parody movie posters for the film. Beth David and Esteban Bravo




They launched an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign late last year, raising over $14,000, despite an initial goal of only $3,000. David and Bravo used the money to hire composer Arturo Cardelús, who created a lovely original score for the film, and sound designer Nick Ainsworth. Since the short has no dialogue, Cardelús's score is especially powerful. It's part of what makes Sherwin's story so universally understood — and felt.

"It's more impactful because it's about how the characters are acting, rather than what they're saying," David said. "In the films that we watch, we've always enjoyed that quality, and we were striving to do something like that from the beginning."

With its simple yet effective message of inclusion, it's easy to see why Sherwin and Jonathan's tender story has captured the hearts and imaginations of people around the globe. First love can be scary, but when you're a young person also grappling with sexual identity, it's even more confusing. The Human Rights Campaign even encouraged followers to watch the short, tweeting a link to the film with the caption, "We can all relate to this." The film is also a semi-finalist for the 2017 Student Academy Awards.




[By the way--
do you know
who THIS  is??
HA!!!!!)


"There's fan art, and people are cosplaying it," Beth David said. "They're sending us GIFs and edits. That's crazy! We're blown away, and it's so exciting."





"A lot of people have been yearning to see this kind of relationship portrayed not only in media but in animation," Bravo said. "People are very excited, and a lot of LGBT people who needed this kind of representation finally see themselves represented, and that inspires them."

Having just graduated this past spring, David and Bravo are both pursuing careers in animation. Bravo is currently an intern at Blue Sky Studios, while David is an animator for JibJab's StoryBots series. But they both plan to continue their partnership and create more content together. As for whether they have plan to continue Sherwin and Jonathan's story, Bravo said that while there's nothing official to announce yet, he and David have talked about the possibility of revisiting these characters and expanding their stories.

"The response [to In a Heartbeat ] is just another reason why we need to keep on working together to tell these kinds of stories."

National
Crowd-funded animated short
about gay love goes viral

LOS ANGELES — An animated short film about an adolescent gay couple has gone viral, roughly 8 million views on YouTube in just two days.

“In a Heartbeat” follows an elementary school boy addressing his sexuality after falling in love with a male classmate. Filmmakers Beth David and Esteban Bravo released the film Monday online.

The short quickly began trending, gaining a particular following amongst LGBT advocates including singer Adam Lambert and actor Ashton Kutcher. The Human Rights Campaign posted the video on Twitter Tuesday afternoon and praised the film for its relatability.

Hayley Miller, the organization’s senior digital media manager, said the film is a testament to saying, “Love is love.”

“We’ve all had a crush or a broken heart,” Miller wrote in an email. “Using no words, it validates this young boy’s experience and the way all LGBTQ youth should be embraced.”

The filmmakers launched a Kickstarter campaign in November 2016 to fund the project, reaching the initial goal of $3,000 in three hours. A total of $14,000 was raised.

“In a Heartbeat” is a semi-finalist for best animated domestic film at the 2017 Student Academy Awards. The filmmakers produced the short at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida as their senior thesis. They did not respond to online messages seeking an interview.

Paul Dergarabedian, comScore senior media analyst, said it’s not surprising the film found success through the crowd-funding website. Calling the short a picture-perfect scenario, he said the most successful Kickstarter campaigns go viral.

“It shows the power of utilizing social media as a way to provide resources to realize people’s creative vision,” he said.

Research shows young LGBT characters and storylines are way underrepresented in both short and feature length films.

In 2016, only three out of 4,544 speaking characters in the top 100 grossing films were LGBT teenagers or younger, according to a report released Monday.

There was just one out of 4,370 in 2015, according to data compiled by the Media, Diversity, & Social Change Initiative at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.

Project administrator Marc Choueiti said younger LGBT characters are also rarely seen in short films.

In a separate study, the researchers evaluated films screening at Lunafest, a national short film festival. They found that between 2002 and 2015, 115 short films had four characters who identified themselves as LGBT teenagers.

Lead researcher Stacy L. Smith said shorts often showcase different worldviews than in top grossing full-length features.

Smith said “In A Heartbeat” is an outlier along with “The Imitation Game,” ‘’Moonlight” and the Freeform show “The Fosters” in showcasing experiences of LGBT youth.

“People aren’t seeing rich, complex and compelling LGBT youth,” she said. “The short should be applauded for representing the world we live in.”

MOVIES
Watch "In a Heartbeat," the Short Film About
a Boy’s Heart Chasing the Guy of His Dreams

It'll give you all the feels.
By Gabe Bergado | 
JUL 31, 2017 6:17PM EDT






Earlier this year, our hearts were aflutter after watching the trailer for the short film In a Heartbeat. And now, the production in its entirety is finally here.

In a Heartbeat  follows the story of a young boy who's still in the closet, his secret put at risk when his heart pops out of his chest in pursuit for his dream boy. In just a smidgen over four minutes, the short film will take you on a roller coaster of emotions. But by the end, you won't be able to help the huge grin on your face and the warmth in your chest — and perhaps even some tears with how beautiful it is..

Created by Beth David and Esteban Bravo — who started the adorable film as their senior thesis project at Ringling College of Art and Design — the duo has spent countless hours on the project. And it was well worth it seeing as how the internet almost instantly fell in love with, creating tons of fan art and buzz before it even was released. It's an impeccable production, from the plot to the sound design to the animation, something that you could really see as the short that typically comes before full-length 3D-animated features in the movie theaters. Beth and Esteban have also been showing it at various festivals.

"This film means a lot to us, and it touches on emotions that we hope will resonate with people from all different backgrounds," Beth and Esteban tell Teen Vogue. "We are so grateful for all the support and enthusiasm we've received over the past few months; we started this project more than a year and a half ago and we've been waiting for this moment as much as everyone else has."

In a Heartbeat
the story behind the animated
gay love short that's gone viral

The makers of the four-minute film, with 12m views in under a week, discuss
the shock of their success and the importance of depicting same-sex romance

A still from In a Heartbeat,  the animated short film by Esteban Bravo and Beth David
Photograph: Youtube




It’s not every day that a wordless, four-minute animated short about two young boys falling in love goes viral. But on Monday, when recent college graduates Esteban Bravo and Beth David posted their senior thesis film on YouTube, that’s exactly what happened.

The short, called In a Heartbeat, i s a simple yet enduring story, a heartwarming fable of young love and all the irrepressible butterflies that come with it. It also just happens to be about two boys, which despite the ascent of LGBT characters in film and television is still rarefied in animated or children’s cinema.

Although Pixar hasn’t yet shown a gay character in a feature film, there’s evidence of progress – albeit very slow progress – in this year’s Beauty and the Beast  reboot. The film has what director Bill Condon hyped up as a “nice, exclusively gay moment”: Josh Gad’s character, LeFou, shares a few-second dance with another man – which, for the optimist anticipating great strides from Disney, was a pretty insufficient form of progress. In a Heartbeat,  though, unmoored from the prudence of Hollywood studios, is far more explicit.

In just about as long as it takes to microwave a cup of ramen noodles, Bravo and David’s film tells the sweet, intimate story of a boy named Sherwin, who has a crush on his classmate, Jonathan. His heart is, literally, jumping out of his chest when the object of his affection walks by, spinning an apple on his fingertips like a basketball, so Sherwin dashes behind a tree to try to contain it. Of course, Sherwin’s reluctance is about so much more than being nervous to profess young love; he’s also, as the film’s description says it, “at risk of being outed by his own heart”.

When Bravo and David, both computer animation majors at Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida, started work on the film in January 2016, it wasn’t a gay romance. “A friend of ours was pitching ideas to us for potential projects,” David, 21, told me over the phone. “It was her idea to show a person with their heart popping out of their chest, chasing down a crush. But initially it was about a boy and a girl. It wasn’t until Esteban and I decided to switch it to a same-sex crush that the film started to feel like a personal story that we were invested in. It was the kind of story we wish we had seen as kids.”

Bravo, who’s 24 and now an animation intern at Blue Sky Studios (the company behind the Ice Age  franchise), added: “It still makes sense when it’s a boy and a girl because that doesn’t mean someone wouldn’t be afraid to disclose their feelings. But when it’s put in the context of LGBT characters, there were so many more layers to explore, and we could infuse the story with our own backgrounds.”

The two announced a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for the project last November, more than quadrupling their initial goal of $3,000 by raising over $14,000.

Now, just 72 hours after In a Heartbeat  was released, it’s already amassed over 12m views on YouTube. The two young film-makers, who grew up on the animated movies of Brad Bird, along with other turn-of-the-century classics like Finding Nemo, A Bug’s Life  and Cat’s Don’t Dance,  have been overwhelmed by the rapturous reception.

“It’s been insane!” Bravo said. “For two people making our first film, Beth and I are really excited that people have so deeply responded to it emotionally.” The pair have been equally taken aback by the messages, both curious and congratulatory, they’ve had to field.

“We’ve been answering emails and messages and phone calls both from people we’ve never met and also our friends and family,” said David, somewhat dumbfounded that an independently made short, conceived of at the small Sarasota college where they cut their film-making teeth, has found such an audience. “And big-name people are contacting us! That’s so crazy.”

As for why the internet has lifted In a Heartbeat  to viral status, the two surmise it has something to do with the dearth of same-sex love stories in animated films.

“From a business standpoint, it makes sense why studios are afraid to portray LGBT characters, just because there’s still part of the population that’s not accepting,” Bravo said. “But as leaders of children’s content, it’s really important for them to represent these people because not showing LGBT characters leads to a lot of internalized confusion as kids grow up.”

“We do want our films to be universal, but we know that because it’s animation it’s assumed that it’s for children. And we want that to be OK,” David said.

While developing the film in their senior year, Bravo and David had the luxury of total creative autonomy, from the characters’ furrowed brows to the lovely score, by Spanish composer Arturo Cardelús, that accompanies the film. They had a vague idea, when anticipation for the short grew after they released a teaser, that it might attract a considerable following on the web; but they weren’t expecting this much viewership, and they certainly couldn’t have imagined that, just three days after it was uploaded to YouTube, there’d be In a Heartbeat  fan-fiction and memorabilia with their characters’ faces on it.

Super excited to say that, in less than 24 hrs, my thesis partner @bbethdavidd
and I gonna be launching the Kickstarter for our thesis animated film, In a Heartbeat !!
This project has been in development for a year now and I'm super stoked to finally
share a bit of it. Keep an eye out!!
NOVEMBER 14, 2016




“There was a part of us that was aware this could potentially be a baby-step towards normalizing LGBT romance and, hopefully, toward larger productions and studios doing something like this,” David, who currently works at LA-based digital entertainment studio JibJab, said. “I do think this kind of entertainment is wanted on a pretty broad scale.”

The two have entertained the idea of expanding In a Heartbeat  into a series of shorts or a longer feature. But right now, they’re simply enjoying what a meteoric success the passion project has become.

“We’ve had people reach out and ask in vague ways if they could talk to us about our futures,” David said. “But as of now, we don’t know what any of it means.”

MOVIES
YouTube Falls Hard for
In a Heartbeat
a Boy-Meets-Boy Story

by CHRISTINA CARON
Friday 4 August 2017

It’s hard to forget your first childhood crush — and the anxiety that accompanied it. (Do you like me? Circle yes or no.) That heart-pounding, sweaty-palmed infatuation is nothing new in children’s animation, but two students decided to tell the tale in a different way, creating an animated short film that is drawing the interest of big production studios.

Here, the enamored characters are both middle-school boys. And their dovelike innocence is charming a huge audience on YouTube. Posted on Monday, the four-minute film has already been viewed more than 14 million times.

In a Heartbeat  Animated Short Film by Beth David and Esteban Bravo
Published on Jul 31, 2017
A closeted boy runs the risk of being outed by his own heart
after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams.

Celebrities have taken note. Ashton Kutcher posted an article about it on Facebook. “This speaks for itself, even without dialogue,” he wrote.

J. A. Bayona, the director of “A Monster Calls” and the coming movie “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” tweeted, “Is this the best animation (short) film of the year?”

Not bad for a first project.

The filmmakers, Beth David, 21, and Esteban Bravo, 24, made the short for their senior thesis while at Ringling College of Art and Design, where they recently graduated, in Sarasota, Fla.

It was a labor of love that took about one and a half years, a Kickstarter campaign and a journey to Los Angeles, where they did a live recording of the score. They knew the film would generate interest when their donations surpassed their $3,000 goal, eventually reaching $14,000. (The money was used, in part, to hire the composer Arturo Cardelús, whose soundtrack for the film is now on Spotify.)

Even so, they couldn’t have predicted this.

“It’s mind-blowing to me,” Ms. David said in an interview, adding that people want to see gay-themed stories “in a positive light.”

Mr. Bravo, who is from Mexico City, was similarly stunned by the response. “It’s really surreal,” he said, adding later, “I hope I give a good name to people from my country.”

The duo has signed with Verve Talent and Literary Agency, which has been in touch with Blue Sky Studios, Illumination Entertainment and Disney; they’ve been accepted to multiple festivals, including the HollyShorts; and they are semifinalists for a student Academy Award.

Their animation tells the story of Sherwin, a redhead who has a crush on Jonathan, described on the film’s Tumblr page  https://inaheartbeat-film.tumblr.com/  as “the most popular boy in school.” Sherwin is afraid to show his emotions, but no matter — his heart volunteers for the mission, literally jumping out of his chest and bounding toward the boy who caught his eye. The heart wants what the heart wants.






A scene from In a Heartbeat  where a character’s heart has a mind of its own
.



It’s a tale that is very personal to viewers, who have responded en masse, and to the filmmakers, too. Mr. Bravo is gay, and Ms. David — while she doesn’t necessarily like to label herself — says she considers herself “a member of the gay community.”

Sean McLaughlin, one of the instructors at Ringling who helped guide Mr. Bravo and Ms. David during the production of their film, said he saw the short in preliminary form during the 2015-16 school year.

“Even back then I knew it was going to be something special,” he said in an email. “If an audience doesn’t connect with a film and its characters on a basic story level, it fails,” but this film, he said, “resonates a truth.”

Dr. Sean Griffin, a professor at the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University, said he believes it can be especially meaningful to adolescents who are figuring out their sexuality. “It turns a situation that is often fraught with extreme emotions — excitement, anxiety, fear, and potentially shame and embarrassment — into one that is ‘cartoony’ by literalizing the runaway heart, thus making it a bit more amusing,” he said.

This certainly isn’t the first children’s story to include gay and lesbian characters. There’s Ruby and Sapphire on Cartoon Network’s “Steven Universe,” for example, and LeFou in Disney’s live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast.”

Nick Davis, an associate professor of English at Northwestern University who has written about sexuality and gender in film, said it was gratifying to see such a variety.

“I do some programming for the L.G.B.T. film festival in Chicago and we’re increasingly struck by how the short films submitted are animated, and sci-fi, and fantasy, and horror,” he said. “And it almost seems like there’s no genre where they don’t show up anymore.”

The release of “In a Heartbeat” might seem particularly timely given recent headlines. President Trump has announced a ban on transgender people serving in the military, and his Justice Department has asserted that civil rights law doesn’t protect gay employees from discrimination. But the filmmakers say that their intent was not political when they posted their short online at the end of July.

“If anything we’re just glad that we’re getting to release it right now because I feel, and we both said, it’ll help change some people’s perspectives around the amount of controversy and hatred that’s been going around lately,” Mr. Bravo said. “We just hope that this helps to change, or begin changing, what people think about people in this community and try to understand them better.”

Perhaps one secret to the charm of “In a Heartbeat” is its simplicity: The story is told without words, just music and animation.

“I think audiences do like discovering something that’s not built to bowl you over, but just kind of unexpectedly does,” Mr. Davis said.

Thanks, Chuck for posting this! I really liked the responses from the 'elders' (oh dear! that's ME now!) as opposed to merely 'reactions while watching' (which I sometimes  dislike, when it is all about the vlogger and not really not about the film itself--but I'll try to keep a look out for other 'reactions').

In any case, tn this  video, I thought the people shown were very thoughtful, and had very truthful things to say, especially in regards how 'things' USED to be, as opposed to be how they are NOW--
(although they could have also said more about how, in some ways, 'things' for young gay people now are STILL not as good as they should be).

In regards the quality of the film, one of the women said that if she had seen it in a theater, she would have never thought it student work, but instead found it very professional and of high caliber.
She also said that she thought it could be awarded an Oscar. I agree. And unless people in the Academy aren't stupid and clueless, I think they will definitely do something to acknowledge/commend the film and its creators, Beth David and Estaban Bravo, up to and including a nomination next year. Why not?

By the way, look at these latest numbers on August 7, 2017--exactly a WEEK since the film was posted on Youtube:

We've gone a long way, but we still have a long way to go. And while I'm heartened (!  :) ;) ) by the ratio between the LIKES and the DISLIKES,
I'm saddened by the fact that, during the last few days, the DISLIKE people (lets face it, the haters) have been piling on and gaining.

I hope the Trolls will not win.

DON'T YOU THINK--??








The LGBT+ love story was created by David and Bravo for their senior thesis project at Ringling. It started, as all films do, with an idea: a boy's heart pops out his chest and chases down a schoolyard crush. They started pre-production their junior year in January 2016, and at the time, the boy's crush was originally conceived as a girl, but a decision was made very early in development to make the object of his heart's desire a male classmate. David and Bravo both felt a deeply personal connection to the idea.

"It was very important for both of us," David said. "It resonated with us very personally. We always say to each other that it's the kind of thing we wish we had when we were kids, something positive we wish we could have seen on screen."

"The moment that it turned into two boys, I completely changed my emotional response to the film," Bravo added. "When we were trying to write the story of the film, I would hear myself get emotional."

From there, the characters of Sherwin and Jonathan were born. Throughout the year-and-a-half-long production on In a Heartbeat,  David and Bravo split the work evenly, each taking the lead on animating individual sequences. When it came time to create their character rigs Beth David took control of redheaded Sherwin, while Esteban Bravo focused on Jonathan. "We worked alongside each other all the way, from beginning to end," Bravo said. "It was as collaborative as it could be."














DON'T YOU THINK--?? THAT BETH (SHERWIN) AND ESTEBAN (JONATHAN) LOOK LIKE THEIR OWN CHARACTERS??

I DO!


 ;) ;D

And here, Beth has the same cheeks and lips as Sherwin--!
