Reason number one: This short animation was made by two design students. But when you watch it, you wouldn’t think that. You’d think this was something straight out of Pixar. These students are incredibly talented.
Reason number two: More importantly than reason number one, this short film depicts the story of a boy coming out. In just over four minutes, this animation gives such a vivid picture of the heartbreak, the struggles and the fears of someone who hasn’t come out yet. It is heart breaking, funny and beautiful all at the same time.
The short film shows a shy boy whose heart jumps out of him and tries to get the attention of a boy he likes. The four-minute animation will bind you to your seat. It rouses such emotion in such a short amount of time.
