This new animation will melt your heart

Cape Town - We all know what it feels like to have a crush on somebody. 

A cute animation has tapped into those feelings in a new short film.

The 25 second trailer for the film In A Heartbeat shows a beautiful depiction of blossoming love between two boys. 

While no words are spoken, we see a redhead trying to control his heart when his crush walks by. 

Watch it here:

Mashable reports that the film was created by animation students Beth David and Esteban Bravo for their senior thesis. 

According to the duo the story "follows 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."

The full film will release online later this year.
