In a Heartbeat - Animated Short Gay Film

When recent college graduates Esteban Bravo and Beth David posted their senior thesis film it went viral. The short, called In a Heartbeat, is a simple yet enduring story, a heartwarming fable of young love and all the irrepressible butterflies that come with it.

Yasmin Element is Heidi Von Hottentot

If you've been to a FUSE event then you would’ve seen her on stage, and maybe even rubbed shoulders (or tassels) with her... Or maybe you were one of the many in the audience who can't resist but have your photo taken with her? Heidi likes old music, the kind you bop to. She may not be a great dancer, but she’s really good at bumping and grinding. Be careful though, because she will fall flat on her face if you ask her to do an arabesque. Heidi’s inspirations include Marilyn Monroe, Betty Boop, Liza Minnelli, and anyone kooky and offbeat. She also loves a good chase scene from the Benn...
