Awe-adorable. I fell in love with this short animated film by these two talented university students from the first frame. The storyline is sweet and uplifting, the characters are clever and beautifully drawn, the background music well positioned.

The storyline follows a young man with a crush on a young woman. He fantasizes several different scenarios about how to get her attention, only to discover she too has a crush on him. All ends happily.

The animation of this film is outstanding, particularly the facial expressions. These two talented filmmakers have a bright future ahead of them. I had to watch this multiple times to enjoy the nuances of their expressions. And, I love how the story develops, with its unexpected and happy ending.

I give this film 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST!

Jonah, a high school drama club enthusiast, has a crush on his class mate, Beth; the school volleyball captain. Feeling uneasy to reach out to her as himself, he fantasizes acting in different personas to catch her attention. Little does he know, they both share the same feeling until an unexpected incident brings them together.
