Love is a beautiful, wonderful, fabulous thing.

But what lengths would you go to make it happen? To go from looks of longing and sweet interest to unrequited love be damned? To stoke those gloriously bright fires of love?

In Extinguished, a delightfully retro animated short film from Ashley Anderson and Jacob Mann, which was created at Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida, we find out how hard it is to make that first move but how fantastically heartstoppingly brilliant it is when you do, and it all pays off.

But the getting there is a whole lot of fun and angst and utterly endearing animation, not to mention way more popcorn than you might expect.

I am an extrovertive gay man living in Sydney who loves Indian food, current affairs, music, film and reading, caramel anything, and a beautiful guy called Steve who makes every day a delight. I am trying to get two novels in a trilogy ready for e-publication, love my iPhone & iPod, and am secretly Canadian in my soul. Life is fun, exciting and joyful and I aim to make the absolute most of it!
