So Billie Eilish brightened up everyone’s day by not only releasing, ‘my future’, which happens to be the first bit of new music since her theme song for the indefinitely delayed James Bond film No Time To Die, she also dropped a gorgeous music video which was animated by none other than an Aussie clipart enthusiast, Andrew Onorato.
Speaking of Billie Eilish music, the GOAT team talk about her big James Bong song on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:
While not much happens in the ‘my future’ music video per se, it is just stunning to look at. There’s no need for any complex narrative when you got an anime Billie Eilish walking through a gorgeous Studio Ghibli-influenced landscape while ‘my future’ softly serenades you throughout the journey.
Oh and there’s an adorable frog in the video that’s arguably even cuter than anime Billie.
The brains behind Billie Eilish’s wonderfully beautiful ‘my future’ video is Aussie artist Andrew Onorato and he’s definitely someone who you all should pay more attention to.
You may not know who Andrew Onorato is but there’s a good chance you’ve seen some of his work as he’s also worked on some other stunning and wildly popular music videos, such as Childish Gambino’s ‘Feels Like Summer’ and the Matt Corby/Tash Sultana collab, ‘Talk It Out.‘
Beyond music videos, he’s also dabbled in other entertainment areas, such as making animated shorts for popular video games like Fallout 4 and Wolfenstein 2, and a fantastic little bumper for Rick and Morty that was influenced by 1930s-era cartoons.
But the cherry on top of this super talented animation cake from Melbourne is Andrew Onorato’s official website. And what a website it is.
Unlike the slick designs we’re used to seeing these days, Andrew’s website is a throwback to the early 2000s MySpace era of Comic-Sans font and an overabundance of clipart.
There’s just something nostalgic about seeing a website ripped straight from 2007 that contains blurbs about the ‘Feels Like Summer’ and ‘Talk It Out’ music videos written in Times New Roman font. If you haven’t seen it yet, definitely check out Andrew Onorato’s website right here.
We came for Billie Eilish’s ‘my future’ but we’re staying for whatever Andrew Onorato is working on next, which we hope is another music video with Billie or another one of our favourite artists.
