digital animation, firealpaca & after effects, 2020
burnout is a digital animation drawn in firealpaca and put together in premiere pro. it is a fan animation of (a redesign of) shinsou hitoshi and present mic from the anime my hero academia. the audio used in the video is burnout by fraxiom.
tweening was heavily used in this animation. all frames were initially drawn in firealpaca before being transferred to after effects. in after effects, the frames were moved around and adjusted to perfection, creating the perfect video at the end of it all.
with this animation, i really wanted to tell the story of what kind of character i think shinsou is. regardless of what the source material says, i personally believe shinsou to be a black nonbinary character, as is shown in my design of them in the video. i felt like this fraxiom song really resonated with the character i had turned shinsou into, and i wanted to explore connecting the two.
