I must have sent a hundred job applications 9 times out of 10 I don’t even get a response, when I do it’s just to say that they ‘recieved my application bla bla bla’
a while back I attended a job fair, an art related job fair, I marketed myself as a storyboard artist and got a bunch of feed back on my work. didn’t actually get a job, but the feed back was actually relatively encouraging. I feel like it gave me more direction, I think my best chance at getting a job in this field is to develop portfolio work geared towards a very specific position, then market myself at events like that.
It gave me hope … got me thinking and feeling like this may actually be possible … I may actually be able to get a job doing this as a living.
but right now I feel like I need to revise my entire portfolio
if you want to build a new set of storyboards for a portfolio, how do you pick out your subject matter, how do you decide what to board? do you look up a script on google? pick something out of a comic book? re-board something you saw on TV?
I’m at about 60 frames right now but the script isn’t done. I’m wondering if I should continue or just leave it at that
