Hey I was wondering, been following you for a long while now and just thought of asking- As a storyboarder do you think It's okay not to do animation? as long as you do good boards you're okay? because I really don't want to do a whole program on animation and want to try for animation concept art. and also any tips on how you get to be a storyboard artist in general. I'm sorry this is out of the blue! (im taking a boarding class rn btw)
When I look for board artists to hire it’s always a plus (A BIG BIG PLUS) if I find out they can animate. If you’re boarding for TV overseas studios will be literally tracing your boards as animation keys. You don’t have to be Milt Kahl but you should have a basic knowledge of animation. I mean, that is… The field you want to get into after all haha.
As for how to be a board artist… Make boards! Find scripts online or write your own and board them. Study films and TV and how they handle the camera. Make comics! And, of course, always put your work online so people can find you.
