All of us in the commercial art field have to deal with the business of being hired. As a storyboard artist or previs artist it’s usually the director or production designer or vfx supervisor who does the hiring. In my experience word-of-mouth recommendations are the avenue through which 90% of the work comes, with resume/sample/web site making up for the rest. In any case, the last step before getting the job is the interview – usually in which you show your portfolio and reel. I just read a nice article with some good pointers on how to conduct yourself on an interview here. It’s helpful information to know.
I’m a storyboard artist and motion picture production illustrator living and working in the Los Angeles / Hollywood area, specializing in traditional hand-drawn storyboards for live-action and animated feature films as well as After Effects and CG animatics for pre-visualization and post production visual effects (VFX). I also draw and sketch a lot and upload it to the Sketchblog here and social media – just for fun!
