: Still, with all the folks out of work, I'm more than a little surprised you've had trouble finding good storyboard artists. There's PLENTY of good artists out there (as I'm sure you've found out since you posted the job offers!!).

You'd be surprised at how few good artists are out there until you look.

It's not good to hear you don't want to see "Cow and Chicken" type boards, but it sounds like you've pigeonholed anyone who's done work on those shows as though that's all they can do.

I am the last one to pigeonhole someone from there samples, but unfortunately there is a world of difference between a Cow and chicken board and an action board and unless I can see that the artists is capable of understanding specific cutting and staging (which they do not use in that type of show) then I can't determine if it's worth gambling on someone to turn in a board leaving me to completely re-do it. As I've often had to in the past.

I'm proud to work in an industry where MOST of the artists are more well rounded than that. Unfortunately, that's what's going on, and if you eliminate anyone based on the work they've done on shows you may not like, you're going to have a hard time.
I don't care If the most recent shows worked on are Cow and Chicken, etc. I just need samples of other things.

Even Glen Keane worked on the "Chipmunk Adventure."
I can almost guarantee you that Glen wouldn't recommend hiring someone if all that was on their reel was Chipmunks.

: : Unfortunately that's what I would expect from a lot of the people posting on this site -- you'd rather whine and complain about not having work than actually respond legitimately to offered work.
