Nickelodeon's changing job requirements...Looks like Nickelodeon is easing up on their usual policy of 3-5 years experience needed for storyboarding jobs. I know that always frustrates new artists trying to get in to the field. A new job post separates the requirements into "Basic Quaifications" (which I assume means that they're required) and "Desired qualifications" (Which sounds to me like its preferred, but not a deal-breaker). Now they desire only 1 year of experience, but they add: "and/or training on a similar show; or equivalent combination of education and experience." The bottom line is that studios just want someone good and reliable, but they don't want to swim through an ocean of amateurish portfolios from people that are clearly not prepared for the job.

Storyboard Revisionist Portfolio TipsEven if you’re just starting out to be a revision artist, the most important items in your portfolio will be your storyboard samples. The main reason why is that the studio will be looking for someone that they know can eventually grow and develop into the role of a full storyboard artist. The only way you can demonstrate that is to have a few samples in your portfolio.Storyboard Revisionist Portfolio Tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A storyboard revisionist is much more than a cleanup artist; they have to know how storyboards and film language work — a director might ask a revisionist to “restage this sequence and make it work.” A revisionist has to be well-versed in the art of storyboarding to interpret that kind of vague and common request (I ask my crew to do this sort of thing all the time).
Many artists that are just starting out don’t have any storyboard samples, but there is a surefire remedy for that: Go make some
You can create your own storyboard samples based on stories you come up with, or “borr
