I'm not eligible to participate in the program but I want to spread the information for those interested.
Nickelodeon hosts a Artist Program that gives artist a chance to work with the General Track or Storyboard Track part of the company. Winners will get hands on experience with the working artist and get to establish work with colors, backgrounds, character designs, etc. nickanimationstudio.com/artist…
My dream job has been to become a storyboard artist and I would take my opportunity if I was even ready for it. I'm 17 and I am starting to take my art seriously. I am making comics and I am (attempting at least) to keep a series alive (more like half dead it's been a month since I drew the last WHJ comic.)
I'm half and half with nickelodeon, they did well with Korra and other shows, so I gotta start somewhere.
Getting the opportunity to work with a big studio is A LOT to take in. And I know they do this every year, since I've seen this a second time from last year. So I got goals to have a portfolio ready to submit next year and see if I can win.
Some of the things they recommend to send:
- Character designs
- Backgrounds (including sequences)
- Sketches and works in progress
- Comic books
- Animation reel
I am working on animation and I am swell with character designs so far. If I plan it out right, I can be able to get the major of the list done and ready when they bring up the contest again next year. It's a dream I've been chasing for some time and I want to share it cause it's an importance to me. A big importance. I want my life to be about the art I create.
Thought I share the info with my watchers. Hope you guys have a swell day.
