I forgot to mention it here oops. It's a freelance storyboard job that'll last about 4-6 weeks give or take. I'll be working on the HTTYD3 and I'm very excited about that. I did a storyboard pitch just over a week ago there when I went back to CA for a bit (also forgot to mention here when I did but I did
post the storyboards for it...) and felt it went pretty well though was pretty nervous. They called back a couple days after (I was expecting longer tbh) and said they'd want me on that team.
Last summer I actually was applying after an interview for the TV department as a storyboard revisionist but someone else got the job. At the time I wasn't too upset about that bc I wasn't in a good situation to do so and wanted to get back to CO asap. I told them I'd prefer a feature film position but it'd be a while till they were open again but I could wait. About a year went by and they contacted me again about the storyboard pitch and it's gotten me here now.
I'm pretty nervous about it but also excited. Storyboard artist has quite a bit more responsibility than a revisionist so I guess I'm taking the job right away and hoping for the best. @__@ It may be temporary but I'll be getting a paycheck and will technically be a DreamWorks employer! It's also a trainee job to see if they'd want me for full-time, which would also be great but I'd have to work out the issue with moving out there and transportation... I guess we'll cross that bridge if we get there though.
I'll be starting next Monday and I'm sure will be pretty busy with that so no commissions till after then.
Tbh it's so ironic looking back at my old HTTYD art and how I wanted to work on the sequel back in high school haha... hmm.. Didn't think it'd end up happening down the road so much but look at that. The HTTYD fanart I did was really what pulled me more out of the anime style like I wanted to and brought me up more to drawing how I'd like to. It's been very influential in my life and it'd be an honor working on it.
