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.

Seems to me like a financial decision. Get talented inexperienced youngsters and work them for a lot less money? Sorry for the cynicism.
woooah Hopefully that will make things easier for me by the time I graduate.
Wow, this changes everything.
How's their attitude on working remotely?
Oh jesus, thanks, this is awesome.
Yay! I'm glad people are starting to remember the benefits of a trial by fire.
