Looking to storyboard your project? A great storyboard not only excites talent, crew, and clients, but also aligns your production departments behind the vision. We’ve compiled our top 8 websites to help you find and hire a talented storyboard artist.
1. Jorgen’s List
All the artists on Jorgen’s List are qualified by Art Directors so the quality bar is high. There are approximately 100 vetted artists so far. You can browse samples and each artist’s availability before reaching out.
Production Hub is an entertainment specific site that includes about 1000 artists worldwide. Artist bios include online portfolios. It’s free to post a job on Production Hub.
Behance is a social network portfolio site for artists and designers of all specializations. There’s a storyboard search that allows you to filter just storyboard artists. There are a lot of artists here, too many to count. Posting a job starts at $400, but it’s easy enough to message an artist directly if you like their work.
Upwork is an affordable solution to post a job. Artists are ranked based on previous projects and all payments are handled through Upwork.
5. People Per Hour

Mandy is like Craigslist for entertainment. It may not be pretty, but if you’re looking for storyboard artists that specialize in film, TV, video or animation, this is a good place to post a job. It’s free to post one job a month on Mandy.
Like Behance, Dribbble is a diverse community of designers and artists of all shapes and sizes. It boasts a nice interface for perusing portfolios. The downside is that you must have a pro account to contact freelancers. Posting a job is $375+.
8. Facebook Groups
There are countless Facebook Groups dedicated to the topic of storyboarding. While some these groups allow job postings, your job listing could get lost amidst all the image sharing.
While it couldn’t hurt to post in a storyboard group like Frame Dump, you’ll also want to post to sites dedicated to finding crew like Concept Artist or Animation, Comic and Storyboarding Job Ads which is focused on connecting artists and jobs.
Additionally, you can post jobs on broader production-centric groups on Facebook as well. See our article on crewing up through Facebook groups for our favorite production crew groups.
