The first bit of friction on the production, and it’s my fault. With so many artists interested in the project, I took my time to find the right storyboard artist. There was no commitments made, only talking, but it was enough to feel bad when I had to turn them down for a more suitable candidate who came later on. It feels bad, but I’m sure I will need to do much more difficult things than this in the future. The truth is, as a recruiter, you never really know if and when you will use someone. You can be certain to go, or not go with a candidate, but plans change. Ideally you want to keep in touch with everyone, but ethically you know that each person has to live their lives and do what is best for themselves.
