You haven’t heard much from me, here on Voice-Acting in Vegas about FaffCon4. Sheesh, the thing sold-out in, like…I dunno…a couple of hours?
One of the pluses about THIS un-conference is that the seating is limited. That’s so YOUR seat has the same great view as everyone else’s!
Unlike other events with open enrollment, FaffCon4 didn’t need a lot of promotion. Word-of-mouth alone led to the sold-out sign going on the door in short order.
Everyone in VO-land benefits from the lucky 100 attending FaffCon, ’cause like SXSW or TED, the ripples of inspiration and innovation spread out to the larger VO community. I find it so inspiring that this event grew out of a collective spirit on the VO-BB in the first place, and then has thrived under the careful and tireless watch of Amy Snively (and a dedicated corps of her associates — Chief among them: Pam Tierney, Connie Terwilliger and Peter O’Connell).
Yes, there are those associates, and then there are the supporters (and considerable cross-over). I suppose you could count ALL the attendees as supporters, but then there are those who extend themselves even further and become official supporters.
