It was so terrific to see George Whittam at FaffCon last month! I’m on his newsletter list so I don’t miss any of his insights and tips. Imagine my joy when he shared about his FaffCon experience in his latest email. Check it out:
Its been two weeks since FaffCon 4 wrapped in Ventura, CA. For me it was more rewarding than I anticipated, and not in the ways I expected it to be… Before attending FaffCon 4, my first FaffCon, I considered it to be primarily a networking opportunity. Not a voice actor myself, I wondered exactly how it would benefit me and my business. The thing is about an unConference like FaffCon, you have no clue what lies ahead until the moment the ideas for break-out sessions hit the scheduling wall. It was such an organically formed process, and it worked brilliantly.
I also knew Id like to share some wisdom, but until the day came I didnt know what exactly it might be. On the day, Dan Friedman, a voice actor/studio owner from North Carolina, suggested all of the techie types lead a panel together, to ensure the information we shared could be provided in a unified way. Seven of us gathered for a panel, and the truth of it was that if nobody even showed up, we still would have had a great time bouncing thoughts off each other. Those who came got their questions answered in detail, and others absorbed as much as they could handle.
