FaffCon is produced by and for working voiceover industry professionals. We usually have a nice mix of voice talents, audio engineers, casting pros, producers, agents/managers, copywriters, and more.
To participate as a voiceover talent, you must meet FaffCon’s definition of a “working voiceover professional.” We consider you to be a working pro if you’re hired by others on an ongoing basis to do professional-level voiceovers; being paid spendable money, by non-relatives, to work on recorded, spoken word projects.
If you’re an audio engineer, you’re an audio engineer; it’s probably not particularly ambiguous. But we’ve noticed in the voice talent category, that our intent is sometimes missed. We used to think that everyone agreed on what “working” meant. Oops! Not so much…
To keep the content focused and relevant, we think it’s best to be specific. In the context of FaffCon, we make a distinction between voiceover work and voiceover activity. (But we’re not minimizing the value of any of these activities, of course!) For example:
