Voice Talents, Live and in Person

Voicing a website narration in your pajamas (does anyone really do that? I have to be dressed to work ? if you count t-shirt and shorts as dressed): great. Meeting people online who also get paid to talk (well?to communicate): really helpful. Connecting with these online friends and new VO talents, for real, in person?: priceless. (Is that clich? overused by now? Probably, but oh well. Blame the jet lag)
Immeasurable kudos to Amy Snively for not only dreaming this up ? but making it happen.? Gratitude and love to all the Faffcon Founders?(if we do say so ourselves -? self-named, but that?s what faffcon was about!) for sharing, teaching, learning, contributing, risking ? and reminding me how much fun this business can be, because of its people.

Many of us began as voice talents back in the day ? um, like five years ago? ? when most of us had to actually show up in person to record a project. The commute was long, but the laughter usually made it worth it.? Only the promo guys seemed to have an expensive home studio complete with whisper room and ISDN. I don?t need to remind you how things have changed, with all the pros and cons that come with it.
But ? I will say this ? when you?ve spent all day voicing, editing, e-mailing, and communicating from your home studio ? all the skyping in the world can?t replace face-to-face contact.? So if you get the chance to connect in person, grab it. Or at least remember that lots of us are out there doing the same thing ? if we?re lucky.?
Once you?ve connected in person ? that cements the friendship. I really like my online pals, and now I love?the faffcon folks I learned from, shared skills with, and laughed with all weekend long in Portland Oregon. Yeah, Priceless. It?s a clich? for a reason. Kudos and love to you all!
And I even won a door prize!
