7 Top “Faffcon” Voiceover Blog Posts This Week – September 28, 2014

1948115_687971947911289_3843708365757394745_n - CopyAs you know, the annual Voiceover Unconference known as Faffcon wrapped up this past week at the beautiful Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort and Spa, in Tucson, Arizona. Faffcon 7 was a HUGE success for the 100 voice artists who attended. This was my first trip back since Faffcon 2 in Atlanta in 2011, and once again, it did not disappoint.

If you unfamiliar with Faffcon, it is the only conference for working VO professionals whose content is 100% created by and for the participants. A working retreat of sorts in which various VO topics are explored in peer-led groups, an unconference. The objective and guiding principle behind FaffCon is very simple- “Get What You Need, Share What You Can”.

20140918_171220 - CopyAnd indeed that’s magically what happened in the desert of Arizona this past week.

I went to Faffcon with an agenda of ideas, objectives, and questions that I was looking for other vo talent to help me sort out and answer. I returned with even more answers and golden nuggets than I thought possible. Needless to say, since my return, I’ve started my action-plan (thank you Tom Dheere) toward taking my voiceover business to the next level, thanks to all of my Faffcon-Family!

In keeping with tradition, Faffcon creator, Amy Snively, put the Faffers to the test of leaving the location of the event in a better state than we found it, by asking participants to contribute to a local charity. This years recipient of the Faff-charity campaign was the Child Learning Center, in Tucson, who help children who have difficulty with their communication skills and abilities. Fellow faffers dug deep and set a new record by donating $5,500 to the charity. What a feeling it was to see the Director of the Learning Center receive the check. Not a dry eye in the house! Wow!

After I published this article, which included 7 articles written by my fellow-faffers, my good friend, Karen Souer published an article that shared her Faffcon experience, so I wanted to be sure Karen got the pub she deserved.
