It’s been an amazing 2 days so far. We began on Tuesday evening with an opportunity to meet and greet one another. While I’m naturally a rather shy and introverted person, I actually really enjoyed these 3 hours. It was truly a joy to meeting, in person, so many of the friends I’ve made through the Internet, in particular through the VO-BB.com. And to make a number of new friends as well.
If you haven’t been involved in voiceover work for very long, you may not have realized this yet, but unlike most other kinds of performance work; voiceover is filled with tremendously nice, helpful people. So, it’s a sheer joy to meet and talk with so many nice human beings in one place. There are about 200 voiceover talents, ranging from “not even hardly started” to “working professionals,” gathered here in Las Vegas. And it has been one amazing time, with so much to learn it feels like I’m trying to drink from a fire hose. I think a lot of us feel this way. But, it’s still a wonderful feeling.
I’ll add further updates to this and one or two more posts about this conference in the next couple of days. But, please believe me, you are not going to want to miss this event next year. Discussions are under way about where to hold it, so there’s a good chance it won’t be in Las Vegas next time. But, where ever it is, you need to be there. I know I will.
