I came to Faff Camp with high expectations. Each Faffcon event has been genuinely, incandescently wonderful; because of a combination of the awesome preparations of Amy Snively and the people who have attended each of them. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from Faff Camp since it’s not Faffcon.
It is different, but quite wonderful in it’s own way.
But, one thing that’s the same is the generous spirit and warmth of all the voiceover people. I’m sure there might be other groups or categories of people where kindness and generosity and sweetness and humor and friendliness predominate; but I’ve never found them. Voiceover people are something else.
The friendships we make at Faffcon and now Faff Camp are so precious. There’s something solid and real about them, whereas at typical conventions there’s a fleeting quality about relationships, here it’s different.
There was a panel discussion that wrapped up the day yesterday on the current realities of the voiceover business that was truly excellent. One voiceover talent and 4 studio owners each contributed really solid insights. Here is just one of thoughts that i wrote down:
No one is going to hire you for your “improved” weakensses. Concentrate your energies on your improving your strengths, not your weaknesses.
I’m looking forward to what today hold.
