Faffing : "The excessive use of time for nonsense activities.
My Fourth FaffCon
Why go EVERY year?
Take Sessions - Lead Sessions
Connections, Connections, Connections
One of the goals for me this year (and last year) was to amp up my marketing, I can guarantee you that I will be sitting down with Celia Siegel and talking about how to get more people to know who I am. I will be calling Cliff Zellman down in Dallas for some guidance on my Automotive demo as well as my commercial demo. I will be going through all my notes and will endeavor to join a stand up group to keep the pressure on.
It's a lot!
There were quite a few new Faffers at FaffCon6, and it felt good to sit and talk with people about the business and ins and outs. It's great being HELPFUL! I learn, and I share. The "Rising tide lifts all boats" mentality.
Only Once a Year
I can go into detail with what I learned in various sessions, and I'll share some things in following posts to keep you up to date. But here's the skinny.
As a Voice Actor, you're often alone in a booth, alone in a studio, it can be an isolated lifestyle with only a internet connection to people. The great thing about FaffCon is that it is a safe place to be with fellow talent and you can be open and honest about what roadblocks are in front of you. And then, people actually HELP you get over those hurdles. FOR REAL! IN PERSON! THEY UNDERSTAND!
I don't know how I was so lucky to be guided to FaffCon, but wild horses won't keep me away. I'll see you there.
