Yeah, the campfire might be fake, but rest assured that Faff Camp is the real deal!
While you’ve probably heard of FaffCon, the Voiceover Un-Conference, there’s a chance that you may not know about Faff Camp. Both events are put together by the same impressive group of organizers, and both have gotten nothing but 5-star reviews by attendees.
In order to distinguish it from the Working-Voiceover-Pro-focused FaffCon, Faff Camp has been designed to cater to voice talent across a wide spectrum of experience.
I like to think of it as an event for people who are serious about crafting (or maintaining) a voiceover career, rather than one that’s only for pros.
From the Faff Camp site:
Faff Camp is a peer-to-peer professional development conference for working voiceover pros (not just voice talents, voice actors, and narrators, but all pros who do work related to voice overs). It’s participant driven and highly interactive, just like its sister event FaffCon. But much of the agenda is set in advance, which makes it possible for us to welcome a larger group.
Plus, there are cool things we do only at Faff Camp, like Topic Tables, Adopt-a-Question, and Lightning Talks! And since we have two tracks, Starting Smart and Working Pro, we welcome voice talents at all career stages. Come learn how to get to the next level, no matter what level you’re on now!
One of the many innovative things about the upcoming Faff Camp is that the registration process has been inspired by Kickstarter. If enough people sign up by July 11th (not too far away), then Faff Camp is on! If not – which I seriously doubt – everyone who’s registered gets their money back and you have to find something else to do March 19-22, 2015.
But my best guess is that you’ll be at the Omni Colonnade in San Antonio, TX.
