Voiceover Professionals Line Up to Sign Up for FAFFCON 4January 5, 2012 by: Erica Kelly
Ventura Beach, CA, January 5th, 2012 – Registration opens this Friday, January 6th, for FaffCon 4: the voiceover unconference. Slated for 3 days in sunny Ventura Beach , it’s the first time the event for working voiceover professionals has come to California .
FaffCon, the semi-annual peer to peer learning event, is unique in that it is the only event serving those actively working in the voiceover industry – and so focuses specifically on those topics of interest to working professionals. Through the unconference format, the attendees themselves determine the content and set the agenda on-site thereby guaranteeing a schedule that covers precisely those areas of interest to the group. It’s a format particularly well suited to an industry where professionals may work in many different genres, yet share the same challenges and it’s the first time this underserved population has had a professional development event of its own.
Voicebank.net, the voiceover casting network for industry pros, is presenting sponsor of the event. “Voicebank.net looks forward to the fourth FaffCon event in Ventura ” says CEO Jeff Hixon. “We have been one of the supporting sponsors of FaffCon since the very beginning and feel that it is one of the most important voiceover events in the industry.”
FaffCon 4 runs from March 23rd to 25th kicking off on the 23rd with the FaffCon Friday Field Trip, a mixer that will be held on a private whale-watching excursion.
Registration opens on Friday January 6th at 9am Pacific Time / 12 Noon Eastern at www.Faffcon.com and is limited to 100 qualified attendees. FaffCon 3, held in September 2011 in Harrisburg , PA , sold out quickly and it’s expected this fourth event will do so as well.
FaffCon is a participant driven peer to peer event for working voiceover professionals. It is an open space unconference revolving around a dynamically generated agenda to share tips, generate ideas and have fun. Unconferences are an emerging way to meet fellow professionals to share ideas and problem solve with others in the trenches.

It is the primary casting and project management tool used by more than 1600 top Ad Agencies, Animation Houses & TV/Film Studios, Independent Producers, Production Facilities and Casting Directors (voiceover & theatrical) around the world.
