FaffCon? What the heck is FaffCon?

Filed under: Announcements, Business — connieterwilliger @ 8:38 pm

So what the heck is FaffCon – that isn’t a real word. No. But it has deep significance for us voiceoverists. (At least those of us who hang out on the VO-BB.)

It comes from the word faff  “which means to blow in gusts…..so to go nowhere in particular….to mess about. ” This is from a UK Yahoo Answers page.To some “faffing about” means – “To muck about, wasting time doing something not necessary.”
 
But this coming September it means a lot more than that. If you’re a working voice over professional, you’re invited to the first ever voiceover unconference in Portland Oregan (USA)! FaffCon!
 
Far from being just something the waste a bunch of time and money, FaffCon promises to be (according to Faffy*) …
 
You know all the meaningful encouragement, startling epiphanies, and blinding flashes of genius you get when you’re hanging around with your brightest and most creative friends?
 
It’s like that.
 
It’s a Bar Camp – if you know what that it. FaffCon is different from other conferences you’ve been to, because it uses Open Space Technology and is based on the belief that the sum of the expertise of the people in the audience is greater than the sum of expertise of the people on stage.

I decided I would go – so I paid my $149 and I’ll see you there. But you will need to prove you are an actual working talent with some talent. Check out the site for the details. It’s the first time for something like this, so who knows what will happen, but the concept is grand.

 
September 11-12, 2010 in Portland, Oregon USA.
 
*Faffy is the FaffCon mascot – a delightful blue dolphin.
