(VOXtra) - Showmanship counts in the voice over biz, and the array of sessions are entertaining as well as educational at VOICE 2012 - the huge voice over conference this week at the Disneyland Hotel and Resort in Anaheim, CA.
I've been running between sessions and the exhibit hall, plus networking in the halls, and along the way have caught:
... Dan Lenard and George Whittam - the East-West Audio Body Shop guys taping this Sunday night's show (pictured above chatting with VOICE co-producers James Alburger and Penny Abshire), and earlier, honing their wit while imparting home studio info during a packed presentation.
.... Voice talent / agent Erik Sheppard prancing about the stage, stomping on voice over myths.
... Voice talent / trainer Terry Daniel showing up pajama-clad in a riotous start to the Super Socials social media presentation featuring Terry, Trish Basanyi and Dave Courvoisier. And then taping a future Voice Over Cafe podcast (seen here: Trish and Terry interviewing Tom Dheere).
There's been so much more happening concurrently. Fortunately, VOICE offers attendees free downloads of all recorded presentations after the conference - and that's how we'll get to see everything.
FRIDAY GARDEN PARTY
An LA-style Garden Party brought us into the sunshine Friday afternoon, where host voice over star Joe Cipriano was mobbed for photo requests (seen here, Jack Bair -right - snapping Jimmy Kavadeas and Joe).
And of course, the VoiceOverXtra Cannon was firing on both days, too ..
