This is a needed conference. For all new and wannabe VO artists, they will be exposed to current VO actors who can give them the information they need to go to the next level or to stop now once they find out how much work is involved. Of course, for some, they won't stop just because of the work - they have the passion to continue on to the next stage. Keep up the work and pass the baton!
