Back from APAC to the day job - Amazing time. Met so many cool people and got to rub elbows with the likes of Scott Brick, Patrick Lawlor, Lee Crooks, Johnny Heller, Simon Vance, Victor Bevine and so many others. RC Bray was supposedly there, the charlatan, but darned if anyone I spoke to saw him! Perhaps next year.
As an Audible platinum member since 2003 it was surreal meeting all these voices I've been listening to for so long and a whole lot of fun to boot. It's rare you meet a group of people like this where everybody is just super nice.
Both RC Bray and David Marantz urged me a while back to join APA and go to APAC, and that has been the best advice I've had to date. The panels and workshops were invaluable in understanding the business and how to improve my own work. Got a coaching session from Simon Vance, which has been invalauable in highlighting weaknesses in my own narration - much like RC Bray has already told me - boils down to don't emphasize so much in the narration and just 'relax', One of these days perhaps I'll be the one up on the stage!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
