March is going to rock/suck ... join me ...
Every year, March is one of my biggest months, and this year, it's going to be a lion.
Here are some of the big events -- try to catch up with me at one or more of them.
STAPLE! The Independent Media Expo:
I'm starting today with STAPLE! The Independent Media Expo.
I'm a comic book guy, really enjoy the freedom and gutsiness of the independents, and am blessed with meeting new people at the event each year.
And this year, an animation panel should prove pretty insightful.
Plus, there are more than 60 exhibitors (many of whom I've met over the years), and the chance to check out some top-notch ongoing talent not normally known the mainstream.
UPDATED: Read my lengthy initial summary here.
Game Developers Conference:
No, I'm not going this year, but GDC is a big deal for me each year, both because of my video game propensity, and my voice acting.
This year looks to be a big year, with the now-gen console battle in full swing, and no E3 for developers and publishers to make big announcements. I suspect I'll be blogging a lot.
south by southwest:
I'll be doing all three parts of SXSW this year. While I'll be doing the Music Festival for fun, I'll be doing the Interactive and Film Festivals for work -- with the former being a combination of more video game interests and testing the employment waters, and the latter being a combination of work and supporting fellow Biz folks I know.
UPDATED: I forgot to mention the ScreenBurn Festival happening in parallel with SXSW Interactive. ScreenBurn events are March 10-13 and require SXSW Interactive registration, but the ScreenBurn Arcade events (March 10 and 11) are free.
VOICE 2007 Conference:
This one's a hopeful maybe (and if I don't go, I solidly lay blame on BigHugeCorp).
VOICE is the big international voice over related conference, and I've got a lot of folks I know (including some past coaches) going this year. We'll see if I can get this one to fit into my March.
So, crazy month. Good crazy. Come be crazy with me.
It's not called being a "working actor" for nothing....
