So I recently went to Anime North and met Deven and Ben and they're really great guys and they ran a good number of panels that were informative and fun. The whole event was amazing and they ran some really awesome panels. It ended up being a lot hotter this year than most people expected especially after the really cool windy first day. I ended up getting a sunburn since I hadn't brought sunscreen and I had just enough money for meals this year as money was a bit tight. Still I had great fun and look forward to next year.
In just a little over a month I will also be attending AnimeExpo although it's more of a business trip than a leisure trip. I'll be utilizing some of my contacts to try to swing a few auditions while I'm down there. I'll still have fun and all that but money's been tight lately and this trip is basically my birthday present and even if I fail well then at least I tried, you know? That and there is the open auditions at AX as well.
I recently did some narration work for a kickstarter video though I can't really say anything about the project or what it is until the project is actually UP but then I will likely make a post to link/advertise that then. I'm also working with one director for some potential future projects.
That doesn't mean I wouldn't love to get some more work with people. (Though again I will say, as has been told to me by the director I'm working with now, and other VAs, that it is important to determine the reliability of a project.) <-- What that essentially means is... if you are going to approach me for voice work I'd be more than appreciative but if you do have have established/published previous projects then please be prepared to show me a good deal of the project being finished so I can know it's not going to fall through. (Unless you're paying me and do so upfront.) It is just that I have been burned on projects before where I did the voice work and then nothing happened and the project was cancelled or never completed. I'm not going to name names or even projects but one was a really big thing when it's first ep and little spin-off video were out and I did VA work for what was to be a second episode which never happened. That was an established animator, too. So I suppose sometimes it's hard to tell if you'll be burned or not and I'm all for taking a chance on people I mean people have taken chances on me and I appreciate that.
TL;DR basically I'd love to work I just don't want to get burned again, that's all. Anyway thank you for reading.
