V.O. Dojo Pro Fight Club

static1.squarespace.jpg

A pro workout and workshop with the INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS who do the hiring. Show them you’ve got the goods, then see who gets chosen — and why

V.O. Dojo Pro Fight Club makes the audition process completely transparent – on both sides of the glass. 

What do working voiceover pros need?

High-Caliber Networking
Live Pro Fight Clubs start with a wine and cheese reception, where you can meet other working V.O. professionals from a variety of agencies!

High-Caliber Experience
Whether Live or Virtual, each Pro Fight Club features a guest director who is an industry decision-maker (creative director, copywriter, animation director, etc.). Each participant gets multiple takes, with individual feedback from the decision-maker, revealing the process of audition and callback. Everyone's a winner, but one voice is chosen.*

High Caliber Connection
Get to know the agencies and decision-makers who can hire us!

*DISCLAIMER: All our classes and events are strictly learning experiences. They are NOT an audition or employment opportunity. Industry pro guests are not expected to take home or otherwise access your demo or any other promotional materials. AGAIN: The presence of an industry professional is in no way a promise of employment, and The V.O. Dojo does not promise to procure employment for any participant.

Video Game & Mocap Director RICHARD "Mocapman" DORTON

Ready to be on the cutting edge of V.O? Video games, motion capture and virtual reality is where everything is heading — and motion capture/video game Director Richard Dorton is leading the way!

Richard, AKA Mocapman, is a veteran performance capture actor, director, stunt coordinator, producer, and casting director with nearly 100 video games to his credit, including Call of Duty, God of War 2 & 3, Star Wars: the Force Unleashed, Star Wars: Rogue Leader, Red Dead Revolver, Ghostbusters, Defiance, Lost Planet 3, and Borderlands 2.

He's also performed in features such as Tron, Spiderman, and Jack the Giant Slayer

Using diverse skills, from dance to weapons training, Richard has brought iconic characters such as Darth Vader and Conan to life. He also uses his talent as a voice actor, working in all aspects of video games, feature films, trailers, and commercials, often performing as several different characters in the same scene! 

There’s much more to Mocap than sticking dots on your face. It’s a precise, but intensely rewarding field that let’s you use your body as well as your voice, and it’s a growing trend in video games casting! If you want to add an edge to your skillset, you want to meet Richard!

I get so much out of each Fight Club... Well worth the price!

"Pro Fight Club is a GREAT place for working pros to "workout" their voice muscles and work with decision makers in the industry. I get so much out of each Fight Club! Well worth the price. Not only do you get to see what other pros do with the copy, but you get personalized feedback on your own! Love it."
