V.O. Dojo Pro Fight Club
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?
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!
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.*

*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.

This one is Live - you need to be in LA to attend!
Narration for Documentaries, with Award winning film maker Daniel Raim
Daniel has made many note-worthy documentaries, including a trilogy of films about the unsung heroes of Hollywood’s Golden Age. They’ve taken him as far as Cannes for L'Œil d'or, le prix du documentaire nomination…that’s The Golden Eye award!
He has a new project in development, and would love to work with the folks at the Dojo on the voice that runs through a series for TV.
Daniel's debut film, an intimate profile on Hitchcock’s collaborator Robert F. Boyle, entitled The Man on Lincoln’s Nose, was nominated for the 2000 Academy Award® for Best Documentary Short Subject. His second film, Something’s Gonna Live, premiered at the AFI Film Fest and received a Los Angeles Times Critics’ Pick from Kenneth Turan. His third film, Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story, premiered as an Official Selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for that esteemed Golden Eye Award. Harold and Lillian screened in 68 cities in the US
Daniel has screened his films and lectured at: Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, HOT DOCS, DOC NYC, Cannes Film Festival, Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, AFI Conservatory: Harold Lloyd Master Seminar, Walt Disney Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, ILM, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Sony Animation Studios, and Canadian Film Center/TIFF Bell Lightbox, among others
Daniel’s award-winning documentaries are inspired in part by Robert Boyle’s creative philosophies and humanist approach to cinema. He embodies the art of factual story telling, and if this genre is of interest to you, you really want to meet Daniel Raim!
FIRST-TIME PROS: Fight Club is open exclusively to working V.O. pros. Please fill out this form before registering. (Once approved, you can sign up to play any time!)

Best. Voiceover. Workshop. Ever.
"Best. Voiceover. Workshop. EVER. – last night at the V.O. Dojo!!! This new 'Fight Club' workshop created by Tish Hicks is cool. Check it out, and stay thirsty, my friends."
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."
