What is VO Dojo community like, and can you tell us about the courses/programs the students go through at V.O. Dojo?
The V.O. Dojo community is one of the most dynamic, diverse, and vibrant groups you will find…
The Dojo is home for people from all walks of life who come together to apply the mastery they have from other experiences in life to the medium of VoiceOver…singing, music, acting, stand up….
We recently had two ER doctors and the star of the Broadway cast of Phantom of the Opera in one class.
We have a dojo member who is a sophomore in college and one who is a retired judge…
People who have never performed in their lives and are exploring new avenues of themselves, and those who have been doing it forever and are looking to diversify their income revenue streams.
We have two divisions… Development and Working Pro
Development Division begins with our 6-week introductory course – “You Should Do Voiceover” It’s a hands-on, hearts-in comprehensive overview and little taste of all the ways your voice can be making money.
If you are sparked, you can continue with the 14-month Full Training program – Mystery to Mastery (M2M) that guides, supports, connects, and accelerates you every step of the way from “I don’t know” to working pro. Following the Belt Level system of martial arts, the M2M program consists of four belt levels – Yellow Belt (Exploration), Green Belt (Self-Exploration/DemoPrep), Blue Belt (Demo Production), and Brown Belt (Integration).
Working Pro Division when you complete the M2M program, you earn your Black Belt and can continue with the support of the Dojo as you step fully into the mix on your working pro path.
The Nth Degree Focus Action Forum consists of Weekly Workouts and bi-weekly Focus Action Meetings that ensure you have Clarity, Consistency, Community, and Connection as we come together to amplify our efforts.
The V.O. Dojo Pro Fight Club is our working pro workout that brings together top-notch talent with the hi-caliber decision-makers who hire us in all genres… We call it a fiercely friendly face-off that turns the audition process transparent… We get some of the best in the biz for you to bring it for. The tagline for Fight Club is “Yeah, It’s Who You Know…”
We also have all sort of other offerings throughout each month – Ask the Sensei – Free Monthly Q&A, Dojo Go Guides – successful Dojo members return to share their journey and best practices/action steps in different genres (think Inside the Actors Studio meets a Tasty Video), Demo-Listen Derby – our demo producer and I run demos through the gauntlet of the actual casting process revealing what makes a great demo…
We meet you where you are and help you take your V.O. career all the way.
