V.O. Dojo Pro Fight Club
A pro workout and workshop with the CASTING DIRECTORS and INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS who do the hiring. Show them you’ve got the goods, then see who gets the job — 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 (casting director, copywriter, animation director, etc.). Participants get two turns to audition, getting feedback from the decision-maker to make adjustments. The decision-maker then reveals who he or she would call back and why, and ultimately rewards the job. Everyone's a winner, but one voice is chosen.

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."
