FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What am I getting and for how much?

You’ll get training that doesn’t exist anywhere else in Ontario: 24 hours, 10 actors, and 3 coaches, all of whom work regularly in the industry.  You’ll get the background and history, an understanding of the tech and the mocap-ulary, and rehearsal, a full day in the audio booth and a full day in “the suit” in a MoCap studio.  You’ll walk with your raw audio cuts and your mocap footage to use as a base for a demo (demo creation not included).  All that for $1149 (inc HST) . . . a single two-hour union AAA video game VO booking more than pays for it.

How do I apply?

  • Send your headshot, résumé, and on-camera and voice demos (if you have them) to training@mocapu.ca.
  • The deadline for submissions is Monday, May 13th @ 6pm.
  • We will select 10 participants from the submissions.  The company is chosen based on a balance of gender, age, experience, and ethnicity.
  • Full payment via e-transfer within 48 hrs is required to secure your space.
  • We aim to confirm enrolment no later than 10 days prior to the workshop beginning.
  • There will be a wait list.

What is the cancellation policy?

We strongly suggest booking out with your agent as soon as your spot is confirmed. Of course, we understand that actors may have work conflicts but, due to the costs involved, we can only offer a full refund if we are able to fill your space. We will do everything we can to do so.

What should I bring?

Scripts, something on which to take notes, lunch, water, snacks are all musts. You might have time to run out for lunch.  Lollipops and/or green apples may come in handy in the booth.

What should I wear?

For rehearsal, wear clothes you will be comfortable moving in.  For the audio day, don’t wear anything that makes noise.  At SIRT, you will need a t-shirt, socks and underwear for comfort underneath the MoCap suit.  Commando is prohibited.  Please wear comfortable running shoes, preferably without any reflective material.

Is there parking?

At Milestone,  you may find parking in the lot out front. On the audio day, there is parking in the lot just south of Supersonics on the east side.  Otherwise, on both days, there is street parking only. At SIRT, you will receive parking information once enrolled.

Are there kitchen facilities?

All venues have a fridge and microwave you may use.

What if I’m going to be late?

Once fully enrolled, you will be given an emergency contact number to call if you are delayed/lost/abducted by aliens (assuming they allow you a phone call).

May I audit?

Unfortunately, we do not allow auditors at this time.

Is there anything else I should know?

You will be asked to sign both liability and media release waivers. Be prepared to have a lot of fun and make some friends.  Come well-rested, particularly for the MoCap day.  Previous participants have remarked how exhausted they were by the end of the three days (they also say what an amazing time they had).  Check out our testimonials.

Can we all go out for food and drinks when it's over?

Yes.  Yes, we can.  After completion of Day 3, we will adjourn to a local pub for a Q & A and a social.  That’s on you.
