The Live Series
dojoTV's Live Series is a site-specific live music video series
The Live Series bi-annually partners with different Chicago art spaces and develops a live performance concept with the artists it partners with. dojoTV's first Live Series featured three artists at The Dojo's former DIY space.
This spring, dojoTV is releasing its second installment partnered with art space Hostel Earphoria featuring seven performances.
dojoTV Culture Coverage
Beginning summer 2018, dojoTV will be producing short-form social media documentaries on cultural events & happenings with an emphasis on latinx communities. Stay tuned for simple blog-like posts.
The first piece covered this year's "Concert Without Borders" on the border of the U.S. & Mexico with a stage on either side of the wall.
Donate & Support
dojoTV is at the beginning stages of establishing itself. Below are the projects that could use financial support. If you have any kind of resources to support any of these projects please reach out or donate. Check it!
The Live Series: After two seasons of dojoTV's Live Series, we've run our favor list dry, and it is now time to hire and pay videographers what they are worth. We're looking for financial, catering, and/or gear support as we begin to collaborate with higher profile locations.
dojoTV Culture Coverage: Video gear support & partnered platforms can help us build out the media representation of culture and community events that often get overlooked.
Multi-cam live streaming: Preach Improv's show at iO Theatre has been selling out every weekend. In an effort to further amplify their radical take on improv & performance we plan to live stream their final shows of their run à la SNL with multiple cameras & an audio mix. However, due to the poor financial infrastructure for comedians in Chicago, we are looking for financial & equipment resources for four shows during the month of July 2018.
Artist Music Videos: In order to support emerging artists, we want to provide music video services for artists who cannot afford to hire a video team themselves. With outside financial support to hire a professional crew, we can help artists pursue their craft and be less capital-driven. Our first video is being filmed in June with little-to-no resources other than equipment support with The Dojo's own Mykele Deville.
