About this Event
For over 30 years, Lotas Productions has given agencies, production companies and independent producers the assistance they need to navigate the complexities of creating & producing voiceovers locally and worldwide. Lotas works with voice talent across the globe. Much of that work is done remotely through directed sessions from voice actors’ professional home studios.
