VOBS-Voice Over Body Shop Ep.171 With Ian “Lofty” Fulton

2Dec

Voice Over Body Shop is BACK!

We are thrilled to be back for the month of December with two new shows! This week we’ bring you Australia’s big time voice talent Ian “Lofty” Fulton!
Lofty knows what it’s like to have the odds stacked against him: Born with achondroplasia, which is a form of dwarfism, he suffered years of relentless bullying, believing the lie he would never be loved or good enough. At 15, Lofty’s voice broke, giving him a unique gift that paved the way for his future. He’ll talk to us about his career in VO and his new book, Lofty: “My Life in Short.” in which he revels the darker parts of his life and how he became of the top VO talents down under! We’re excited to have Lofty join us at his lunch time in Sydney and give us insight into his success.
