These Amazing Shadows (2011)
The doc centers on audio dubbing of Hollywood films featuring George Clooney for foreign markets. Some of the voices hail from a German actor, a Brazilian ER doctor and a Japanese man who studied to be a lawyer and an author of children’s books.
“Being George Clooney” goes behind the scenes at dubbing studios in Rome, Berlin, Madrid and Mumbai, exploring the personal lives of these voice artists and their lives as Clooney’s “alter ego.”
The Kickstarter campaign is looking to reach a goal of $90,000 from Feb. 17- March 17.
The film is in production, with plans ti travel to foreign countries after the campaign to interview other “George Clooneys.”
