Kickstarter: Consider supporting “Being George Clooney”!

Here is more about the project: — From the Kickstarter description:

What do a German actor, a Brazilian ER doctor, a Japanese man who studied to be a lawyer and an author of children’s books have in common? They are some of the international dubbing voices of acclaimed actor George Clooney. Being George Clooney is a feature length documentary that delves into the creative, often humorous world of audio dubbing a Hollywood motion picture. The story unfolds through interviews with directors and producers, with dubbing crews, and with talented voice actors from around the world. The film explores both the personal lives of these voice artists and their lives as George Clooney’s “alter ego”.

As Hollywood depends more and more on international box office proceeds, voice-over dubbing has become a multi-billion dollar business. Film producers have to consider markets in Peru and Pakistan as well as Peoria …or lose substantial revenue.

Being George Clooney explores the business and the process of audio dubbing, from its curious origins in Mussolini’s Italy to technological developments changing the face of the industry today. But even more, our film will focus on the voices behind the famous faces. Who are these voice actors who spend a life in the darkness speaking other’s words into a microphone.

Being George Clooney is the first film to go behind the scenes to dubbing studios in Rome and Berlin, in Madrid and Mumbai. The film shows us the problems, the processes and the personalities that translate an American hit into an international blockbuster, and asks the question–what is it like Being George Clooney.
