“Being George Clooney,” a new documentary by “These Amazing Shadows” co-director Paul Mariano, has a launched a Kickstarter campaign.

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.”

    Sounds like a great project. It must be strange being recognized as George Clooney by your voice only.

    I always find it fascinating to watch dubbed movies. It is hard to imagine that people in other countries associate a completely different voice to an actor we hold so dear in America. Clooney’s voice is so smooth and distinctive. I hope the voices from other countries do him credit!

    I hope it gets made, wherever the funds come from. From the article, it seems probable that funding would improve and enhance rather than make-or-break, which is good.
