I’m An Electric Lampshade is a joyous, heart-warming, and offbeat docu-narrative adventure starring Doug McCorkle, a buttoned-up, mild-mannered corporate accountant who retires at age 60 to become the world’s least likely rock star. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction as Doug puts his marriage, life savings, and reputation on the line to chase his lifelong fantasy. An inspiring underdog story about finding your unique voice – I’m An Electric Lampshade is a film that proves it’s never too late to pursue your dreams. Shot in the United States, Mexico, and the Philippines, it features a strong supporting cast of undiscovered talent from across the globe – all chasing the same dream as Doug. The cast is a menagerie of real people portraying versions of themselves, bringing an authenticity to the film that would be impossible to fake. The result is a mind-bending musical odyssey in the tradition of “Stop Making Sense” and “Searching For Sugar Man“.
