“One of the more

Jaw-Dropping Debuts

you’ll ever see.”

— Michael Fox, KQED, San Francisco

“Easily one of the

Best Documentaries of the year.

Doug McCorkle is my new hero.”

— On: Yorkshire Magazine

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.
