Being Luis Porcar Dialogue
Hello, my name is Luis Porcar.
My work consists of dubbing the voices of foreign actors for the Spanish versions of commercial films.
Amongst others, I have dubbed the voices of Michael Douglas, George Clooney and Chuck Norris. On several occasions, I have dubbed John Malkovich.
Manuel Saiz is a visual artist whose works are about technology, language and cultural structures.
He asked me to record this video with the aim of requesting John Malkovich to dub it into English. Due the distance that exists between the art world and cinema, it may be a difficult project to pull off.
If what you are listening to is in English you are hearing the voice of John Malkovich. If it is Spanish, it is mine.
