Excellence, dignity, beauty, work, elegance, passion.This is what O'mast is about.Through the words of the tailors and connoisseurs.
"O'mast" is a documentary about neapolitan tailoring tradition. It gained the attention of more then 40'000 people on Vimeo with its trailer, but unfortunately not the attention of the institutions which turned us down after we had already started shooting.
O’mast means master in Neapolitan dialect. In the craftsmen’s language o’mast is the man in charge of the workshop. He is the one that really knows the craft. He gives the lines to follow, the style and the quality of the work. He is the reference. He has the necessary knowledge for making any kind of suit and to answer for any kind of technical inquiry by his workers.
It's a film about excellence, dignity, beauty, work, elegance, passion.
Since when I was a kid I used to go with my dad and my uncle to the tailor shop for their suits. I remember myself sitting on a chair playing with pieces of fabric in my hands while my relatives where checking the work on their suits with the tailor. I grew up with a passion for tailor made suits and a strong respect for the craftsmen.
The main characters are some of the best tailors in Naples and are accompanied by some clients who help complete the picture with their point of views and stories.
I wanted to deliver what is the real sense of a tailor made suit, which talks for any kind of craft. Mass production is taking over the entire market using sometimes tricky communication's strategy, like "made to measure" service or "tailor made" labels which are obviously impossible process for big brand and producers.
O'mast wants to celebrate the men and their work that many people appreciate in the entire world. O'mast wants to tell a story of knowledge that is something you cannot buy in a shop.
Please watch the trailer that probably explains better : http://vimeo.com/16443611
We need this budget to finish the project, to make a dvd, we still need to pay postproduction work and to produce the dvd.
We are trying to get into major film festivals. It is not a sponsored project, it's something that was born out of passion.
We are working to make screening parties in the major cities around the globe, therefore this contribution would be used even for funding a tour.
