Trad Xmas List: Film Producer in the USA
The usual suspects are all here; scissors, measuring tape, buttons, chalk and cloth. What makes 'Men of the Cloth' unusual is the heart of the Italian tailors. While Savile Row maintains an aloof distance and cool passion, Vicki Vasilopoulos allows us to see and hear men talk of tailoring as if it were a religion or a woman. This film could make a rock cry.
For 10 years, Vicki and her crew stitched together storia and are looking for money so finishing touches can be completed and the film released. If you ever wanted to be a film producer - here's your chance. Check out your crew and all their hard work here on the film web site. All you have to do, like most producers, is sign a check.
Vicki, through Kickstarter (site here), has raised almost $11,000 of a $20,000 goal. Donate $1,500 and you'll receive that associate producer credit. For a $750 donation, Nino Corvato will custom tailor a pair of trousers. For a $1,200 donation, Martin Greenfield will make a suit. There are plenty more incentives on the Kickstarter web site and I can't think of a better last minute Christmas gift. The deadline is this Friday, December 21st, at 11:39 PM.
