A traditional store offering handmade Venetian carnival masks, as well as mask-making workshops.

Ca' Macana created the masks seen in Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut".

What I delivered

 

I planned, directed and filmed this project independently, as part of my final university project.

I have always been passionate about Venetian art and history, which sparked inspiration for this project and pushed me to reach out to my favourite mask shops.

Ca' Macana were my first choice, as I had purchased my first ever mask there as a child and had heard so many wonderful things about them. Luckily for me, they responded within a few days and were happy for me to join their team for a week.

And what a wonderful week it was! 

I wanted to explore the incredible history of Venetian masks, whilst allowing viewers to "meet" the man behind the masks: Mario.

This video aims to celebrate the magical artistry of Ca’ Macana, whilst exploring the story behind it all.
