Mezza Morta: A Twisted Web Series

$110 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 9 months

Mezza Morta is a horror comedy web series that reflects the state of the Internet (and America) today. Mezza Morta is a Frankenstein-like monster created by two Russian scientists in an attempt to infiltrate YouTube and influence the American public. She is a (literal) hodgepodge of YouTube celebrities molded together into one abomination.

I'm Jo Anna Van Thuyne, an actor, comedian, and filmmaker who has worked in the film industry for over a decade. I've worked as a producer in the Philadelphia area helping to create a number of projects throughout the years. I am ready to take the wheel and pursue my passion for writing and directing.

With $25,000 I can make Mezza Morta the kick ass web series I know it can be. 

Mezza Morta is a reaction to these stressful times. It's a representation of sexism in every industry. It comments on our divided country and even manages to make you laugh every once in awhile. This web series will satisfy feminists and gore enthusiasts alike with its practical effects and sharp political humor.

I have written the first season of this twisted web series, and I am currently in pre-production. I have access to a number of extremely talented professionals, and a special effects team that will satisfy any horror nerd’s gory fantasy.

I can't create this without your help, so please--donate today. Together we can show the world that a woman can create something that is equally terrifying and hilarious.

Hello Indie Film Supporters!

We've been working hard in pre-production for Mezza Morta and have a lot of fun stuff planned for 2018.

Steve Saturn recently completed another makeup test for the character. We even broadcasted it live on Instagram! We're happy with this more realistic decay, and we axed the Wicked Witch green. What do you think?

Make sure you follow me on Instagram @jopincushion to catch more pre-production goodness. We have to test for a final Mezza Morta look soon because we're shooting something in January!

That's right! I've written a prequel to the 4-part web series, and we are going to be shooting it in January. I wanted to give people a taste of the Mezza Morta universe, and I think I did it with this short.

The hope is to submit the prequel to different horror film festivals and spread the word on the web series. It'll also give YOU something cool to show your friends so we can get this made!

Make sure you stick around for more behind the scenes goodness. I'm very thankful for everyone who has donated their time, money, and energy into this project so far. I'm excited about 2018 and you should be too!

Make sure you share this campaign with your horror loving friends!

New look, same gore
