MISHA CALVERT

Misha is an award-winning show creator with projects spanning film, TV and digital. An official participant of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival Digital Creators Market, Misha recently began production on a new digital comedy series for BRIC TV entitled All Hail Beth. Three-time finalist for the Sundance/YouTube New Voices Lab for her digital series Lusty GlancesSolitaire, and The Industry, Misha also screened at festivals around the world for her digital comedies Textual Intercourse, and Step Into My Office. She is currently in development for several new projects for 2019/2020.

As an actor, she has appeared regularly on the Emmy Award-winning show A Crime to Remember. Off-Broadway writer/director credits include three Chekhovian satires set in a 1980’s high school, and the original comedy A Seagull is Born. Off- Broadway acting credits include The Crucible, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Psycho Beach Party. Misha first achieved notoriety in New York as an experimental performance artist, where she garnered a great deal of press for her media manipulation and public satires, most notably Re-Virginization, The Mister and Miss Williamsburg Pageant, and the Bob Ross-themed fundraiser Beat the Devil Out of It which raised money for inner city art students.

Much of Misha’s unique voice comes from her experiences in both New York and London as a young, single female. Female empowerment is part of Misha’s core creative value system, and with each project she delivers an authentic female narrative with a female-driven cast. Her work is funny and charming while discussing equal rights, sex, and gender identity in a way that is inclusive to both men and women. More info at  www.mishacalvert.com
