Campaign successfully funded on: 14 Jul,2016
We came up with the first comedy web series made by women in Turkey!! and it is called "My Single Married Friend". we thought "WE CAN DO THIS"!!!
But we need your help!
Many series talk about married or single life, it sounds like something already seen, but this Web Series approaches the subject differently. Set in Istanbul where you have a merge of cultures, religions, and opinions between east and west. We created a bridge between cultures to talk about the labels of society with a twist of comedy when it comes to life’s adaptation. All the main characters find themselves in situations in which they don’t quite fit in. Whether you are a newlywed, or a young entrepreneur, or a foreigner in a new culture, basically when you are 30 something and you are trying to adapt to life’s changes.
My name is Rania Itani, I am from Beirut, Lebanon and I moved to Turkey over 3 years ago to do my masters degree in Radio, TV and cinema. My friend Sierra Zanella is from Mexico, she also has been living in Turkey for a while and also came for her Master s degree as well.
We both have worked in several projects and several jobs in media. You can find links to our Linkedin accounts here if you want to learn more about our professional backgrounds :)
If you like comedy, and enjoy the occasional web series experience, this is the project for you. As foreign female expats ourselves who live in quite an international environment in Istanbul this funny web series reflects a lot of our own daily mishaps and adventures in this city...you can find a synopsis of our story in the next few lines :)
Together Maha & Sofía deal with life's absurd coincidences while trying to succeed as independent single/married women in Istanbul.
Now enough with the big talks...here is the deal. WE NEED YOUR HELP! obviously. We already produced two episodes but we were extremely lucky to have a lot of friends who lent us equipment and worked with us for free for those episodes... but as we all know, no project can survive on mere favours. And as our target goes up to 10 episodes/ season. You can imagine the effort and time the execution of those episodes will take.
Your contribution, no matter how little will help us:
- produce better episodes, and get even more creative with our writing without worrying about financial obstacles and logistics..
- We have a lot of good hearted dedicated people working with us for free, from actors to sound engineering, to DOP. We need to be able to feed these people, and provide them with good equipment to work with so that they can give us the best results we aspire to.
- We need to buy/rent props, transportation money --Istanbul is very big :( - ,
- There is always extra expenses for needed help. (Not everyone will work for free)
Last but not least, we understand that not everyone can help us financially, but we would really appreciate any contribution you can make within your own field of expertise, If you like our project and can think of any way you can help us produce it please do not hesitate to contact us. And don't forget to spread the word. please share our project with any of your friends whom you think might be able to help as well..

MSMF was originally created by Rania Itani & Estefania Sierra (any resemblance to reality is pure coincidence). Estefania holds a Masters degree from Istanbul University, where she completed her thesis titled: ‘’An analysis of the Mexican stereotype’’. She holds a…Full biography
