Jo Pincushion

Hey! I’m Jo Anna Van Thuyne, but most of the internet knows me as Jo Pincushion. I’m a hardworking freelance creative that’s always ready to tackle that next project. Whether it’s putting together a campaign for one of my social media clients, or sitting down with a Luchador in my Creepy Basement—I’m always willing to give 110%.

I am an energetic and passionate individual with the ability to work efficiently and effectively with others. I am an intricate creative thinker and performer with the essential idea building skills needed to succeed.

I’m a writer, producer, host and actress in the Philadelphia area. As you can see, I’m ready to take on the world!

I started my career with ShadowBox Pictures as their associate producer. I went on to work on various local film projects like The Suspect, and I’ve grown a vast network of talented film professionals in the Philadelphia area. I currently work closely with Woodshop Films to produce quality content both online and within the industry.

I host and co produce an interview series on Scrapple TV called Creepy Basement. This is one of my favorite projects. I interview local and national figures that have a particularly creepy passion or persona. I’ve talked to special effects makeup artists, producers, horror hosts, and Skeletor himself. I love talking to people that are as passionate about the macabre as I am.

I’m one of the producers of the independent feature length horror film, American Exorcist. The film takes place in a haunted skyscraper on Christmas Eve, and I’ll be playing a few of the creepier elements.

I love producing promotional pieces for events in Philadelphia on Scrapple.TV. I also direct, shoot and edit short online documentary pieces.

Social Media and Content Creation

I am a passionate copywriter and blogger with a number of skills ranging from television production to social media. I am extremely well versed in the ways of the Internet, and I know the tricks of the trade. I thoroughly enjoy helping my clients increase their online presence.

I’ve been managing Social Media for a number of clients over the past two years. Social media is a great way for small businesses to build relationships with their customers, ensure credibility and create community. I love helping small businesses increase their online presence through strategized social media implementation, monitoring and content creation.
