On my first day on set for “The Blacklist”, the 2nd-2nd AD asked about my experience and I told him it was my first day as a PA for a union TV show… and he was completely floored. I was able to come across as someone who knew what she was doing and how to handle tasks like a pro.
Most importantly, I’ve made this year my year of discipline and focusing on my dreams. That is why I decided I was not going to continue to put my dreams on hold any longer, and I feel that FriendsInFilm is going to be exactly what I need to be successful in my career moving forward.
Fast-forward 2 years and I just came back from the Cannes Film Festival for the film I was a DP on. I’m also in the fashion world now, and have done camera work for Kenneth Cole and Freda. Every time I go on set, I tell myself, ‘Yes, I can do this!’
I was expecting to PA for a local production company doing a local corporate shoot and wind up with the DP of “Empire” hiring me. She gave me her card and said that if there was ever anything she could do for me, she’d do it in a heartbeat.
After implementing the A-list Model, I immediately was able to land a gig at Paramount studios. Two HUGE dreams came true – I appeared on an episode of “Stranger Things” and “The Walking Dead”.
That’s such a relief. I used to worry so much, and now I don’t feel that anymore. I learned to push myself in a way that’s not destructive. You will look and feel more professional, and that feeling of having a new identity should not be underestimated.
So I signed up for A-list in January. That March, I was able to quit my day-job when I was offered a 3-month gig as a PA on a TV show. My first feature film was “Old Man and a Gun“, with Robert Redford and Casey Affleck.
I’ve worked as a Props Assistant for the well-known propmaster, Martin Lasowitz, who did “School of Rock”. Now I’m an Associate Producer!
No more florescent lights for me! I’ve just recently finished “Dietland” for AMC network, “Villains”, and “The Hill”.
We don’t spend six months sitting in class…
We learn Actionable Steps and implement them month by month in the real, professional world.

You’re Protected With Our 100% Risk-Free Guarantee…
Test drive the first two modules of A-list. If within 14 days, you don’t feel we’ve delivered the value—just email us at info©friendsinfilm.com, show us your completed coursework, and we’ll issue you a full refund.
The reason we ask for your completed coursework is simple. We only want to work with people who are fully committed to taking consistent action. We devote tremendous time, energy and care to our students, so it’s vital that you’re as dedicated to this experience as we are to you.
This is our way of ensuring only active, committed people are in the Mastermind… so everyone in the community gets the help and support they deserve. We’re confident if you do the work, you’ll get tremendous results.
Let’s Sum It Up — Here’s Everything Included In Your Tuition…
Let’s review! You are breaking into the hidden professional film industry which cannot be accessed through online job postings or websites like Staff Me Up or Backstage.
If you feel concerned about “will it really work for me?” “Will I get the support I really need?”, rest assured that I and your A-list Mentors will dig into your specific situation and help you personally over and over again, throughout the entire program, no matter what the obstacle is. You’ve got your own film friends who are on your side inside with the professional entertainment industry community. You can get answers to stuff you can’t ask on set.
You can follow the A-list Method even if you have no experience. You’ll also get Done-For-You Resource Lists & Templates.
If you feel confused about anything, or run into a conflict… remember, I am there for you. I know what will come up for you. I am on film sets constantly so I know every situation that can come up. I can quickly tell you what to do, what to say, and what to do next. I will get you over your hurdles so you get that life of joy and being known for what you want to do.
Yes, it certainly can. Most of our students either have no experience, or have had experience that didn’t take them anywhere professionally. They have usually received that experience from film schools and other prestigious academies, but didn’t know what to do with it.
The thing is — building a professional career doesn’t magically happen without you deciding you are going to work on your set knowledge, communication, and quiet confidence (how you respond to conflict and stress). In A-list, you are truly doing it with my help. My most successful total beginners have taken anywhere from one month (rare) to 8 months to bring their career vision fully to life with people calling them consistently in the niche they envisioned.
For you, if you’re already entrepreneurial, have great conversation skills, and have a knack for making people love you at first site, you may have your career up and running in just a couple of months as well. For most people it’s been around 8 months… and for those who really need a state change, it may take them longer.
The A-list Program is ideal for those who need a bit of extra care because it trains you to think like an in-demand professional and avoid many of the costly mistakes others have made when they have desperately tried to get into the business. Being with us destroys some of the biggest mental hurdles you may be facing such as:
- “How do I get to my goals when I have anxiety or depression?”
- “What if I have an idea of what I want, but I haven’t done anything with it yet? How do I know my idea will actually work for me?”
- “How do I deal with the issues that have held me back in the past and I’m scared I may find out I don’t have what it takes?”
I can tell you everyone feels nervous about whether they are good enough to get to their goals at first.
But let me tell you this: if you like to learn a craft BY DOING… if you are fascinated by what happens on a film set… if you dream of a different life than you have today and want to expand who you are and shed your limiting beliefs, this is the perfect avenue for you to grow into the person you want to be.
The A-list Mastermind and the bonus trainings are delivered in a multimedia format. The material is viewable across any laptop or mobile device. So all you need is a device with strong WiFi / cellular service!
I’ve got actors, writers, producers, directors, stunt people, VO artists, sound mixers, costume designers, production designer, set dressers, and more who have used The A-list Mastermind to get connected for their crafts.
And what does competitive really mean? You must understand that to be known as one of the good ones, to “stay competitive”, you must simply learn how to build experience, represent yourself, build connections, and get people referring you and passing your name around in the production offices. And those are the key challenges we tackle in the program, for 8 months straight!
Regardless of what you want to do, today’s film industry needs to trust you and have a meaningful connection with you before they’re willing to hire you. Us professionals don’t convince other professionals to hire us: we let our own good work and character show everyone we are butter to work with. So if you want a real career, A-list is the answer to start growing it right now — whenever you may be.
You can access the content and mastermind (the BatCave) at your convenience. The core training consists of pre-recorded videos, resources, and worksheets so you can access the materials anytime you want. Over the course of the program, we’ll add new content to the portal and you’re free to learn on your schedule.
Weekly calls with Janet depend on Janet’s film schedule. Usually, they are on Saturdays in the morning, but they can be on Fridays and Mondays too. We will definitely let you know in emails we send out two days and one day before whenever there’s a change in time. We may have multiple calls during the week as well if we are covering a certain topic. Remember, the content we teach is real-time and updated weekly!
All calls are recorded so if you miss a call, you can watch it later.
If you plan to work through the live program in real time, we recommend between 4-6 hours per week to watch the training, complete your assignments and — if you like — engage with us in the Mastermind BatCave with other A-listers and A-list Mentors. Many of our students go through the program as best they can; they sometime need to pause (because life happens!) and return to it as their schedule allows.
Remember that you have the Modules for life!
Once you pay off the payment plan or pay in full, you get lifetime access to the training and can easily work at your own pace, on your own schedule. Most of our students have full-time jobs and families. This experience is designed to stretch you, but it can also be customized to your life.
The more focus and dedication you put into A-list, the more you’ll get out of it. To be clear, this is not a magic pill and you will have to put in some proactive work. You can’t just read the content in the Modules, show up on our calls, and do nothing with that information.
This program mirrors the reality of becoming an “in demand” professional — it’s intense, time consuming, demanding and something you’ll work on for the life of your career.
Yes, people in the freelance film industry go on vacation, buy a house, have babies, and take care of aging parents. If this is what you want to do with your life, you must simply START and know that it’s never going to be a perfect time. The best time to start was yesterday. The second best time is now.
It’s normal to be uncertain, but don’t let your fear keep you from doing the most important thing that all lessons in life and all good things will come from. Remember that the freelance film industry WILL give you a life beyond your dreams. It will give you freedom. Your baby steps will turn into big leaps as you see that you are wanted, needed, and have a service that people need on set. There are millions of productions who need what you have to offer. Have the courage to get your service out there and get good at it!
Yep, all the time! Janet is either on set or teaching The A-list Mastermind. So yes, she is personally invested in your success.
Yes. We back our program with a 14 day 100% satisfaction guarantee. You can read more about this in our section about our 100% Risk-Free Guarantee below.
Basically, you are covered with a 14 day money-back guarantee. If you don’t feel this program has delivered on it’s promise — just email our support team at email@example.com, show us your completed coursework and we’ll issue you a fast and complete refund.
The reason we ask for your completed coursework is simple. We only want to work with people who are serious and truly committed to taking massive, consistent action to create real growth.
We devote a tremendous amount of time, energy, and human resources into our students, so it’s vital that you’re as committed as we are to building your career.
