Are you ready to go straight onto professional sets?

The A-list Mastermind blows away film school because it gets you working in the professional film industry.

You learn from world-class DP‘s directors and producers while you get paid.

Instead of sitting in a classroom, you go straight onto these big sets and start your career.

Are you up for it?

You’ve got this… With the A-list Mastermind.

Make no mistake, this is the best thing to do if…

  • You want the fastest way to become a professional now.
  • You learn best hands-on and want to get paid while you learn.
  • You’re an actor and want to implement the “inside actor” strategy from the book, INSIDE ACTOR.
  • You are ready for a life change and want Janet and her team of seasoned professionals to guide you, show you the way, and even refer work to you.

The professional industry trusts us to supply capable people, so when you apply, we will make sure that you are mentally capable, aligned with our values, and can express yourself professionally through an email.

When you make your first payment, we will ask you a few questions and will determine whether you are officially invited into the A-list mastermind. If you are not invited, your payment will be immediately refunded.

WATCH THESE CASE STUDIES:




Jesse—

Before The A-list Program, Jesse worked in psychology. For years, he tried to break in but never landed more than a few student films. He almost had given up.

He implemented the A-list Model and now is a Production Manager who recently worked on the feature film, Torrance, with Ben Affleck. He also worked on Ghostbusters.

Tamara—

Tamara is an actress who applied our A-list Model to book acting work, land jobs in casting, and even work in wardrobe. (She never knew anything about wardrobe!)

Now, she is a wardrobe stylist making $550/day and a SAG actor earning as much as $2,400/day working for the networks!







Carlton—

Carlton implemented the our Formula and is now working on big feature films. He has worked on Call of the Wild with Harrison Ford, and also Veep, American Horror Story, and Law and Order.

If you have any doubt on whether you can do it, realize that people straight of our high school, people in their 50s, people with two kids and a mortgage… they’ve all done it. And you most definitely can too.

I used to be a cocktail waitress, now I work with all of the big players, like Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth. I was taken under the wing of one of the executive producers of “It”.

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.

Sparkman Actor
This is a tough industry and its less about talent and more about who you know!! used to one of the top media companies in the world, and I can say I definitely understand that statement a ton.

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.

Deja Filmmaker
Honestly, I wasn’t even sure if I could get on a volunteer job when I started the program, but FriendsInFilm gave me the strength and guidance I needed for every job opportunity I got.

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!’

Goran DP | Winner at Cannes
With the A-list Mastermind, I’m most excited about the relationships I’m forging with industry professionals that I NEVER would have made just by being an actor alone.

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.

Allyson Actor and Dancer
Before signing up for The A-list Program, I did everything I felt I can do to get people to notice my work: I applied to postings, emailed my resume, called people cold… but it was going too slow and I wasn’t landing enough jobs to pay my bills.

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”.

Patrick Sound
The biggest thing for me is realizing I was not alone on this journey. And it’ll be the same for you: you’re with peers and friends. You’re in a community of like-minded people with the same aspirations, challenges, and worries.

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.

Melanie VFX Coordinator (UK/Germany)
I used to work for wholesale and was afraid to sign up for the A-List Program because I never thought I could get consistent work from the film industry. BUT I also knew my life would stay mundane and nothing extraordinary would happen towards my dreams if I stayed put.

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.

Crystal Production Coordinator
I used to work in the restaurant industry… now I see my name and my friends’ names in the credits of “Mr. Robot“, “FBI“, and “Broad City“, and it just brings me so much joy. You guys don’t understand how much I love this industry and how my life has been completely changed. I can work for 2 weeks straight, take 1 day off, and immediately want to get back on set.

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!

Rooni Associate Producer
I’ve just finished a 30-day Miramax feature on-location in New York, working as a 2nd AD. I used to be a pharmacist, and FriendsInFilm helped me transition into what I really loved to do.

No more florescent lights for me! I’ve just recently finished “Dietland” for AMC network, “Villains”, and “The Hill”.

FAQs

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.
