Who is Janet?
is an Emmy award winning sound mixer who teaches a very effective method for becoming “in demand”.
She started 20 years ago in the film industry, without going to film school and worked her way up, starting from knowing nobody… to the highest level work in the industry.
Janet grew up in a small Norwegian town in Wisconsin and now lives in Los Angeles where she spends much of her time working on film sets all over Los Angeles with creative, like-minded people, who are at the top of their game.
If you came across this site, then you might be a rebel. At least, you might be an out-of-the-box thinker. That’s what I am and actually it’s a good thing to be, in the film industry. My life is documented here.
See, we are all freelance. You are hired for shoots, like feature films, music videos, commercials, reality TV shows, entertainment TV, sitcoms, geez, this industry is huge! So, to learn to sink or swim… well, that depends on your ability to play this game!
It’s a fun game, it’s lucrative, and definitely it takes a certain mentality.
Yes, you’ve got to be good. But you’ve also got to be FUN, engaging with people, and it helps if you are FREE.
What do I mean by FREE?
Watch this video of me on set. Dancing. Yes, you will soon see that I’m not a professional dancer, but the Director asked me to warm up the background dancers, so I said, “OK.”
Anyway, if you like this video, well, you might be a rebel. You might be a “Friend in Film”! So welcome!
