Here's the life of an "Inside Actor"

The Book on This Page Will Show You How.

Hi Friends,

Imagine feeling the life you always wanted is possible again.

Starting each day, walking onto a film set, coffee in hand, greeting everyone. Just another day in paradise.

Here’s the secret—You need to become an “inside actor”, an actor who works in front of and behind the camera.

An actor who gets acting opportunities from being on set. Who works in the film industry instead of a survival job.

Most people get discouraged from trying to become an actor through “The Traditional Way”—having a survival job and auditioning.

But month after month, you find very few opportunities that lead anywhere. All you can find is background work.

You’re not getting those opportunities that start a chain reaction of roles being offered to you, so you can actually start your acting career.

That’s because—being outside the business, people don’t know you.

So you are not even considered for opportunities.

We need to change that.

When you need to be growing and learning every day on film sets.

You need to meet like-minded artistic people…and act in their projects that go to Sundance and Cannes.

To start becoming known for your work. Traveling the world.

Shooting “on location” to Costa Rica.

Staying at a swanky resort. The film set is under the palm trees on the white sand beach.

Once you build the skills to work on film sets, you can live the film lifestyle.

It’s the best in the world.

Here is me 25 years ago.

Sitting in a cubicle all day, my first job after college, with a feeling of dread, “This cannot be my future.”

I always thought I’d do something unique and special—something that mattered.

But here I was in a cubicle making sales calls.

There was a decent salary. There was health insurance. But everyone was dying a slow death of no purpose every day.

While I knew I was meant for so much more, I felt lost and confused about how to change.

Fast forward forward to today, I work with world-class directors like Damien Chazelle (La La Land, Babylon) and DP’s like Rodrigo Prieto (Barbie, Killers of the Flower Moon), every week.

I work with celebrities like Brad Pitt and Samuel Jackson, Jenna Ortega, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift.

I run Friends In Film, which is responsible for the careers of so many actors, producers, writers, production designers, who work in major TV show and features for Netflix, Amazon, Disney, and Marvel, some of whom have even been nominated for an Academy Award.

None of this would’ve been possible without deciding to go into the film industry and meet the right people to get opportunities.

You will never regret people calling you to work on film shoots.

You’ll never regret learning lighting, camera lenses, and working with scripts, being just feet away when an epic scene everyone talk about… and you were right there.

You’ll never regret learning skills that pay you for the rest of your life.

Suspend your disbelief that this is possible.

If you want to learn how to do this, I want to teach it to you.

I want to help you build a new life working on Netflix-level sets. With new film friends!

And end up in Hollywood, like I am, if that’s your desire.

Meeting all the right people, traveling the world…

And radiating to the world, that anything is possible.

But I don’t just want you to take it from me.

I want you to judge for yourself…

The book is called INSIDE ACTOR because that is exactly what it teaches.

It’s the concepts we use with students to help them get working on major TV shows and feature films, live the most exciting life there is, and move toward their dreams.

But it also works to gives you direction on what to do each day.

Or build self-confidence in your abilities.

Or find shoots to act in, to build credits that go on your resume.

It’s the manual for how you get real world success that should be taught in school.

And it’s only $4.99.

Either way, this book can change your life. It’s 15 years of helping people get opportunities in the film industry condensed into 176 easy-to-read pages.

Love Janet! And her book!

This book is a short and sweet guide on why it makes sense to work on set. You can spend 10 years waiting tables and acting, and likely get nowhere, or you can work on set and be multifaceted, and learn about the ins and outs of the industry.

Using her methods, I was able to work on shows for Netflix, Disney, Bravo and MTV, just to name a few. I also became SAG-eligible, and got an agent!
