Create a career in the PROFESSIONAL film industry that gives you an amazing life — whether you’re a total beginner or you’ve been at this for awhile.

Enrollment ends: October 9 at 3pm PST

You’re Here For a Reason

Perhaps you’ve heard that voice inside that keeps whispering, “It doesn’t have to be this way. You’re meant for more than this…”

Or maybe you’re feeling that mix of anticipation and fear because you’ve got something important to share with the world — but you haven’t yet figured out how to turn it into a career.

That inner voice is correct. Your feelings are on point.

You’ve barely scratched the surface of what you can personally achieve, and you know it.

Since you’re reading this, you’re ready to change all that. Whether you’re an actor, writer, producer, DP, or any of the crafts on set… whether you’re a total beginner or have PA experience, here’s one thing that’s certain:

Doing what you LOVE in film can profoundly change the quality of your life.

I know this firsthand. After 22 years in the business, I can honestly say that working professionally in this business is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding adventures you can experience in this lifetime.

I also believe that our world improves for everyone — in stories being told, new productions impacting the world — when more people like you become leaders in the field.

Which is why I’d love you to join us for the A-list Work-Study Program. I’ll help you fast-track your growth, achieve extraordinary results and save you years of frustration and expensive trial and error.

I will teach you to be seen as up-and-coming in only 4 weeks, working REGULARLY on film shoots in 3 months, moving into your craft in 3-6 months.

No school can do that.

A-List Work-Study… turns you into an “In-demand” PROFESSIONAL while you WORK ON SET!

Here’s what you’ll get in A-list Work-Study

Clarity

SEE what you want to do in the film industry in income and lifestyle, and use A-list Work-Study to do the right things to go straight into that job.

Guidance

Come every week to our Weekly Zoom calls, DANCE, get your questions answered, and know what to do every week.

Build confidence, communication, reputation skills.

So you make a great impression, get asked to work in all the departments on set, and build valuable relationships for future work.

Training

Apply the Work-Study methods to get PAID PROFESSIONAL work on small and medium shoots in your area, start getting your union qualifications, to move into the craft you want to do in record time – cutting 10 years off what it takes most professionals.

Here’s What You’ll Do Over 8 Months to Get The Kind of PAID, PROFESSIONAL Work That Gives You the Lifestyle You Want

A-list is broken down into 4 core training phases.

Phase 1

Reputation Builder Phase

Every remarkable business is built on a strong foundation.

In this phase, you’ll clarify your career vision and set career growth goals. We’ll help you know how to represent yourself so people think of YOU as your craft. You’ll discover how to develop the right relationships, find the right production companies to hire you consistently and create a steady stream of PROFESSIONAL film shoots to learn on.

We’ll also help you harness your unique strengths, personality and skills so people think “you’re good” without you saying it:

  • Know what to do on set that is exactly what producers want to see
  • Create a basic resume even if you have little to no experience
  • Continue to build your experience in the many departments on set to build trust, get people knowing you, and expand people calling your for work — while you have your day job
  • Successfully balance your current job with film production work until you are offered so much film work, it is clearly time to quit the day job
By the end of Phase 1, you’ll have a rock solid foundation and a clear action plan resulting in professionals knowing who you are, being on many people’s lists to hire, and you feeling confident about what you are good at on set, and that people should hire you for your craft (acting, writing, producing, DP, editing, etc.)
Phase 2

Get on Shoots to Gain PROFESSIONAL experience & life-long mentors

Understand the PROFESSIONAL film set by working on set! Gain confidence you know what to do to be helpful, and can quickly do any task on set and keep things moving smoothly on set.

In this Phase, you’ll learn how to be seen as “one of the best” on set so you become “first call”. Know exactly what to do, what to say, how to help each department on set, so people see you as hardworking, thinking on your feet, and confident. Build trust, respond correctly, and learn how to appropriately respond to people calling you for work. You’ll find small and medium shoots in your area, use Get on Shoots method to get on them, and avoid costly and catastrophic disasters that newbies make that can end their career. You’ll also:

  • Get step-by-step “to do” on set when first arrive to end of day
  • Understand what is happening on set so you have “get it” factor when talking to professionals who are working on set
  • Shed the uncomfortable feeling that you “want something” that secretly sabotage your efforts and come across with confidence.
No matter what your experience level, you’ll have everything you need to ensure you are coming across as effective and confident as possible which leads to a steady stream of professional paid work.
Knowing “What to Do” Resources

  • Magic list to find shoots happening to get experience on
  • Sector knowledge to find the right people for what you want to do
  • A-list Backpack so you are super prepared.
  • My Personal Shortlist of how I get my name passed around in production offices, and get directors requesting me… and you will be doing the exact same ways of operating on set that get you requested!
Phase 3

Design an Income Building Strategy for Your Craft

Get paid assistant jobs on PROFESSIONAL sets, assist in the departments to make solid relationships with people who will hire and refer you for a lifetime.

In this phase, you’ll develop a consistent, doable plan to stay connected to the people who hire you, attract new work through referrals and increase your set days. You’ll become more confident on set, with mentors who you can call or text when you’re working with new equipment, new situations, new relationships with referrals, contracts, agent and coach opportunities. You’ll also:

  • Find and go to industry-known camera, lighting, prop, grip houses for workshops to learn on set techniques, post-production workshops, and expand industry connections
  • Practice the 50/50/20 rule — 50 solid relationships with people who hire you, 50 solid relationships with people who refer you, and 20 relationships with people who are on your team, even if you are a total beginner and have no connections.
  • Get what to say, when to say it, how to negotiate so they think you’re good, and in demand, to reap the enormous rewards and trust that come from communicating like a pro.
At the end of this phase, you’ll know exactly what, where and how to build PROFESSIONAL work flow, to be seen as one of the best, and get opportunities like working for Netflix, BBC, Disney, Marvel films.
Done For You Communication – Emails (we don’t use cover letters), resumes, website, profiles, texts, instagram presence.

  • Follow up with Friends Method makes it easy to reach out without seeming like you’re desperate
  • My “Moving Fast in Your Craft” Checklist: this is what I use as a guide to prepare myself for big, career-changing shoots
  • Complete Email and Resume Swipe File with samples for how to update when get experience, and how to seek out additional experience in sister crafts to show a broad knowledge of your craft
Phase 4

Design Your Own Work-in-the-Crafts Strategy

You must have a plan to work in the sector that gives you the lifestyle you want, otherwise you can end up being busy with a company, like promos, that pays you good money, but isn’t going to lead you to do the work you really want to do.

In this Phase, you’ll develop a work-targeting method to get experience on small and medium shoots, doing your craft, while you also work on big budget shoots, to form relationships with department head on union sets. You’ll learn how to stay connected to these key professionals, so they think of you for work they are not able to do, the lower budget non-union work, which is perfect for you to build your experience.

You’ll also:

  • Should be on 40+ sets by this time. Will have quit your day job.
  • Mix $200/day jobs with $650/12 niche jobs working in a department.
  • Develop best practices to stay consistent and reap the enormous rewards that come from being on set helping out and learning everyday on set.
At the end of this phase, you’ll know exactly how to get consistent work doing what you love, have plenty of film friends, and know exactly what to do to reach out and get the kind of work you want, travel jobs, acting opportunities, writing jobs, directing and shooting 2nd unit or other work that pays well and keeps you growing professionally.
Just for ACTORS

Breaking in from the inside for ACTORS

You will be doing the A-list method of getting on small and medium shoots to get acting experience and footage for a reel, during all the phases.

We are approaching acting from behind the camera first to make real connections with people and work my way up by BEING A PEER instead of just another face at an audition.

Your new survival job is going to be the film set. Pays MORE and is fulfilling to you.
Acting and Camera. Acting and AD. Acting and Writing.
This is taught months 1-8, the entire time, because you’re always focused on acting, if you’re an actor.

You’ll also:

  • Learn how to balance being on set with knowing when to quit your day job.
  • Decide what jobs behind the camera interest you, so you are either in front of or behind the camera
  • Negotiate to get paid as an actor, even if it’s $100 per day initially.
  • How to ask to audition while inside the production offices for roles that are a match for you.
You’ll know exactly how to balance working in front of and behind the camera, have a fun and top of mind relationship with producers, CDs, and directors. And be digging up your own work, to be more in the know, than even your agent!
If you don’t have an agent, you’ll learn how to build up principal roles so an agent is interested. And then you’ll learn what to do to reach out to agents, with the experience and connections you’ve build yourself.

Top FAQs

Yes, it certainly can. Most students either have no experience or have experience and are still not getting anywhere professionally, and leave with professional experience on major networks, professional reels, resume, and professional connections for what they set out to do originally. To be clear, building a professional career doesn’t magically happen without you deciding you are going to work on your knowledge, communication, state, and confidence. 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 consistently in the niche they envisioned.

While we can’t guarantee that outcome for you, what we can say is this.

The A-list Work-Study Program is ideal if you’re just starting out because it’ll show you how to get on professional sets, train you to think like an in demand professional and avoid many of the costly mistakes we can make when we try to get into the business. Plus, included in your tuition is a training course especially for total beginners called Quiet Confidence. It tackles 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?”
  • “I have many obstacles — how do I deal with the issues that have held me back in the past because I really want this and am really scared I may find out I don’t have what it takes?”

Quiet confidence training and my weekly calls is what you’ll use. I can tell you everyone feels nervous about whether they are good enough to get to their goals.
If you want to learn a craft BY DOING, on set… if you are fascinated by what happens on a film set… if you dream of a different live than you have today and want to expand who you are and shed your limiting beliefs, this is the perfect avenue to grow into the person you want to be. The A-list Work-Study program and the bonus trainings are delivered in multimedia format. The material is viewable across any laptop or mobile device. The mastermind keeps you involved and learning… and the weekly calls are how you get motivated, get specific questions clear in your mind, and get ready for each week with energy and focus.

Plus, if you know you’re certain you want to be a film professional, there’s no better environment to put yourself in than A-list Work-Study where you are learning on PROFESSIONAL film sets.

I’ve got actors, writers, producers, directors, stunt people, VO artists, sound mixers, costume designers, production designer, set dressers, and more who have used Work-Study to get connected for their crafts.

No matter what you want to do, you must understand how to build experience, represent yourself, build connections, get people referring you and passing your name around in the production offices.

Regardless of what you want to do, today’s film industry demands that you learn how to build trust and create meaningful connections with other professionals and your love of the work IS your calling card. We don’t convince people, we let our own good work and our own connections show we are good to work with. So if you want a real career, A-list is the answer to start and grow it right now in your city.

You can access the content and mastermind 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 your student 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 time, but they can be on Fridays and Mondays too. We may have multiple calls during the week as well if we are covering a certain topic.

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’d like — engage om the mastermind with other A-listers and A-list mentors. Many of our students go through the program as best they can; pause and return to it as their schedule allows.

If you’re not able to carve out that much time at first, don’t worry. 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 work very hard on your own knowledge with A-list as well as on the professional film sets you’ll be on.

Building a career is not a get lucky, “please give me work” event. 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 film industry go on vacation, buy a house, have babies, and have families. 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. In fact, the perfect time is now.

If you love this industry, then you must be hungry to start doing it.

It’s normal to have fear, 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.

The film industry WILL give you a life beyond your dreams… baby steps will turn into big leaps as you see that you are wanted, needed, and have a service that people need on set… and 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 A-list Work-Study, so yes, she is personally invested in your success.

Yes. We’ve always backed our program with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Here’s how it works.

Test drive the first two Modules of A-list for 14 days. If you don’t feel this program is right for you — just email our support team, 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 truly committed to taking massive, consistent action and using the ideas and strategies to create real change.

We devote a tremendous amount of time, energy and human resources into our students in this program, so it’s vital that you’re as committed to taking action as we are to supporting your success.

If You’ve Read This Far, You Owe This To Yourself…

If you’ve read this far, you owe it to yourself to honestly answer these questions:

What if just one concept in A-list Work-Study…

changes the course of your life for the better.

What if just one strategy in A-list Work-Study…

helps you get started on the path working full-time in film doing A-list Work-Study and you never look back.

What if just one technique in A-list Work-Study…

frees up more time, since you are paid more doing freelance work than 9-5 and able to pay down debt?

What impact will that have on your relationships, your confidence, your joy?

What would those changes be worth to you over a lifetime?
$5,000… $20,000… $50,000…or more?

To get unstuck and know you’re getting to your dreams?

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Don’t miss your chance to finally start living the life you’ve been dreaming of.
