mentorship students!

FOR FILMMAKERS & ACTORS: The struggle is NOT REAL!

Patrick did everything to get people to notice his work. He applied to postings, emailed his resume, and called people. It was going too slow!

Film school or this program?

How quickly can you become a Production Designer?

How quickly can you leave your job?

Ashley didn’t know how to get into the film industry. She thought her job at the news station would lead somewhere.

Now, with the mentorship program, she is a Production Manager and HIRING Production Assistants. Yes, she is one of those people you want to make a connection with! ; – ) She’s that fast and that’s what happens when you do the mentorship program!

How to move to LA with a job already in hand, possibly with America’s Top Model?

Racheal is in Portland. She used the mentorship program to quit her job as a waitress at Red Robin and go full time into film. She is currently working on the TV show Librarians. Her next gig is America’s Top Model.

FOR EVERYBODY: Why it doesn’t work to look for postings to get on big movies.

Alicia saw a posting for a big movie in town. She applied but got turned down.

Then, she did it the FIF way, and got “brought in” as Camera dept! She worked that entire movie, and paid off the ENTIRE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM in only 2 months. (And she didn’t even go to film school and know how to work a camera!) It’s not WHAT you know, it’s WHO you know… and you learn that in this program.
