Hi, I’m Sparkman!
Who are the FIF MENTORS?
The FIF MENTORS have been through the FIF Craft Certification program, and now are FULL time in the film industry. They are always working on set.
FIF Mentor Sparkman completed the FIF Craft Certification program, and is now dominating the film industry. Before she did the mentorship program, she was trying to get into the film industry, just like you!
The FIF Mentors are popping in to help you and answer questions, but keep in mind, we are doing this for FREE. We are on 14 hour/day shoots ourselves during this training so we will help you when we can.

MY LIFE BEFORE THE FIF CRAFT CERTIFICATION PROGRAM:
When I found Friends in Film, I had just gotten fired as a cocktail waitress. I was pursuing acting but I didn’t have a manager. I was getting frustrated that I wasn’t getting anywhere. I did not know a single professional filmmaker. I was afraid of being in my thirties and still being a waitress and not achieving my dreams. It wasn’t a great lifestyle at all.
MY LIFE NOW!
Eight months later and I worked as a director’s assistant on a $40 million New Line Cinema film with Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth. I worked as a staff PA on season 5 of The Blacklist (NBC’s number one hit TV show). I worked on Orange is the New Black and Gotham. Now I’m on a first name basis with all these celebrities. My life has completely changed. I really don’t think I’d be able to come as far as I did if it wasn’t for Friends in Film.
