Meet the Fearless
Friends In Film Team
Our tight-knit team is dedicated to helping actors and filmmakers reach their goals in the industry where everything is word-of-mouth. Started as a Film School alternative, Friends In Film created the A-list methods to ignore everything except what gets people in demand and working on paid professional sets.
The fearless leader, Janet knows how to break into the industry from the outside because she did it herself with no prior film experience or set knowledge. She refuses to let the Universe tell her to back down on any endeavor she sets her heart to. Her top priority is getting fantastic people inside the film industry, on set, doing what they love and having the greatest time.
Joe is Janet’s Mountain Man. He has climbed Mount Denali, was a kayak instructor and trip leader, and keeps things running smoothly behind-the-scenes at Friends In Film. On top of having a warm and gentle soul, Joe is known as the de facto father figure within the Friends In Film team and community.
Hanlu is Friends In Film’s Creative Strategist. She creates graphics, copy, and visual systems in high hopes they will deconstruct the cryptic nature of the film industry for everyone. She was FIF’s official cat-petter, much to their chagrin… but now, much to the cats’ delight, she lives and works in Denver. Her Instagram accounts (filled with all things she deems lovely) are @hanludoyle and @hdartspace.
Nycole is the Director of Social Media and Happiness at Friends In Film. She’s also who you’ll email with the most before your mentorship with Janet. Nycole is a die-hard foodie, shoe lover, and former Music & TV industry Marketing professional and Publicist, who also moonlights as a mom of three beautiful daughters and wife of a charming Digital Strategist. After a 15-year stint in NYC, she brought the East Coast hustle to California’s laid back shores and is loving every minute of it.
