Watch this video if you’re concerned about transitioning into the freelance film industry. It’s an off-the-cuff example on how to have financial and time freedom, while maintaining film connections.
Watch this video if you want to ditch your current job and make a living working on TV shows. (and feature films like First Man with Ryan Gosling). It’s an impromptu inside look on how to break in professionally. It’s from a broadcast from one of our A-lister parties in my backyard.
How you get film work is by telling people about yourself, right? Wrong. This video is from one of our conference calls where I’m talking to A-lister Goran. He explains Friends in Film’s counterintuitive approach to getting referred work and how he made $7-8,000 from one connection.
Here’s a cool example of how to use non-union work to get acting, DP, writing, and other craft jobs.
Here’s a quick training on what you need to do, if you want to get professional acting roles. No charge and nothing to do, but learn what to do. Enjoy!
When I started in the film industry, I’d write these long emails trying to convince people I’d be a good candidate for them to hire. You probably already know that’s NOT the way to do it. It seemed like the film biz was a closed shop. I’d reach out and I’d hear nothing. If I DID hear something back, it would lead to…nothing. Well, part of why I am so good at helping people now, is because I screwed up a lot… In this video, I tell you how to get professionals to respond to you…and I reveal the one thing you need to keep in mind when you write that email. This is very important to know. Send a bad email and you can get blacklisted.
Making a good impression. On one hand, if you want to do a good job, you should automatically make a good impression. On the other hand, it’s possible to turn people off without knowing it. I just shot this call with A-lister Goran, show shares what he wished he had paid attention to.
I just shot this brand new tutorial that show you how to get consistent work… even if you’re starting from scratch. I’ve laid it out in 3 steps. 1. You ALWAYS want to get connected to people on set through working alongside them. 2. You can get paid as you learn, and work with these people. 3. You NEVER want to ask people for help. You want to open these doors through wanting to learn. In this video, I walk you through what to do. Nothing to sign up for.
This is how you can tell a scam. If you’re not aware, you can get hurt big time. It can set you back years! In this short video, I show you what they are … and more importantly …show you how to avoid them.
