Meet Jona

Jona and Gal Gadot

I’m Jona Xiao and I booked a studio film and TV show within a few months through my direct connections. And my reps will be the first to tell you that my personal connections help me get more auditions.

And I wouldn’t even call myself a great ‘networker’. I used to think it was sleazy, so I’d hide inside pay to play workshops instead of building connections on my own terms.
 
Those workshops rarely paid off and left me feeling like a real outsider.
 
I know exactly how exhausting it feels to work so hard as an actor, only to be disappointed by the lack of auditions you get. And when the auditions do come, it oftentimes seems like they already know who they want for the role.
As actors, we have more control than we think and I want to teach you exactly what it takes to build your network and do it in a way that’s authentic for you.
 
You won’t believe what opportunities arise when you truly get known by the right people. Which is something any actor can do regardless of your resume, your reps (or lack thereof), or who you’re related to.

I love feeling like my career is really in my OWN hands because of the tools and strategies I’m empowered with. And I’m excited to share these tools with you inside Book TV & Film On Your Own.

Class will run for about 60 minutes plus time for a Q&A at the end.
This is your chance to get direct feedback from Jona.

“My first coffee meeting offered to introduce me to their top contact without me asking; after taking Jona’s advice from the webinar, I was able to set up a coffee meeting with the filmmaker from the festival I was trying to speak with!”
