The Stand-Out System:
The 2 Tools I Used to Book the Lead in a Film Right in the Middle of the Strike
With Jona Xiao
Just when we were recovering from the Pandemic, we got hit with a double strike. WARNING: This workshop is not just going to pump sunshine up your butt. I understand it’s frustrating right now, and a lot of actors are quitting. That’s not you, and that’s not me.
So, during this class, you’re going to learn where you can take control to see results and walk away with:
1) Understanding Gold Medal Role philosophy that guaranteed me a callback. You’ll learn how to apply this to your own brand and I’ll even share the BTS of my self tape
2) A free 10-minute tool I used to build a bigger social following. One big reason I got the offer came down to my social media presence, which didn’t happen by accident. I’ll show EXACTLY what I did to kickstart that growth when no one knew who I was.
3) Bonus! Headshots that Book. The super strategic earned our student, Que M, $71k from one booking
Before you grab a spot for this class, you need to know that I’m not going waste your time by pretending we aren’t in the middle of a strike. Times feel tough for many of us.
BUT YOU ARE NOT AN ACTOR WHO WILL SIMPLY SIT AND WAIT UNTIL THE STRIKE IS OVER. NEITHER AM I. NO. LET’S TAKE CONTROL WHERE WE CAN SO YOU CAN GAIN MOMENTUM AND BE AHEAD OF THE CURVE WHEN THINGS DO FINALLY GET BACK TO NORMAL. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE FOR DIRECT FEEDBACK FROM JONA.
Is Your Brand Hurting You?
When I would ask my reps why I wasn’t getting many auditions, they would suggest I take new headshots. So I kept doing that. And sometimes I would see an uptick in my auditions, only to feel crushed that I was barely getting callbacks or bookings.
I learned the hard way that branding is a comprehensive process. Just going around and asking your friends how they “see you” or paying someone to “typecast” you doesn’t cut it.
After I applied the Standout System to my own career, I finally broke into TV and since then, I’ve booked 40+ TV + Film credits.
So, I’m excited to introduce you to the Standout System so you can understand all the moving parts to a bookable brand to get on the short list.
Is it okay to be working during the strike?
In short…YES! There’s lots of commercial, VO, theater, unstruck work and 200+ interim agreements allowing actors to work on TV and film projects.
“The interim agreement provides empirical proof that the terms that we have put on the table with the AMPTP are not only realistic, but are actually desirable and usable by producers in this industry,” SAG-AFTRA executive director and chief negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland said.
