Jayne Nicoletti: Actress & Director

My NativeAdVantage:

Bio:

Jayne Nicoletti was born in the Bronx, New York to a Polish father, a holocaust survivor, and an Israeli mother. In her teens, Jayne's love of music inspired her to become a vocalist, performing with local bands in and around New York City.  In her 20's an interest in beauty led her to become a licensed cosmetologist, where she worked on numerous photo shoots as a make-up artist and hair stylist. She soon transitioned to being in front of the camera as a commercial print model featured in magazines, web advertisements, a DVD cover, and licensing materials, as well as acting in television commercials. Most recently, Jayne tried her hand at writing and directing. Her first short, Loss, currently has been accepted into 2 film festivals.

Jayne guest-starred in a segment of What Would You Do  on The Dr. Oz Show. She had roles in Mysteries At The Museum and Celebrity Ghost Stories.  In addition, she had roles in Psychotic Break (a semi-finalist in the Screencraft Short Screenplay Competition) and This Side Of Heaven, a full-length film that explores the perils of lower Manhattan gentrification. She co-starred in web segments produced by Elite Daily and AOL What To Watch, and hosted The Dog Show.  Along with having her own You Tube channel of original content, Jayne is the official monthly video commentator for StepMom Magazine.

Jayne works in the music industry, in which she has over 20 years experience. As an animal lover she spends most of her free time advocating for those who do not have a voice of their own: the homeless, neglected, and abused animals of New York. She performs home visits to interview potential pet parents, volunteers at numerous pet adoption events and donates a large portion of her earnings to various rescue organizations.

What do I do best?

I TRY TO BE COMPASSIONATE. I ALWAYS TRY TO PUT MYSELF IN ANOTHER’S SHOES. I THINK THAT HELPS ME BE A BETTER ACTOR AND WRITER.    

What makes me the best version of myself?

I WILL PUSH MYSELF TO THE LIMIT WHEN I HAVE A GOAL IN MIND.

What are my aspirations?

I WANT TO HELP SEE IN MY LIFETIME A NO KILL NATION (ANIMAL SHELTERS).

My Biggest Success?

HAVING A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH MY STEPDAUGHTERS. I ALSO AM SO HAPPY I GOT TO GET DOGS ADOPTED BY VOLUNTEERING WITH RESCUES DOING HOME VISITS. I AM ALSO PROUD IN THAT I MADE A SHORT FILM THAT GOT ACCEPTED INTO FILM FESTIVALS.

My Most Challenging Moment?

LOSING BOTH MY PARENTS TO CANCER

My Motto?

AN OLD BOSS ONCE SAID: “S&^T, WIPE, AND MOVE ON…"

My Favorite People/Role Models?

STEVIE NICKS. SHE DRESSED HERSELF, WROTE HER OWN SONGS, AND IS STILL SUCCESSFUL AT 69!

MY DAD BECAUSE DESPITE BEING A HOLOCAUST SRUVIVOR, HE WAS NEVER BITTER.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

THE NORTH FORK, LONG ISLAND (NY). I LOVE THIS LITTLE OASIS OF WINE COUNTRY SO MUCH, I AM MOVING THERE!

My Favorite Products/Objects?

MY CELLPHONE AND TWEEZERS. MY CELLPHONE DOES IT ALL, EXCEPT GET RID OF MIDDLE AGED EXCESS HAIR!

My Current Passions?

I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT WORKING ON MY SECOND SHORT WITH TWO WONDERFUL ACTORS AND A GREAT CREW!

My NativeAdVice:

How did you get into the industry?

I MET A MODEL WHILE DOING MAKE UP FOR PHOTO SHOOTS AND SHE SUGGESTED I TRY COMMERCIAL PRINT MODELING. I DID AND STARTED TO MAKE A SECOND INCOME OF IT. THAT LED ME TO ACTING WHICH LEAD ME TO WRITING AND DIRECTING.

Any emerging industry trends?

WOMEN ARE STARTING TO HAVE THEIR VOICES HEARD AS ACTORS AND DIRECTORS.

Any industry opportunities or challenges?

THERE ARE SO MANY MORE OPPORTUNITIES NOW TO HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD. I MADE MY FIRST SHORT FILM ON A SAMSUNG GALAXY S6 EDGE WITH A 50 DOLLAR LIGHTING KIT. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS NOW WITH MANY PLATFORMS TO SHOWCASE YOUR WORK.

Inspiration for the business idea, and your vision for the Business?

WHEN THINGS AREN’T HAPPENING FOR YOU, YOU MUST GO OUT THERE AND CREATE IT YOURSELF. I WASN’T GETTING THE ROLES I WANTED DUE TO MY AGE AND NOT TYPICAL “AMERICAN” LOOK. SO I WENT TO THE ONE PERSON WHO WOULDN’T SAY NO…ME!

What's next for the Business in the near future?

I THINK THERE WILL BE MORE AND MORE PLATFORMS SUCH AS NETFLIX, HULU, YOU TUBE, ETC. THE WAY WE WATCH TV WILL DEFINITLEY CHANGE AND EVOLVE.

Your key initiatives for the success of the Business?

CROWDFUNDING IS DEFINITELY A WAY TO HELP SMALLER CREATORS.

Your most difficult moment at the Business? (and what did you learn?)

SOMETIMES AGE IS A DIFFICULT THING AS MOST ROLES ARE FOR PEOPLE UNDER 40. IT MADE ME REALIZE MOST PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE IRRELEVANT AFTER THAT AGE WHEN YOU HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO OFFER.

Ideal experience for a customer/client?

IF I CAN HELP JUST ONE PERSON FEEL NOT ALONE IN THEIR EXPERIENCE, THEN I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED MY GOAL. IF I MOVE JUST ONE PERSON, IT WILL BE WORTH IT!

How do you motivate others?

I TRY TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE AND OFFER ADVICE. ONE ADVANTAGE OF BEING AARP WORTHY!

Career advice to those in your industry?

NO EXCUSES. TIRED? DAY JOB? KIDS? THOSE ARE EXCUSES. PEOPLE HAVE MADE IT WITH MORE OBSTACLES.
