Meet Jillian Clare, Award-winning Actress Working in Traditional and Digital New Media

Jillian Clare

Jillian Clare, ITVFest Best Actress 2011 Award Winner

Meet Jillian Clare (star and executive producer of the teen series Miss Behave and Haley Ferguson from the Emmy nominated Nickelodeon movie Freak the Freak Out) who has just joined the cast of the feature film, THE KITCHEN.

Jillian has a lot to celebrate this year with her recent nomination in the best actress category at the International Television Festival for her teen series Miss Behave, which was also an Official Selection of the Festival and then winning Best Actress in a Drama at the ITVFest.

Jillian’s new role in THE KITCHEN, which is a comedy about a girl’s ill-fated 30th birthday party, where she plays Nikki – a friendly and flirtatious ditz who has an inner logic that somehow makes sense. Jillian’s on-screen boyfriend is played by Adam Chambers (“Night of  the Living Dead 3D: Re-Animation”) and other cast members include Laura Prepon (“Lay the Favorite,” NBC series “Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea”) and Bryan Greenberg (HBO series “How to Make it in America”).  The film is directed by Ishai Setton (“The Big Bad Swim”), written by Jim Beggarly (“Free Samples”), and produced by Emily Ting (“Family Inc.”).

We’ve talked to Jillian on several occasions after meeting her on the red carpet and we’re excited to see her continue to grow and succeed in both traditional and digital media. We’re also looking forward to seeing what happens in Season Three of her multi-award winning teen drama Miss Behave which is gearing up for filming later this year. Catch it on their site http://www.missbehave.tv

Clare is repped by Greene & Associates and managed by Brandon Talent Management.

Here’s where to go to vote: Mingle Media TV Network

There are many things that helped the finalists get their fans to vote for them… the following list are a few things that everyone who creates content for the web should be doing – not just for competitions but for views / audience and community building:

Twitter:

  • Follow people back (you don’t have to follow MLM, #TeamFollowBack or other “self-proclaimed Social Media Experts but definitely industry people)
  • Thank people for following you, introduce yourself, start a convo
  • ReTWEET people who promote you (there’s nothing worse than having someone tweet your promo to vote for you and you don’t thank them or RETWEET the message in honor of them)
  • Support your fellow creator – RETWEET their series announcements
  • Links matter – tweet YOUR series link in your tweets – use a shortener to get it all in 140 characters
Facebook:
  • Post your episodes, community activities (other creators) and info related to the industry on your page – it’s not all about you, sharing is caring
  • Link to your content on other sites
  • Embed videos so people can watch while on Facebook
  • LIKE other creator’s pages – help them get the word out and they will respond in kind
Blog Posts:
  • Start a blog and write a post a week telling your fan base what you’re doing
  • Embed an episode and tell the back story about the episode or interesting fact
  • Ask your fans what they liked or didn’t like about it
YouTube
  • Use META TAGS, keywords to keep your content together on the page
  • YouTube will bring up other similar content from other people if you don’t
  • Keep your titles uniform and add a description with links back to your site, twitter, facebook so people can find you
  • Use annotations and create hotspots with links as a call to action
If you are creating for the Interwebs and are NOT building fans or community, ask yourself why not…. are you doing the above? If you are and still not getting anywhere… it’s time to ask a professional how to change things up for you.
