SCREENWRITING

from the heart

So often the art of screenwriting is reduced to a series of do’s and don’ts, of rules and formulas.

But the truth is, ticking all the boxes and getting the formatting right is not going to create a great screenplay.

If you want to write something that really has the chance of standing out – you have to do something different.

You have to tap into the story that is in your heart and become clear channel for what is coming through.

This takes deep faith and courage.

In this free 3 day masterclass, we’re going to go on a journey to help you break through to the heart of your work.  

Whether you are just starting your journey as a screenwriter or are already a seasoned pro, you’re going to find this experience rich and profoundly inspiring.

If you’re ready to drop the struggle and start enjoying your artistic journey as you climb to ever higher heights, join me for this free LIVE masterclass.

Some feedback from previous masterclasses:

“I couldn’t be a bigger fan of Diane and her masterclasses! Both Operation Greenlight and The Next Level have been incredible sources of help, wisdom and insight for me. Not least because Diane’s masterclasses are not just about the creative/filmmaking/screenwriting life and practical process, but crucially focus on the ‘inner work’ - which, like Diane, I fundamentally feel we need to do in order to achieve our goals and dreams. The classes are honestly invaluable – and Diane’s thoughtfulness, warmth and generosity of spirit shine through everything she says and teaches.”
Andrea Mann
“Acclaimed screenwriter and revered mentor Diane Bell guides her students on a magical journey of self discovery, empowerment and personal transformation with  a profound sense of  spiritual growth. Sprinkled with a delightful sense of wit and wisdom Bell shares her methods and experience in overcoming life‘s challenges, how to live a successful, financially free, creative life, filled with limitless potential where dreams really do come true. Powerful and provocative.”
Maire Tashjian
“I have taken screenwriting courses from a number of leaders in the industry and was quite satisfied with a few. None come close to the wonderful experience of classes from Diane Bell and her Shoot From The Heart Society. Diane’s classes and means of teaching are thought provoking and inspiring. Capturing your attention for the entire time, you are propelled forward, excited to put forward what you learned. There is no other teacher or mentor that reaches this height in my estimation. If you have the opportunity to join one of her free Master Class sessions and don’t participate, you are cheating yourself of the best thing you can do for yourself or your writing. Diane is the crème de la crème.”

A note from Diane...

Diane Bell - Filmmaker and Screenwriter

Have you ever wondered why some scripts stand out, capturing attention, getting made?

What makes them different from the thousands of  scripts that don’t stand out?  That don’t sell?

The fact is: thousands of perfectly decent, well written scripts will be passed over this year…as they are every year.

I don’t think this is a matter of luck.

I think the ones that stand out have a quality that’s hard to quantify, difficult to pin down.

They have a life to them that can’t be denied.   

I call it the elusive H Factor …  heart.

(And yes, this is true even if we’re talking about horror movies.)

In this 3 day masterclass, we’re going to explore what it means to write from your heart so that your work comes to hypnotic life.  

I’m going to share with you how to go deep with your work, how to break through the surface level  and really let your screenwriting breathe and shine.

I can’t wait to share these sessions with you.

xo Diane

MORE FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS MASTERCLASSES:

"I simply can’t get enough of Diane Bell’s inspired wisdom! I signed up for both Operation Green Light and Next Level, back to back. If you are a creative individual (I think we all are), you know the ups and downs of this life. Diane combines a contagious and enthusiastic positivity with a down-to-earth practical approach that is relatable and universal no matter what your discipline. Whether it’s just one class, or everything she has to offer, to let Diane Bell in your life will be a game changer for your creative game!"

"Truth. That’s what Diane Bell’s masterclass is all about. You will be listening to Diane’s lecture and you’ll connect with something she says. A truth that you once ignored. A path you didn’t travel, but you wished you did. Or a path you started down but turned back. Diane will motivate you to continue that journey. The truth Diane provides will help you complete your screenplay or finish your first feature film. Diane is a master motivator; the masterclass is definitely worth it."

"Diane Bell is an amazing talent who's decided to share her wealth of wisdom with aspiring filmmakers. Anyone looking to get their next project off the ground should be checking out all of Diane's wonderful online content. She's brilliant, kind, passionate, and always inspiring.”
Jack Stranger
"Diane's masterclasses are just that. This lady reaches way beyond the realm of the obvious. In Operation Greenlight there was enough info in there that might take you a year to access on a Psychologist couch. Diane shoots from the heart and it goes straight to the heart. I think I could say without fear of contradiction that she is as real as it gets. Her passion is to share her knowledge knowhow and the wealth of having walked the walk, speaks volumes. These masterclasses and courses are no nonsense and heart driven.Thank you Diane - keep shining!"
