MONEY & MOVIES
The mystery solved...
You want to make a movie…but you need money to do that well.
A lot of money!
But where’s it going to come from?
How are you going to get it? You don’t know any billionaires!
How much do you really need anyway?
It can feel totally terrifying and overwhelming just to think about it.
In this 4 day masterclass, I’m going to demystify the money part of making movies.
You’re going to get a whole new unconventional, but totally actionable plan for how to raise finance for your indie film and walk away feeling empowered and clear about how to get the money for your movie.
If you’re a filmmaker feeling thwarted by lack of funds, please join me for this masterclass.

Some feedback from previous masterclasses:
A note from Diane...
So many filmmakers feel like the ONE thing that stands between them and their filmmaking dreams is MONEY.
Or should I say: lack of it?
I felt like that too –
But then I figured the mystery out – and unlocked the magic.
For my first film, I raised $140k – even though I had never been to film school or directed a short before.
That film (Obselidia) premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won two awards.
I believe that no matter where you are or who you know: it’s possible for you to do the same.
In this 4 day masterclass, I’m going to empower you with the real world knowledge to make it happen.
Expect practical strategies, actionable steps to take as well as mindset shifting ideas that will rock your world.
I can’t wait to share these sessions with you.
