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.

What: masterclass series with Sundance award-winning screenwriter and director Diane Bell

When: Prerecorded lessons can be watched in your schedule

Where: The classes are hosted in a Facebook group – you can tune in from wherever you choose to.

These trainings are for you if:

  • you want to make a movie that can play at the highest level
  • you’re tired of waiting to be greenlit and want a self starting method
  •  you’re not afraid to think outside the box and try an unconventional (but tested) route
  • you’ve got a script that you passionately believe in and KNOW would make a gem of a movie
  • you want to make your movie and have an amazing time doing it

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

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.

"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!"
Jill Orschel
"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!"
Clare McKay
