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 3 session 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 masterclass.

Some feedback from previous masterclasses:
A note from Diane...
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.
