    Ep #68: The Calling Card Film

    Ep #68: The Calling Card Film

    Have you heard of the calling card film?  It's the idea that you make a micro budget film that acts as a calling card to the powers that be, so that you can climb the ladder of filmmaking success.   But what if you make a good film...and no one pays attention?

    In this episode, I dissect the idea of the calling card film and explore what we should really be aiming for when we commit to making a micro budget indie film.

    Ep #64: The Rise of the Female Artist

    Ep #64: The Rise of the Female Artist

    Women are still dramatically under-represented in the film world. It's easy to look outside of us at the systemic injustices (which are real) but in this episode I invite the women amongst us to look inside. When we understand our deep coding - not just from our lives being born into a patriarchy, but our genetic heritage as women who are daughters of generations of suppressed voices - we can start to create a healing and transformation that will change the world.To sign up for the free masterclass Female Artist Rising ---> www.dianebell.com/rising

Write with your heart

I love listening to Diane’s podcast and taking her free lessons on Facebook. I really recommend it to anybody starting to write or struggling with one’s screenplay. She’s a very nice, wise and fun guide to listen to.

Showing up!

Diane is sharing absolute gems. I’m a director in Los Angeles with many projects under my belt and struggling with a screenplay I can see in my mind but am having a challenge putting to paper. The encouraging, gentle guidance Diane brings to the game is invaluable. These are lessons you will keep and fold into all of your creative endeavors.
