Director Biography - Diana Savone

Diana Savone was born in Trenton, Michigan, and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, by immigrant parents, her mother from Venezuela and her father from Italy.

She moved to Los Angeles to pursue fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. After graduating, Diana worked in the costume departments of film and television productions in almost every genre; from game shows like “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader,” to soap operas like “Days of Our Lives,” to HBO Max’s “The Flight Attendant.” But it wasn’t until she watched Jeff Bridges on the set of the independent film “The Open Road” that she decided to pursue acting.

She studied acting at Playhouse West, where she took her first writing class. Encouraged to add comedy to her repertoire, she also graduated from the Second City, where she wrote and performed sketches. She produced and starred in a Funny or Die staff pick short called “The Wedding Planners.” While completing the Core Track at The Groundlings school, she discovered her love of writing comedy.

With her sister Rosanna, she co-wrote a solo show called “Italian AF.” In it, Diana performed six original characters ranging from an eight-year-old girl to an 86-year-old grandmother. The show debuted at The Whitefire Theatre’s SOLOFEST. Diana and Rosanna also co-wrote the historical fiction novel “Giacomo’s Daughter.”

Diana wrote, produced, and starred in her directorial debut, a dark comedy short film called “Prophet.” She raised money by crowdfunding and was awarded a grant through Seed&Spark’s Patrons Circle. The film deals with an issue close to Diana’s heart, the problems of healthcare in our modern world.

Director Statement

My film "Prophet" deals with an issue close to my heart, the problems of healthcare in our modern world. But I also want to deliver this information in an entertaining way by making people think while they laugh at the absurdities and serious issues with our healthcare system—both its mainstream failures and the unregulated wild west of alternative medicine.
