Dianna Ippolito


Dianna Marianna Ippolito was born in Southern California and began traveling the world at the age of 19. In between travels, Dianna studied photography, including a stint at San Francisco’s Academy of Art, and the Art Center of Design. After a permanent move to Los Angeles, Dianna became involved in the world of fashion and celebrity photography, taking on freelance assignments with various newspapers and local magazines.

Work experience at the American Film Institute and Director’s Guild sparked Dianna’s interest in screenwriting, and in 2014 signed on to co-produce and write for the television action series SAF3, filmed in South Africa. She has continued to produce and direct award-winning film projects, including her debut feature, a psychological thriller available on Amazon, entitled Close Your Eyes. Most recently she wrote/directed and produced an award-winning 1920s web series Stay, also streaming on Amazon.

Currently, her holiday film Mistletoe Connection which she co-wrote with Marie Jones, is scheduled to go into production at Larry Levin Productions.
