Filmmaker.

Lane is currently pursuing film as a means of unifying their passion for both directing and writing stories. They are dedicated to putting diverse, personal, character-driven stories onscreen.

Addict Named Hal

When young, privileged Amy is sent unwillingly to a recovery house by her mom, the connections that she makes with everyone who lives there - including Hal, a recently incarcerated heroin addict - have intense consequences. This film explores the everyday struggles, joys, and horrors of getting clean.

Lane and the team recently closed a successful $22,000 Kickstarter campaign to fund principal photography for the feature film, which will shoot in Austin, TX in January 2020.

Queer Porn Stories is an anthology of 7 short films about queer experiences of porn. These films explore self-discovery, trauma, oppression, joy, connection, and more. Director Lane Michael Stanley commissioned screenplays from writers across the LGBT+ spectrum to show the vast diversity in queer stories of pornography and sexuality.

 

Other Projects

Lane is currently working on short and feature screenplays for “How To Be Everyone At Once,” the story of two non-binary transgender performance artists navigating their radical queer spaces alongside their home and work lives.

Lane’s first short film was "Welcome Baby Anderson." On the day of their (soon-to-be) adopted baby's birth, Susan anxiously passes the time by making a home video, roping her reluctant wife Grace and niece Mar into the process.

Lane is also working on a screenplay called Bachelor, CO, a Western about a trans man and his family in a gender-segregated mining town.

Lane is in post-production for two short films that shot in November 2018. “After You” follows Raf and Samy as Raf makes the decision of whether to move to New York to pursue artistic opportunities. “Marigolds” tells the story of Rosa coming out to her father Pedro, through various hijinks and misunderstandings at her Halloween party.
