HERE’S JANE, 12min, USA, Comedy
Directed by JoLane Lentz
Jane, a free spirit in her mid 30’s, working as a sales girl in the mall at Forever 21, comes up with a scheming plan on how to avoid being evicted from her dumpy apartment she shares with her best friend Heather. Who’s also in her mid 30’s, waiting tables at Hooters while in her 9th year of community college.
Filmmaking is my passion and I enjoyed the entire process of creating Here’s Jane. From conception of the idea, to writing the script and casting the roles, to the actual process of filming. I grew up watching “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson in my Grandparents living room and knew from a very young age that I wanted to be involved in the entertainment industry making people laugh. I began my career as an Actress playing a number of different roles, but always held a divine interest for comedy. I quickly realized that comedic roles for women were not easy to come by, so I decided to write something for myself and
In 2014, I created Here’s Jane. I always knew that I would end up Directing one day, with my creative eye and experience as a Producer, so when I finished writing Here’s Jane, I knew that I was the best person to Direct it. Being my first Directorial project, as well as playing the lead character, I knew I would need another set of eyes while I was in front of the camera. So, I asked my good friend Bobby Hewitt to help me Co-Direct. Bobby and I have been friends for many years and have worked on a few projects together, making me confident that he would be the perfect fit to help carry out my creative vision. With his years of experience as a Director of Photography, Here’s Jane turned out better than I had envisioned.
