Lost and stranded, a woman regains her purpose and inspiration after making a very surprising discovery.
Finding the right location was one of Jane’s biggest challenges. The title character needed to be completely isolated in order make her sense of desperation believable.
After many days of wandering through the desert, we found it. The old Trona Road about a half hour outside Ridgecrest, California. The train crossing perfectly symbolized the junction at which Jane finds herself in life.
One of the project’s highlights was my collaboration with composer Dean Grinsfelder on Jane’s score. The music is the perfect complement to the film’s imagery.
Festivals & Awards: Jane screened at nineteen U.S. and European film festivals. The film took first prize at the Rhode Island International Film Festival and Best Cinematography honors at the da Vinci Days Film Festival. Jane has also screened on European television.
