Professional Film Director and NVQ Qualified Film Acting Coach Paul J Lane has had a unique journey in film. Transforming from 15 years experience in music video, his work lingers in stylisation and imagery of story telling which often causes multiple doses of cinematic and musical stimuli.

He believes that the true craft of film making is capturing the performances of each character driven by the true connoisseurs of film notably known as "The Actors."

 

Paul and his team have made 3 features and 18 short films and has won awards  in directing, script writing, cinematography  and acting. He personally has a tally of 23 Awards in film making (19 IMDb Awards / 4 External Film Festival Awards and 8 IMDb Nominations) and there are 14 awards and 7 nominations for his educational programme clients.
