After making his first short-film out of passion in 2005 at the age of 19, Nils Lane then devoted himself to his engineering studies and his professional career.
Fifteen years later, he decides to immerse himself entirely in the cinematographic universe he has liked so much since his earliest childhood. A multitasking man, he takes care of the screenwriting, the directing and all the other stages of his self-financed productions.
He likes to write and direct his films with one thing in mind "Nothing is what it seems". Indeed, there is one point where he makes no concessions : the story. This is the foundation for any movie and for him, if it is badly prepared, it will be felt throughout the rest of the film. This is why he spends a lot of time on the writing and especially on the part where he will surprise the viewers. This leads him to enjoy the science fiction and fantasy genres but he enjoys amazing the audience in drama or thriller as well.
Living in one of the most beautiful cities of the world, Paris, he thrives on its film sets to beautify his fictions. Yet, a good story and beautiful decors are not enough for Nils Lane. The acting is the part that gives life to his stories and he can be demanding with his cast. But one of the parts where he is the most uncompromising is without contest the post-production. Even if he is still a beginner at it, editing, sound mixing, color grading and all the other post-production parts are completely and strictly managed end to end by him.
His goal is to one day be the screenwriter and director of a produced feature-length motion picture. In the meantime, he is preparing many short films projects (drama, thriller and sci-fi) but also a web series about social and emotional relationships in our generation.

When I was a kid I used to play home movie making, I have always been a huge fan of cinema, photography and reading. Through reading I was able to develop a great imagination, in addition to having many references. In my teens, I often skipped class to go to the movies (I keep smiling when I remember those days). My first real approach to cinema as a director was in a fiction workshop organized in Balmaceda 1215 in Santiago de Chile. Later I took different acting and film courses, which led me to work for many years as a producer, consequently, directing films was a dream that I had to postpone for a few years.
Until, in collaboration with Ignacio Verdugo, we founded the production company Go.Films, where my first short film was "Free Fall." This short film starred Italo Spotorno, a very important actor in my works. «Free Fall» It was a great experience that allowed me to quickly approach the world of cinema to want to continue investigating this language with the short films Submerged, Invisible, and currently working on the pre-production of my first feature film ASEDIO, where he works as a producer and director of the project with Italo Spotorno as Actor and Ignacio Verdugo in the production. n.
