Director Biography - Alexandria Lane

Alexandria Lane is a Screenwriter and Director, with a background in Art Direction. A 7th-generation Texan meets a queer modern feminist - Lane’s culturally clashing background leads to character-driven stories that flip western stereotypes, and an unreasonable obsession with outlaw-country karaoke. Lane chooses to exclusively write from a female-gaze, because the world doesn’t see enough of their better half represented. Lane’s dark comedy pilot, ROE V. MAEVE, was selected as a fellow for The Orchard Project 2023, a finalist for the Humanitas New Voices Fellowship and was featured on Coverfly’s Redlist for Top 20 TV Comedies in 2022. Her screenplays have been recognized by the Blacklist, Women in Film, the Sundance Labs, ISA, ScreenCraft, WeScreenplay, Humanitas, Austin Film Festival, the PAGE Awards and Stage 32. Her most recent directing works include festival-favorites A TINDR TRAP, LEATHER DADDY and HOT SHEET MOTEL (Fall 2023).

Director Statement

Hot Sheet Motel is an homage to older southern generations of the LGBTQ+ community who were forced to stay closeted throughout most of their lives. It’s a ‘will-they-wont-they’ slow burn of a tale that begs the question - what is desire? These are the kinds of star crossed lovers you encounter everyday but don’t notice. The temp coworker that walks into your local laundromat. The man from out of town that becomes your new regular. The Mmmm break in routine that could change your life if you let them. Both cowboys know what’s expected of them in their lonely isolated life - but what if for one night, things were different?
