Tane McClure is a lifelong entertainment industry alumni with many Film, Television, and Music credits to her name. As a singer, Tane’s road to success has been paved with many names including: Tane Cain: RCA Recording artist: Top 40 single “Holding On” and Tahnee Cain with her band “Tryanglz” for the original “Terminator” soundtrack. While wearing many hats in her road to success, from model, singer, actress, producer, director, and accomplished editor, Tane has been honored with award winning and nominated productions including the National Journalism Award for the documentary, “Love Betty White” The Betty White Story, and the nominated “Just Call Me Hef” The Hugh Hefner Story, as well as the Emmy Nominated “Station Fires” for Fox News Television and her “Best Fantasy Feature” award winning film “Trance” which was honored in the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival.

Tane McClure is the daughter of actor Doug McClure, who is best known as “Trampas” from the western series “The Virginian”. Tane became an actress at an early age playing the part of an orphan in “The Virginian” episode “Small Parades”. Tane has since acted in over 50 films including playing Reese Witherspoon’s mom in “Legally Blonde”, and she has produced, directed, and edited over 100 hours of content for many major companies and networks around the world.

Tane’s mother, Faye Brash, who is of Hawaiian/Polynesian decent, was a singer, and her grandmother, Mae Brash was also a gifted Opera singer. From an early age, Tane was inspired by her Hawaiian heritage and their love of music.

With her father Doug McClure an actor and her mother a singer… Music, Film and Television came together for Tane in many of her aspirations.

Director Statement

As an independent film director, I feel that often, the most interesting scenes in a film include the unexpected things, the moments that were never actually specifically written in the script. When an actor takes a beat or two longer to get his emotions or thoughts together while camera is rolling, but the scene has not technically begun. Sometimes those quiet moments are the most honest and fresh. He is not “acting”, he is simply “feeling” and building his emotions, and THAT to me is magic on film. When we see a character literally coming to life.I had that vision in mind for my short film “Rockstar”, our lead actor Jared Scott, barely speaks a single line in the film, but through his eyes and his music we understand him, and we can feel what he is feeling. “RockStar” is about a teenager who dreams of becoming a rock-star, the challenges he faces in his turbulent home life, and how music makes him feel. I was lucky to have a very talented DP, Sandy Stenzel, to help capture that emotion on film. "Rockstar", reminds us that often we need to believe in ourselves when no one else will, and to not be afraid to dream big! Directing this short film is close to my heart, since I once walked that exciting yet uneasy path of a rock-star. (I was a RCA recording artist under the name Tane Cain AKA Tahnee Cain and Tryanglz).“Rockstar” is a film about “courage”, to believe in yourself when no one else seems to!I hope to enlighten and encourage the “ROCKSTAR” in all of us!
