Lane is an Emmy award-winning SFX artist and animator, having worked on prominent Hollywood productions for more than 15 years. He graduated the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. While there, he studied studio art including Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture, with a concentration on Film & Animation. 

While still in school, Kevin began working for the clay animation studio Olive Jar Animation. Known for their quirky humor and aggressive visual style, Kevin was a quick fit, and was promoted to assistant art director. Most notable during this time was his work on many of the MTV and Nickelodeon logo bumpers which were a constant feature of these popular cable networks.

In 1990 Kevin co-founded Papercut Productions. Catering to a local market of commercial, educational and industrial media, Kevin worked with many highly regarded animators including Derek Lamb (the one time head of the Canadian Film Board and a Harvard professor), and his then wife, Janet Perlman.

In 1999 Lane made the move to California. Netter Digital was in production on two full CG kid shows: "Max Steel" and "Dan Dare Pilot of the Future", and Kevin was hired to work on both. Lane soon distinguished himself as someone who could produce quality work at a television pace. Kevin then moved to the pioneering effects company Area 51, where he worked on the SyFy Channel production of Frank Herbert's Dune, for which he won an Emmy for visual effects.

After the completion of Dune, Kevin moved to Unified Film Organization, where he was offered his first Team Lead position on a broadcast movie for the SyFy Channel. In 2005, Kevin was invited to help out with a short animated film being produced at and for JPL (The Jet Propulsion Laboratory). A long time fan of the space program, Kevin jumped at the chance and has been working with JPL ever since creating short films and visualizations of various space missions for JPL as well as for NASA's outreach program.
