Who better to make a biopic about Boston rocker Robin Lane than one of her former bandmates? Tim Jackson, an assistant professor at the New England Institute of Art and the drummer in Lane’s former band, the Chartbusters, is hard at work on a movie called “A Woman’s Voice: The Robin Lane Story.’’ Jackson is raising money on Kickstarter.com for the film, which will trace Lane’s life from her adolescence in LA’s canyons in the ’60s, through her marriage to Police guitarist Andy Summers, to her success in the ’80s with the Chartbusters, and the music therapy workshops she now leads for abused women.
