Lowell was born and raised in Monterey, California. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
He earned a degree in Cinema-Television and Public Relations at the University of Southern California.
An avid user of Super 8 film stock, Lowell has been a regular participant in Flicker’s Attack of the 50 Foot Reels – a festival that forces filmmakers to create short films using only one roll of Super 8 film, edited entirely in-camera. He recently shot the music video for “Memphis” by Marcy Playground entirely on Super 8.
Lowell’s documentary short “Have You Seen Axl Rose?” has screened at international festivals and microcinemas all over Europe, Australia, Canada, and the U.S. It has received dozens of audience choice awards and was picked as one of the “Best Of” shorts at the 2003 Silverlake Film Festival held in Los Angeles.
His video for Greg Kurstin’s (The Bird and the Bee) project Action Figure Party placed in the Top 3 at the 1st Annual Turkey Shoot Music Video Festival.
