The unrelenting drive and expansive vision that Lowell brought to my first feature was utterly transporting. We set out to make a creatively radical film in just seven paltry days, and despite near unmanageable financial and time constraints, Lowell pursued my creative goals with an intensity that at times surpassed even my own. He is a fierce compatriot — always game, always focused, always ready to pivot, innovate, and challenge both me and the rest of my team. I cannot imagine ever making a film without him.
I love Lowell. I love him. He’s like family to me at this point, having shot tens, literally tens (two tens + four and counting) of commercials for my company. He’s the cousin you can’t wait to see at every family gathering, and the classmate you hope gets picked for your study group. Because he has one of the more rare qualities in our industry: an unendingly positive spirit coupled with an expert craftsman’s eye. Lowell laughs loudest at the jokes on set, and digs deepest to bring the emotional core of a character through the optics of the lens. When it’s time to make images that will make a client gush, you call Lowell. When it’s time to grab a camera and go out to shoot a stupid joke one of your friends thought of on a bender, you call Lowell. I love Lowell.
Lowell is one of the rarest pokemon out there. I am so lucky to have found my way into his life. He’s a keeper. He has the rare combination of being sharp, passionate, beautiful, kind, and talented. He’s a natural born leader. He’s the first one to set, and the last one to leave. Anyone who knows him lights up when they talk about him, including my mother who has only met him once. He’s the real deal. There are zero doubts in my mind about what Lowell is going to accomplish. He’s one of the few people you meet and just know he’s got it.. I love Lowell... Deeply and Truly...He’s a beautiful soul.
Lowell is an extraordinary talent, presence, and collaborator and there’s no one I’d rather have in the trenches of filmmaking with me. Not only do I trust him creatively/artistically, but I know I can rely on him professionally/logistically. He commands such respect while keeping a deft, light hand on things; he puts people at ease while making gorgeous, cohesive images. He’s flexible artistically, has ceaseless energy, and is down to get his hands dirty.
Lowell’s incredible care and focus imbued in the projects he works on has not only elevated the standards of creativity, knowledge, professionalism I hold for others on my team, but for myself as well. He becomes an instant companion with anyone he works with. He’s a director’s dream: someone who is easy to collaborate with, but also knows when to simply get the job done. He’s the standard to which I hold the rest of my crew.
Lowell A. Meyer is that rare and terrifying blend of knowledge and vision, and his level of proficiency is matched only by his positivity and complete lack of pretension. He is equal parts artist, pragmatist, and technician, and I can say with absolute certainty that he ranks among the most talented people I know.
