Most moviegoers probably don’t recognize the name David Lowery. But those in the Texas independent film community know him well. The soft-spoken Wisconsin native, who moved to the Dallas area as a child, has been making his own films as well as editing and writing films by other Texans for more than a decade.
He edited Austinite Kat Candler’s stirring short film “Hellion,” currently being made into a feature with executive producers Sarah Green and Jeff Nichols; co-wrote and edited Austinite Yen Tan’s 2013 Sundance Film Festival entry “Pit Stop,” a moving story of two men falling in love in small-town Texas; and edited Dallas filmmaker Shane Carruth’s 2013 critically acclaimed art-house film “Upstream Color,” starring Amy Seimetz, whose feature directorial debut, “Sun Don’t Shine,” Lowery also edited.
