Lowe’s parody on the Kanye West/Jay Z song “Otis” went viral appearing on websites like the Huffington Post, UPROXX, and Vulture.

Lowe created a character called the Octicorn, a half octopus, half unicorn who has been seen around the world.

His video “Runway Runaway” for Duran Duran, which he wrote, produced and directed, was selected by the band as a finalist in the Genero.tv competition and shown at the Fillmore in San Francisco before the band’s gig. OPB called it one of the best videos from Portland in 2011.

Lowe produced, wrote and directed an ambitious music video with a wedding, musical number and underwater fight scene for the Detroit rock band Electric Six.


His directing work has been seen on television and on the web, as well as in Vice and RES Magazine DVDs, at the SXSW Film Festival, and at the Ace Hotel in New York.

His edit of an Olympics piece on Gabby Douglas for P&G was viewed over a million times.
