John Lowe

1st Assistant director (DGA)

I am a DGA 1st AD with over 25 years of international production experience.

I worked my way up from Runner to Location Scout and Manager on low budget films.

Then, as I started a family, I transitioned into commercials, working as a 2nd AD and then as a 1st AD.

The jobs I work on tend to be jobs of scale, but I like them all – big or small.

I run a quiet, calm, efficient set. I see my basic role as one in which I create efficiencies where the director can maximize their daily time on set with the cast and all the while working with the Producer to keep it all within the constraints of a particular budget .

I have a partner, Anna and two children, Daniel and Tommaso.
