In our first feature under our year long project – EMPHASIZE FEMALE TALENT – we got to connect with Cailin Lowry. She’s witty from the start, even on her ‘about me’ page. She seems like one of those girls you meet at a random party & become close with immediately. Her work speaks volumes about the person she is – well connected with culture yet has a firm grasp on important social issues. She considers herself a producer-writer-director [in that order] who makes a living as a freelance producer.
Her work is usually in some phase of music video producing. She just finished directing a promo for a non-profit, Girls Who Code. It’s an organization that is working to close the gender gap in computer science. It was her first time being hired as a director and this time the story is all about female empowerment. Not too shabby.
The most consistent project for her is called Girl Band — it’s a TV concept she’s been working on since junior year of college with two other girls (Kerry Furrh and Olivia Mitchell). They co-directed/wrote/produced the short film version of it last year and it ended up premiering at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Through Tribeca we got representation and a production company involved to help develop and sell Girl Band. So, right now Cailin is splitting her time 50% producing and 50% on developing Girl Band.
