LOWELL DEAN BIO: Lowell Dean has been working in the Regina Film and Television Industry since graduating from the University of Regina (Film & Video Program). He has worked as a shooter, editor, producer and director for companies like SCN, Birdsong Communications and CBC. Last year he directed Hollywood (Saskatchewan) II, a three-part behind the scenes documentary on the prairie film industry, produced by Minds Eye Entertainment. Over the last decade Lowell has strived to balance career with independent projects, producing and directing at least one short film annually. This past year, he wrote and directed three projects – a short for the I Heart Regina anthology feature (which premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival), Juice Pigs (an epic action comedy that played to sold out shows in Saskatchewan), and Henry (a music video for Rah Rah that aired as the #1 viewers choice video on Much Music).
