Multi-Disciplinary Director Chrris Lowe Lands at Voyager for First US Commercial Representation Adland®

Voyager welcomes Toronto-based Director Chrris Lowe to their ever growing family of creatives for representation in the United States. With a focus on dynamic and authentic storytelling, her curiosity-led and visually driven filmmaking approach has spoken to various projects including commercials, music videos, documentaries for notable clients such as Spotify, Ally Bank, Rapha Sportswear and Multiverse.

“We look for holistic filmmakers in their own right who value collaboration over ego,” shares Co-Founder & EP, Andrew Hutcheson. “After seeing Chrris’ work initially, we really got the sense that she was someone pushing the envelope of her work creatively and pushing herself with each opportunity. She is endlessly curious and has Voyager’s sensibilities written in her DNA as if we’d been working with her for a lifetime.” 

“She has that x-factor combination of talent and drive complimented by grace and kindness” adds Co-Founder & Director, Charles Frank. “We are incredibly excited to be a part of supporting her journey as she embarks on this new chapter of her commercial career, and to just experience getting to work with someone this talented at such an emerging moment.” 

With a degree in social work and a deep care for fostering relationships through impactful projects, Lowe’s work tells the varied experiences of the BIPOC community through the lens of a Black, Queer, woman herself. Leading with care, community and intentionality, her passion began through photography as a creative outlet outside of her academic work. While shooting BTS on film sets, it became apparent that she carried the qualities of a director, which ultimately led her to dive into the world of directing and filmmaking, exploring the human experience in a way that feels relatable and celebrates the small but very rich details that contribute to day to day life, leaving viewers feeling empowered to ask more questions and do further exploration or their own.

Prior to Chrris joining Voyager, she and Charles collaborated on her most recent Vimeo Staff Pick for ‘In Tandem’ – a short documentary centered around L39ION of Los Angeles, America’s first black-owned pro cycling team. In a more recent project for Mutliverse, a platform that matches young talent with apprenticeship roles and existing employees with new opportunities, Chrris directed their latest comedic campaign, “The Future of Learning is Working.” 

“Voyager not only cares deeply about the work that’s being created but also acts as advocates for the voices of everyone on the team,” expresses Lowe. “They’ve created a space to feel valued not only as a creative, but as a human being. Through them I saw that it was possible to push the boundaries of commissioned work to tell stories that speak to and explore humanity in a meaningful way and that’s really all I wanted to do. The entire team is a rare bunch and I am so happy to be joining them and creating many beautiful things together.”
