David Lowery On ‘Pete’s Dragon’: How a Microbudget Filmmaker Became Disney’s Secret Weapon

9 August 2016 1:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nine years before he completed production on the multi-million dollar Disney remake of “Pete’s Dragon,” David Lowery was living out of the back of his car, editing corporate videos. The Dallas native directed his first feature, the little-seen “Lullaby,” at age 19. The ensuing years found him collaborating with a close-knit group of local film-savvy friends, but little in the way of upward mobility. “I never put a premium on making a living,” he told me in a recent phone conversation. “It was never one of those things that was important to me.”

Lowery’s work at the time suggests as much — it’s anything but commercial — and yet it provided him with an ideal platform for a massive career move as one of Disney’s newest secret weapons. “Pete’s Dragon,” a $60 million re-imagining of the 1977 live-action-animated musical film, has all the hallmarks of Lowery’s earlier work: a serene, »

Variety Honoree Kelly Reichardt: Still on the Side of the Outsiders

20 January 2016 10:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Most indie auteurs comfortably orbit the red hot sun that is big budget, tent pole-driven Hollywood, more than happy to exchange their artistic vision and the eternal quest for financing for a shot at a superhero franchise or monster movie with a built-in global audience and fat payday, should the chance ever come their way.

Kelly Reichardt, who will receive Variety’s 2016 Indie Impact Award at Sundance, is not that kind of filmmaker. Since making her acclaimed 1994 debut “River of Grass,” she’s followed her own singular orbit as a true outlier of indie cinema, and over the course of nearly quarter of a century and nine films has amassed a small but potent body of work – including “Old Joy,” “Wendy and Lucy,” “Meek’s Cutoff” and “Night Moves” – that has cemented her reputation as one of the most distinctive voices in movies today, thanks to her hands-on approach (she »
