Following this, he predominantly concerned himself with writing and producing films.[1] In 1913, Lowe worked as the revising editor of screenplays at Essanay Studios.[3]

In 1915, he scripted The Mystery of Silent Death and predominantly focused on mystery films.[1] He also occasionally worked outside the genre, such as when he was signed by Universal in 1929 to work on Broadway (1929).[4][1] In the talkies period, Lowe would work on The Vampire Bat (1933) and several Charlie Chan films: Charlie Chan in Paris (1935), Charlie Chan in Shanghai (1935) and Charlie Chan at the Race Track (1936). He would also produce, but not write Charlie Chan in Egypt (1935).[1] Lowe also worked on Bulldog Drummond films, such as Bulldog Drummond Escapes (1937), Bulldog Drummond's Revenge (1937), Bulldog Drummond Comes Back (1937), Bulldog Drummond in Africa (1938) and Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police (1939).
