Actor Chris Lowell of “Up in the Air” and “The Help” note just finished directing his first film, “Beside Still Waters” and is juggling numerous auditions.

Despite his busy schedule the Atlanta native found time to come home to share tips the other day during a session at Camp Flix, a filmmaking summer camp for kids 11 to 17.

“Thank you guys, so much, for listening to what I have to say,” Lowell told the attentive young group. “If you guys have any questions, any questions at all, I’ll tell you anything.”

The group did have plenty of questions for Lowell, stemming from technical questions about his craft to “Can I have your autograph?” And one enterprising camper asked if she could give him her resume and head shot. Lowell seemed to relish his time with the young people aiming to follow in his footsteps.

Camp Flix featured a red carpet event where campers debuted their own works.

“I am sure that at some point in my life I will be asking one of you for a job. I will be groveling,” he quipped.

He spilled some celebrity dish (Daniel Day Lewis gets completely into character and stays that way throughout a film’s shooting.Jeff Bridges likes to rehearse over and over and over before a scene. Denzel Washington prefers a more spontaneous approach).

“Up in the Air” star George Clooney provided a great anecdote.  During Lowell’s scene in the movie, he and Clooney are talking on the phone the whole time and do not actually share screen time. Yet Clooney took time to help Lowell rehearse.

“I’m shooting this movie, and who am I? I’m a nobody with a tiny little part. Clooney comes in on his day off and sits with me and we read lines for hours,” Lowell said. “You cannot get more famous than him. It was a small gesture on his part. It really made a huge impression on me.”

The takeaway is pretty good advice regardless of what profession the campers head into: “It’s simple, but be nice to people,” Lowell said. “Say ‘thank you’ a lot. No one ever gets mad when you say ‘thank you.’ ”
