Logan was born to two Air Force pilots, leaving his head permanently stuck in the clouds. Growing up, he alternated between idyllic Peachtree City, Georgia and far-off spots like Munich and Beijing. He grew fascinated by the contrast between his provincial upbringing and the vast world outside. His imagination flared and he began writing every chance he could, eventually landing him at the University of Southern California’s Screenwriting program. While focusing on writing, he also studied both music composition and directing at USC.
After his sophomore year at USC, he returned to Peachtree City and directed his first feature-length film, Progidy. Over a month and a half of shooting, he led a team of more than a hundred people to tell the coming-of-age story of a teenage girl attending McIntosh High School – the alma mater of Austin and much of the cast and crew.
After graduation, Austin worked as both the music composer and first assistant camera for director Rob Smat’s 2019 feature The Last Whistle. The film premiered at the 2018 Lone Star Film Festival in Fort Worth, Texas, and is currently courting distribution offers.
Immediately following his work on The Last Whistle, Austin took on his second feature directing role, entitled My Tinder with Andre. Co-written with joint leads Amber Laird and Jordan Iacovella, the film narrates in real-time a Tinder date between the cynical realist, Chloe, and the idealistic dreamer, Andre.
