Dawn (2013, short, drama)
Directed by Rose McGowan
Starring Tara Barr, Reiley McClendon and Hannah Marks

"I just finished my first piece for RSA Black Dog, which is Ridley Scott's commercial music video company. I directed a 20-minute short with amazing actors. It was a really amazing project to do, and I felt really comfortable doing it, more so than I ever have acting."

Rose McGowan, if you have noticed, has been everywhere the last few weeks. From taking to Twitter to promote her humanist/feminist/awesome agenda to promoting her short film Dawn (which you can check out in its entirely on YouTube), the iconic ’90s girl seems to be more present than ever.
For her entire career, Rose McGowan has served heaps of unapologetic attitude, from her red-carpet choices (that epic nude dress!) to her choice of strong, textured roles. As she shifts into the director’s chair, we reflect on the parts that made Rose so…Rose, and had us all proclaiming, “Eat. My. Fuck.”

Actress and director Rose McGowan has a clear message for Hollywood after she says her tweet exposing what she sees as the film industry’s sexism got her dropped from her talent agency.

“I don’t care, bring it,” McGowan, 41, told ABC News of the possibility she could be blacklisted. “You want to to play, let’s play.”

“It made me laugh and it made me sad,” McGowan said of the casting note. “I was like, really, still?”

McGowan announced in a tweet this week, that she was dropped by her agency, Innovative Artists.

The actress told ABC News she learned of it through an email.

“I just wrote back, ‘You’re hilarious,’” McGowan said. “That was my response. ‘You’re hilarious.’”
“Come on, Hollywood, get a better script,” she added. “This one’s predictable.”

From Rose:

“Dear viewer,
Dawn is a cautionary tale. We hurt girls with casual negligence. We change the course of lives with a stereotypical view shared thoughtlessly. We shape the minds of the innocent. Let’s think different and be better.
My inspirations were varied – I wanted the color palette of The Parent Trap (1961) the loneliness of an Edward Hopper painting, the driving tension of Night of the Hunter mixed with Hemingway’s unsparing style of editing. These greats are my teachers.

I layered a lot into Dawn and feel it’s best watched twice. Please enjoy for free and pass it on. THOUGHT+ART = FREEDOM

Peace,
Rose McGowan

Attention LA Fans! Dawn will be playing for a week in L.A. next month along with female-driven films picked by the director. This is wonderfully exciting and all of the staff at Rose-McGowan.com would kill to go to this! Any fans in the L.A. area, please go out and support our lady! If anyone does indeed attend we would love to hear a report about your experience and have it published on the site. Not only is this a great opportunity to see some handpicked classic films with strong leading female performances, Rose will be in attendance and also is aiming to put her directorial debut in Oscar contention!

The Hollywood Reporter writes:

When Rose McGowan’s short-film directorial debut Dawn premiered at Sundance this winter it took many by surprise. It didn’t look like the work of someone who had been acting since she was a teenager (TV’s Charmed, Grindhouse, The Black Dahlia), but rather the work of a cinephile who had spent a lifetime feasting on the classics.

After generating some acclaim for Dawn earlier this year, McGowan is now hoping the film can nab an Academy Award nomination. To qualify for best short it must be publicly exhibited for paid admission in Los Angeles for three consecutive days, but McGowan has decided to turn her qualifying run into a week long “Dawn Festival” and will be setting up residency at the Downtown Independent on Sept 19.

For seven nights, Dawn will be accompanied by a movie picked by McGowan. According to a statement, the films were chosen because they “feature iconic performances by actresses that prove rich, complex and layered roles can and should be written for and by women.” The films will screen with McGowan and special guests in attendance.

For the former Charmed actress, Dawn and its Oscar run are her first steps towards directing features. “I have three features in the works right now,” McGowan tells THR. “Two are in rewrites. One is a bigger film, one smaller. After conservatively estimating my time on sets at over 17,000 hours, I’m more than ready.”

Here’s the full “Dawn Festival” lineup, along with McGowan’s reasoning for picking each film:

'The Tell-Tale Heart' Articles Gallery Media Alerts
Article written on February 12, 2014 by Mycahe-mail

Rose McGowan is featured in the new issue of Fault Magazine Issue #17. In it she openly admits she has made many movies she’s not proud of and discusses her disappointment over the upcoming The Tell-Tale Heart based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. Saying she hopes it stays shelved, “I felt a little duped by Tell Tale. Blinded by Poe, as it were. Sometimes you think people have a strong vision, and it’s often not the case. Very hard to tell beforehand. Sucks discovering it.” Rose goes on to say: “It’s very hard to make a film that comes together on all levels. It’s like painting with 100 paintbrushes that are held by individual egos.” It sounded like a very promising project, so it will be quite interesting if the final product ever makes release.

The article isn’t all negative though, Rose talks about how she hopes to keep directing after Dawn and that getting into Sundance with the film has been the highlight of her career.

“I have no inteterest in real. I find real people boring.” – Rose McGowan

“If somehow, Liza Minnelli in Cabararet and Jean Harlow had a baby and threw it in white puffy boots with the perfect poodle… It would be you!” – Rose McGowan judging Sharon Needles

Screencaptures of Rose McGowan guest judging on the most recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race have been added to the gallery. What a fun (and emotional!) episode. Rose couldn’t have guest starred on a more fitting episode, being that it was doggy inspired couture and we know her love of pups. Rose looked gorgeous in her amazing sparkling corset and the episode was a blast, that ultimately and tearfully sent one of my favorite queens home. I really wish Rose would come back for more episodes because she was hilarious alongside Ru and the other judges! Watch the entire episode on Logo’s website (US only).
