Project Spotlight

Dawn (2014, short drama)
Directed by Rose McGowan
Starring Tara Barr, Reiley McClendon and Hannah Marks

"Dawn is really about what we do to young girls unwittingly, and how we send them out into the world completely unprotected, in a way that has, at times, really tragic consequences. Being polite at the risk of your own internal voice of danger being silenced is a pretty dangerous thing."

Rose McGowan is partnering with television festival SeriesFest on a scriptwriting competition called the Featuring Women Initiative. The aim of the competition is to search for new episodic content about, for and featuring women, offering artists the opportunity to share series that create unique and powerful roles for women.

Scriptwriters can submit concepts for 30-minute or 60-minute dark comedy or dramatic series with each pilot script focusing on a female-centric episodic story. Submissions will be judged from a three- to 15-page “Series Bible”, including log line, pilot summary, character breakdown, at least six future episode synopses and a five- to 10-page writing sample. The winner(s) will receive a writing deal with Rose’s production banner Damage Inc. Productions and the opportunity to work alongside McGowan to bring her show to life.

“Damage Inc. is looking for screenwriters. Writers who are interested in bringing substantial women to life via episodic storytelling”, says Rose McGowan. “Any genre except slasher films or superhero series. Can be psychedelic, can be true to life, can be comedy, can be tragedy. Must be intelligent, smart, fierce and moving. Society is in dire need of voices that are not from within the Hollywood ecosystem. I know what’s available there, which is why I am looking for you and your writing talents.”

I was fed this idea that being an actress was everyone’s dream except that it wasn’t mine. Directing, on the other hand, comes so naturally for me. I love creating and having a voice. My personality hasn’t changed – I’ve just opened my mouth and spoken. I didn’t have a platform for that before.
-Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan is featured on the front cover of the October 2015 issue of Prestige Hong Kong with a gorgeous new shoot and a super interesting interview. You can read on for the interview and check out the photoshoot in the gallery.

A Woman’s Worth

Film and television star ROSE MCGOWAN spent the last few years out of the spotlight before recently emerging as an unofficial spokesperson for female empowerment. DIVIA HARILELA meets her in New York

One of the most iconic images of Rose McGowan was taken at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1998. The sultry actress, who was dating rocker Marilyn Manson at the time, caused an uproar when she walked down the red carpet in a see-through chain-mesh dress with her backside hanging out in full view. Seventeen years on and McGowan couldn’t be more different. She walks in unnoticed at the trendy Standard Hotel in New York City, which is buzzing thanks to Fashion Week. Her long dark locks have been replaced with a messy boy cut and she’s wearing a simple white shirt, black jeans, trainers and a backpack. She looks more like a cool art student than a famous Hollywood starlet.

Born in Florence, Italy to hippy parents, McGowan moved to the United States when she was 10 and later ended up in Los Angeles, where she was discovered by a Hollywood agent at 17. She made her debut on the big screen in the film The Doom Generation, which quickly garnered her an Independent Spirit Award nomination. Soon she was starring in high-profile films directed by the likes of Wes Craven and Quentin Tarantino, and appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone. By the mid 1990s she became a part of American pop culture thanks to her starring role in the popular TV series Charmed. A few years later, after sustaining several injuries on movie sets, McGowan decided to take a break from Hollywood and disappeared from the big screen altogether. The period that followed was one that she has referred to publicly as “traumatic and life changing”.

Rose has just released a striking new music video for her first official single “RM486.” The star teams up with Spun director Jonas Åkerlund and is styled by Swedish fashion maverick B. Åkerlund.

Styled as a gorgeous, white alien shuffling between eccentric costumes that range from fetish goth to fallen angel chic — it’s a fitting video for the eerie piano ballad accentuated only by the subtle synth line and reverb-y vocals. Watch the haunting video below and prepare to have your breath taken away.

A look at the inimitable actor’s first musical performance

Rose McGowan is done with being told what to do. Having called out the film industry for sexism and left her acting career behind, The Doom Generationstar returned to Hollywood earlier this year with guns blazing – this time from the other side of the camera. After shooting her arresting directorial debut, the Sundance Award-nominated short Dawn, the actor-turned-director has teamed up with Spun director Jonas Åkerlund, enlisting his signature gothic vision for her unanticipated pop promo in the form of RM486.

Styled by Swedish fashion maverick B. Åkerlund, each of McGowan’s theatrical guises represents a different facet of the star’s morphing persona: from alien outsider (“Not only did I not fit in, I didn’t want to fit in,” she says of her formative years) to Hollywood starlet and beyond. Each persona carries a message, with the goth confronting people’s perception of beauty: “I actually think she’s the most beautiful,” McGowan says. Here the actor-turned director talks rocking the boat and kicking up an art fuss.

This release marks your musical debut, why now?
Rose McGowan:
In the last few years I’ve actually released some songs under different names, just me pranking the public. I woke up one day and realised I hated acting and that I’d always hated it. Imagine, its predominantly men whose scripts get done so it was mostly a male voice coming out of my mouth for fifteen years.

Bobby Caruso of VH1 wrote an article on Rose. Be sure to take a read!

Rose McGowan burst onto the scene in 1996 with Scream, then won over countless fans as the most sharp-tongued and sarcastic spirit animal sister in Charmed. After a high-profile relationship with Marilyn Manson, and a series of notable magazine covers, McGowan seemed nearly unstoppable. Fast forward to 2015, and she found herself fired by her agent and nearly blacklisted from Tinsel Town.

OK, let’s rewind a bit. Rose grew up in Italy as part of a religious cult known as Children of God, but moved to America at 10. By 15, she had already left home as a newly emancipated teen hoping to make it big in Los Angeles. As her Hollywood career began, McGowan became eponymous with a young sex symbol in Hollywood. She was funny, cool, and intelligent.

Then on June 18 of this year, McGowan tweeted a casting note for a script she received that was pretty, well, f’d up.
