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."

While Rose McGowan is known for taking on edgy roles in the films like Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse” and the hit TV series “Charmed,” she says she only recently found her true calling, behind the camera.

“Directing wasn’t particularly challenging, I find acting more challenging,” McGowan told FOX411 ahead of the Thursday night Sundance Film Festival screening of her directorial debut short film, “Dawn.” “I’m used to handling a lot. I run a tight ship. I find acting harder because I have no control in that. I kept waiting for the panic attack to happen while directing, but it just didn’t… I like acting, but if I never act again, I’ll be okay.”

Written by M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller, who McGowan first met when she skipped school as a 14-year-old to play a movie extra, “Dawn” is centered on a quiet teenager living in a Kennedy-era America who longs for something or someone to free her from her sheltered life. The girl soon meets a boy at the local gas station who gets more from her than he anticipated.

Rose McGowan moves intuitively around her LA home in this tender portrait by Marlene Marino, shot earlier this year when the photographer captured the American actress for the latest issue of lifestyle title Apartamento. The Brian De Palma and Quentin Tarantino favorite made her name in tongue-in-cheek slasher Scream and supernatural series Charmed, and established her cult status in director Gregg Araki’s 1995 comedy thriller The Doom Generation, which saw the pin-up entangled in a sordid ménage à trois. Yet shooting today’s short was a strict case of ‘Two’s company.’ Having met through director Ridley Scott’s Black Dog Films—set to release McGowan’s directorial debut Dawn—the actress and Marino bonded over a shared attitude towards beauty. “Marlene and I were just celebrating femininity,” she says of the visceral short that is soundtracked by Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, who previously scored Shane Meadows’ This Is England. “I think people can rise higher than the consensus of what is considered sexy; our only objective was to do something natural. I didn’t act, I just flowed into it.”


Rose McGowan Dances Au Naturel in the Privacy of Her Californian Hideaway

What was it like to see yourself in this completely uninhibited state?
Rose McGowan: It was really transformative: it actually made me cry. It was born out of reclaiming my own ideas of what beauty is. I have realized that I don’t have to be bound by the “rules” here in Los Angeles or Hollywood. It is me, but not an artificial version.

What’s next for you?
RM: I’m going to direct my first feature film, taking things I borrowed from Marlene. I’m also making a show about art and pornography. It will be custom-made porn but not in the kind of way that you’ve seen or that you think of it.

Is that in production?
RM: I just shot the teaser for it and in it I’m wearing a strap-on. It’s pretty balls-out, I’m not gonna lie—it’s going to look insane.

What’s your experience of pornography?
RM: I have never liked it and don’t find it sexually interesting: I don’t like their hair, makeup, or acting. How am I supposed to get excited by something that I think is cornball and not beautiful?

So what would you consider to be sexy?
RM: Oh I don’t know, maybe two people in a lovely field on a farm, shot like Terence Malick.

Though Rose McGowan is known for her flashy style on the red carpet, the actress wowed in a very traditional white wedding gown when she tied the knot on Saturday in a romantic and ethereal ceremony.

The actress, 40, and artist Davey Detail were married on the lawn of the Paramour Mansion Saturday, her rep confirmed to PEOPLE exclusively. The ceremony was performed by a rabbi outdoors under a chuppah of McGowan’s design in front of 60 guests.

McGowan’s strapless A-line silk Monique Lhuillier creation featured a corset and Chantilly lace draped with a fine tulle overlay, and the waistline of the dress was accented with a knot detail cascading into the skirt.

She finished her bridal look with a raw edge chapel-length tulle veil and Jimmy Choo shoes and walked down the aisle solo to “The Song to the Siren” by This Mortal Coil.

After the ceremony, guests flowed into the intimate garden of the Paramour Mansion for the dinner reception, where DJ Madison Stewart spun tunes.

Inside the bash – planned by Amber Gustafson – miniature custom terrariums with name tags served as both seating assignments and party favors, and a dinner buffet included Southern comfort food staples such as fried chicken and waffles, ribeye steak and cajun creamed corn.

The table florals dripped with maiden hair fern and amaranthus in vintage brass vases and guests were seated on mismatched dark wood tables and chairs.

A custom cake by Fantasy Frosting that was a replicate of McGowan’s parents’ wedding cake added a sweet touch. One final surprise at the very end of the night? A bouncy house!
