Dawn (2013, short, drama)
Directed by Rose McGowan
Starring Piper Laurie

"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.

Charmed 2.0 is described as a reimaginging of the original series that centered around four sisters who discover their destiny — to battle against the forces of evil using their witchcraft.

Rose McGowan faced a difficult challenge several years ago when she sat at her father Daniel’s bedside while he was dying from a rare lung disease.

The actress, best known for her role on the TV show Charmed and subsequent movies, was her father’s support person, sharing his passion for art books and watching Little Rascal episodes with him from his hospital bed.

Now, McGowan is using her celebrity as an actress to put a face on a rare fatal disease as a way to help patients and their families on this difficult road.

She said in a recent exclusive telephone chat last week that she has made it her mission to raise awareness about idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the disease that took her father’s life in 2008 at age 61, and to help people recognize the signs and symptoms, receive sorely needed emotional support.

It is especially timely that she is speaking out about the disease and her advocacy now because September is Pulmonary Fibrosis month.

The raven-haired McGowan, 40, who portrayed Paige Matthews in the supernatural drama Charmed, made her film debut in the 1992 comedy Encino Man.

Her upcoming projects include a film adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart which opens on Oct. 15, and she is making a movie in Texas called The Last Duane, a western due out in the fall of 2014, also starring Jason Patric.
