Project Spotlight

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."
