Jen McGowan received her BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she trained as an actor at the Atlantic Theater Company studying with David Mamet, William H. Macy & Sam Shepard.
After graduating, Jen made the move from acting to writing & directing with her award-winning short film SHE NEVER. During this period, Jen worked her way up the production ladder with some of New York’s top companies such as RSA/Black Dog, A Band Apart, Killer Films, and Propaganda. She was fortunate to work on many independent feature films including the Oscar winning BOY’S DON’T CRY.
In 2002 Jen gained a place to study directing in the MFA program at the University of Southern California, where she directed her first music video, “Chelsea Hotel”, for artist Karen Ramos, and her thesis film, CONFESSIONS OF A LATE BLOOMER. Jen was honored with a grant from The Caucus Foundation for her work on LATE BLOOMER as well as a scholarship from Women in Film recognizing outstanding young female filmmakers.
In 2009 she co-wrote and directed the award-winning commercial “Couch Therapy” for client Viesso. Her latest directing project, TOUCH, marks her fifth collaboration with husband Philip Lott.
Jen is a contributing writer to the website Film Industry Bloggers and an Executive Board Member of the Caucus Foundation Alumni Network. She is in pre-production on the short BE STILL MY BEATING HEART and is attached to direct the independent feature film KELLY AND CAL.
