Fifth-generation Texan TIM MCCANLIES
began his career writing, performing and directing live theatre. While working
on his MFA in the Graduate Cinema program at SMU, he completed several shorts
including "Nicole et Claude," which tied for first place at USC's
Student Film Awards and was sold to cable. After relocating to Los Angeles,
McCanlies signed a deal at the Walt Disney studios and, in 1987, his screenplay,
North Shore, was filmed for Universal (on which he also received
Associate Producer credit).
In 1998, he made his feature film
directorial debut on his script, Dancer, Texas Pop. 81. The film met with
acclaim, played continuously for seven months in his home state and premiered
internationally at the prestigious London Film Festival.
His screenplay for the critically
lauded 1999 animated film The Iron Giant earned McCanlies and director
Brad Bird an Annie, BAFTA Children's Award and a Nebula Award.
McCanlies' additional projects include
screenplays for the live-action The Night We Liberated Paris and Walden
Media's Around the World in 80 Days starring Jackie Chan. His
