Animated Film Musical - 2004

Alan's thoughts
I will forever torture Disney executive’s Peter Schneider and Tom Schumacher about the night they took me out to Picholine to wine and dine me, and convince me that an animated movie about cows, titled “Sweating Bullets”, was the perfect next project for me. 4 directors, 3 plot lines and 2 new vice-presidents of Disney Feature Animation and 1 complete title change later, the jury is still out on whether it was worth it.

The movie never really found it’s core or it’s unique voice. But we sure had a blast working with such artists as Bonnie Raitt, k.d. lang and Tim McGraw; not to mention going on a rip-roaring 19th century-style cattle drive, as research. It also allowed me to forever have the image of Tom Schumacher appearing at a press rollout in white, fuzzy chaps and cowboy hat. And, I do have to say that the songs and score have a treasured place in my heart.
