McCann's first feature film, Desolation Angels, won both the International Critics Prize (FIPRESCI) at the Toronto Film Festival and the Merchant Ivory/Kodak Award at the Telluride Film Festival, and was Critic's Choice at the Rotterdam International Film Festival. With directors Jonathan Demme and Barbet Schroeder presenting, Desolation Angels had a limited theatrical release in 1996 and landed on several best films of the year lists. McCann was one of the five finalists in the IFP-West SPIRIT awards. Soon after, McCann directed an episode of Barry Levinson's Homicide: Life on the Street, which starred Eric Stoltz and Joan Chen and Tate Donovan. In addition to directing, McCann works as a cinematographer, and has shot four feature films, including Larry O'Neil's Throwing Down (Winner, Hampton's Film Festival). He also teaches film studies at Purchase College, S.U.N.Y. McCann is currently in post production on his third feature, Nowhere Man, which shot in the summer of 2002.
