Produced by Red Bull Media House, in association with Matchstick Productions, and directed by Murray Wais, Steve Winter, Scott Gaffney, David Zieff and Rob Bruce, MCCONKEY celebrates the life of one of the world’s ultimate innovators: Shane McConkey. Featuring incredible action footage and Shane’s own home videos, MCCONKEY offers a rare look at his most intense risks as well as an intimate portrait of his personal life.
MCCONKEY, a feature-length documentary from Red Bull Media House in association with Matchstick Productions, is a heartfelt examination of the legacy one athlete left to the progression of his sports, and the path he paved to conquer his dreams. Shane McConkey is revered as a pioneer of freeskiing and ski-BASE jumping, and through his talent and ability to use his trademark irreverent humor, he inspired countless lives. Through interviews with friends, family, and other action sports legends, the film celebrates Shane and the way he lived.
