Scott Gaffney On Filming Shane McConkey
An excerpt from 'McConkey'
Matchstick Productions and Red Bull released this clip from their highly anticipated film, “McConkey,” this week. Scott Gaffney, codirector of Matchstick Productions, lived with Shane in Tahoe and the two were close friends. Film critics and skiers, fans and strangers alike praised “McConkey” at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, where the documentary premiered in April. “The profile of the extreme-sports pioneer Shane McConkey is both remarkable to look at and, at a screening I attended, didn’t leave a dry eye in the house,” the L.A. Times wrote in an article following Tribeca. The documentary will tour cities across the U.S. this fall. For more informaiton, visit McConkeyMovie.com.
