“McConkey,” a feature-length documentary to be released in 2013, 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 to inspire countless lives. In a new film from Red Bull Media House in association with Matchstick Productions, “McConkey” celebrates the life of one of the world’s ultimate innovators. All proceeds from the film will go to a trust set up for the McConkey family.

“What is perhaps most remarkable about McConkey is how much potential it has to appeal past the extreme sports set. The film is about that one-in-a-million drive that pushes some people beyond the boundaries of what anyone had previously dreamt possible. Few films so succeed in showing us what makes someone like that tick.” -Freeskier.com
“There is joy and wonder in this movie, but it is tempered with loss and pain. At the end of the day, it’s not the role of the film to answer the question (was it worth it?). The fact that it so movingly manages to ask it makes ‘McConkey’ a remarkable accomplishment.” -ESPN.com”
“…it’s about life, what it means to live it, and how one can take on a life that inspires and changes the world.” -FirstShowing.net
“Personal bias or no, the film is a historical, inspirational, and beautiful human story.” -FirstShowing.net
