Matchstick Productions and Red Bull Media House are working on a two-year film project titled Days of My Youth that will release in 2014. The film will take a look into the lives of skiers everywhere and the joys and struggles that go along with big mountain skiing. Exotic travel will be a key focus of the film, as the crew pushes the limites of aerial photography with their new camera, the Cineflex Elite. Skiers include Richard Permin, Mark Abma, James Heim, Michelle Parker, Cody Townsend, Markus Eder, Bobby Brown and Sam Anthamatten.


A special web series that includes behind-the-scenes footage and info on the making of the film launches in October. Meanwhile, the award-winning documentary, McConkey, which tributes the life of the late Shane McConkey, will be touring this fall, kicking off with a screening in Tahoe on October 5th
