Having worked with Matchstick Productions since 2014, we really couldn't be more excited and proud to be hosting the first ever nationwide tour for MSP Films.
In partnership with Elemental Adventure, Last Frontier Heli Skiing, Arctic Heli Skiing, Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports, Ski Club of Great Britain and Disability Snowsport UK - we are travelling to five cities throughout the UK as we proudly present "Drop Everything."
"Drop Everything" is the brainchild of veteran director Scott Gaffney, the man behind THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT McCONKEY and other Matchstick classics. “As a film company, it seems we’ve been working to impress viewers in so many different ways – moving stories, elaborate cinematography, and cutting-edge editing techniques. We’ve been after the ‘wow’ factor,” says Gaffney. “But as we focused on all of that, I feel that one of the most critical elements got lost in the mix: fun. And that’s what skiing is all about, right? With "Drop Everything", I want to put entertainment at the forefront. I want people walking away from our ski movie smiling, laughing, and feeling like they can’t wait to click into their skis again.” Gaffney goes on to say that he, as a ski movie viewer and enthusiast himself, wants an action packed movie that features the athletes as superstars. “So we’re going back to a bit of an old school style: personal skier segments, a whole lot of character and personality, several elaborate skits, and quick hitting comedy. Simply put, I want to deliver a rollercoaster ride that no one wants to get off.”
Audiences can expect unparalleled performances from many of the top skiers in the world. "Drop Everything" features Mark Abma, Markus Eder, Eric Hjorleifson, Michelle Parker, Sammy Carlson, Cody Townsend, Elyse Saugstad, Tanner Rainville, Chris Rubens, Aaron Blunck, Sander Hadley, Connery Lundin, and more. The next-level action was captured in world-class destinations including Meadow Lodge BC, Lake Tahoe CA, Whistler BC, Crested Butte CO, Revelstoke BC, and Silverton CO.
Always on the leading edge of camera technologies, Matchstick Productions filmed the entire movie in 6K ultra high-definition. According to Matchstick co-founders Steve Winter and Murray Wais, the difference will shatter viewers’ expectations. “Pricing of UHD TVs and other devices has come down while streaming bandwidth has simultaneously improved, meaning it’s easier than ever to access ultra HD content,” says Wais. Winter adds, “This will easily be the best-looking film we’ve ever released. Vivid colors, precise picture detail, and rich audio will make this a very memorable viewing experience.”
