After graduating from Ithaca College, Scott headed west – first to Colorado where he would meet and start filming longtime friend Shane McConkey (pictured here) then ultimately to Squaw Valley, California. Scott has been a partner with MSP since 1996. When we asked him to write a bio for the website he simply sent “Scott Gaffney is one bad ass mother fucker,” and we would have to agree. Scott knows more about ski movies than perhaps anyone else in the world. His ultimate passion for the sport of skiing, combined with his camera skills and editing capabilities, has led Scott to become a renowned legend in the ski film world. Together with MSP, Scott has helped to produce, shoot, and edit over 100 TV episodes and nearly 20 feature-length movies.
For this year’s iF3 Movie Awards, any and all films about skiing, snowboarding or a mixture of the two are eligible.
Whether it’s focused on freestyle, freeride, urban, backcountry, telemark skiing, mountaineering, adventuring, a documentary subject, or anything in between, your film is welcome at iF3.
