ABOUT MIKE MCKAY & FIVE2NINE

Award winning filmmaker has applied his passion for adventure and compelling storytelling to webTV through his whitewater based series CURRENTS, Made In Canada, & Chaos Theory.
With a background in media and documentary filmmaking, his work has been featured on NRS Films, Red Bull, Canada AM, and many film festivals around North America.

Not only is Mike a filmmaker but his background as a professional whitewater kayaker has enabled him to paddle some of the world’s most remote rivers and access to the best athletes and characters the sport has to offer.

In November 2014 Mike was invited to participate in the Banff Adventure Filmmaker Workshop. Since then, Mike has branched out to other adventure sports such as mountain biking, climbing, canyoneering and skiing. The workshop also emphasized his love for storytelling and ‘letting the moment unfold’.

His client roster includes NRS, Jackson Kayak, Werner Paddles. In January 2015 Mike began working with the production house Reel Water Productions shooting a variety of projects including canyoning in Hawaii and ice climbing Niagara Falls.

Currently, Mike lives in Ottawa, Canada with his wife Joanne.
