Andy McDonough founded Roped In Productions in 2012 with a dedicated passion for storytelling and visual arts to capture the awe-inspiring journeys of legendary figures and captivating landscapes.

As an accomplished independent documentary filmmaker with a string of award-winning films, including the critically acclaimed ‘DIRTBAG: THE LEGEND OF FRED BECKEY’, the up-close and enthralling ‘K2: SIREN OF THE HIMALAYAS’, the adventure-fueled ‘SUPER FRENCHIE’, the powerfully moving “SAM NOW’, and the poignant ‘KUMARI: A FATHER’S DREAM’, Andy strives to bring audiences closer to the heart-pounding adventures and diverse human experiences that unfold in these remarkable narratives.

Roped In Productions aims to inspire and provoke thought with each project, shedding light on untold stories immersed in the raw beauty of untouched environments, delving into the depths of human resilience, triumph, and vulnerability while bringing the world’s wonders closer to our hearts.

Andy lives in Seattle with his wife Dani, a photographer and artist, and their two kids.
