For the 2008 Red Bull Elevation, we moved the contest to the Parque Metropolitano in Guadalajara, Mexico for a change of flavour. While Guadalajara certainly doesn’t have the glam of Whistler, everybody loved going down to Mexico to hang for a few days and chill out in May.
This video was produced by Red Bull Mexico (the music in this video is certainly what I wouldn’t have picked, but it’s not the worst thing I’ve ever heard). Be sure to watch the HD version of the video.
Over 1,000,000 views as of December 2009. Wow.

Video footage of the last Red Bull Elevation held in Canada – our last contest in Whistler. Red Bull filmed the entire event as they always have on crazy HD cameras, and almost none of the footage has ever been seen. In the past, they produced 24 minute highlight promos for television (see the other 2005 and 2006 videos linked below), and unfortunately for this final year, only 3 short clips were produced, and they went straight to YouTube. A real shame… Maybe someday this footage will make it’s way into the public domain.
Almost 275,000 views as of December 2009.

A 3:20 video made to showcase the Metro Jam BMX contest experience. Filmed by various people (including footage provided by Props), I put together this edit, and intro graphic. Footage was all filmed at the 2006 Toronto Metro Jam at the Ricoh Coliseum.
Song: ‘Hip Hop’ by Mos Def.
This video promo was put together for a Solo Mobile sponsorship proposal in 2006. We wanted to showcase the energy and talent at our Metro Jam events – something you just don’t get at the larger corporate TV events. This isn’t the greatest quality output… It’s all I have in my archive though.

Here’s a highlights video I put together for the 2005 Toronto Metro Jam pro finals a few years back. This edit was cranked out in a matter of hours so that I could get it online ASAP.
My parents are in town for a week, so we went to the Apple Festival at the UBC Botanical Garden on the weekend to taste some of the 60+ varieties of apples. My parent’s hadn’t even been in town for 24 hours and they already make an appearance on CNN. My dad gets a speaking roll, coming in at the 2:41 mark at the blind taste test of a couple different apples. You can see my mom and I just off to the right.
Katie introduces the new Apple cultivar (SPA493) at 2:28.
Just before we went to the Apple Fest, we stopped by Nitobe Garden for a quick tour to see the fall colours. The garden was looking amazing, so of course I shot a ton of photos. Here’s one of them here… I’ll try to post more later.

Looks like the Red Bull Elevation videos have finally made their way online. This is the official full length video put out by Red Bull, and is a great look at the 2006 contest. I’ll link to some of the other videos in another post as well. This event took place over the Canada Day long weekend in 2006.
I miss doing these events the most… Nothing against the Metro’s – but these Elevations were just at a completely different level.
