In a world of 15-second Instagram clips and constant social media churn, here’s a silver platter of Canadian BMX videos from recent months. This is the Northern Embassy’s Video Round Up.
The Northern Embassy first launched in 2010 as an online platform for Canadian BMX videos, photos, and editorial content. Since then, the website has gone through a variety of phases; there have been highs and lows. With some renewed enthusiasm and fresh ideas, we are hoping to bring back the site and make it better than ever. Welcome to the 2021 re-launch of the Northern Embassy.
To kick things off, we’d like to introduce the admin/contributor team consisting of Joel Fortin, Aaron Gates, Justin Schwanke, Ryan Eles, and Jeremy Deme. Dive in to learn more about the characters behind the site and their plans for showcasing Canadian BMX content from coast to coast.
There’s a few things you can count on every winter in Canada; the geese to fly south, snow and cold ass weather (or rain in Vancouver), hockey to be a major pass time for most Canadians and also for Joel Fortin to drop some serious heat from what he’s been filming up til winter. This edit is no exception, filmed over the course or 2017 in Toronto, Montreal, Buffalo and Barrie. Joel can slay a rail and I couldn’t imagine that last clip being any more perfect.
Joel Fortin blesses us with not one but two edits from this past non snow season. This new one is a mix of footage from the summer and stuff filmed during a trip to NYC in the fall. Shout out to Mason and Jack for sending through some clips and huge shoutout to Joel for hooking this up!!!!!
Joel Fortin is a Barrie,ON youngen who has been popping up more and more over the past couple of years and with good reason. He’s a humble dude, crazy tech, great filmer and loves bikes/biking. Read on…
