Beginning with the 2011 racing season, Carom Video, based in Woodville, Michigan will be providing documentary style production services each week at I-96 Speedway. To provide the highest quality possible, Carom Video with Mellissa Manzagol has teamed up with 906 Graffix with Mike Barton for this production series in both production and post.
They will cover the main event of the week as well as get interviews in the pits (backstage for concerts and the like), crowd shots, reactions of patrons, shots of the vendor booths and whatever else we can find to make the shows interesting.
Each week a DVD will be produced and will be for sale the following week at one of the vendor booths.
A short promo for the I-96 Speedway website will be made as well. Streaming media, website delivery and other outlets for our productions will also be researched. They are seeking equipment sponsorships in trade for promotions during trackevents and other methods. This includes but is not limited to HDV & helmet 1080i cameras and a quad.
Last year I did a sample video for I-96 Speedway which lead to this season’s endeavor: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bs8SVPrVOk8
I was at the track only because of my co-producer Ted Stressman from “: The Michigan Ice Biking Adventure”, my first feature documentary on the topic of ice racing motorcyclists: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncRPTpSAn9o
I’ve been working with the documentary format since opening Carom Video in 2008. To see more samples of my work visit: www.youtube.com/user/CaromVideo
I’m a long time motorsport enthusiast and participant and have many friends that race. Ever since I figured out how to strap a camera to my helmet I’ve spent hundreds of hours shooting, editing and producing my own videos on an amateur level: www.youtube.com/BigYooper906
I started 906 Graffix in 2005 as an outlet for artistic hobbies and have used it mostly for production of custom vinyl graphics and logo design, it has also expanded to include DVD authoring and photography recently.
Met Mellissa on location during the shooting of Addicted to Ice 2 and found that we have very similar interests and communicate well. I’m so excited to be able to put all of my skills and interests into the same basket and takeit to the next level! I’m ready to go pro!
