To provide the highest quality possible, Carom Video with Mellissa Manzagol
([email protected] ) has teamed up with 906 Graffix with Mike Barton for this production series in both production and post.
Here is a sample of some work done during the 2011 racing season so far:
Mellissa opened Carom Video for business in 2008 specifically for production of documentary style work. The first main project undertaken was “Addicted to Ice: The Michigan Ice Biking Adventure”, a feature documentary on ice racing motorcyclists of Mid Michigan. The co-producer on that project, Ted Stressman, was the one that suggested Mellissa produce a mini-documentary at I96 Speedway last summer on the AMA Nationals, which she did. This project opened the door to the current summer series covering events at I96 Speedway. This is her first race track gig and the largest project she has ever assumed.
Mellissa met Mike during winter 2010 while on location for “Addicted to Ice 2: Hell or High Water”, the second ice biking feature for Carom Video. it quickly became clear that Mike was the right person to team up with for the I96 Speedway 2011 series thanks to his background in the topic at hand, video and graphics.
As a long time motorsport enthusiast and participant Mike knows the race scene. He has hundreds of hours helmet camera footage on the ice and out on trail, plus more. Over the years he has produced many of his own videos on an amateur level. www.youtube.com/BigYooper906
Mike started 906 Graffix in 2005 for production of custom vinyl graphics and logo design. Services have expanded to include graphics for video and websites plus DVD authoring, plus videography at the track every week.
Mellissa and Mike have teamed up for the 2011 season to provide the best quality productions possible for I96 Speedway. They look forward to an exciting season!
