Mikey Carr is a theatrical trailer, TV spot, and sizzle editor in Los Angeles. He has been fortunate to edit at companies such as Toy Box, Trailer Park, Chainsaw, Modern Videofilm, and FOX Sports. He has worked with producers and creative directors such as Barry Samson and Jeff Schectman (Toy Box), Adam Hauck (Executive Producer, Advanced Content - Trailer Park), David Leepson (Rich Kids of Beverly Hills), Tyler Perry, Chris Pizzi (88th Annual Academy Awards) and Michael Van Briesen (X Factor).
2016 has been an exciting year for Mikey. After editing The Revenant Best Picture TV spot for the 88th Academy Awards broadcast, he worked on campaigns for Daredevil Season 2 (Marvel/Netflix), Trolls (Dreamworks/Fox), and Keeping Up With the Joneses (Fox).
In 2015, Mikey had the distinct pleasure of editing two sizzle reels that launched a TV pilot and an entire series, respectfully. For Kombine Media, he edited the sizzle reel, "Free Ride", which went to pilot at History; he later served as Senior Editor on the pilot itself. For David Leepson, he edited the sizzle reel for the series, "F In Fabulous", which recently went to series at BET.
Mikey got his start in professional editing in 2005, when he moved to Los Angeles and landed a job at Modern Videofilm as a finishing editor. He worked on Smallville, The OC, Battlestar Galactica, How I Met Your Mother, and many other shows, before leaving to explore a career in offline editing.
Mikey lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Crystal, daughter Mila, and their two dogs Indy and Scout. In his spare time, he attends the University of LaVerne for Business Administration and plays drums with the Los Angeles pop band, Bernie and the Kims.
