Day 151/366 – LAIKA/house Shoe Wednesday #12. Jessica Funaro, Production Coordinator.

Today marks LAIKA/house Shoe Wednesday #12! LAIKA/house is a world-renowned commercial animation studio located in Portland, OR. I captured 14 kicks and 14 stories in 2 hours on a Shoe Wednesday with the help of Greg from Greg Helton Photography. The plan is to feature one LAIKAn every Wednesday for a total of 14 weeks. I truly believe you can tell a lot about a person by the kicks on their feet…so I’m excited to share what I found on the inside among this creative bunch!”

Name: Jessica Funaro

Role @ LAIKA/house: Production Coordinator

Kicks on Jessica’s feet: FRYE Women’s Engineer Boots

Jessica lived in New York for 8 years; she acquired these boots shortly after she first arrived in the city. They have withstood many miles of walking and have been worn to formal events, the Million Women March and have travelled across the country. Jessica has had them re-soled once…as you can see, they are still alive and kicking!

Check out this “Lonely Lettuce” commercial for Kraft – Anything Dressing. Jessica was a Production Coordinator for this stop-motion spot. LAIKA/house created the cast from molds with internal armatures. Each was painted to look just like its edible inspiration and animated on a life-sized kitchen. Perfect timing for summer BBQ’s! Truly amazing work.
