Hello All,

This is an update to show you all my acting debue. Over last summer I was a Production assistant at LAIKA house for a few days.

LAIKA as most of you Portland folks know is the animation company that made the film Coraline that came out a few weeks ago. Well, they also make commercials. I was a helper on the shoot; setting up green screens, helping the lighting people, carrying heavy things... and in the end, winding up in the commercial.

"you probubly won't even be able to recognize yourself" they told me.

Well, it turns out I was right smack dab in the center of the spot.


Its still on the LAIKA site, but a little hard to get to, all you need to do is follow this link:

Then click on "Reels" > "Most Recent Spots"

Its the last one on the right.

Did any of you happen to see this when it was on TV? I know a few people who saw it after I told them to keep a lookout for it... I didn't own a TV at the time :(

I do feel the need to mention that for 10 minutes of pretending to walk while in front of a green-screen than I did for moving heavy things around the set for two and a half days... Draw your own conclusions.

Fun Fact: The top 3 most disliked vocal styles in music: opera, rap, and children choirs.
