Lekker Bio – Jamie Wright
Jamie founded Lekker Media, in 2006, making short interview & documentary pieces as well as comedy videos & PSAs for such clients as Publicis/Hal Riney the California Department of Public Health, and Adobe Systems, Inc.
Though Jamie is a Bay Area native, he started his video work in Amsterdam, for the improv & sketch comedy theater Boom Chicago. There he shot, wrote and directed short videos for theater, mobile and the web, including the 2004 election viral hit Florida Voting Machine & was pleased to work with such talents as Seth Meyers & Jason Sudekis (of SNL), Kay Cannon (30 Rock), and Nicole Parker, Jordan Peele, Josh Meyers & Ike Barinholz (Mad TV). While in Amsterdam, he pioneered the theatrical integration of live video and improvisation with Boom’s cast and technical crew.
His work has appeared on broadcast television in Europe and the US, and has been featured in Time Magazine. Jamie’s work with Boom Chicago was nominated for an EPICA Award for best short animation & he was also an actor and writer on the award-winning 2002 short, Dance Machine. Jamie is on the board of the San Francisco Improv Festival, and is a producer for local improvisational stalwarts The Freeze and Crisis Hopkins (the latter of which he also performs with).
