Coolest Moment Of Our Lives? Quite Possibly!

This is the polaroid pic we took with Leno! It doesn't get much cooler than this folks!

It's been real, unreal and surreal: The rest of the LA trip!

All right, now that I told you about the Jib Jab experience, it's time to fill you in on all of the other exciting moments that happened in LA! Before I do that, let me remind you of the top 5 reasons why I wanted to go to LA:

5) I Haven’t Left the Time Zone.

If it wasn't for terrible jet lag the first few nights (Sarah can attest to how I was practically sleepwalking at the jazz cafe we went to!), then I really would have enjoyed it more. But I think I was like a little kid when I kept thinking what time it is in New York! It was actually the first day, when we walked through the Third Street Promenade in the late afternoon and I saw the Yankees-Red Sox game on the TV at a restaurant bar that I got really confused!

4) Have you been to Binghamton?

Apparently we went during the worst overcast time, and the one day we were prepped for the beach, it wasn't beach weather, but even seeing the palm trees everywhere were enough for me!

3) I want to see the celebrities!

AND THAT WE DID! I almost died when I saw Dermot Mulroney (The Wedding Date, My Best Friend's Wedding,jeez...the guy loves matrimony!) at a table right next to us at this new cafe! It was at that same cafe we saw "Trey" from "The OC." So two celebs in one sitting--not to bad! Then it was the next day for dinner that we saw the actor who played "Napoleon Dynamite" at a restaurant! Not to mention seeing and taking pics with Bob Saget at The Laugh Factory and Jay Leno at The Tonight Show! Also we went to the Bill Maher show and saw Ben Affleck on the season finale (not to mention Kevin Costner and Jordin Sparks on Leno!)! But the excitement didn't end when we got back to New York. JC Chasez, formerly of N'SYNC, was spotted when we got offthe plane! I guess I didn't need to leave NY after all to see some stars!

2) I want the golden ticket!
Like the American Idol hopefuls, I want to say, “I’m going to Hollywoooooooooood!!!

All right, now coupled with my Leno experience, I didn't think that an idol reference was going to turn into a reality! It turns out on Tuesday night, after Sarah and I checked out my cousin, Damon's work on the Comedy Central show, "Lil' Bush," we walked our way over to the Kodak Theatre. Damon suggested that there could be a chance there may be some unused Will Call tickets. So I power walked my way up to the theatre.

"Tickets!" the usher cried out.
"How do I get tickets!" I replied in a panic.
"Go try at the box office. Show starts in 5 minutes!"
So Sarah and I headed down to the office, where we were told they can't give out any tickets at that moment. So we hovered around that area and stood next to a security guard. The woman calls over the security guard two minutes later and tells him "Go start finding people to give out these tickets."
"I have two girls right here," he said.
"All right take these two."

And so I was handed an American Idol ticket and quite frankly, I think I was lifted up to our seats on Cloud Nine.

If there was anywhere in the world I wanted to be (sorry if this sounds cheesy) but it was right there at that Idol show--and since we were in LA anyway--why, we just HAD to be there! We didn't see the real finale, but we saw the night that really counted, and therefore, add Ryan, Paula, Simon and Randy to the list of celeb sightings!

1) This is my big break!

All right. Now what didn't I do out in LA you ask? Let's see, not only did we see celebs, view the shows American Idol, Jay Leno and Bill Maher, GO ON THE SET of the filming of National Treasure 2 by chance, but we checked out Universal Studios, Rodeo Drive, toured the Celebrities homes, checked out the Walk of Fame and the Chinese Theatre, covered the Santa Monica Pier, shopped at Third Street Promenade, The Grove and The Farmer's Market, walked along Venice Beach and ate at some great restaurants! Now I don't know if this was my big break--that I'll have to get back to you years from now, but I do know that this trip was an unreal, and surreal experience that I will truly NEVER forget.

I think Sarah and I are extremely fortunate to have done all we did in Los Angeles. As you can see, a lot of our cool stories and experiences all happened by chance! It all couldn't have been possible without and Jib Jab Media!


The Jib Jab Experience: Nuckin' Futs!

I think I speak for Sarah and myself when I say that this trip to Los Angeles was WAY more that we could have imagined. Our main destination was the Jib JabMedia office in Venice, California, as part of the amazing prize we won to job shadow the creators of JibJab Media. By the end of the trip, we not only learned more about the digital media business, working in the entertainment industry, and living out in Los Angeles,but we got to experience first-hand some of the greatest entertainment shows out there on our trip!

Let me first talk about my Jib Jab experience, because after all, that was the reason I was able to go on this entire trip to begin with! Sarah and I woke up bright and early (5:30am that is) to head over to the office, which apparently is within walking distance of Venice Beach! (not to shabby, right?) We sat down with Jenny, who is the Production Coordinator, responsible for overseeing pretty much every aspect of the videos from start to finish. It sounds like a really great job! Especially for someone like myself who likes to get my hands on a little of everything! Jenny told us how she landed in Los Angeles herself, and I think it further reinforced the notion in Sarah's mind that she NEEDS to be out in Los Angeles for her career!

As for me, I was really intrigued after sitting with Andy, one of the writers for Jib Jab. He talked about how hard it is to come up with new ideas, break into the business and keep things funny. Andy sent out some "specs," or short scripts to different shows with the hope that he can get some episodes under his belt. I love the idea of writing comedies, but I must say that I was a bit discouraged. I'm not sure I'm passionate enough to write and write and write some more, and THEN handle what really seems to be an extremely competitive field of work. But I really would love to write a movie script someday and his advice really made me think with the right attitude, time committment and direction, it could happen!

The folks at Jib Jab treated us to coffee and lunch, and it was at our second Starbucks run that we were able to sit down with Evan, one of the co-creators of Jib Jab. Evan could quite possibly be one of the coolest bosses to ever work for. He has a laid-back attitude, but passionate desire to see the company grow. It really seemed to be a fun dynamic to be around! He really was so humble too, as he joked about he still felt like he's in his Brooklyn garage with his brother, Gregg, where the idea of Jib Jab came about. Evan brings to the table the artistic and web-based knowledge while Gregg, the other co-creator, is more focused on the creative writing and business side of Jib Jab. Those assets really do compliment each other!

Unfortunately that day, we couldn't meet with Gregg, the other half of the brains behind the business, so again, Sarah and I woke up at5:00am to get to the Jib Jab office by 7:00am for an early breakfast with Gregg (who mind you, got in the office at 5:30am!)

When we came in, we saw Evan sleeping on the couch in the break room. He didn't go home that night before! These guys are WORKAHOLICS!

They literally told us they put in about 12hr work days, if not more. So while at breakfast, most of our questions were answered the prior day, butit was interesting to pick the brain of a Wharton School graduate! Sarah and I grilled him on how the company actually profits (which at the moment, it does not!) and gave advice on the best ways to target our demographic for their new features--which aren't targeting those interested in politics like their previous works!

Overall the Jib Jab experience was great. Sarah and I even got to play in front of the green screen where they do the filming for their short videos. I really learned a lot about the business, the future of digital media, and life on the other side of the country. Seeing Gregg on Thursday was well worth it! Not only did he help round out the Jib Jab experience, but after telling him we planned on going to try to get Jay Leno tickets that day, he replied confidently, "I can get you guys tickets!" Little did we know that the tickets he got us were the two best seats in the house--directly in front of Leno when he does his monologue! (We also got to take a poleroid with Leno prior to the start of the show after being called up to the stage!) Seeing Jay Leno was one of MANY incredible stories that happened out there! But our time at Jib Jab really was an incredible experience.
I wish I could find a job that allows me to be as passionate about my work as both Evan and Gregg are about Jib Jab!

Adieu, Adieu to you and you and you

To all my blog supporters,
This is a big day in my life. Not only did i just partake in a spectacular chocolate-eating party with my roomate (with all the chocolate treats her grandmother sends her in care packages pretty much every other day), but today signifies the three-week mark for Brooke's and my blog. Yes, supporters, this is IT. The final stretch. The big finale. The fat lady is singing. We have done our work, and now our popularity will do the rest. If we have more hits than our other finalist friend Amber, then we, ladies and gentlemen, have won! This will be all due to you, and I'd like to thank everyone for clicking the link! When we know the results of the contest, we will post it immediately on the blog. (Even better, I'm hoping that we will win so that we can give you a phone call from the sunny beaches of Los Angeles). I had a lot of fun writing this blog, I'm not going to lie. I got to learn the in's and out's of the world of online journalism and I also got to express myself and show off my movies a little bit. I'm proud of the work we've done, and I hope you have enjoyed reading our blog just as much as both of us enjoyed making it. I'm hoping for the best possible results in this competition, but whether we win or not, it was incredible to be among the TOP TWO in a national media contest and to have the experience Brooke and I have had in making this is invaluable.

Thanks For Everything. You're the best supporters a blogger could ask for.

Top 5 Reasons Why I Need To Go To LA!

5) I Haven’t Left the Time Zone.

Sad, but true. I’ve traveled to Florida a few times, but it was to see my grandparents in Boca, which is really just an extension of New York, so that shouldn’t even count! And just last October, I FINALLY left the country when I crossed the border at Niagara Falls. So it’s safe to say I need to get out more.

4) Um, have you ever been to Binghamton?

Let’s just say it felt like -25 degrees a few weeks ago according to If it’s not snowing, it’s raining. In fact, Binghamton is one of the top 10 rainiest cities in the country. Enough said.

3) I want to see the celebrities!

Now I’ve seen my fair share of the rich and famous: Sarah Ferguson was 10 rows behind my family and me at The Lion King on Broadway, I’ve interviewed Bob Costas and members of the New York Mets (for those sports fans at home), and I saw Bebe Neuwirth in a grocery store in the city (she’s an actress). Wow. Now that I think about it, I really haven’t seen any celebrities. I wouldn’t mind bumping elbows with George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey or of course, Mr. Brad Pitt, in LA!

2) I want the golden ticket!

Like the American Idol hopefuls, I want to say, “I’m going to Hollywoooooooooood!!!!”

And now...the #1 Reason Why I Need To Go To LA.....



All right, while I don’t have a Hillary Swank-like story of my family living out of a car for years, life hasn’t been that easy. Getting this opportunity would really validate everything that I have strived to accomplish. Working in the entertainment field has always been a dream, and there is a part of me that wonders whether or not that will just stay a life-long dream. But this could be the beginning of an amazing future! I can see it now….

I would like to thank the Academy, the Hollywood Foreign Press, my parents, and most of all—JibJab Media—for starting me out on this incredible journey!


CRIBS: University Plaza

Above is a prime example of my BTV Cribs (for Binghamton Television), made last semester by me, starring some of my good friends. I've made many episodes of Cribs, some of Frat houses, some of dorm rooms. The season is still in progress, but here's a small morsel of the Cribs Fall 2006 season.

Brooke's Take on Celebrity Gossip

While I wholeheartedly agree with Sarah that celebrity stardom has had a negative impact on our society, I can’t help but admit that I enjoy reading the tabloids, gossiping about who is dating who, or occasionally catching Entertainment Tonight. The truth is, I can’t control what I find to be enjoying, and even though most of you may agree with Sarah’s sentiments, there is a little bit of all of us that are intrigued by celebrities’ lives.

One day, I was having a discussion with my friend about how he finds celebrity gossip to be insignificant and an utter waste of time. Our conversation went something like this:

“Celebrity gossip is stupid,” he said.
“Did you hear what happened with K-Fed?” I asked him.

“No, tell me!” he replied.

“Wait a minute, you just said you don’t care about celebrity gossip, and now you want to know all about it!”
Interesting, don’t you think?

The truth is, there is not one SECOND that goes by that I think my obsession with Hollywood stars is meaningful, important and worthy of my attention. I wish I were this passionate about real-world news, politics, or finding a cure for cancer. But the truth is, I need to know where Anjolina Jolie is adopting her new child, why Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn split and the latest on TomKat. I’m being sarcastic, yes, but all my friends know that I am the girl to ask for the latest dirt on the celebs and all things entertainment. I guess in some sad way, I'm proud of that! But like the theme of my blog here, I love being entertained, and if reading is a crime, then guilty as charged!

To keep along with the theme of celebrity gossip, I started my own celebrity gossip column last semester for the school paper. Click on the articles below if you are interested. Whether you are willing to admit it or not, I know you’re tempted to click!

We are Time's Person of the Year!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

this was a real picture from google! we're famous!!! :)

Lifestyles of the Rich and... Who Cares?

Celebrities. We love 'em, we hate 'em, we just can't seem to live without 'em.
I was recently pondering our society's fascination with celebritydom, the lifetstyles of the rich and famous (this is where you can feel free to burst out singing the Good Charlotte song, "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous"), and came to the conclusion that it is not WE who are at fault; it is the media! Yes, media, that's you I'm talking about. You cannot walk through a grocery store, hair salon, or convenience store without mass media marketing in your face. George Clooney, Naomi Watts, Madonna, all famous names, all household discussions. Now, one might ask "How does this affect me and why is this necessarily a bad thing?" It's not a bad thing, per se. It is more of an out-of control phenomenon that has immersed itself in the minds of young and old alike.
For example, I participate in a mentorship program with the local middle school, spending about 5 hours per week with a little blonde 6th grade girl. This week, I got to her English class as the kids were writing down names of famous people they'd like to research in the library: George Washington, Derek Jeter, Rudy Giuliani, etc. Then I saw what my mentee wrote: Britney Spears, Eminem, J-Lo, and Anna Nicole Smith.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I asked my mentee what her reasons were for writing these names, to which she replied by telling me how they all are interesting people, and that she'd like to know why Anna Nicole Smith died from an overdose. I thought to myself how unfortunate it is that my young mentee, someone who should be so innocent and naive, is researching drug-induced deaths of trashy celebrities. I wanted to tell her that this is something she should not worry about, she should stick with the classy famous people and the true important historical figures. But that stuff doesn't sell tabloids, does it? The reason kids love celebrities is the same reason the older generation does: they're popular. Pick up any issue of Cosmo, and there is an extremely high chance that the woman on the cover is a famous person.
My mentee did not know better, she simply wanted to learn about the things her friends were probably discussing at the lunchtables, which is also probably the same thing they overheard their parents talking about over dinner. I learned a lot that day in mentoring. I learned the shallowness of many aspects of our culture, and if we only obsess over celebrities and forget the people who truly make a difference, then we all deserve to go back to middle school.


Borat Star Visits the BS Show!

After reading my school newspaper last semester, I noticed an article that read “New Borat Film Features Bearcat.” I immediately thought one thing. No, it wasn’t: how did I not know Sasha Baron Cohen went to BU, but rather, how do I get this guy on my show!

I decided to go to the most reliable and efficient contact source---Facebook, and messaged David Corcoran, one of the sweet gentlemen who expressed such kind words as one of the frat boys on the RV van in the movie (if you haven’t seen the movie, that was complete sarcasm). It took about 10 messages back and forth to finally convince David to come on the show, but once he confirmed, I couldn’t help but get excited to know that a real movie star was making his way on to my show! First David Corcoran, next Brad Pitt! That’s right! I’m thinking BIG!

This past Sunday on "The BS Show," my partner Sarah here was a visitor, and we filmed a “Help Send Us To LA” segment that will hopefully make its way to the blog shortly! STAY TUNED!

In the meanwhile, click on the link below to see the Borat episode which also features a very funny improv group! (Disregard all technical glitches and errors--this is BTV, not CNN! Cut me some slack here!)

Road Trip To Seinfeld!

Nothing was going to stop us from seeing Jerry Seinfeld live--not even a snow storm in Binghamton. Yup that's right, yet another reason to leave Upstate NY and head to LA!

Seinfeld was great! His comedic work has inspired me to do a little comedy bit of my own, so stay tuned for my "Top 5 Awkward Moments in Life" blog that will be coming later this week! I swear it will be original material!

Binghamton's Got Talent

As you guys can probably tell from my previous blogs, I love to entertain! But while I have visions of getting my own Hollywood star, I will be just as happy working in behind the scenes in the entertainment field! I mean who wants to deal with the paparazzi and the tabloid rumors anyway. I wouldn't want to take headlines away from Britney and Lindsay now!

Here at Binghamton University, I have tried my best efforts to provide students with plenty of entertainment. Besides my television show, I am currently coordinating a campus-wide, week-long talent show, "Binghamton's Got Talent," in which all the proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I've been handling the public relations with the local media, talking with businesses about sponsoring the event, advertising around campus, and coordinating each of the six shows. Currently, we already have a belly dancer, magician, juggling unicyclist and a puppet show!

Take a look at the commercial I created for the show! YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT! YES YOU ARE! YES YOU ARE! :)

My Cinematic Life, in a Nutshell

Alright, blog, you've waited long enough. I made a promise, and I'm going to keep it.
Are you ready?...
This is the part where I spill my guts and then tell you a little bit about myself.

On the other hand, let's just do the latter.

My name is Sarah Oren and I'm going to be a film editor. Goodness knows that we all have had our confusions about where we're going in life and what path is our "destiny." But who's to say that it hasn't been there under your nose the entire time? Since I was really young, I've been scrapbooking; family events, summer excursions, wild vacations, etc. This is the stuff of great albums. This brings me to my next point where I tell you how scrapbooking has affected my life. Through the painstaking hours spend cutting out paper and writing captions and glueing photos down, I've learned an invaluable skill about editing. I learned how to have patience with my creativity, how to make good artistic decisions, and how to present an appealing piece of work. I'm so thankful for my mother's frequent trips to AC Moore for scrapbook supplies, how could I have done without means for my craft?!

The next step in my ever-improving scrapbooking process? Movies. I began making video scrapbooks when I was of junior high school age, making fun simple Imovies (with my lovely Mac). I learned how much fun they were to create and how enjoyable they were to watch. I moved onto more elaborate projects, making short documentaries in high school, and often was able to utilize my video skills for class group projects. I've lost count of how many video scrapbooks and other movies I've made, but I'm sure the tally runs high. It is my passion, my hobby, my future. Upon admission to college, I put my moviemaking drive on the backburner and hoped that a run-of-the-mill Liberal Arts major would satisfy me. But it did not. Cinema is my passion, and to not spend my days working on that makes me feel empty. Looking back, I realize just how crucial those little scrapbooks were, for they guided me to where I'm at today: a future filmmaker.

My Claim to Fame: The BS Show

While I don’t normally like to boast about my accomplishments, that’s all about to change. Freshman year, I decided to start my own television show, “The BS Show.” Through my fame and fortune, I have stayed humble throughout—mostly because there’s no real fame or fortune. But I take pride in having a TV show that allows me to express my passion—celebrity gossip, New York sports, television and movie news.
When people come up to me and say, “Thank you Brooke, I didn’t know Britney was back with K-Fed,” it reminds me of how Mother Teresa felt when she helped make the world a better place.

But in all seriousness, the show is supposed to be entertaining! I will post a few of my favorite shows in this blog, starting with one that garnered the most popularity. In fact I still receive calls requesting that this student, Luke, come back on.

If a student wants to come on the show as a "visitor" to sit in the "visitor's chair," I am all for it. So when one student e-mailed me about coming on, I didn't realize until he showed up that he was a 40-year-old Napoleon Dynamite look-a-like! Unsure if I should allow him to come on, the marketing major in me realized he would make for great television. Take a look and see for yourself!

JibJab's 2006 Year in Review

Why I Want Us To Be The Underdog!!!

Ok…lets be real here. When you are favored to win, it’s no fun.

When you win, it’s expected. When you lose, it’s an embarrassment.

Who wants to deal with that?

That is why I am officially labeling us the “underdogs.” Now I have no idea who these other participants are, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that two Jewish girls from the Metro NY area aren’t the favorites to win. (If we are, sssshh! Don’t ruin this blog for me). And who doesn’t like rooting for the underdog?

So that is why, I proclaim Sarah and myself “underdogs” in this competition. When we win, it will shock the world. And when we lose, well…we don’t have to worry about that scenario!

So if you’re not family, friends, or stalkers of Sarah and me, than you’re probably thinking to yourself, who should I root for in this competition?

I say root for the underdog.

YouTube: the wave of the future

Every once in a while (and by that, I mean possibly 5 or more times per day), we come across a hilarious youtube link. Now for those who are not as internet savvy as us professional bloggers here, you might not frequent youtube that much. But you should. The viral videos posted on that site can not only be uplifting, but are inspiring, comedic, disgusting, and downright addictive. I must admit, I was somewhat intrigued with the concept of being able to post your own short films and/or movie clips from your camera with no guidelines- whatever floats your boat. I chose to hop on the YouTube bandwagon and begin my own account. Along the course of this JibJab blog experience, I will post some superfun links that either I have created OR that I personally find entertaining. This brings me to my next course of action. I am urging you to click this link here for a hysterical spoof of David Blaine, the magician whose insane tricks and insane personality cannot help but be made fun of. ENJOY! and stay tuned for more links...

Brooke & Sarah--The Beginning!

Now that I’ve given you the theatrical trailer to our potential movie in the making, its time to take you back to the beginning—when Sarah and Brooke’s wild adventure began!

I remember it as though it were yesterday. And by that, I mean it was yesterday that I remembered when we first met each other. It was at our annual “Thank God We Don’t Have to Eat Dining Hall Food Tonight” school newspaper dinner at a fancy shmancy restaurant, where by chance, I was sitting at a table with two open chairs. I recognized Sarah was with one of my friends from High School and I quickly told my friend to come over to the table, while boxing out potential suitors from taking the coveted two chairs.

Through chicken parmesan and penne ala vodka, Sarah and I clicked immediately! With her bubbly personality and my sarcasm, one might say it’s a match made in comic heaven! After discussing how I have a television show on campus, Sarah, a cinema major herself, wanted to take part in it. Currently she helps create BTV Cribs for my show, “The BS Show.”

And here we are, just a year later—with a chance to go to LA together, and I couldn’t think of a better person to go with! Well I guess when I really think about it…Brad Pitt would be nice…maybe Derek Jeter…no what am I doing! It’s Brooke and Sarah all the way baby!

I’m glad I saved those two chairs at the restaurant!


There's a First Time for Everything

Well world, today marks my first EVER blog post.
Not strictly for internet nerds anymore, this online spillage of inner emotions is the "cool" thing to do these days. I've given in, and you are about to hear why I am becoming o-so-trendy with this new blog site I've got going here. This blog (as you might be able to tell from our glorious title) is dedicated to sending my friend Brooke Schneider and me to Los Angeles, California. Confused? I would be, too.
Almost a month ago, Brooke and I entered a national contest to Job Shadow the makers of Little did we know that we'd get a phone call weeks later saying that we've been chosen as 1 of 5 finalists out of 100's of groups that applied! 'Flattered' would be an understatement of our emotions at the time of the phone call. I'd say we were more on the very of elated/uber excited for this incredible opportunity. And this is where the blog comes in. For three weeks, she and I will have to blog in to this site and enter our deepest, innermost secrets (or just a joke of the day), and the finalist with the most hits to his or her blog page WINS the free trip to LA to meet the minds of JibJab. Simply stated, by reading this blog page you are making Brooke's and my life so much closer to being perfect. So take a minute, browse through our page, feel free to smile and/or chuckle, and send it to ALL your friends! This is offically the end of my first blog post, I think Blog and I are in for a wonderful relationship.

Love Always,
