A couple of weeks ago, we linked to an anonymous YouTube video of two girls pretending to be the KCRA morning-news team of Walt Gray, Deirdre Fitzpatrick, Adrienne Bankert and Eileen Javora.
The folks at Channel 3 loved the video. As one newsroom wag told us, "Those kids got our station branding down cold." (Yes, the KCRA brainwashing is affecting our young.)
Anyway, we've found out who "KCRA's New Anchor Team" is: 10-year-old Samantha Justice and 8-year-old Sarah Allen, of Sacramento.
These media savvy kids are all over YouTube. Samantha has her own page, where she posts vlogging homages to such Disney Channel faves as "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody," "Hannah Montana" and, of course, "High School Musical." Check out Samantha's page here.
Samantha tells us she's been uploading videos for a month now. She's produced 20, in between doing homework and chores at home.
"I want to be a singer, actress and write screenplays," she says. "I'm writing one right now."
Sarah, her acting partner, says she just follows Samantha's directorial advice. "She wants to make a movie, but I don't know how she's going to do it."
OK, all you independent film producers out there with money to burn, step up and fund Samantha's project. Hey, people always talk about capturing the younger demographic. How much younger can you get?
