0:01:020:01:04

And on today's blockbusting show, all of this...

0:01:060:01:09

There's a surprise in store for two Harry Potter fans

0:01:100:01:12

when a celebrity turns up to babysit.

0:01:120:01:15

Oh, my gosh.

0:01:150:01:16

It was surreal.

0:01:160:01:17

Discover how animation really works as we go behind the scenes

0:01:170:01:20

with ParaNorman.

0:01:200:01:22

He doesn't just have one face, he has thousands of faces.

0:01:220:01:25

And find out why Michael Sheen of Tron

0:01:270:01:29

and Alice In Wonderland fame is monkeying about.

0:01:290:01:31

Ooh-ooh-ah-ah-ah!

0:01:310:01:34

What do you think about that, Mr Efron?

0:01:340:01:36

Awesome.

0:01:360:01:37

Definitely awesome.

0:01:370:01:38

It's kind of crazy and...awesome.

0:01:380:01:41

100% crazy and awesome.

0:01:410:01:44

Now if you were making a movie, would you be ready for your DIY

0:01:440:01:47

blockbuster surprise?

0:01:470:01:49

Well, would you?

0:01:490:01:51

This is part one.

0:01:510:01:52

Action!

0:01:550:01:56

We're giving groups of film-makers the chance to make a short film...

0:01:560:01:59

Ruff!

0:01:590:02:00

..armed with just a camera, a script and some home-made props.

0:02:000:02:04

But little do they know they're in for a big surprise.

0:02:040:02:08

You didn't know I was coming?

0:02:080:02:09

Pshh!

0:02:090:02:10

When we give them something spectacular

0:02:100:02:13

to turn their home movie into a DIY Blockbuster.

0:02:130:02:16

On the shot list, the first one is the wide shot...

0:02:190:02:22

Libby, Harley, Connie, Maddie,

0:02:220:02:24

Gus and Eva are making a thriller.

0:02:240:02:26

There's a grandad and he lives with his granddaughter.

0:02:260:02:29

I'm going away for a while.

0:02:290:02:31

He tells her that he's going to the Amazon

0:02:310:02:34

because he wants to be a spy again.

0:02:340:02:36

Here is where I'm going.

0:02:360:02:38

The team think they are going to be playing

0:02:380:02:40

all of the parts in their film themselves but none of them

0:02:400:02:42

look exactly convincing as an elderly grandparent.

0:02:420:02:45

We still need to figure out who is Grandad.

0:02:450:02:48

What they don't know is that they're in for a DIY Blockbuster surprise.

0:02:480:02:52

We've arranged for a world-famous actor to star in their film

0:02:520:02:55

who will be perfect

0:02:550:02:57

for the part of Grandad.

0:02:570:02:58

Quiet please, action!

0:02:580:02:59

There's some other shopping you need to do.

0:02:590:03:02

With no idea of what's about to happen,

0:03:020:03:03

the team are well into filming with Harley taking

0:03:030:03:06

the role of Grandad, when suddenly the doorbell rings.

0:03:060:03:10

Hello, Ian McKellen. Hello.

0:03:170:03:19

Hello!

0:03:190:03:21

Yes, their DIY Blockbuster surprise really is Ian McKellen,

0:03:210:03:24

star of The Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit, and the X-Men films.

0:03:240:03:29

As soon as he came through the door I was just like...

0:03:290:03:32

-Hello.

-Hello!

0:03:330:03:35

There's Gandalf, and I was like, "Gasp! It's Gandalf."

0:03:350:03:38

It was just so amazing.

0:03:380:03:40

Me and Harley looked at each other we were like, "Yes!"

0:03:400:03:43

-Angus, nice to meet you. I like your hat.

-Thanks.

0:03:430:03:45

Properly, properly wowed up.

0:03:450:03:48

-You didn't know I was coming?

-No.

-No!

0:03:480:03:50

It was a bit nervous coming in, as you can imagine.

0:03:500:03:52

-Is this is where I live? ALL:

-Yeah.

0:03:520:03:55

-I'm your granddaughter.

-Thank you.

0:03:550:03:57

Ian's keen to get straight into character.

0:03:570:03:59

Now do you suppose it was your mother or your father

0:03:590:04:03

who was my child?

0:04:030:04:05

I asked Lucy...

0:04:050:04:08

HE LAUGHS

0:04:080:04:10

..was she the daughter of my son

0:04:100:04:12

or of my daughter, and she wasn't...

0:04:120:04:16

She hadn't thought about that.

0:04:160:04:18

-It doesn't really matter.

-Father.

-Well, it matters to me.

0:04:180:04:21

Father.

0:04:210:04:22

So I had a son and he was your father.

0:04:220:04:25

-Lovely.

-OK.

0:04:250:04:27

With a better understanding of Grandad's character, filming begins.

0:04:280:04:32

Lucy, there's something I need to tell you.

0:04:320:04:35

I'm going to go away for a while.

0:04:350:04:37

Ian's performance was, like, perfect.

0:04:390:04:41

It was really good. It was amazing.

0:04:410:04:43

But...but why, Grandad?

0:04:430:04:45

Because I'm old and I need something to do.

0:04:450:04:47

I was just looking at the thing and just going, "Yes."

0:04:470:04:51

I'll miss you, Grandad.

0:04:510:04:52

He acted like he was actually her grandad.

0:04:540:04:57

In fact, Ian's acting is so convincing, it's causing confusion.

0:04:570:05:01

Don't move! Tell us where the USB stick is.

0:05:010:05:05

I thought that he was actually really scared.

0:05:050:05:08

-Where have you hidden it?!

-I've no idea what you're talking about.

0:05:080:05:11

And I didn't mean to scare him or anything.

0:05:110:05:13

He really convinced me that it was real.

0:05:130:05:16

Lucy, don't forget the shopping list.

0:05:160:05:19

Ian may be a world-class actor but he still needs direction

0:05:190:05:22

and the team have forgotten to tell him

0:05:220:05:24

what he's meant to be doing in this scene.

0:05:240:05:26

-That was a shambles.

-Yeah.

0:05:260:05:29

You've got to...got to tell the actors what to do.

0:05:290:05:33

Maddie and I didn't know that we were in the shot.

0:05:330:05:35

We had to tell him, like, what to do, where to be.

0:05:350:05:39

So where am I standing roughly?

0:05:390:05:41

Just stand there and just go stuff everything in.

0:05:410:05:44

If I had any questions, they listened and gave me a clear answer,

0:05:440:05:48

so I felt they adopted me as part of the team and I relaxed.

0:05:480:05:52

Still to come on DIY Blockbuster part two -

0:05:520:05:55

could there be another movie star at the door?

0:05:550:05:57

And we think, "Oh, it might be another really famous person."

0:05:570:06:00

The team get a lesson in the finer points of film-making.

0:06:000:06:03

Did I have my glasses on or off? At what point did I remove them?

0:06:030:06:07

And disaster strikes in the Amazon.

0:06:070:06:09

The battery ran out!

0:06:090:06:11

..proud of you. What?

0:06:110:06:12

Ian McKellen - I'm thinking Magneto, I'm thinking superpowers,

0:06:160:06:20

I'm thinking teleportation!

0:06:200:06:22

Whoa, that was awesome.

0:06:250:06:27

If you guys could have one superpower, what would it be?

0:06:270:06:31

I think I'm going to have to go with Batman.

0:06:310:06:32

-My favourite superhero...

-Catwoman!

-..is Catwoman!

0:06:320:06:36

Invisibility.

0:06:360:06:37

Rrrar!

0:06:370:06:38

I think I'd like to have telekinesis which is

0:06:380:06:40

when you move things with your brain.

0:06:400:06:42

It would be amazing to be able to be invisible in any room.

0:06:420:06:45

I would love to shape-shift. I think that would be awesome.

0:06:450:06:49

Superman because he can go from a geek, which I think

0:06:490:06:53

I am a little bit of a geek, to being a hunk who can fly.

0:06:530:06:57

One superpower? Can I be like Superman and have all of them?

0:06:570:07:00

-THUDDING VOICE:

0:08:490:08:50

Now, what would you do if your favourite movie heroine

0:08:500:08:54

turned up at your door step? Would you scream?

0:08:540:08:56

Would you SHOUT? Would you shake it all about?

0:08:560:08:58

Well, we're about to find out what happened

0:08:580:09:00

when one lucky Cinemaniac had a visit from a very special someone.

0:09:000:09:04

This is Isabelle and her little sister Scarlett.

0:09:090:09:12

Their mum's getting ready to go out for the night and they're waiting

0:09:120:09:15

for the baby-sitter to turn up.

0:09:150:09:17

All sounds pretty, well, ordinary right?

0:09:170:09:20

Wrong!

0:09:200:09:22

Because tonight's baby-sitter is anything but ordinary.

0:09:220:09:26

I think I'm one of the biggest Harry Potter fans in the world.

0:09:260:09:29

My absolute favourite character in Harry Potter has got to be

0:09:290:09:33

Ginny Weasley, played by Bonnie Wright,

0:09:330:09:36

cos she's got red hair like me.

0:09:360:09:38

Any idea who it is yet?

0:09:380:09:39

Oh, I love a good surprise.

0:09:400:09:42

Hello! Hi, I'm Bonnie.

0:09:440:09:47

Yep, it really is Bonnie Wright.

0:09:470:09:49

When I opened the front door it was just amazing.

0:09:490:09:52

For one moment, I just didn't think it was all true.

0:09:520:09:55

Oh, my Gosh!

0:09:550:09:56

It just suddenly hit me.

0:09:560:09:58

-Nice to meet you. Can I come in?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:09:580:10:00

Can you show me around?

0:10:000:10:02

Hi, nice to meet you, Bonnie.

0:10:050:10:07

And you as well. Hi, it's a bit of a surprise for you.

0:10:070:10:11

Uh, yes!

0:10:110:10:12

I was like, "What?!"

0:10:120:10:13

It was surreal, really, having Bonnie Wright in my house.

0:10:130:10:17

It was amazing.

0:10:170:10:18

Right, I'm going to go now,

0:10:180:10:20

-if there's any problems please give me a call.

-Right, yeah.

0:10:200:10:22

-It'll be good.

-All right, bye-bye, girls. Be good, love you.

0:10:220:10:25

Yeah, yeah, Mum, bye-bye!

0:10:250:10:27

See you soon.

0:10:270:10:28

With Mum out of the picture, the girls waste no time getting cosy

0:10:280:10:32

with Bonnie to watch the Harry Potter films, of course.

0:10:320:10:35

I'm thinking good time to get some insider info, girls.

0:10:360:10:40

Does it actually feel weird to watch yourself play these things

0:10:400:10:43

and so like see you growing taller and things?

0:10:430:10:45

Yeah, it is very weird. I'll tell you a fun fact about this scene -

0:10:450:10:49

I was exactly the age of nine and 3/4 on platform nine and 3/4.

0:10:490:10:53

That's so cool.

0:10:530:10:55

How quickly the venom of the Basilisk penetrates the body.

0:10:550:10:58

'Oh, I love this scene.'

0:10:580:11:00

It was so cold I had hot water bottles

0:11:000:11:02

and heaters hidden underneath my clothing.

0:11:020:11:05

I'm alive. THEY GIGGLE

0:11:050:11:07

Phew!

0:11:070:11:08

-These are always good fun, obviously, the Great Hall scenes.

-Yeah.

0:11:080:11:11

But all the food used to sit there for ages and ages,

0:11:110:11:14

so slowly all of the food would start to smell as we filmed.

0:11:140:11:17

Did you feel, like, any sadness when it was over?

0:11:190:11:22

Yeah, yeah. Obviously it had been such a long part

0:11:220:11:24

of all of our lives and all of us sort of grew up together,

0:11:240:11:27

so it was like finishing school

0:11:270:11:28

and worrying that you're not going to see your friends again.

0:11:280:11:31

What was really fun about this scene was, like, doing the full circle.

0:11:310:11:34

When I first started filming, I filmed on platform nine and 3/4

0:11:340:11:38

and my last scene that we filmed was back on platform nine and 3/4.

0:11:380:11:42

That's the end.

0:11:420:11:43

Oh...

0:11:430:11:44

So I think now it's probably bedtime.

0:11:440:11:47

What do you usually do before bed?

0:11:470:11:48

We usually we have big chocolate chip cookies.

0:11:480:11:51

LAUGHING: Oh, really?!

0:11:510:11:52

And hot milk.

0:11:520:11:54

Nice try, Isabelle, but bedtime it is.

0:11:540:11:57

Do you mind reading us a story before we go to bed?

0:11:570:12:00

I wonder what story we should read.

0:12:000:12:02

Ah, I know what you're up to. Stringing it all out, clever.

0:12:020:12:06

"Life at the Burrow was as different as possible

0:12:060:12:08

"from life at Privet Drive. The Dursleys..."

0:12:080:12:10

It's not every day you have a Harry Potter star

0:12:100:12:12

actually reading Harry Potter to you.

0:12:120:12:14

It's just amazing that she was in my house.

0:12:140:12:16

I'll, like, treasure the place where she sat on my sofa.

0:12:160:12:19

Now I want to sit there all the time.

0:12:190:12:22

I'm like, "This is where Bonnie Wright sat."

0:12:220:12:24

"Harry heard from Hogwarts one..."

0:12:240:12:26

And it looks like the story is doing the trick.

0:12:260:12:28

Night, girls, sleep tight.

0:12:280:12:30

It was one of the best experiences I'll probably ever have

0:12:320:12:35

and I'll definitely cherish the memories forever.

0:12:350:12:37

Cool.

0:12:370:12:39

Hard work writing all those Harry Potter books.

0:12:400:12:43

Hard work writing a movie too, especially a good one.

0:12:430:12:46

We decided to put two of our favourite writers

0:12:460:12:49

to the Writer Roulette test.

0:12:490:12:52

This is Laurence Rickard and this is Ben Willbond.

0:12:520:12:55

They're the writers behind the Shakespeare movie Bill.

0:12:550:12:58

You been before?

0:12:580:13:00

No, first time.

0:13:000:13:02

Oh, it's nice. Don't steal anything.

0:13:020:13:06

We're challenging Laurence and Ben to come up with a top movie plot

0:13:060:13:08

based on four completely random story ingredients.

0:13:080:13:13

It's time for...

0:13:130:13:14

And go.

0:13:160:13:18

Writer Roulette. OK, we're on a beach.

0:13:180:13:20

It's a very, very rocky beach and, uh...

0:13:200:13:23

BUZZER

0:13:230:13:25

Hiding underneath one of the rocks on the beach is a spider. It's been

0:13:250:13:28

contaminated in a nuclear accident and it is growing at an incredible

0:13:280:13:32

rate so it's now already the size of a man.

0:13:320:13:35

It's tremendously hungry but it can't find any bugs to eat

0:13:350:13:37

-so it's had to resort to...

-BUZZER

0:13:370:13:40

Eating pineapples. And the only thing that will stop it

0:13:400:13:42

growing much bigger and threatening the city that it lives next to

0:13:420:13:46

is feeding it pineapples, but there's a pineapple shortage.

0:13:460:13:50

BUZZER

0:13:500:13:51

So they have to invent a hydroponic pineapple-growing

0:13:510:13:54

solution which is powered by the greatest source of electricity

0:13:540:13:57

-known to man.

-Which is...

0:13:570:13:59

BOTH: Lightning. Of course.

0:13:590:14:01

Nice one, guys.

0:14:010:14:03

Still to come on Cinemaniacs...

0:14:040:14:07

We head behind the scenes with ParaNorman for some insider secrets.

0:14:070:14:11

Everyone in the real world thinks I'm a freak.

0:14:110:14:14

We put our very own super actor Michael Sheen

0:14:140:14:17

through his paces as he tries to be the best ape in town.

0:14:170:14:20

Ooh-ooh-ah-ah!

0:14:200:14:22

And want to know how to walk up walls? Who doesn't!

0:14:220:14:25

There we have our superhero.

0:14:250:14:28

But first, it's part two of DIY Blockbuster.

0:14:280:14:31

Action.

0:14:340:14:36

Lucy, there's something I need to tell you.

0:14:370:14:39

Six movie-makers have been given world-famous actor

0:14:390:14:42

Ian McKellen to star in their movie.

0:14:420:14:44

It's Gandalf and I was like, "Gasp!"

0:14:440:14:46

And his acting ability has blown them away.

0:14:460:14:49

He really convinced me that it was real.

0:14:490:14:52

Now look, I've got my map and the six coordinates.

0:14:520:14:57

The team are filming the same scene several times from different

0:14:570:15:00

angles so it can be edited together later, but this is causing problems.

0:15:000:15:05

I've got an awkward question - I had my glasses on, didn't I?

0:15:050:15:08

And I think at some point I took them off and put them in my pocket.

0:15:080:15:12

-Yeah.

-And I don't know when that was.

0:15:120:15:14

-Continuity.

-Continuity.

0:15:140:15:16

We had to look at the camera to see if his glasses were on or off.

0:15:160:15:22

Did I have my glasses on or off? At what point did I remove them?

0:15:220:15:26

-Oh, you take them off.

-Yeah!

0:15:260:15:28

I think it was exactly the same when the SWAT team comes in.

0:15:280:15:31

Is one of you doing continuity?

0:15:310:15:33

I think we should have had someone a job

0:15:330:15:36

so they were, like, looking at and observing every scene properly.

0:15:360:15:39

-Were those black things there before?

-Yes.

0:15:390:15:42

That was the lesson that they learned,

0:15:420:15:44

that continuity is very, very important,

0:15:440:15:46

otherwise it's difficult to cut the thing together afterwards.

0:15:460:15:49

Please don't go.

0:15:490:15:51

No, no. I have to go, Lucy, you see?

0:15:510:15:53

After another McKellen masterpiece, the team are making good progress.

0:15:530:15:57

Grandad, why are you being so weird?

0:15:570:16:00

-DOORBELL RINGS

-When the doorbell causes some excitement.

0:16:000:16:03

And we think, "Oh, it might be another really famous person."

0:16:030:16:07

Is one not enough?

0:16:070:16:08

-Hello.

-Hello.

0:16:080:16:10

It's a microwave.

0:16:100:16:12

Ah, yes, that famous actor - Mike Ro-wave.

0:16:120:16:15

He was just like, "Uh, I've just got a microwave."

0:16:150:16:18

We thought you were Bilbo Bobbins.

0:16:180:16:20

It's Baggins, not Bobbins.

0:16:200:16:22

Maddie went, "Oh, it's Bilbo Boggins!"

0:16:220:16:25

And everyone just started laughing.

0:16:250:16:27

THEY LAUGH

0:16:270:16:29

Despite the distraction,

0:16:300:16:31

Ian's impressed with the speed the team are working at.

0:16:310:16:33

Shall I tell you what, I have never worked

0:16:330:16:36

so fast in my life, it's brilliant.

0:16:360:16:39

I always want you directing my films.

0:16:390:16:41

In fact, they're already onto their final scene.

0:16:420:16:45

What you need to do is film Maddie and then go onto them.

0:16:450:16:48

Oh, I'm getting cold.

0:16:480:16:50

And they are using the wet weather to their advantage.

0:16:500:16:53

It's was a rainforest so it was good that it was rainy cos it

0:16:530:16:56

kind of got that little effect of... Made it a little bit more realistic.

0:16:560:17:00

We did get really wet though.

0:17:000:17:02

But is it a good idea to keep your star waiting around in the rain?

0:17:020:17:05

Well, I was a bit cold and I was a bit damp but then so were they

0:17:050:17:09

and they weren't complaining so I didn't think I should.

0:17:090:17:12

Action!

0:17:120:17:13

Just moments away from finishing their movie, there's a hitch.

0:17:130:17:17

I escaped.

0:17:170:17:18

Oh, the battery ran out!

0:17:180:17:20

Battery.

0:17:200:17:21

But nothing a spare battery can't fix.

0:17:210:17:25

There's someone here to see you.

0:17:250:17:26

I escaped. Oh!

0:17:280:17:31

-Yeah!

-Well done.

0:17:330:17:35

They finally manage to get the last shot, so that's a wrap.

0:17:350:17:38

It was such a good day. I don't think I'm ever going to forget it.

0:17:380:17:43

-ALL:

-Thank you.

0:17:430:17:45

Thank you all.

0:17:450:17:46

I just can't believe that he would take the time to work with us.

0:17:460:17:50

He's just an amazing man.

0:17:500:17:52

Thank you very much and I'll see you at the premier.

0:17:520:17:54

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-Thank you. Bye.

0:17:540:17:57

So what was the best bit of this magical day?

0:17:570:18:00

We met Ian and he...he was in our film!

0:18:000:18:05

You can check out the teams finished movie on the CBBC website.

0:18:050:18:09

So this is where I give you guys three top tips for you

0:18:120:18:15

to make your own videos.

0:18:150:18:16

Tip one - get yourself a phone or a camera.

0:18:160:18:18

This might be quite an obvious one, but believe me,

0:18:180:18:21

I've done it so many times.

0:18:210:18:22

I've pressed stop when I've actually meant to press start.

0:18:220:18:25

Tip number two - you need to make sure you have a memory card

0:18:250:18:28

and that there's no embarrassing selfies on.

0:18:280:18:30

Oh, no, that's Photoshopped, I swear.

0:18:320:18:34

There are so many different memory cards out there -

0:18:340:18:36

there's SD cards, there's CF cards, LOL, WBU...

0:18:360:18:40

Actually, hold on a minute, no, they're not all memory cards.

0:18:400:18:43

Tip number three - you're going to need to get yourself

0:18:430:18:45

some juice and charge up the camera. Ah...

0:18:450:18:48

And that's it for today's top tips.

0:18:560:19:00

Now this.

0:19:000:19:01

Let's head behind the scenes with ParaNorman.

0:19:030:19:06

-Peace, man.

-Totally.

0:19:080:19:11

As you were, soldier.

0:19:110:19:13

Sorry, yes, sir.

0:19:130:19:15

My name's Sam Fell, I'm an animation director.

0:19:150:19:18

Everyone in the real world thinks I'm a freak, and you know what?

0:19:180:19:21

Maybe they're right.

0:19:210:19:22

I'll tell you a little secret about Norman.

0:19:220:19:24

He doesn't just have one face, he has thousands of faces.

0:19:240:19:29

Thousands of faces that give him millions of expressions.

0:19:290:19:33

And how that works is...

0:19:330:19:35

we can take his face off and then what we can do

0:19:350:19:38

is put on other faces.

0:19:380:19:41

So this face was for when he was cleaning his teeth.

0:19:410:19:45

Ahhh.

0:19:470:19:50

The thing that gave us the most incredible

0:19:500:19:52

range of expressions is that we split his faces in half.

0:19:520:19:55

So we were able to change his mouth...

0:19:550:19:58

..separately from his eyebrows.

0:19:590:20:04

And then, we had an incredible little team of people painting out

0:20:040:20:09

that line frame by frame so it looked like one face again.

0:20:090:20:13

Amazing. Apparently, Norman had over 8,000 faces

0:20:150:20:19

and was one of the first animated models to be

0:20:190:20:21

printed on a 3-D printer. How cool is that?

0:20:210:20:25

Now, have you ever wanted to do a bit of wall walking?

0:20:250:20:28

You have? Then it's time to meet...

0:20:280:20:30

Mike Tucker, special effects expert extraordinaire, here to show you how

0:20:300:20:34

to create special effects Hollywood style in the Secrets Of Movie-making.

0:20:340:20:39

Today we're going to show you how to walk up walls.

0:20:390:20:42

Well, how to make it look like you're doing it, obviously.

0:20:420:20:46

So grab a couple of friends and let's get started.

0:20:460:20:48

This is to create an illusion of you walking up the side of a wall.

0:20:480:20:54

This effect was used in the original Batman.

0:20:540:20:56

Holy smoke!

0:20:560:20:57

How do you think the easiest way of doing that is?

0:20:570:21:00

Green screen.

0:21:000:21:01

No, we're not going to use green screen. There's no fun in that.

0:21:010:21:04

What we're going to is we're going to pretend that the floor is

0:21:040:21:08

actually the wall so everything gets tilted on its side.

0:21:080:21:11

And you're going to need some big bits of cardboard,

0:21:140:21:17

blue paint, tape, some white paper and a skipping rope.

0:21:170:21:21

Step one - you need to make your background by taping

0:21:230:21:25

all your big bits of cardboard together to make one big piece,

0:21:250:21:29

and then painting it blue to look like the sky.

0:21:290:21:32

If you're feeling creative, you can make some clouds to go on it too

0:21:330:21:36

using your white paper, cut out to look like clouds, obviously.

0:21:360:21:40

Step two - get your camera ready by turning it sideways.

0:21:410:21:44

you might want to use a tripod for this.

0:21:440:21:46

And if the camera is on its side and your acting is up to it,

0:21:460:21:50

then it should look like you're hauling yourself up the wall,

0:21:500:21:54

whereas in fact you're just walking along on floor level.

0:21:540:21:57

Step three - put on a superhero costume

0:21:570:21:59

or get someone else to put it on so you can all have a good laugh.

0:21:590:22:03

Ha-ha-ha!

0:22:030:22:04

There we have our superhero.

0:22:040:22:06

'Holy smoke!'

0:22:060:22:08

Step four - get your superhero to hold one end of the skipping rope

0:22:080:22:11

and pull it tight.

0:22:110:22:13

And for a finishing touch, try tying a bit of cotton to the cape

0:22:130:22:17

so when you pull on it, it looks like it's blowing in the wind.

0:22:170:22:19

And that, my friends, is how you walk the walk.

0:22:220:22:25

Pretty cool, eh? Someone else who knows a thing or two

0:22:280:22:31

about walking up walls is Spider-Man, but is that the best

0:22:310:22:34

thing about being Spider-Man or is it having your very own web shooter?

0:22:340:22:39

Let's ask someone who knows. Mr Andrew Garfield, take it away.

0:22:400:22:44

Obviously the swinging and getting in the suit,

0:22:440:22:46

and getting to throw yourself around New York City is amazing,

0:22:460:22:50

but what really I think satisfies that deeper part of you

0:22:500:22:54

and the deeper part of Peter Parker is that you're serving

0:22:540:22:57

something greater and you're protecting people from bad forces.

0:22:570:23:03

That's what superheroes do, they protect us from bad forces,

0:23:030:23:06

especially if they have a web shooter.

0:23:060:23:09

It's now time to meet our very own Cinemaniac superhero.

0:23:090:23:12

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's...

0:23:120:23:16

The star of Alice In Wonderland,

0:23:170:23:19

Tron and Twilight,

0:23:190:23:21

he is Michael Sheen, super actor!

0:23:210:23:24

My challenge for today is just to monkey about. Yep, that's right.

0:23:270:23:31

I simply have to dress up in this monkey outfit

0:23:310:23:34

and try to convince this lot

0:23:340:23:36

that I am the best monkey actor.

0:23:360:23:38

Except I'm up against Aidan, a professional primate performer.

0:23:380:23:41

He's one of the best in the business

0:23:410:23:43

and he'll be going head-to-head with me in...

0:23:430:23:46

'But first I have to get covered in sticky stuff.'

0:23:500:23:52

I am getting prepared for what's called a skull cap.

0:23:520:23:56

I wear that inside the ape suit

0:23:560:24:00

so that my head's not rattling around inside.

0:24:000:24:02

'You might think this looks weird

0:24:020:24:04

'but wait till you see what else I'm wearing under my monkey suit.

0:24:040:24:08

'Do my muscles look big in this?'

0:24:080:24:10

I knew there was something I forgot to do - I forgot to shave my legs.

0:24:100:24:13

-As you do the step, try to lead with the elbow.

-Yeah.

0:24:150:24:19

'There's just time for Aiden to give me

0:24:190:24:21

'a quick masterclass in monkey movement.'

0:24:210:24:23

What makes for a good ape actor?

0:24:230:24:25

The ability to put up with not being able to see very well,

0:24:250:24:28

not being able to breathe very well,

0:24:280:24:30

and being able to put up with quite high levels of heat.

0:24:300:24:33

So how's it looking?

0:24:330:24:35

'He's just trying to put me off.

0:24:350:24:37

'Whoa, steady with the eyeliner. Monkey contacts in.'

0:24:370:24:40

Push now, push it in.

0:24:400:24:41

'I'm starting to wonder if there's a bit more to this challenge

0:24:410:24:44

'than just putting on a fancy dress costume

0:24:440:24:46

'and jumping around in the garden, but I can't let Aidan know that.'

0:24:460:24:49

I'm sure he'll be very good because he's an absolutely first-class actor

0:24:490:24:53

but at the same time, I think it will be quite hard.

0:24:530:24:56

The skin texture feels really amazing.

0:24:560:24:59

'Right, heads on, let's get into character.'

0:24:590:25:03

I remember when I first performed Shakespeare, I was Henry V.

0:25:030:25:07

'OK, maybe not.

0:25:070:25:09

'Think bananas, think jungle, think itchy armpits.'

0:25:090:25:13

It's time for the challenge!

0:25:130:25:15

Here I come. I'm starting casual, like it's quite normal for me

0:25:180:25:22

to be monkeying about in an English country garden.

0:25:220:25:25

All I need to do is convince five out of the eight judges

0:25:260:25:29

I'm the best ape.

0:25:290:25:32

Whoa there! Oh, he's just showing off.

0:25:320:25:34

Time to show them what I can do.

0:25:370:25:38

Check this out, guys -

0:25:390:25:42

walking,

0:25:420:25:43

turning a corner...

0:25:430:25:45

and sitting down!

0:25:450:25:47

Exhausting, but I think they like it.

0:25:470:25:50

Oi, get off!

0:25:500:25:52

Yeah, yeah, never mind the camera, Aidan.

0:25:520:25:55

Oh, it's getting quite hot in here.

0:25:550:25:56

Hopefully I've done enough to impress the judges though.

0:25:560:25:59

You couldn't tell that there were people underneath them.

0:25:590:26:03

I found it interesting but quite scary at the same time.

0:26:030:26:08

I thought they looked really realistic and quite scary.

0:26:080:26:13

It's time for the verdict!

0:26:130:26:15

So who's voting for me, Michael Sheen, super actor,

0:26:160:26:19

AKA the orang-utan?

0:26:190:26:21

What, one banana? I mean, one vote.

0:26:210:26:24

Which means...

seven votes for Aidan as the most convincing primate!

I choose the gorilla cos he's quite boisterous

0:26:280:26:31

and I think that's what they're like in the wild.

0:26:310:26:33

He, like, interacted with the judges,

0:26:330:26:35

like, running towards them and stuff.

0:26:350:26:38

I chose the orang-utan cos it was more relaxed

0:26:380:26:40

whereas the gorilla was a bit too active.

0:26:400:26:44

Today's challenge started with me monkeying around

0:26:440:26:47

but it ended up with my orang-utan playing second banana

0:26:470:26:51

to Aidan's gorilla, which means that today,

0:26:510:26:54

Michael Sheen, super actor, has failed.

0:26:540:26:57

Duhbrain is in the book but he's not in the film,

0:27:170:27:20

0:27:200:27:21

SHE LAUGHS

0:27:210:27:23

And can Michael Sheen, super actor, fool his mum

0:27:230:27:25
