Hello, everyone. I'm Oli White and coming right up we've got

0:00:010:00:04

a massive helping of nonstop movie mayhem because I'm one

0:00:040:00:09

and you are one, let's say it together - this is Cinemaniacs.

0:00:090:00:13

Team, take it away.

0:00:130:00:16

Action.

0:00:160:00:18

# Want to ride your bike across the face of the moon?

0:00:180:00:20

# Levitate your house with a bunch of balloons?

0:00:200:00:23

# Feel zero gravitation?

0:00:230:00:24

# A robot transformation?

0:00:240:00:25

# You're a Cinemaniac

0:00:250:00:27

# Can you tell a lie that is the length of your nose?

0:00:270:00:30

# Or defrost a heart you accidentally froze?

0:00:300:00:32

# Want a bottomless case?

0:00:320:00:34

# Or a squid for a face?

0:00:340:00:35

# You're a Cinemaniac

0:00:350:00:37

# Do you long to hear the roar of an extinct dinosaur?

0:00:370:00:40

# To explore the flora in your very own Pandora?

0:00:400:00:42

# Feel the urge to sing on a quest for the Ring?

0:00:420:00:45

# To escape from a clone or to be home alone?

0:00:450:00:49

# Then roll out the red carpet And turn down the lights

0:00:490:00:51

# Grab yourself a seat and hold on tight

0:00:510:00:54

# We're mad about movies

0:00:540:00:56

# We're crazy for film

0:00:560:00:57

# We're cinemania, cinemania, Cinemaniacs. #

0:00:570:01:02

Are you ready for some marvellous movie mayhem?

0:01:040:01:06

Well, this is where the magic starts.

0:01:060:01:09

Coming up, we hear all about brand-new movie Big Hero 6.

0:01:090:01:13

Here's the best part!

0:01:130:01:14

There's more secrets of movie making

0:01:160:01:18

when we show you how to create your own ghost.

0:01:180:01:21

SCREAMING

0:01:210:01:23

And Michael Sheen, super actor, takes on a new challenge

0:01:230:01:26

but will he hit his mark?

0:01:260:01:28

Oh, that was close.

0:01:280:01:30

What do you think about that, Gemma?

0:01:310:01:33

I think it's brilliant.

0:01:330:01:34

Yeah, I'd definitely have to agree with that.

0:01:340:01:37

I always like that stuff where you don't even speak,

0:01:370:01:39

you're just doing all the funny sound effects like going,

0:01:390:01:41

"Aah-ooh-ee!"

0:01:410:01:43

OK, let's try and do this next bit without speaking.

0:01:430:01:46

Aah-ooh-ee! There's me getting a surprise,

0:01:460:01:50

a DIY-blockbuster surprise. Here's part one.

0:01:500:01:53

-Action.

-We're giving groups of filmmakers the chance

0:01:570:02:00

-to make a short film.

-Woof!

0:02:000:02:01

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

0:02:010:02:05

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

0:02:060:02:09

You didn't know I was coming?

0:02:090:02:12

..when we give them something spectacular

0:02:120:02:15

to turn their home movie into a DIY blockbuster.

0:02:150:02:18

Amariah, Joshua, Husnain, Nishant, Tashinga and Tyreik

0:02:220:02:26

are making an action movie.

0:02:260:02:28

-Jet packs, parachutes...

-Explosions.

0:02:280:02:32

But it's an action movie with a difference, it's a silent movie.

0:02:320:02:36

It's the first time we've made a movie without words,

0:02:360:02:38

so it's quite hard.

0:02:380:02:39

It's about two twins robbing a jewellery store.

0:02:390:02:42

So when they fly away in their jet packs, one of them

0:02:440:02:47

lands in the prison yard, and the other one lands on the ship.

0:02:470:02:51

And they end up in the same prison cell.

0:02:510:02:54

-Action.

-Our team are shooting their movie on their modern day

0:02:540:02:57

camera phones. Or so they think. What the team don't know

0:02:570:03:01

is that they're in for a DIY-blockbuster surprise.

0:03:010:03:04

Hello, I'm David Cleveland.

0:03:040:03:07

We're taking them back in time with a mystery piece of kit.

0:03:070:03:10

Stand by, action.

0:03:110:03:13

The team have started filming

0:03:130:03:15

and have no idea what's about to happen when David turns up.

0:03:150:03:18

They're going to be making their film using this 100-year-old

0:03:240:03:28

motion picture camera, complete with five minutes' worth of film...

0:03:280:03:31

Five minutes?! Good luck with that, then.

0:03:310:03:34

Cameras like this would have been used for the very first movies

0:03:340:03:38

and this rare, historical piece of kit is just

0:03:380:03:41

what the team need to get their film the silent movie look.

0:03:410:03:44

When they first saw me walk out, I think they were dumbfounded.

0:03:470:03:51

I thought he was a magician, to be honest.

0:03:510:03:55

I thought he was going to pull out a rabbit or something.

0:03:550:03:58

You'd struggle to take a selfie with that.

0:03:580:04:00

Aren't we going to film it with this, then?

0:04:010:04:04

We're going to have a go on this first of all to see how it goes.

0:04:040:04:06

Unlike most cameras we use now, this camera uses film.

0:04:060:04:10

When you turn the handle, the film goes through like that,

0:04:100:04:15

takes a picture and then moves the film down,

0:04:150:04:17

takes another picture, moves the film down,

0:04:170:04:20

takes another picture, moves the film down. See?

0:04:200:04:22

And it takes more than just pressing a button to start recording.

0:04:220:04:25

You've got to turn it twice every second.

0:04:250:04:27

As you start rotating the handle it starts to take

0:04:270:04:31

16 photos per second. You have to go smoothly.

0:04:310:04:34

If it sort of goes in jerks the picture will be speeded up

0:04:340:04:38

or slowed down and it'll go dark or light.

0:04:380:04:40

This sounds complicated, I wonder

0:04:400:04:43

if our challenge... I mean, surprise, will really help our team.

0:04:430:04:47

Now, if you disappear under the cloth. OK, can you see the hole?

0:04:490:04:53

Even lining up the shot is much trickier with an old camera.

0:04:530:04:56

When you had to look in to see where the camera's pointing,

0:04:560:04:59

that's the difficult part.

0:04:590:05:01

Can you wave that white thing a minute?

0:05:010:05:03

When you look through the hole,

0:05:030:05:05

it's like just a little tiny square thing and it shows upside down.

0:05:050:05:09

And it's dark and black and upside down.

0:05:090:05:12

It is very confusing, you've just got to get used to it.

0:05:120:05:14

I like your confidence. With the shot lined up they're

0:05:140:05:17

ready for their first take.

0:05:170:05:19

Silent, standby, action.

0:05:190:05:21

-Cut.

-Excellent.

-Perfect.

-Now we need to set up number two.

0:05:300:05:33

Time for a close-up shot, but with no zoom, the team have

0:05:330:05:37

to physically move the heavy camera closer to the action.

0:05:370:05:40

Can you imagine making a film on this? How long it took years ago.

0:05:430:05:47

With that camera, it's not portable.

0:05:480:05:51

It's too heavy to hold and it takes way longer.

0:05:520:05:55

On digital cameras you can move around.

0:06:000:06:04

Imagine trying to take that to a 1D concert.

0:06:040:06:07

Still to come on DIY blockbuster part two.

0:06:110:06:15

There's problems with the props,

0:06:150:06:16

worries with the wind...

0:06:160:06:18

The problem was we didn't know where it was going to land.

0:06:180:06:20

And it's all causing the camera's film to run out fast.

0:06:200:06:23

Now we need to get this right this time, because there's film

0:06:230:06:26

going through the camera, and we've only got so much.

0:06:260:06:29

SPEECH IS MUTED

0:06:360:06:39

Oops, sorry. Silent movies are just the best, aren't they?

0:06:390:06:42

Two of my favourite actors have got to be Laurel and Hardy.

0:06:420:06:45

If you dream of becoming an actor or an actress then here is some

0:06:460:06:50

brilliant advice.

0:06:500:06:51

My advice would be say yes to everything.

0:06:510:06:54

Don't be too cool for anything apart from too cool for school, obviously.

0:06:540:06:58

You want to push yourself and do you best

0:06:580:06:59

but you should enjoy it as well because it is hard work.

0:06:590:07:03

Help out. If a friend needs an actor

0:07:030:07:06

to be involved in a play, say yes.

0:07:060:07:09

Keep watching people because they do interesting things.

0:07:090:07:12

Listen, make friends with people, learn, absorb everything.

0:07:120:07:15

Don't give up on it, don't let anyone tell you differently,

0:07:150:07:18

that you can't do it, or whatever like that.

0:07:180:07:20

Just be fearless.

0:07:200:07:21

Just stick at it because something good will happen.

0:07:210:07:25

We ask the questions so you don't have to.

0:07:270:07:30

Tom, Tom, we're over here.

0:07:300:07:33

Tom, what's the best thing about being an actor?

0:07:330:07:36

Staying up late and eating pizza.

0:07:370:07:39

It doesn't get much more random than this.

-HE SCREAMS

And the winner is Erin.

0:09:180:09:21

Phoar, those Rock Hard Quizzes get more and more...

0:09:250:09:29

-DEEP VOICE:

-Rock Hard!

0:09:290:09:30

But someone else who's rock hard is our next guest.

0:09:300:09:33

My name's Amanda Foster and I'm a stunt woman.

0:09:330:09:36

Doing stunt work you have a lot of training,

0:09:360:09:38

you learn how to move, fall or react and use your body.

0:09:380:09:42

Stunt people are trained to do what they do.

0:09:420:09:45

I have my motorcycle licence, jockey licence, my HGV.

0:09:450:09:48

You pick up the skills along the way.

0:09:480:09:51

Now, we asked Amanda to challenge two teams of super Cinemaniacs,

0:09:510:09:56

Gower Films and Stunt-a-mania, to see who could

0:09:560:09:58

come up with the best stunt sequence in our...

0:09:580:10:01

But please, don't try any of these at home.

0:10:040:10:07

Amanda will be asking, is it original? Is it possible?

0:10:070:10:12

But, most important of all, is it entertaining?

0:10:120:10:15

OK, we need to just move all of the dinosaurs.

0:10:150:10:18

Gower Films kick off the action.

0:10:180:10:21

A girl goes into the bank, she gets a diamond.

0:10:210:10:25

And she notices someone's following her.

0:10:250:10:27

So they run through a couple of alleyways, do a bit of parkour.

0:10:270:10:31

-That's exciting.

-Yeah, it is.

0:10:310:10:32

They go onto a zip line down to the park. The girl with

0:10:320:10:35

the diamond kicks someone off their skateboard...

0:10:350:10:38

-Bit mean.

-..and tries to get away.

0:10:380:10:39

She skates all the way up and she sees a firework truck.

0:10:390:10:42

She jumps off the skateboard and the skateboard goes under the truck.

0:10:420:10:46

Skateboarder under the truck could work.

0:10:460:10:48

She does a flip over the firework truck and there's a big explosion.

0:10:480:10:52

She jumps into the water and the man that was chasing her gets

0:10:520:10:55

eaten by a sea monster that comes out of nowhere and that's the end.

0:10:550:11:00

That would work very nicely.

0:11:000:11:03

Next up, Stunt-a-mania.

0:11:030:11:05

So it all starts off with a gigantic dinosaur chasing the fastest

0:11:050:11:09

-man in the world.

-Ah!

0:11:090:11:11

And he stops at the water as dinosaurs can't swim.

0:11:110:11:14

-And then he goes through this pipe into the sea.

-Ooh.

-Plop.

0:11:140:11:18

-He starts riding a shark.

-OK, it's possible.

0:11:180:11:22

And then he finds more dinosaurs but then he jumps...

0:11:220:11:26

-Onto the helicopter...

-And he crashes down.

-Ah!

0:11:260:11:30

Gets on the rocket.

0:11:300:11:32

3, 2, 1, blast off. He goes into space and then the end.

0:11:320:11:36

So what did Amanda think of the stupendous stunts?

0:11:390:11:42

I loved their ideas,

0:11:420:11:43

it reminded me of the big multimillion-dollar-budget movies

0:11:430:11:48

we work on. Sharks, cars, explosions.

0:11:480:11:50

-I love it.

-And the verdict is...

0:11:520:11:55

For originality, Gower Films scored eight out of ten

0:11:560:12:01

and Stunt-a-mania scored nine.

0:12:010:12:04

This sequence put together is very exciting and pretty original.

0:12:040:12:08

For "how possible is it for the stunt to be recreated?"

0:12:100:12:13

Stunt-a-mania scored

0:12:130:12:14

eight but Gower Films scored

0:12:140:12:17

a maximum of ten.

0:12:170:12:19

The skateboard is really good. I quite like that idea.

0:12:190:12:21

And I love the firework truck.

0:12:210:12:24

-Yes!

-For entertainment value,

0:12:240:12:26

Gower Films scored eight,

0:12:260:12:28

and Stunt-a-mania scored ten.

0:12:280:12:31

Lots of action, lots to keep people sitting on the edge of their seats

0:12:310:12:35

and their hearts pumping. So that means the overall winner is

0:12:350:12:40

-Stunt-a-mania.

-Yes!

0:12:400:12:44

Way to go, Stunt-a-mania.

0:12:440:12:45

One of the most famous silent-movie stunts off all time was

0:12:470:12:50

done for real by an actor called Harold Lloyd.

0:12:500:12:53

He did all of his own stunts, including this one which

0:12:530:12:56

is really scary, definitely not one to try at home.

0:12:560:12:59

Hang on in there, Harry.

0:12:590:13:01

We're only halfway through the show.

0:13:010:13:03

Still to come on Cinemaniacs.

0:13:030:13:06

Michael Sheen, super actor, gets in a muddle

0:13:060:13:08

when he attempts to hit his mark.

0:13:080:13:10

Oh!

0:13:110:13:13

We head behind the scenes with new animation, Big Hero 6.

0:13:130:13:16

And if it's the scare factor you're after, it's time to get

0:13:180:13:21

-yourself a ghost.

-SCREAMING

0:13:210:13:24

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

0:13:240:13:27

Six film makers are making a silent movie

0:13:310:13:33

and they've been given the DIY-blockbuster surprise

0:13:330:13:36

of a 100-year-old camera to film it with.

0:13:360:13:39

But with less than five minutes of film

0:13:390:13:41

to shoot their whole movie...

0:13:410:13:42

There's 300 feet of film in there. That's going to last us

0:13:420:13:45

about four and a half minutes.

0:13:450:13:46

..the team can't afford many bloopers.

0:13:460:13:49

Cut.

0:13:490:13:50

Standby.

0:13:500:13:52

Let's hope this next scene runs smoothly.

0:13:520:13:54

Cut.

0:14:020:14:03

-Happy?

-No.

0:14:030:14:05

Cut.

0:14:090:14:10

Your mask came off.

0:14:100:14:11

It went a bit wrong a couple of times.

0:14:110:14:13

We need to get this right this time because there's

0:14:130:14:15

film going through the camera and we've only got so much.

0:14:150:14:18

It's not like a normal camera that's got lots of gigabytes in it

0:14:180:14:22

and all that.

0:14:220:14:23

If the team aren't careful, they could run out of film

0:14:230:14:26

before they finish their movie.

0:14:260:14:27

-Cut.

-I can't get it on properly.

0:14:270:14:30

Tashinga had difficulties putting his jet pack on.

0:14:300:14:33

What we've got to do is get all the rest of the scenes on that before

0:14:330:14:36

that goes round, so we've got to make sure each shot works perfectly.

0:14:360:14:40

Because there's only a limited amount of film

0:14:400:14:44

so you have to do it as best as you can in the first one.

0:14:440:14:47

So we're going to rehearse it three times

0:14:470:14:49

and then the fourth time we're going to shoot it.

0:14:490:14:51

Yep.

0:14:510:14:52

The team rehearse to make sure everything's perfect

0:14:520:14:55

before using up any more film.

0:14:550:14:57

Cut. Perfect.

0:14:590:15:01

Now you've got to do it exactly the same again.

0:15:010:15:03

-Are you going to record it this time?

-Yeah.

-Definitely?

0:15:030:15:06

Yeah, definitely.

0:15:060:15:08

People.

0:15:080:15:10

Cut. It was all right.

0:15:180:15:20

Although Husnain isn't completely happy,

0:15:200:15:23

with so much film already used up he settles for the take.

0:15:230:15:26

We did that part about over seven times.

0:15:260:15:29

I think we'd better move on to the next scene.

0:15:290:15:31

-OK.

-OK?

0:15:310:15:32

We never got it perfectly, but we thought it was great enough

0:15:320:15:36

so we could just move on.

0:15:360:15:37

And action.

0:15:380:15:40

But even when the actors do everything perfectly,

0:15:420:15:45

other things can still go wrong.

0:15:450:15:47

-And cut.

-Whoops.

-Prop problem.

0:15:470:15:49

Scenery falling down is the last thing the team needs.

0:15:510:15:54

When we was recording it fell off so then you could see all

0:15:540:15:58

the playground stuff. So we had to stick it back on.

0:15:580:16:00

Silence. Stand by, action.

0:16:020:16:05

-And even the weather is causing problems.

-Cut.

0:16:050:16:08

The wind was blowing too hard and the models are plastic

0:16:080:16:11

so when you throw them, like,

0:16:110:16:13

it would get carried away by the wind easily.

0:16:130:16:17

OK.

0:16:170:16:18

-See anything?

-No.

0:16:200:16:22

Uh-oh, that's more film wasted.

0:16:240:16:26

The problem was we didn't know where it was going to land.

0:16:260:16:28

It was very difficult to tell

0:16:280:16:29

whether that worked, do you think it worked?

0:16:290:16:32

Parachute in shot, just.

0:16:320:16:34

With the trickiest scenes shot, the team are on a roll.

0:16:360:16:41

Action.

0:16:410:16:42

And they shoot their final scenes in the nick of time,

0:16:420:16:45

just before the film runs out.

0:16:450:16:47

Right, well, we call that the end, or that's a wrap.

0:16:470:16:50

-THEY CLAP

-Sweet.

0:16:500:16:52

Thank you very much.

0:16:520:16:55

The team were given a 100-year-old camera...

0:16:550:16:57

Action.

0:16:570:16:58

..it started to wind them up...

0:16:580:17:00

You've got to turn it twice every second.

0:17:000:17:01

..and using it soon became a drag.

0:17:010:17:04

But was it worth all that effort?

0:17:050:17:07

I thought it was good.

0:17:070:17:08

It was ambitious, but we got there in the end.

0:17:080:17:11

I prefer the digital cameras. I can delete if I make mistakes.

0:17:110:17:14

You can check out the team's finished movie on the CBBC website.

0:17:160:17:20

So, this is where I give you guys three top tips to improve

0:17:230:17:26

the lighting in your videos.

0:17:260:17:28

Make sure you have lots of light.

0:17:300:17:32

This is perfect because you can see what's behind me,

0:17:320:17:34

you can see me, it's a great example of good lighting.

0:17:340:17:37

Don't film in the dark, you won't see a thing, so walk around

0:17:390:17:41

your house and turn on any lights to make the environment brighter.

0:17:410:17:44

Have fun with lighting.

0:17:450:17:47

Look at this!

0:17:490:17:50

There are so many different things you can do.

0:17:500:17:52

That's going to scare anyone. So many cool effects you can achieve.

0:17:520:17:55

What is this?

0:17:550:17:57

Oh, my word! This is awesome! I'm going through

0:17:570:18:01

time right now. I want to put this in my movie.

0:18:010:18:04

That's three top tips to improve the lighting in your videos. Now this.

0:18:040:18:07

We take you behind the scenes with Big Hero 6.

0:18:100:18:14

We're under attack from a super-villain, people!

0:18:140:18:16

Come on! Go, go, go.

0:18:160:18:17

-I am not fast.

-Yeah, no kidding.

0:18:170:18:19

Come on, kick it down, punch it.

0:18:190:18:24

I'm Don Hall and I'm a Cinemaniac.

0:18:240:18:26

Don's also one of the directors of Big Hero 6.

0:18:270:18:30

My name is Roy Conli and I'm a Cinemaniac.

0:18:300:18:34

Good to know, Roy. He's the movie producer, by the way.

0:18:340:18:37

So what's this film all about?

0:18:370:18:39

It's about a bunch of kids who are really smart

0:18:390:18:41

and who use their technology for good.

0:18:410:18:43

I mean, it's scary, obviously, but how cool!

0:18:430:18:46

It's how they became a superhero team.

0:18:460:18:49

This superhero team are made up of Hiro, Wasabi...

0:18:490:18:53

-Catch.

-Wow.

0:18:530:18:57

..Honey Lemon...

0:18:570:18:58

-Whoa.

-..Gogo...

0:18:590:19:01

Fred...

0:19:030:19:04

School mascot by day but by night,

0:19:040:19:08

-I'm also school mascot.

-..and Baymax,

0:19:080:19:10

the personal healthcare robot.

0:19:100:19:13

He may look like a large inflatable,

0:19:130:19:15

but Baymax is actually more lifelike than you'd think.

0:19:150:19:18

With Baymax's walk we wanted something very cute and appealing.

0:19:180:19:21

What's the cutest walk out there in nature?

0:19:210:19:24

Have you worked out what it is?

0:19:240:19:26

Baymax's walk is actually based on the baby penguin.

0:19:260:19:28

That's so cool.

0:19:280:19:30

Big Hero 6 comes from a comic book and in the comic book it's

0:19:300:19:34

a super team from Tokyo and so we wanted to keep with the Tokyo

0:19:340:19:38

but we wanted to kind of broaden it out to the world a little bit.

0:19:380:19:41

And so Sanfransokyo was born.

0:19:410:19:43

It's a vibrant city and we wanted it

0:19:430:19:45

to be populated with a lot of people.

0:19:450:19:47

We have the most characters in an animated film ever.

0:19:470:19:50

LEAKING AIR SQUEAKS

0:19:500:19:52

And no Disney movie is complete without a hidden secret.

0:19:520:19:55

So what's in this one?

0:19:550:19:57

SQUEAKING STOPS

0:19:570:19:59

There's lots of Easter eggs, I can tell you that.

0:19:590:20:01

Come on, give us a clue.

0:20:010:20:03

OK, I'll give you one clue. Where we first learn about Baymax having

0:20:030:20:07

a rocket fist there's a statue, that's the only clue I'll give you.

0:20:070:20:11

You heard it first here, another Cinemaniac secret.

0:20:110:20:15

Sweet, legend has it that

0:20:150:20:16

when they were making Toy Story, the animators glued planks of wood

0:20:160:20:19

to their feet to figure out how the toy soldiers should walk.

0:20:190:20:23

Stay tuned for some more movie secrets.

0:20:230:20:25

Introducing Mr Mike Tucker,

0:20:250:20:28

here to show you how to create special effects Hollywood style

0:20:280:20:31

in...

0:20:310:20:32

Today we're going to show you how to make a ghost appear.

0:20:360:20:39

EVIL LAUGH

0:20:390:20:41

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

0:20:410:20:44

We're going to try to make a ghost appear in that pantry.

0:20:440:20:48

The sort of effect we're aiming for is like the ghosts

0:20:480:20:50

that appear in Harry Potter.

0:20:500:20:52

You're going to need a window, a torch and a ghost costume.

0:20:520:20:56

Well, an old sheet, really. And that's about it.

0:20:560:20:59

But for this special effect it's all about where you put your camera.

0:20:590:21:03

Step one, you need to do this effect in the dark, cos not many

0:21:030:21:06

ghosts come out in the day, do they?

0:21:060:21:09

Step two, put your camera outside the window

0:21:090:21:12

so it's looking at the place where you want your ghost to appear.

0:21:120:21:15

If you want to get technical, the camera needs to be put

0:21:150:21:18

at a 45-degree angle to the window.

0:21:180:21:20

Step three, get into position with your torch.

0:21:220:21:24

If you keep an eye on that camera, I'm just going to

0:21:240:21:27

walk over here with this torch.

0:21:270:21:30

Step four, stand at the side of your camera and prepare to get scared.

0:21:300:21:34

EVIL LAUGH And if I stand here...

0:21:340:21:38

You'll be amazed to see what looks like a ghost inside.

0:21:380:21:40

As soon as I get a bright light on me I appear in the window.

0:21:420:21:46

-Now you see him, now you don't.

-That's amazing.

0:21:460:21:50

If you want to go mega scary then you'll need a ghost costume.

0:21:500:21:54

You can use an old sheet, check you can use it first,

0:21:540:21:57

and cut holes in it for eyes.

0:21:570:21:58

-Boo!

-THEY LAUGH

0:22:000:22:01

-That is awesome.

-So turn it off and he vanishes.

0:22:030:22:06

Turn it back on and he appears. And there he is.

0:22:080:22:12

You're all set to go, all-out scary.

0:22:120:22:14

And that's how you make a movie ghost.

0:22:160:22:18

# I ain't afraid of no ghosts. #

0:22:180:22:20

I don't fancy seeing him on a dark night. Next up,

0:22:220:22:24

it's our very own super actor with another super-actor challenge.

0:22:240:22:28

And now the star of Alice In Wonderland, Tron and Twilight...

0:22:300:22:35

My challenge today is to hit my mark.

0:22:410:22:44

Now, you can see on the floor just in front of me there is a mark.

0:22:440:22:48

Now, I will give you an example of what would happen in a film.

0:22:480:22:53

I might be walking in the middle of a scene but to make sure that I'm

0:22:530:22:57

in the right place in order to say my line, I will have to hit my mark.

0:22:570:23:01

The trick is I'm not supposed to look at my mark.

0:23:010:23:05

I have to just be able to hit it whist I'm in the middle of acting.

0:23:050:23:08

And these guys are here to judge how well I do in the...

0:23:080:23:11

Hitting your mark is something quite basic but you really have

0:23:150:23:19

to learn it and you have to practise it because it can't come naturally.

0:23:190:23:23

Act. Dramatic acting.

0:23:230:23:24

You have to make it look totally natural.

0:23:240:23:27

And that is how a super actor hits his mark.

0:23:270:23:30

You've got to learn to be fully aware of where

0:23:300:23:33

you are in space. It's the most important thing

0:23:330:23:36

because you bring space with you, you don't just walk into it.

0:23:360:23:41

So instead of doing it here, where it's relatively easy,

0:23:410:23:45

I'm going to do it here.

0:23:450:23:47

This is where I will begin this challenge,

0:23:480:23:51

behind this line in the sand here.

0:23:510:23:53

200 feet away you will see the camera on a tripod set up

0:23:540:23:59

ready to film me when I hit my mark, which is just in front of the camera.

0:23:590:24:04

But this is Michael Sheen, super actor,

0:24:040:24:07

so of course there's an almost impossible twist.

0:24:070:24:10

I have to hit my mark 200 feet away whilst blindfolded.

0:24:100:24:15

I'm allowed three attempts to try and succeed.

0:24:150:24:18

Hit my mark just once and I win.

0:24:180:24:21

So, what do you think of my chances?

0:24:210:24:24

-Not very good.

-No.

0:24:240:24:26

-Do you think you'd be able to do that blindfolded?

-No.

-Yes.

0:24:260:24:29

Oh, you do? Yeah, all right, then. What about you?

0:24:290:24:31

-What do you think of my chances?

-You might walk into the sea.

0:24:310:24:34

Yeah, what happens if I do walk into the sea? Will you come and stop me?

0:24:340:24:37

-No.

-No, thank you very much(!) Well, not a lot of confidence here for this

0:24:370:24:42

but I am feeling very confident.

0:24:420:24:44

OK, stand back, everyone. This is only for super actors.

0:24:440:24:49

It's time for the challenge.

0:24:490:24:52

This challenge is on.

0:24:520:24:54

This might not look too difficult, but remember, as well

0:24:560:24:59

as walking in the right direction, I also need to think about how

0:24:590:25:03

far to walk and then be in character to deliver my lines at the end.

0:25:030:25:07

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

0:25:070:25:11

CHILDREN LAUGH

0:25:110:25:12

MICHAEL LAUGHS

0:25:120:25:14

Luckily, I've got three goes at this. So this is number two.

0:25:150:25:18

Now concentrate, Michael, you're a super actor.

0:25:200:25:22

Oh, that was close.

0:25:260:25:28

You moved the mark!

0:25:280:25:30

They didn't, I was just too far to the right this time.

0:25:300:25:33

OK, final attempt. Third time lucky.

0:25:330:25:36

This is my last chance, this has got to work.

0:25:360:25:40

Somewhere between the two. I'm not that bad, am I?

0:25:400:25:43

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

0:25:460:25:50

Have I hit it?

0:25:500:25:52

Oh! Darn it.

0:25:520:25:54

Well, I did my best, but sadly my best wasn't good enough.

0:25:540:25:59

Today's challenge started with me hitting my mark and ended with me

0:25:590:26:02

hitting nothing except the beach. Not once, not twice, but three times.

0:26:020:26:08

And so, the verdict.

0:26:090:26:11

Michael Sheen, super actor, has failed.

0:26:110:26:14

Nice try, Michael.

0:26:140:26:15

Next time on Cinemaniacs, there's a fantastical

0:26:170:26:20

DIY-blockbuster surprise in store for these Cinemaniacs.

0:26:200:26:24

All you could hear was, "Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow" from everyone.

0:26:240:26:27

Michael Sheen, super actor, attempts

0:26:270:26:30

to impress the judges in the audition challenge.

0:26:300:26:32

ALIEN VOICE: Think what you're trying to accomplish.

0:26:320:26:36

And we get an exclusive with Diary Of A Wimpy Kid writer Jeff Kinney.

0:26:360:26:40

There's something in the pool

0:26:400:26:42

and everybody on set just completely freaked out.

0:26:420:26:44

And that really is almost it, except to tell you that

0:26:480:26:51

when they made ET, the extra-terrestrial, they created

0:26:510:26:55

the sound effect of ET walking from using a T-shirt filled with jelly.

0:26:550:27:00

SQUELCHING

0:27:000:27:02

To make it extra squishy.

0:27:020:27:03

-IN ET's VOICE:

-Phone home.

0:27:160:27:20

Oh, yum. I'm Oli White and you've been watching Cinemaniacs.
