Hello everyone, I'm Oli White.

0:00:020:00:03

Welcome to the home of film.

0:00:030:00:05

The mansion of movies.

0:00:050:00:07

The palace of pictures.

0:00:070:00:09

The castle of...cinema.

0:00:090:00:11

Well, that didn't quite work but you get the idea anyway.

0:00:110:00:14

This is...Cinemaniacs.

0:00:140:00:16

Team, take it away.

0:00:160:00:19

Action!

0:00:190:00:20

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

0:00:200:00:23

# Levitate your house with a bunch of balloons?

0:00:230:00:25

# Feel zero gravitation? A robot transformation?

0:00:250:00:28

# You're a Cinemaniac

0:00:280:00:30

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

0:00:300:00:33

# Or defrost a heart you accidentally froze?

0:00:330:00:35

# Want a bottomless case?

0:00:350:00:37

# Or a squid for a face?!

0:00:370:00:38

# You're a Cinemaniac!

0:00:380:00:40

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

0:00:400:00:43

# To explore the flora in your very own Pandora?

0:00:430:00:46

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

0:00:460:00:48

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

0:00:480:00:51

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

0:00:510:00:54

# Grab yourself a seat and hold on tight

0:00:540:00:57

# We're mad about movies! We're crazy for film!

0:00:570:00:59

# We're Cinemania...

0:00:590:01:01

# Cinemania...

0:01:010:01:02

# Cinemaniacs! #

0:01:020:01:06

We've got so much in this programme,

0:01:060:01:08

I reckon we're going to need a bigger show.

0:01:080:01:10

This...is what I'm talking about.

0:01:100:01:13

Coming up...we're giving these Cinemaniacs

0:01:130:01:15

an exclusive peep behind the scenes of the making of the Bill trailer.

0:01:150:01:19

-That's awesome.

-Yeah.

0:01:190:01:21

We're heading off to the moon.

0:01:210:01:23

Or, at least, showing you how to make one,

0:01:230:01:24

in the secrets of movie making.

0:01:240:01:26

Yeah, that looks really good, yeah.

0:01:260:01:28

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

0:01:280:01:32

To act with absolutely nothing.

0:01:320:01:35

Feeling a bit seasick, actually.

0:01:350:01:38

Rafe's just been telling me about his best animal stories.

0:01:380:01:41

There was one time when I stopped in front of a reindeer

0:01:410:01:43

and his antler went up...up my bum.

0:01:430:01:45

Hww. I bet that was a surprise!

0:01:450:01:47

And that was not something you can experience every day.

0:01:470:01:49

You're right there, Rafe. And talking of animals,

0:01:490:01:52

up next is a four-legged DIY blockbuster surprise.

0:01:520:01:56

Part one.

0:01:560:01:57

-Action!

-We're giving groups of film-makers

0:01:590:02:01

the chance to make a short film.

0:02:010:02:04

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

0:02:040:02:08

But little do they know...

0:02:080:02:10

they're in for a big surprise.

0:02:100:02:12

You didn't know I was coming?

0:02:120:02:14

When we give them something spectacular.

0:02:140:02:17

To turn their home movie into a DIY blockbuster.

0:02:170:02:21

You're not filming yet, are you?

0:02:240:02:26

Guys, shall we do a rehearsal?

0:02:260:02:27

Jakub, Cameron, Momin, Hollie,

0:02:270:02:29

Ellecia and Jack,

0:02:290:02:31

are making a body swap movie.

0:02:310:02:33

Hey, look at that!

0:02:330:02:34

There's a boy and a girl and a dog.

0:02:360:02:39

Listen up. Action!

0:02:390:02:41

And...they found a watch.

0:02:410:02:44

The magic watch turned the boy into a dog and the dog into a human.

0:02:440:02:49

The team have started filming but there's a problem.

0:02:490:02:52

ALL SPEAK AT ONCE

0:02:520:02:54

-Somebody...Jack, Jack.

-When she drops the glasses,

0:02:540:02:56

when she's looking around like that, she can't see nothing.

0:02:560:02:59

-Then you shout, cut.

-Let's go, guys.

0:02:590:03:01

But with everyone talking at once, it's not clear who's doing what.

0:03:010:03:05

When we were talking, everyone was just butting in.

0:03:050:03:07

-It was really annoying.

-Even if we were saying something very important

0:03:070:03:10

they were just like, "Ah, but what about this?"

0:03:100:03:13

I'll chuck the watch, shall I?

0:03:130:03:15

And in all this confusion, something goes missing.

0:03:150:03:18

He chucked the watch and we couldn't find it.

0:03:180:03:21

-Cut!

-Cut!

0:03:210:03:22

We can't find the watch.

0:03:220:03:24

-All of us looked for it.

-Guys, it's over here somewhere

0:03:240:03:26

because I did see, like...

0:03:260:03:28

Even the camera crew and none of us could find it.

0:03:280:03:31

And whilst searching for their watch,

0:03:310:03:33

they've managed to lose their only other prop.

0:03:330:03:36

A pair of glasses.

0:03:360:03:37

I put them on the floor and then I left them

0:03:370:03:39

cos I was looking for the watch and I don't know what happened then.

0:03:390:03:42

Maybe the floor isn't the best place to leave your specs, Ellecia.

0:03:420:03:45

Cameron soon finds them but there's a problem.

0:03:450:03:48

They snapped.

0:03:480:03:50

With the watch still missing and the glasses broken,

0:03:500:03:53

the team have to improvise.

0:03:530:03:55

I've found a solution. It's a watch.

0:03:550:03:57

It doesn't look like a watch.

0:03:570:03:59

We had to make a fake watch out of duct tape.

0:03:590:04:03

As well as making a fake watch, the duct tape also came in handy

0:04:030:04:07

to fix the broken glasses, very stylish.

0:04:070:04:10

But just when things were looking up...

0:04:100:04:12

disaster strikes.

0:04:120:04:13

It just poured down.

0:04:130:04:15

Yeah, it was hard because your shoes were so soaking,

0:04:150:04:18

-you could barely feel your toes by the end of it.

-Yeah.

0:04:180:04:20

While they shelter from the rain,

0:04:200:04:22

the team take the chance to chat about what's not working.

0:04:220:04:24

I think we're not doing it as well as we should be.

0:04:240:04:27

We weren't working together, we were arguing too much.

0:04:270:04:30

No-one's listening and...

0:04:300:04:32

Yeah, like... ALL SPEAK AT ONCE

0:04:320:04:35

-Like he said...

-As long as we listen to each other.

0:04:350:04:37

He said, "Stop screaming."

0:04:370:04:39

-We're not listening to each other now.

-Exactly.

0:04:390:04:41

We need to listen to each other and then the film will be fine.

0:04:410:04:43

With that sorted, the team have moved on to the next scene.

0:04:430:04:46

Which is kind of confusing, when the dog that turns into a boy

0:04:460:04:49

is already a boy.

0:04:490:04:51

And the boy that's supposed to turn into a dog,

0:04:510:04:53

still looks like a boy as well.

0:04:530:04:55

-He doesn't really look like a dog.

-Do we have a costume?

0:04:550:04:58

-It's fine.

-Hopefully we can help them fix this doggy dilemma,

0:04:580:05:01

with our DIY Blockbuster surprise.

0:05:010:05:04

Because we're giving them...

0:05:040:05:05

a mystery actor.

0:05:050:05:07

Meet Jackie the dog.

0:05:120:05:14

Jackie has always wanted to be a movie star.

0:05:140:05:16

And this is her big break.

0:05:160:05:19

Jackie has had no acting training whatsoever.

0:05:190:05:22

In fact, we're not sure she's had any training at all.

0:05:220:05:25

It's a real life prop.

0:05:250:05:27

We thought we wouldn't have a dog.

0:05:290:05:30

We thought Momin was going to be the dog.

0:05:300:05:33

Momin out...

0:05:330:05:34

Jackie in.

0:05:340:05:36

There we are, use her in your film and enjoy.

0:05:360:05:40

-Action!

-So, it will be easy from now on, right?

0:05:400:05:43

-Wrong.

-Come on, boy.

0:05:430:05:46

Can you wait until I've got the dog happier?

0:05:460:05:49

The team soon realise filming with a dog isn't a walk in the park.

0:05:490:05:53

So, the beginning was not easy.

0:05:530:05:55

He wouldn't stay on the spot, anything.

0:05:550:05:58

Are we ready, guys?

0:05:580:06:00

This is the fifth time.

0:06:000:06:02

Jackie.

0:06:020:06:04

It wouldn't just stay still, would it?

0:06:040:06:06

It was really annoying, it was.

0:06:060:06:09

Coming up, Cameron takes some acting tips from Jackie.

0:06:090:06:12

The weather gets worse.

0:06:120:06:14

-The rain didn't help at all.

-No.

0:06:140:06:16

And will the team lose anything else?

0:06:160:06:18

Jackie!

0:06:180:06:19

Can you believe that dog? Here's another animal behaving badly.

0:06:240:06:28

The pig bit Pam Ferris, who plays Mrs Bevan, on the leg.

0:06:320:06:37

And she fell over and she went into hysterical screaming.

0:06:370:06:40

And, you know, we were filming it all, obviously,

0:06:400:06:42

cos we thought it was hilarious. But, um,

0:06:420:06:44

she said, she'd never work with pigs again.

0:06:440:06:47

Which is a shame, really, cos I love pigs.

0:06:470:06:50

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

0:06:550:06:58

What was it like to win an Oscar, Anne?

0:06:580:07:00

Half the time I was just standing on one leg,

0:07:000:07:03

kind of like you do, when you're like, "Look at me - I'm flying."

0:07:030:07:06

It doesn't get much more random than this.

0:07:080:07:11

Georgina, specialist subject, Akeelah And The Bee.

0:07:240:07:28

What is Akeelah's last name?

0:07:280:07:31

-Anderson.

-How many siblings does Akeelah have?

0:07:310:07:35

Two. Three.

0:07:350:07:36

Why did Akeelah's mum pull her out of the state spelling competition?

0:07:360:07:41

Because she didn't do enough homework.

0:07:410:07:42

BUZZER

0:07:420:07:43

Correct answer - she arrived home late.

0:07:430:07:45

Aaargh!

0:07:450:07:47

Jamie, specialist subject, The Avengers.

0:07:470:07:51

Where is agent Natasha Ruminov sent to?

0:07:510:07:54

Erm, New York...no, India.

0:07:540:07:57

Which city do The Avengers defend from Chittari?

0:07:570:08:00

-New York.

-Who plays Lokey?

0:08:000:08:03

-Tom Hiddleston.

-How are Thor and Lokey related?

0:08:030:08:07

Erm, adopted brother.

0:08:070:08:08

What is the Hulk's real name?

0:08:080:08:10

-Bruce Banner.

-In the heli-carrier,

0:08:100:08:12

what band T-shirt is Tony Stark wearing?

0:08:120:08:16

Chill. BUZZER

0:08:160:08:17

Correct answer - Black Sabbath.

0:08:170:08:19

Aaargh!

0:08:190:08:20

Erin, specialist subject, Alice In Wonderland.

0:08:200:08:25

Why does Alice think the Bandersnatch can't hurt her?

0:08:250:08:28

Cos she thinks it's all a dream.

0:08:280:08:30

Where does the Mad Hatter hide Alice?

0:08:300:08:32

In a teapot.

0:08:320:08:33

What does the White Queen give Alice to return her to her own world?

0:08:330:08:38

Some blood from the jabbaworkie.

0:08:380:08:41

What does the Red Queen use as a foot stool?

0:08:410:08:44

-A pig.

-How old is Alice in the film?

0:08:440:08:47

About 22. BUZZER

0:08:470:08:49

Correct answer - 19.

0:08:490:08:52

Aaargh!

0:08:520:08:54

And the winner is...Jamie.

0:08:540:08:56

The film Bill is all about the life of a certain William Shakespeare.

0:08:580:09:02

But if someone had to play you in a movie, who would it be?

0:09:020:09:06

-Me because I wouldn't want to give any other actor the work.

-Wow.

0:09:060:09:09

Well, no. And also, I can do the accent.

0:09:090:09:12

Mannerisms, I've almost got down.

0:09:120:09:14

And I've got some bits of memory about stuff I've done.

0:09:140:09:18

So, if anyone can come along and play it better, then,

0:09:180:09:20

-good luck to them.

-Hm.

0:09:200:09:22

Now, this is Bill.

0:09:220:09:24

We're giving these Cinemaniacs an

0:09:240:09:25

exclusive peak behind the scenes

0:09:250:09:27

of the making of the Bill trailer.

0:09:270:09:29

-Bill.

-What?

0:09:300:09:33

Shakespeare, Bill Shakespeare.

0:09:330:09:35

There's lots of different elements that make up a trailer.

0:09:350:09:37

Can you guys tell me what you think they might be?

0:09:390:09:41

-The plot.

-You've got the plot.

0:09:410:09:44

We go and write a script, that's going to tell the story

0:09:440:09:47

that we've selected. That's going to make sense,

0:09:470:09:49

in the length of time that you've got allocated.

0:09:490:09:52

So in our case, it's 30 seconds.

0:09:520:09:54

-The voiceovers.

-Voiceovers.

0:09:540:09:57

-Sound effects.

-Sound effects.

0:09:570:09:59

-And what about music?

-Yeah.

0:09:590:10:01

Music, is that important?

0:10:010:10:03

-Definitely.

-Yeah.

0:10:030:10:04

-What does music do?

-Captures you.

0:10:040:10:07

-The Queen needs a play.

-Blah, blah, blah.

0:10:070:10:10

Gosh, writing's hard.

0:10:100:10:12

-It captures you.

-The trailer's basically telling you the story

0:10:120:10:16

and what the plot's going to be but it's not giving too much away.

0:10:160:10:19

You just need to make it all flow together really nicely.

0:10:190:10:23

Philip II of Spain.

0:10:230:10:24

Anyway, how are you?

0:10:290:10:31

Who puts the actual trailer together?

0:10:310:10:33

The editor puts it together and this is Frank.

0:10:330:10:36

-Hello.

-He's our editor.

0:10:360:10:38

Editing side of it, having to look through every single clip.

0:10:400:10:44

Get the right bits. 30 seconds seems like a long time.

0:10:440:10:47

And then you put it into practice and it is not a long time.

0:10:470:10:51

With comedy, you've got to really find short ways

0:10:510:10:54

of making everything really funny.

0:10:540:10:55

You've been before?

0:10:550:10:57

No, first time.

0:10:570:10:58

And the other thing is that everybody has different opinions

0:10:580:11:01

-on what's funny.

-Oh, it's nice.

0:11:010:11:04

Don't steal anything.

0:11:040:11:06

Something that I might find funny,

0:11:060:11:07

Hannah might not find funny.

0:11:070:11:08

And then we get into an argument

0:11:080:11:10

about what should go in...

0:11:100:11:11

Into the trailer. CHILDREN LAUGH

0:11:110:11:14

-Hello.

-CHILDREN: Hi.

0:11:140:11:15

Everyone, this is Steve.

0:11:150:11:17

Steve is a voiceover artist.

0:11:170:11:19

And you guys can direct him. I'd love to hear your ideas.

0:11:210:11:25

We need to come up with a slogan or a tag line,

0:11:250:11:28

to make sure it's something snappy that they'll remember.

0:11:280:11:31

-Make it rhyme.

-OK, let's think.

0:11:310:11:33

Plays is the main aspect of...

0:11:330:11:36

Play, day.

0:11:360:11:38

"History is a play, come and see it

0:11:380:11:39

"today." Oh, I don't know.

0:11:390:11:42

OK, this is hard.

0:11:440:11:46

"Catching our dreams."

0:11:460:11:47

-Cos do you remember Shakespeare, he says something...

-Oh, yeah.

0:11:470:11:50

Or, "In the Shakespearian world, nothing is as it seems."

0:11:500:11:53

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:11:530:11:55

Are you ready to catch your dreams?

0:11:550:11:58

In Shakespearian times, nothing is as it seems.

0:11:580:12:02

So, that one was quite mysterious.

0:12:020:12:04

Maybe have quite a strong English accent on the next one.

0:12:040:12:07

VOICEOVER ARTIST: Oh, no!

0:12:070:12:09

Are you ready to catch your dreams?

0:12:090:12:11

In Shakespearian times, nothing is as it seems.

0:12:110:12:16

-CHILDREN LAUGH

-And here's the finished result.

0:12:160:12:18

Are you ready to catch your dreams?

0:12:180:12:20

Break a leg.

0:12:200:12:22

In Shakespearian times, nothing is as it seems.

0:12:220:12:27

-That's awesome.

-It's really good.

0:12:280:12:30

-Yeah.

-So we're happy? CHILDREN: Yeah.

0:12:300:12:32

Yeah, I think it was really good.

0:12:320:12:34

I've learnt that it takes a lot more time than you think it would.

0:12:340:12:37

It's not easy by any means.

0:12:370:12:39

But I think it's really good how it's turned out.

0:12:390:12:42

I've learnt how to put a trailer together, like, professionally. So...

0:12:420:12:46

Yeah, it was fantastic.

0:12:460:12:47

And if you want to be a writer, just like Bill,

0:12:490:12:52

then you might want to know this.

0:12:520:12:54

My advice to any budding young film maker

0:12:540:12:57

is to start building the skill of telling a story.

0:12:570:13:04

Create stories with your friend and act them out.

0:13:040:13:07

And have little, kind of, theatre shows at home.

0:13:070:13:11

Try to find the opportunities whereby other people

0:13:110:13:15

might read what you've written.

0:13:150:13:17

Get your friends and family to be actors and give them lines.

0:13:170:13:21

Write them some lines and write them some dialogue.

0:13:210:13:24

And that's all you need to do to be a writer.

0:13:240:13:26

You just need to tell stories.

0:13:260:13:27

But learn how to tell stories, which have a really good beginning,

0:13:270:13:32

a really exciting middle and a fantastic ending

0:13:320:13:35

that you could never imagine.

0:13:350:13:37

Still to come on Cinemaniacs.

0:13:370:13:39

We get behind-the-scenes gossip from the set of Nanny McPhee.

0:13:390:13:43

Someone said let's try putting some farting in.

0:13:430:13:46

COW FARTS

0:13:460:13:47

And suddenly people were giggling a lot more.

0:13:470:13:51

We show you how to catch the moon.

0:13:510:13:53

Well, put one in your movie anyway.

0:13:530:13:55

Yeah, that looks really good, yeah.

0:13:550:13:57

And Michael Sheen is acting with nothing but green screen,

0:13:570:14:01

in today's Super Actor Challenge.

0:14:010:14:03

You can see on his face that he's mentally scared.

0:14:030:14:06

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

0:14:060:14:10

Previously, six film-makers are making a movie

0:14:120:14:15

about a boy and a dog who swap bodies.

0:14:150:14:18

They've been given a DIY Blockbuster surprise

0:14:180:14:20

of using a canine star in their film.

0:14:200:14:23

Right, Jack, Jack.

0:14:230:14:24

-With their disagreements.

-Over there.

0:14:240:14:26

Downpours and a diva doggy, things aren't going to plan.

0:14:260:14:30

Action!

0:14:310:14:32

And with the team running out of time,

0:14:320:14:34

it's not helping that Jackie isn't playing ball.

0:14:340:14:36

And cut!

0:14:360:14:38

Kept on going out of its lead and running off.

0:14:380:14:40

We'd have to go and get it. We'd have to come back and do it again.

0:14:400:14:43

This is one star that doesn't seem to like her lead role.

0:14:480:14:51

She ran away.

0:14:540:14:55

This isn't a chase movie.

0:14:580:15:00

It might have been a potty-trained dog

0:15:020:15:05

but not with, like, staying and sit and stuff like that.

0:15:050:15:10

It would be easier if it was Momin. At least he doesn't run away.

0:15:130:15:16

Finally, the team spot the problem

0:15:180:15:20

with their prima donna pooch.

0:15:200:15:22

She just loves her owner.

0:15:220:15:24

And Ellecia has a solution.

0:15:240:15:27

Hollie, I've got an idea.

0:15:270:15:28

If she stands behind the camera, then the dog will walk to her.

0:15:280:15:32

We realised that the dog followed the owner everywhere.

0:15:340:15:38

So we decided that... Use the owner as, like, the control

0:15:380:15:43

so the dog would follow into the right places and stay.

0:15:430:15:46

To get the perfect shot of Jackie, they position her beloved owner

0:15:460:15:51

across the field,

0:15:510:15:53

in a bunch of stinging nettles.

0:15:530:15:55

Ouch!

0:15:550:15:57

With the dog under control, it's time for her trickiest scene.

0:15:570:16:00

It was hard to make him stand up on his two legs

0:16:000:16:04

cos he wasn't used to that.

0:16:040:16:06

Three.

0:16:060:16:07

Two.

0:16:070:16:08

One.

0:16:080:16:09

Kind of hard, really.

0:16:090:16:10

Lifting his two paws up.

0:16:100:16:13

You're behind her.

0:16:130:16:14

Action!

0:16:140:16:15

Sit.

0:16:200:16:22

The team are finally making progress but time is running out fast.

0:16:220:16:26

-Stand by, everyone.

-And more rain is the last thing they need.

0:16:260:16:29

-The rain didn't help at all.

-No.

0:16:290:16:31

But at least they're feeling a bit more positive.

0:16:310:16:33

We know where we are now, we know what to do.

0:16:330:16:36

And by the time we go home, I think we'll get it done.

0:16:360:16:39

With the rain cleared, it's time for Cameron's starring role.

0:16:400:16:44

I found a watch.

0:16:440:16:45

Where he swaps bodies with the dog.

0:16:450:16:47

I didn't like acting as a dog.

0:16:470:16:50

MUSIC: Who Let The Dogs Out by Baha Men

0:16:500:16:53

Woof, woof, woof.

0:16:530:16:55

I would say he did pretty good.

0:16:550:16:57

Especially peeing up against the wall.

0:16:570:17:00

He had to lick himself.

0:17:030:17:05

It's not easy being a dog.

0:17:090:17:12

-It was fun to be a cameraman on that part.

-Yeah.

0:17:120:17:15

Cut!

0:17:150:17:17

-Well done.

-Thank you.

0:17:170:17:19

We've finished, guys. That's a wrap.

0:17:190:17:21

So we gave the team a performing pooch.

0:17:210:17:23

But they lost glasses,

0:17:230:17:25

-watches and almost their star.

-He ran away!

0:17:250:17:28

So, did their film turn out to be movie magic or a dog's dinner?

0:17:280:17:32

Oh, no! Not again.

0:17:340:17:36

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

0:17:360:17:40

So, this is where I give you guys three top tips for being on camera.

0:17:400:17:44

You've got to be relaxed. Just be really calm

0:17:450:17:47

and act like you're speaking to a friend.

0:17:470:17:49

No-one wants to see you being really nervous.

0:17:490:17:51

Keep it simple because people

0:17:560:17:58

just want to see you.

0:17:580:17:59

Don't try get over ambitious with loads of different props.

0:17:590:18:03

Like liza... OK, lizards.

0:18:040:18:07

Just keep it simple and don't waffle on.

0:18:070:18:09

No-one wants to hear about what you did yesterday, the week before.

0:18:090:18:12

Where your favourite place on holiday is.

0:18:120:18:14

What your favourite food is. Where your favourite trainers are.

0:18:140:18:16

Where you go to the gym. Just be really simple and to the point.

0:18:160:18:20

Don't go over the top.

0:18:200:18:22

Whoa, this is awesome. Aaaaaaaaaah!

0:18:220:18:26

Just be yourself and keep it normal.

0:18:260:18:28

And that's my three top tips for being on camera.

0:18:280:18:31

Now, this.

0:18:310:18:33

Let's head behind the scenes

0:18:330:18:35

with Nanny McPhee.

0:18:350:18:36

I am Nanny McPhee.

0:18:380:18:39

I'm Susanna White, I'm a film director.

0:18:390:18:43

And probably the best known film I've made

0:18:430:18:44

was Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang.

0:18:440:18:46

-Urgh.

-It is rude to stare.

0:18:460:18:50

The finished film is actually...somewhat different

0:18:500:18:53

from the screenplay I was sent.

0:18:530:18:55

For example, a pig dives into a pond,

0:18:550:18:59

does front crawl and comes out the other side.

0:18:590:19:01

And I went and had my bath one night and I thought,

0:19:010:19:04

"What if the pig dives in and then it pops up,

0:19:040:19:06

"and then another pig pops up and another pig pops up,

0:19:060:19:08

"another pig pops up and they all start doing

0:19:080:19:10

"incredible synchronised swimming?"

0:19:100:19:13

I love that because it seems so silly

0:19:180:19:20

that pigs would do something so balletic.

0:19:200:19:23

I had a cow who was afraid of mud.

0:19:230:19:26

COW MOOS

0:19:260:19:27

She didn't like getting her feet wet or dirty.

0:19:270:19:30

So we had terrible trouble in the morning

0:19:300:19:32

getting her across the farmyard to where she wanted to be.

0:19:320:19:35

COW FARTS The cow farting

0:19:390:19:41

going upstairs happened because people weren't giggling enough.

0:19:410:19:44

So someone said, "Let's try putting some farting in."

0:19:440:19:47

And suddenly people were giggling a lot more.

0:19:470:19:50

OK, other uses for a farting cow?

0:19:500:19:53

The cow that jumped over the moon...jet propelled.

0:19:530:19:56

We don't have a moon.

0:19:560:19:57

BELL CHIMES We need...

0:19:570:19:59

-VOICEOVER:

-Mr Mike Tucker.

0:19:590:20:01

Here to show you how to create

0:20:010:20:03

special effects Hollywood style in...

0:20:030:20:05

Today, we're going to show you how to make your very own moon.

0:20:090:20:12

So grab a friend and let's get started.

0:20:120:20:14

We're going to create the moon in a night sky.

0:20:140:20:18

And it's getting dark, so it's a perfect time to do this.

0:20:180:20:21

Having your own moon around the place, is really good

0:20:210:20:23

when you need it to be in a certain place, at a certain time.

0:20:230:20:27

Like this clip from the film Hobson's Choice,

0:20:270:20:29

where the moon needed to be reflected in the puddle.

0:20:290:20:32

You're going to need a broom, some card, a torch,

0:20:350:20:38

some white paint and a brush, some string and a pencil.

0:20:380:20:42

Step one. To make your moon, tie a piece of string to the pencil

0:20:420:20:46

and then get someone to hold one end of the string,

0:20:460:20:48

while you draw a really big circle with the pencil.

0:20:480:20:51

Then cut out the circle and paint it white.

0:20:510:20:54

Now, here comes the clever bit.

0:20:540:20:56

When you look up at the moon,

0:20:560:20:58

obviously, it isn't just a big flat white disc.

0:20:580:21:01

We need to get some detail into this.

0:21:010:21:03

So if you pour a little bit of black paint with the white.

0:21:030:21:06

And then you mix it up, so you've got a mottled sort of grey.

0:21:060:21:10

And what we're going to do, we're going to crumple up some tissue.

0:21:100:21:13

And start...dabbing that on...

0:21:130:21:16

where you see the areas of dark and shadow.

0:21:160:21:20

Step two. Attach the moon to the broom using thick tape.

0:21:200:21:25

So we'll get this taped down so that, that's nice and secure.

0:21:250:21:28

-So when we hold it up it doesn't twist around.

-Yeah.

0:21:280:21:31

Step three. You're going to need to disguise the broom handle,

0:21:330:21:36

so you can't see it.

0:21:360:21:37

We now need some strips of black card,

0:21:370:21:41

which we're going to tape over the top of the handle.

0:21:410:21:44

Step four. Put the moon where you want it.

0:21:440:21:47

Then light it with the torch.

0:21:470:21:49

-Erm, go right a bit.

-My right?

0:21:490:21:52

-Erm, my right.

-OK.

-Yeah, yeah, sorry.

0:21:520:21:55

-How's that?

-Yeah, yeah, that looks really good, yeah.

0:21:550:21:58

And that's how you make your very own moon.

0:21:580:22:01

Moon-tastic.

0:22:010:22:03

Coming up next, our super actor tackles the green screen challenge.

0:22:060:22:11

Whoa! But first, here's someone who knows all about green screen acting.

0:22:110:22:15

Whoa!

0:22:150:22:17

Most of the time, we were actually talking to a stick.

0:22:170:22:20

Er, with a bit of fluorescent tape on it.

0:22:200:22:22

Paddington.

0:22:220:22:23

Our director Paul King, he would sometimes sit in as the bear.

0:22:230:22:27

But by the end of the day, we were just, like,

0:22:270:22:29

talking to the stick, completely imagining him there, it was great.

0:22:290:22:33

So, Michael, the challenge is on.

0:22:330:22:37

Whoa! Yeah!

0:22:370:22:40

-VOICEOVER:

-And now, the star of Alice In Wonderland,

0:22:400:22:43

Tron and Twilight.

0:22:430:22:45

All-round good guy, Michael Sheen, Super Actor.

0:22:450:22:51

This week's challenge is a particularly difficult one.

0:22:510:22:54

Can I act with absolutely nothing at all to help me,

0:22:540:22:59

here, in a green screen studio?

0:22:590:23:02

Our judges Theo, Yassine and Chloe,

0:23:020:23:05

will have to try and guess what the scene is

0:23:050:23:08

that I'm acting out before all the other elements have been put on.

0:23:080:23:12

If they guess at least two out of three right, I win.

0:23:120:23:15

If not, I lose the Green Screen Challenge.

0:23:150:23:19

A green screen studio is used to add any kind of special effects,

0:23:190:23:23

such as a new background or a computer-generated character.

0:23:230:23:27

The judges must work out what the scene is.

0:23:270:23:29

If they get it right, I get the point.

0:23:290:23:32

So, the judges are ready to judge.

0:23:320:23:35

The super actor is ready to act.

0:23:350:23:38

It's time for the challenge.

0:23:380:23:40

Right, here we go.

0:23:400:23:42

-He's looking for something.

-Yeah.

0:23:450:23:48

He's breathing quite heavily.

0:23:480:23:50

Maybe he's lacking in water?

0:23:500:23:52

Too much sun in his eyes. He is marooned somewhere.

0:23:520:23:56

He's looking for something.

0:23:560:23:57

He's in the jungle.

0:23:570:23:59

Let's see what it was.

0:23:590:24:01

Oh, now it becomes obvious.

0:24:010:24:03

If we'd thought of that.

0:24:040:24:06

I was a captain on board ship on a rough sea, of course.

0:24:060:24:10

-BUZZER

-Feeling a bit seasick, actually.

0:24:100:24:13

So that's one wrong, two to go.

0:24:130:24:17

I need to up my game for round two.

0:24:170:24:19

You can see on his face

0:24:210:24:22

that he's mentally scared.

0:24:220:24:24

It might be because he's in a cave.

0:24:240:24:27

A dinosaur has backed Michael into a cave.

0:24:280:24:34

I don't know how,

0:24:340:24:36

but they're right.

0:24:360:24:37

CHILDREN: Yes!

0:24:370:24:38

Maybe it was my super acting,

0:24:380:24:40

round two to me.

0:24:400:24:41

Finally, we've got one right.

0:24:410:24:44

Guys, come on, we've got two down, one to go.

0:24:440:24:48

-So we need to make this count.

-Yes, you do.

0:24:480:24:51

Make sure you've got your brain on.

0:24:510:24:53

Round three, here we go.

0:24:530:24:55

-That is a superman pose, like...

-Yeah.

0:24:560:24:59

But what is he lifting?

0:25:020:25:03

-Could be lifting a car.

-Could be a lorry.

0:25:030:25:06

CHILDREN: Yes!

0:25:080:25:10

Result, two out of three ain't bad.

0:25:100:25:12

Whoops! Today's challenge started with me acting with nothing.

0:25:140:25:18

But ended up with me convincing our judges that I was a dinosaur slayer.

0:25:180:25:22

And a superhero, but not a sea captain.

0:25:220:25:26

Which means, the verdict is,

0:25:260:25:28

for today at least, I am Michael Sheen, Super Actor.

0:25:280:25:33

Pretty cool, eh? I think Michael deserves an award

0:25:350:25:37

for his seasick performance.

0:25:370:25:39

Hey, Michael, this is for you.

0:25:390:25:42

And we thought we'd take this opportunity

0:25:420:25:44

to hand out a few more awards.

0:25:440:25:46

Cinemaniacs, I present to you...

0:25:460:25:49

The very first Cinemaniacs Awards.

0:25:490:25:52

And the Cine for...

0:25:530:25:56

0:25:580:25:59

And I don't want to talk business, I just want to...play my whistle.

0:26:020:26:06

And the Cine for...

0:26:080:26:09

..goes to...

0:26:130:26:15

What movie hero would you like to play, Felicity?

0:26:170:26:20

-Jane Bond.

-Cool.

0:26:200:26:22

And the Cine for...

0:26:220:26:23

..goes to...

0:26:270:26:29

My name's Jake and I'm a Cinemaniac.

0:26:320:26:34

I'm a Cinemaniac.

A fast moving, funny, irreverent and inspiring show about films and film-making. Presented by Oli White, this programme celebrates movie culture with strands such as Michael Sheen, Super Actor and DIY Blockbuster.

This episode spotlights the best of British family movies and goes behind the scenes on Nanny McPhee, while some young film fans find out how tough it is to cut a trailer for a film comedy called Bill. The DIY Blockbusters realise their 'pet' project with the help of a four-legged guest performer, and Oli White hands out his end-of-series awards.
