# Cinemaniacs! #

0:00:330:00:35

Hello, everyone. I'm Oli White and this is Cinemaniacs - Cineminis.

0:00:370:00:44

On today's show...

0:00:440:00:46

Sick secrets from Horrid Henry - The Movie...

0:00:460:00:49

They actually threw the water all over my head.

0:00:490:00:51

..electric lighting tips from me...

0:00:510:00:54

There are so many different things you can do.

0:00:540:00:57

That's going to scare anyone.

0:00:570:00:58

..and Michael Sheen - Super Actor acts his way to stardom.

0:00:580:01:01

There's only room in this town for one Mr Big.

0:01:010:01:06

And that's me!

0:01:060:01:07

This show is like a box of chocolates,

0:01:090:01:11

you never know what you're going to get.

0:01:110:01:14

Chocolate, my favourite thing.

0:01:140:01:16

All right, all right. Calm down, Andrew.

0:01:160:01:18

-The word for today is share.

-Great.

0:01:180:01:21

Moving on with the show, it's time for DIY Blockbuster.

0:01:210:01:24

Action.

0:01:270:01:28

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

0:01:280:01:32

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

0:01:320:01:35

Little do they know, they're in for a big surprise...

0:01:370:01:39

You didn't know I was coming?

0:01:390:01:42

..when we give them something spectacular to turn their

0:01:420:01:46

home movie into a DIY Blockbuster.

0:01:460:01:48

Eleanor, William, Shiona, Charlie, Liam

0:01:520:01:55

and Niamh are making a sci-fi movie

0:01:550:01:57

on their school playing field.

0:01:570:01:59

It's based on blue and orange aliens.

0:01:590:02:01

Action.

0:02:010:02:02

They live happily together for years and years, and then there's

0:02:020:02:05

a rumour that gets spread which turns them all against each other.

0:02:050:02:08

One day, a massive meteor comes down to earth.

0:02:080:02:11

It turns out to be a blue and orange baby.

0:02:110:02:15

The team have started filming where the alien baby bursts

0:02:150:02:18

out of the UFO.

0:02:180:02:20

Action.

0:02:200:02:21

-But they're having problems with the cardboard box.

-Cut.

0:02:210:02:25

I mean, spaceship.

0:02:250:02:26

-I can't push it open.

-Let's do it again. Action.

0:02:260:02:29

Oh, no.

0:02:290:02:31

We had to do that bit many times.

0:02:310:02:33

Everybody ready?

0:02:330:02:34

Eventually they get the shot.

0:02:340:02:36

Phew.

0:02:360:02:38

The team have moved on to the next scene - an alien crowd scene.

0:02:380:02:42

Eleanor, you haven't got your mask on.

0:02:420:02:45

When there's only six of you, it's a bit hard making shots

0:02:450:02:48

look like there's a whole planet full of aliens.

0:02:480:02:51

What the team don't know is that they're in for a

0:02:510:02:54

DIY Blockbuster surprise.

0:02:540:02:55

We're going to supply them

0:02:550:02:57

with just what they need to supersize their film.

0:02:570:03:00

Time for their surprise.

0:03:010:03:03

Yes, we've beamed in a blockbusting 100 extras

0:03:080:03:11

to star as the aliens in their movie.

0:03:110:03:14

This will definitely work now.

0:03:140:03:17

For big crowd scenes, every single extra on set needs clear

0:03:170:03:20

instructions, so they know exactly what they're doing.

0:03:200:03:24

So if we have... What are they doing? I don't know. This is crazy.

0:03:240:03:27

The team need to keep everyone's attention, as it only

0:03:270:03:30

takes one person doing something wrong to mess up a shot.

0:03:300:03:33

Quite a lot of pressure.

0:03:330:03:35

You've got to explain it so they all understand.

0:03:350:03:37

All blues this side, all the yellows this side.

0:03:370:03:40

-Blue this side, orange this side.

-Oranges that way.

0:03:400:03:42

Ah!

0:03:420:03:43

We were like, "Come on. We just want you to walk over."

0:03:430:03:46

And we were like, "Listen."

0:03:460:03:48

Because we couldn't think of any other way of explaining it.

0:03:480:03:51

We need them to be on this side.

0:03:510:03:52

No, there are some blues on that side, so they need...

0:03:520:03:55

Oh, this side, OK.

0:03:550:03:56

You didn't want to be rude and be like, "Go over there,"

0:03:560:03:58

because I know you're older than me.

0:03:580:04:01

But you're the directors.

0:04:010:04:03

The team need to take charge

0:04:030:04:04

if these extras are ever going to listen.

0:04:040:04:06

Cut!

0:04:060:04:08

That's got their attention.

0:04:080:04:10

We had to shout to make everyone go to their places.

0:04:100:04:13

-There was a lot of shouting.

-Yeah.

0:04:130:04:16

Basically, what you have to do

0:04:160:04:18

is walk into the middle, say hi to each other

0:04:180:04:21

and be friendly.

0:04:210:04:22

I think we've got everyone on the right sides.

0:04:250:04:27

You might know what you're trying to say

0:04:270:04:29

but they might not know what's in your head. So trying to get what's

0:04:290:04:32

in your head to them is also quite hard.

0:04:320:04:34

And having got the extras' attention,

0:04:340:04:36

they waste little time in telling them exactly what to do.

0:04:360:04:40

So, exactly the same as last time -

0:04:400:04:42

shocked and then laser fingers.

0:04:420:04:44

Just make sure you look at us when we wave.

0:04:440:04:47

Action!

0:04:470:04:48

ALIEN NOISES

0:04:480:04:50

-This is good. This is what we want.

-Now I'm happy, I'm happy.

0:04:500:04:53

And with everyone knowing what they're doing now,

0:04:530:04:55

they manage to reshoot the alien baby scene with no trouble.

0:04:550:04:58

Cut.

0:05:070:05:09

OK, well done.

0:05:090:05:11

Thanks for coming. It was great to be filming with you and that's a wrap.

0:05:110:05:15

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:05:150:05:18

You can check out the team's finished movie

0:05:180:05:20

on the CBBC website.

0:05:200:05:23

Now, we take you behind the scenes with Horrid Henry - The Movie.

0:05:240:05:29

-Henry.

-Henry.

-Henry.

-Henry.

0:05:290:05:32

-Homework now!

-No!

0:05:330:05:36

I'm Theo Stevenson and I played Henry in Horrid Henry - The Movie.

0:05:360:05:40

I'm not going to that mouldy old brick house.

0:05:400:05:43

I'd always hide away from the chaperones, just because I was

0:05:430:05:45

mischievous and wanted to get into the role of Horrid Henry

0:05:450:05:48

as much as possible.

0:05:480:05:49

I like to call it method acting.

0:05:490:05:52

It's not bad...for a smelly nappy baby!

0:05:520:05:55

And triple detention.

0:05:550:05:57

Anjelica Huston was definitely fun to work with.

0:05:570:06:00

She was lovely.

0:06:000:06:02

ALL: Cinemaniacs.

0:06:020:06:03

The first time I walked onto that set I was so nervous...

0:06:040:06:09

Everything was so big

0:06:090:06:11

and I hadn't been on something that scale before.

0:06:110:06:13

You're seeing so many cameras.

0:06:130:06:15

I didn't really know what to expect.

0:06:170:06:19

..but in a weird way, like, nervous excited.

0:06:190:06:21

You know when you're really excited for something

0:06:210:06:23

but you just get that feeling and you like...

0:06:230:06:26

Together we are the Purple Hand Gang.

0:06:260:06:30

Every now and again you would hear a little bit of an argument,

0:06:310:06:34

but mainly, though, we did get on.

0:06:340:06:37

I had to eat that horrible sandwich, didn't I?

0:06:370:06:40

Oh, sorry.

0:06:420:06:44

That was the best scene.

0:06:440:06:47

Oh!

0:06:470:06:49

It wasn't puke, obviously. We wouldn't be that mean to Matt.

0:06:490:06:52

Oh.

0:06:550:06:56

Yuck.

0:06:560:06:58

What? It was baby food.

0:07:010:07:03

-That was it, it was baby food.

-Yeah, it was baby food. I had to really

0:07:030:07:06

go for it like I was ravenously hungry.

0:07:060:07:08

# Everybody dance Do-do-do-do

0:07:080:07:11

# Clap your hands Clap your hands... #

0:07:110:07:13

Talk about half-hearted attempt here

0:07:130:07:15

because it was just dropped on me on the day.

0:07:150:07:18

I mean, this one was going for it. I was not into it.

0:07:180:07:20

That was the comedy element. The dad can't dance.

0:07:200:07:23

No, not in the film like that.

0:07:230:07:25

He supposed to be absolutely going for it but, you know.

0:07:250:07:29

If you watch it, I'm two beats behind everyone.

0:07:290:07:32

Everyone else is there dancing away

0:07:320:07:34

and I'm looking around like, "Whoa, where are we at?"

0:07:340:07:36

There's a scene where Horrid Henry has to throw a water bomb at me.

0:07:400:07:45

And for the first take they said,

0:07:450:07:48

"Oh, no, it's just going to a practice."

0:07:480:07:49

And then they actually threw the water bomb at my head

0:07:490:07:52

and it was the most shocking thing ever.

0:07:520:07:55

SHE SCREAMS

0:07:580:08:01

Henry! I'll get you, Henry!

0:08:010:08:04

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

0:08:070:08:10

the lighting in your videos.

0:08:100:08:12

Make sure you have lots of light.

0:08:140:08:16

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

0:08:160:08:19

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

0:08:190:08:22

Don't film in the dark -

0:08:220:08:23

you won't be able to see a thing.

0:08:230:08:25

So walk around your house

0:08:250:08:26

and turn on any lights to make the environment brighter.

0:08:260:08:29

Have fun with lighting.

0:08:290:08:30

Look at this. There are so many different things you can do.

0:08:330:08:36

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

0:08:360:08:39

What is this?

0:08:390:08:41

Oh, my word.

0:08:410:08:42

This is awesome!

0:08:420:08:44

We're, like, going through time right now.

0:08:440:08:46

I want to put this in my movie.

0:08:460:08:48

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

0:08:480:08:50

Now this.

0:08:500:08:52

And the winner is Erin.

0:10:260:10:29

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

0:10:320:10:35

Tom, Tom, we're over here.

0:10:350:10:37

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

0:10:370:10:41

Staying up late and eating pizza.

0:10:410:10:44

It doesn't get much more random than this.

0:10:460:10:50

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

0:10:500:10:54

All round good guy, Michael Sheen - Super Actor.

0:10:540:10:58

For today's challenge, I've got to prove my acting worth to these

0:11:000:11:03

judges in the Audition Challenge.

0:11:030:11:08

I will be going up head-to-head with Tom,

0:11:080:11:12

who is a similar build and height to me.

0:11:120:11:14

And the judging panel will have to say

0:11:140:11:16

who they believe has the most star power.

0:11:160:11:19

Obviously I'm hoping that will be me.

0:11:190:11:21

Top three tips for a successful audition I would say are -

0:11:210:11:23

number one, being prepared.

0:11:230:11:25

Well, Tom, you can forget about being prepared on this challenge.

0:11:250:11:28

We're going to perform three pieces,

0:11:280:11:30

and we only get one minute to learn each one.

0:11:300:11:32

Look at that, there's loads.

0:11:320:11:35

Number two - being confident.

0:11:350:11:36

If you step into the room feeling really confident about yourself

0:11:360:11:39

that's going to shine through.

0:11:390:11:40

You're going to need all the confidence you've got

0:11:400:11:42

going up against me. I'm a Super Actor.

0:11:420:11:45

And number three - making a good impression.

0:11:450:11:47

Directors make decisions very quickly,

0:11:470:11:49

so I think you have to do something memorable.

0:11:490:11:51

Oh, yes, and they won't know who's who because we will be wearing masks

0:11:510:11:55

and talking through voice changers.

0:11:550:11:57

I need to succeed in two out of three auditions to win.

0:11:570:12:01

It's time for the challenge.

0:12:010:12:03

'Audition one.

0:12:060:12:07

'It's a scene from My Fair Lady, and first in is me.

0:12:070:12:10

'Nice chicken mask, eh? It's a favourite of mine for auditions.'

0:12:100:12:14

I know your nerves are as raw as meat in a butcher's window,

0:12:140:12:18

but think what you're trying to accomplish, Eliza.

0:12:180:12:23

I know you nerves are as raw as meat in a butcher's window,

0:12:230:12:26

but think of what we're dealing with.

0:12:260:12:29

'So, what did the judges think?'

0:12:290:12:31

I think A, he had more hand gestures.

0:12:310:12:34

I think they were both really good, but I think A was better.

0:12:340:12:37

I think that A was the best.

0:12:370:12:39

-I chose A.

-A was just a little bit...

0:12:390:12:43

He had a good tone of voice.

0:12:430:12:45

'So the winner of this audition,

0:12:450:12:47

'that's me!

0:12:470:12:48

'To make sure the judges don't know who's who,

0:12:490:12:52

'I'll be changing my mask, but Tom's staying as a chicken.

0:12:520:12:57

'This time we've got a scene from Bugsy Malone, and Tom's up first.'

0:12:570:13:01

There's only room in this town for one Mr Big.

0:13:010:13:05

And that's me.

0:13:050:13:07

There's only room in this town for one Mr Big.

0:13:080:13:13

And that's me.

0:13:130:13:15

I preferred B because I felt like he was really talking to us.

-I chose B.

-I think B.

0:13:190:13:21

I chose B because in my opinion he was more confident than A.

0:13:210:13:28

-I preferred B.

-I chose B.

0:13:280:13:30

'And the winner of audition two is

0:13:300:13:32

'actor B.

0:13:320:13:33

'Oh, no, that's Tom. It's 1-1.

0:13:330:13:37

'Everything rests on this last audition. Game on.

0:13:370:13:40

'Last piece is Mary Poppins.

0:13:400:13:42

'Not easy to pull off when you're dressed as a sheep.'

0:13:420:13:46

Childhood slips like sand through a sieve.

0:13:460:13:49

And all too soon they've up and grow and away they've flown.

0:13:490:13:55

And all too soon...

0:13:550:13:57

It's too late. His childhood slips like sand through a sieve.

0:14:000:14:04

I think A was better than B.

0:14:040:14:06

B was a bit dull, bit boring.

0:14:060:14:08

I chose A.

0:14:080:14:10

I thought A had a lot of hand gestures.

0:14:100:14:13

I think A was a lot more energetic.

0:14:130:14:15

I chose A.

0:14:150:14:17

'2-1 to me. Result!

0:14:250:14:28

'So today's challenge started with some creepy animal masks

0:14:280:14:31

'and a voice changer.

0:14:310:14:32

'And with some...Oscar-winning acting, I am, at least for today,

0:14:320:14:37

'Michael Sheen - Super Actor.'

This next Cinemaniacs' secret

0:14:400:14:42

is for everyone who loves mucking around in the mud.

0:14:420:14:48

Legend has it that the animators who worked on Shrek took mud showers

0:14:480:14:51

so they could figure out the best way

0:14:510:14:53

of animating the mud in the swamp.

0:14:530:14:55

How cool is that?

0:14:550:14:56

Well, got to go.

0:14:560:14:58

It's time for my mud shower.

0:14:580:14:59

I'm Oli White and you've been watching Cinemaniacs - Cineminis.

0:14:590:15:04

CineMinis are an even shorter, funnier and faster dose of the irreverent show about films and film-making, hosted by Oli White. It looks like CINEMANIACS, it smells like CINEMANIACS but this is the bite-size brilliance of CineMinis.
