# Cinemaniacs, Cinemaniacs! #

0:00:320:00:34

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

0:00:370:00:42

CineMinis.

0:00:420:00:44

Coming up, Cinemaniac secrets from Hogwarts...

0:00:440:00:48

I was flying around on this broomstick

0:00:480:00:50

doing all kinds of crazy stuff.

0:00:500:00:51

..terrifying top tips...

0:00:510:00:53

The scariest shot in film - moving into a closed door.

0:00:530:00:57

..and can Michael Sheen, Super Actor, make this lot laugh?

0:00:580:01:02

# Let's dance under the chain. #

0:01:020:01:05

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

0:01:060:01:09

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

0:01:090:01:12

and its antler went up my bum.

0:01:120:01:14

Whoa! Bet that was a surprise.

0:01:140:01:16

That was, er, not something you can experience every day.

0:01:160:01:18

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

0:01:180:01:21

up next is a four-legged DIY Blockbuster Surprise.

0:01:210:01:23

-Action!

-We're giving groups of film-makers

0:01:270:01:30

the chance to make a short film

0:01:300:01:31

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

0:01:310:01:35

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

0:01:360:01:39

You didn't know I was coming?

0:01:390:01:42

..when we give them something spectacular...

0:01:420:01:44

SCREAMING

0:01:440:01:45

..and turn their home movie into a DIY blockbuster.

0:01:450:01:48

-You're not filming yet, are you?

-Guys, shall we do a rehearsal?

0:01:510:01:55

Jakub, Cameron, Momin, Hollie, Ellecia and Jack

0:01:550:01:58

are making a body swap movie.

0:01:580:02:00

-Hey, look at that.

-One?

0:02:000:02:01

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

0:02:040:02:07

Listen up! Action!

0:02:070:02:08

And they found a watch.

0:02:100:02:12

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

0:02:120:02:16

Which is kind of confusing

0:02:160:02:18

when the dog that turns into a boy is already a boy,

0:02:180:02:21

and the boy that's supposed to turn into a dog

0:02:210:02:24

still looks like a boy as well.

0:02:240:02:26

-It doesn't really look like a dog.

-Do we have a costume?

-It's fine.

0:02:260:02:29

Hopefully we can help fix this doggy dilemma

0:02:290:02:32

with our DIY Blockbuster Surprise,

0:02:320:02:34

because we're giving them a mystery actor.

0:02:340:02:37

Meet Jackie the dog.

0:02:420:02:44

Jackie has always wanted to be a movie star

0:02:440:02:46

and this is her big break.

0:02:460:02:48

Jackie has had no acting training whatsoever.

0:02:480:02:52

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

0:02:520:02:55

It's a real live prop.

0:02:550:02:57

We thought we wouldn't have a dog.

0:02:580:03:00

We thought Momin was going to be the dog.

0:03:000:03:03

Momin out, Jackie in.

0:03:030:03:06

There we are, use her as you film, and enjoy.

0:03:060:03:09

-Action!

-The team soon realise filming with a dog

0:03:100:03:14

isn't a walk in the park.

0:03:140:03:15

So the beginning was not easy. Wouldn't stay on the spot, anything.

0:03:150:03:21

Are we ready guys?

0:03:210:03:23

This is the fifth time! Jackie!

0:03:230:03:25

It wouldn't just stay still, would it?

0:03:260:03:29

It was really annoying, it was.

0:03:290:03:31

Action!

0:03:320:03:33

And, with the team running out of time,

0:03:330:03:35

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

0:03:350:03:38

And cut!

0:03:380:03:39

It kept going out of its lead, running off

0:03:390:03:41

and we'd have to go and get it.

0:03:410:03:43

Then we'd have to come back and do it again.

0:03:430:03:45

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

0:03:490:03:53

She ran away!

0:03:550:03:56

This isn't a chase movie!

0:03:590:04:01

They might have been a potty-trained dog

0:04:040:04:07

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

0:04:070:04:11

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

0:04:140:04:18

Finally, the team spot the problem with their prima donna pooch.

0:04:190:04:23

She just loves her owner.

0:04:240:04:26

And Ellecia has a solution.

0:04:260:04:28

Hollie, I've got an idea.

0:04:280:04:29

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

0:04:290:04:33

We realised that the dog followed the owner everywhere.

0:04:360:04:39

So we decided that we'd use the owner as...

0:04:390:04:43

like, to control the dog,

0:04:430:04:44

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

0:04:440:04:48

To get the perfect shot of Jackie,

0:04:490:04:51

they position her beloved owner across the field

0:04:510:04:54

in a bunch of stinging nettles.

0:04:540:04:56

Ouch!

0:04:560:04:58

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

0:04:580:05:02

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

0:05:020:05:05

cos he wasn't used to that.

0:05:050:05:07

Three, two, one!

0:05:070:05:09

Kind of hard really. Lifting his two paws up. You're behind it.

0:05:090:05:15

Action!

0:05:150:05:17

Sit.

0:05:210:05:23

The team are finally making progress,

0:05:230:05:25

but time is running out fast.

0:05:250:05:27

-Stand by, everyone.

-Rain is the last thing they need.

0:05:270:05:31

-The rain didn't help at all.

-No!

0:05:310:05:32

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

0:05:320:05:35

We're doing well now.

0:05:350:05:36

We know what to do, and by the time we go home

0:05:360:05:39

I think we'll get it done.

0:05:390:05:40

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

0:05:420:05:45

I found a watch.

0:05:450:05:47

..where he's swaps bodies with the dog.

0:05:470:05:49

I didn't like acting as a dog.

0:05:490:05:51

# Who let the dogs out?

0:05:510:05:53

# Who? Who? Who?

0:05:530:05:55

# Who let the dogs out...? #

0:05:550:05:56

I would say he did pretty good.

0:05:560:05:58

Especially peeing up against the wall.

0:05:580:06:01

# Who let the dogs out?

0:06:010:06:02

# Who, who, who? #

0:06:020:06:04

He had to lick himself.

0:06:040:06:06

# Who let the dogs out?

0:06:060:06:08

# Who? Who? Who?

0:06:080:06:10

# Who let the dogs out? #

0:06:100:06:11

It's not easy being the dog.

0:06:110:06:13

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

-Yep!

0:06:130:06:16

Cut!

0:06:160:06:17

-Well done.

-Thank you.

0:06:180:06:20

We finished, guys. That's a wrap.

0:06:200:06:22

So did their film turn out to be movie magic

0:06:220:06:25

or a dog's dinner?

0:06:250:06:26

Oh, no! Not again!

0:06:290:06:31

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

0:06:310:06:34

Now we get the behind-the-scenes lowdown on Harry Potter

0:06:370:06:40

from Matt Lewis, AKA Neville Longbottom himself.

0:06:400:06:44

I remember my first week filming really vividly, actually.

0:06:440:06:48

I remember Chris Columbus took me aside, and said,

0:06:480:06:50

"Just so you're aware, this is pretty much all about you this week."

0:06:500:06:53

And I was like, "Oh, gosh."

0:06:530:06:54

Um, sort of a lot of, er, a lot fear and of terror came over me.

0:06:540:06:59

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:06:590:07:00

Even at 11 years old, they let me do most of my own stunts.

0:07:020:07:04

They were sort of like, "Are you OK with this?"

0:07:040:07:07

Said to my mum, "Are you OK with this?"

0:07:070:07:09

I think she was more excited about it than I was.

0:07:090:07:11

Um, so they strapped me in a harness and the next thing I knew

0:07:110:07:13

I was flying around on this broomstick

0:07:130:07:16

doing all kinds of crazy stuff.

0:07:160:07:17

Come back down this instant!

0:07:170:07:18

On Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, Neville gets

0:07:180:07:21

pulled up by his ears by the Cornish pixies and hung from the chandelier.

0:07:210:07:25

I had to have special moulds made for my ears,

0:07:250:07:28

and so they had these rubber ears

0:07:280:07:30

that they glued over the top of mine,

0:07:300:07:32

and they attached them to fishing rods

0:07:320:07:33

so two guys from the creature effects department could

0:07:330:07:36

stretch these rubber ears to look like I was being pulled up by those.

0:07:360:07:40

Why is it always me?

0:07:400:07:42

I didn't realise that was how it worked. That was good.

0:07:420:07:45

0:08:520:08:55

Erin. Specialist subject - Alice In Wonderland.

0:08:550:09:00

0:09:000:09:03

Cos she thinks it's all a dream.

0:09:030:09:05

Where does the Mad Hatter hide Alice?

0:09:050:09:07

In a teapot.

0:09:070:09:08

0:09:080:09:13

Um, some blood from the Jabberwocky.

0:09:130:09:16

What does the red Queen use as a footstool?

A pig.

0:09:190:09:20

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:310:09:32

So, this is where I give you guys

0:09:360:09:38

three top tips to help you create a suspense movie.

0:09:380:09:41

You need the scariest shot in film - moving into a closed door.

0:09:420:09:46

CREEPY VOICE-OVER: What lies behind the door?

0:09:460:09:50

You can have so much fun with scary music.

0:09:510:09:53

CREEPY VOICE-OVER: It's coming after him. It's all around.

0:09:530:09:57

Run!

0:09:570:09:58

You need the point of view shot.

0:09:590:10:01

This shows what the character's seeing

0:10:010:10:03

without revealing who that person is.

0:10:030:10:05

CREEPY VOICE-OVER: Follow that man!

0:10:050:10:07

There's my three top tips for making a great suspense movie.

0:10:160:10:19

Hey, I'm just testing out the laugh-o-meter over here.

0:10:230:10:26

So, why did the chicken cross the playground?

0:10:260:10:29

Because he wanted to get to the other SLIDE!

0:10:290:10:32

Well, it seems to be working all right.

0:10:320:10:35

Over to you, Mr Super Actor!

0:10:350:10:36

ANNOUNCER: And now, the star of Alice in Wonderland, Tron

0:10:360:10:39

and Twilight, all-round good guy,

0:10:390:10:43

Michael Sheen, Super Actor!

0:10:430:10:45

Today I am going to go into that cinema screen there.

0:10:470:10:52

In front of this audience a film is going to be shown,

0:10:520:10:56

and I've never set eyes on this film before.

0:10:560:10:59

It will be a foreign film, but there will be no subtitles.

0:10:590:11:02

I will be sitting in a corner of the cinema

0:11:020:11:05

with subtitles and a microphone.

0:11:050:11:08

I have to perform every single role in this film

0:11:080:11:12

and keep this audience entertained.

0:11:120:11:15

Welcome to the Make 'Em Laugh Challenge!

0:11:150:11:18

If I can keep the audience entertained and laughing

0:11:180:11:21

for most of the film, I win today's challenge.

0:11:210:11:24

Everyone sitting comfortably? Then let's begin.

0:11:240:11:27

With this microphone, I'm going to have to act

0:11:270:11:30

every single part in the film,

0:11:300:11:32

never having seen the film before.

0:11:320:11:35

So, I have to see if I can keep you entertained

0:11:350:11:38

whilst you watch the film.

0:11:380:11:40

'I just hope there are no songs because I really hate singing.'

0:11:400:11:43

It's time for The Challenge!

0:11:430:11:46

OK.

0:11:460:11:47

'Will I be able to keep them entertained

0:11:470:11:50

'for the full one hour and 25 minutes of the film?

0:11:500:11:53

'We'll find out using my laugh-o-meter.'

0:11:530:11:55

'Right, so this film's called Rolli,

0:11:570:12:00

'which translates into English as Rolli.

0:12:000:12:03

'It's a Finnish film,

0:12:030:12:04

'and it's evidently all about a battle between elves and trolls.

0:12:040:12:07

'Wish me luck.

0:12:070:12:09

'Luckily, I've got subtitles to help me out.'

0:12:090:12:11

Lackey and Cacophony!

0:12:110:12:14

The map and the sextant.

0:12:140:12:16

GIGGLING 'I'm off to a good start.'

0:12:160:12:18

Knobbly and Rolli, check the beach.

0:12:180:12:20

'Who's this? Is that a troll?'

0:12:220:12:24

'He's a small character. Maybe I should do a squeaky voice?'

0:12:250:12:29

SQUEAKY VOICE: Help!

0:12:290:12:32

AUDIENCE LAUGH

0:12:320:12:34

'The laugh-o-meter is going in the right direction,

0:12:340:12:36

'but then, less than five minutes in, my worst nightmare happens.

0:12:360:12:41

'A song!'

0:12:410:12:43

# A land where rivers of milk can be found

0:12:440:12:47

AUDIENCE LAUGHS

0:12:470:12:48

# Where treasure chests lie in the ground

0:12:480:12:51

LAUGHTER GROWS

0:12:510:12:53

# The trolls aren't afraid of wars.

0:12:530:12:57

# We're heroes looking for welcoming doors... #

0:12:580:13:02

'If I can get through that, I can get through anything.

0:13:040:13:07

'But there's still over an hour left!'

0:13:070:13:10

Oh, horror of horrors! Such a new tent, and all ablaze!

0:13:100:13:14

'Try as I might, this is a long movie

0:13:140:13:16

'and the audience are starting to flag a little.

0:13:160:13:19

'And they're not the only ones - so am I!

0:13:190:13:22

'I'm going to have to dig deep

0:13:220:13:23

'to keep them entertained through to the end.

0:13:230:13:26

'I never thought I'd say this, but bring on another song.

0:13:260:13:30

'Come on, Michael. You can do this!

0:13:300:13:32

'You're a Super Actor. Let's go for it.'

0:13:320:13:35

SINGING

0:13:350:13:38

# Let's dance under the chain of stars

# Let the party begin.

0:13:440:13:47

# On a bright night. #

0:13:470:13:49

'Phew! Thank goodness that's over!'

0:13:520:13:54

So, did you enjoy the film?

0:13:540:13:56

-ALL:

-Yes.

-You did? Good.

0:13:560:13:58

Now, what was not such a good thing about my performance?

0:13:580:14:01

-What could have been better?

-Your singing.

0:14:010:14:04

The bad thing was...out of key.

0:14:040:14:05

Off key?! How dare you?!

0:14:050:14:07

Leave this cinema now and never come back!

0:14:070:14:09

Tell me a good thing about my performance.

0:14:090:14:11

You changed your voice for different characters.

0:14:110:14:14

It made it a lot easier to follow.

0:14:140:14:16

So, today's challenge started with me singing very badly,

0:14:160:14:19

but in the end that was what made them laugh.

0:14:190:14:21

Which means, for today at least...

0:14:210:14:24

OFF-KEY SINGING: I am Michael Sheen, Super Actor!

0:14:240:14:28

Way to go, Michael.

0:14:280:14:30

Show's nearly up, guys,

0:14:310:14:32

but just before we go, I want to tell you about piglet Babe.

0:14:320:14:35

That should really be called the piglets Babe,

0:14:350:14:37

because Babe was played

0:14:370:14:39

by over 48 different piglets because they kept growing up.

0:14:390:14:43

And each one had to wear a pig wig to make them look just like Babe.

0:14:430:14:47

What do you think? Looks pretty cool, right?

0:14:470:14:49

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

0:14:490:14:52

CineMinis.

0:14:520:14:53

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.

Harry Potter's Matthew Lewis, aka Neville Longbottom, gives behind-the-scenes secrets from the film franchise, the DIY Blockbusters get to work with a four-legged star performer and Michael Sheen is challenged to keep a whole cinema audience laughing.
