0:00:330:00:35

Hello, everyone!

0:00:370:00:39

I'm Oli White and this is Cinemaniacs,

0:00:390:00:43

Cineminis.

0:00:430:00:45

Coming up, unhappy hobbits.

0:00:450:00:46

Get me out of here, I can't stand it any more.

0:00:460:00:49

Super-sound top tips...

0:00:490:00:51

You can have so much fun with sound effects.

0:00:510:00:53

DINGING POPPING

0:00:530:00:55

ELEPHANT ROARS

0:00:550:00:56

And Michael Sheen, super actor, hits the beach.

0:00:560:01:00

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

0:01:000:01:05

-What do you think about that, Gemma?

-I think it's brilliant.

0:01:060:01:09

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

0:01:090:01:11

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

0:01:110:01:14

you're just doing the funny sound effects like going, "Ahhhh! Wooeee!"

0:01:140:01:17

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

0:01:170:01:21

Ahhhh! Wooeee!

0:01:210:01:23

There's me getting a surprise, a DIY blockbuster surprise.

0:01:230:01:27

-Action!

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

0:01:300:01:34

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

0:01:340:01:38

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

0:01:390:01:42

You didn't know I was coming?

0:01:420:01:44

..when we give them something spectacular

0:01:440:01:47

to turn their home movie

0:01:470:01:49

into a DIY blockbuster.

0:01:490:01:51

Once upon a time, there was a princess.

0:01:540:01:56

..are making a fantasy fairytale film.

0:02:000:02:02

Red Riding Hood, Red Riding Hood, you are so brave.

0:02:020:02:05

It's about a king who wants a wife.

0:02:050:02:09

I'll give you potions, gold, valuables, anything.

0:02:090:02:13

And a wizard says that he needs three objects

0:02:130:02:15

and it's up to the King to get all the objects to make the spell.

0:02:150:02:19

The team are planning to film in this modern flat

0:02:190:02:22

but it's causing them problems.

0:02:220:02:24

The flat didn't really look like a wizard's lair.

0:02:240:02:26

We could take out all the modern things

0:02:260:02:28

and all the bright things and change them with dark things.

0:02:280:02:32

It's going to take more than a couple of bright ideas

0:02:320:02:34

to transform this place.

0:02:340:02:36

How are we going to move an oven?

0:02:360:02:38

And I thought, well, wizards' lairs are not that modern.

0:02:380:02:41

Not to worry, Ellie.

0:02:410:02:42

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

0:02:420:02:45

blockbuster surprise.

0:02:450:02:47

Time for some movie magic.

0:02:470:02:49

We're in a filming studio!

0:02:510:02:52

-Whoa!

-Wow!

-Look at the floor!

0:02:540:02:57

Oh, there's smoke on the floor.

0:02:570:03:00

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

0:03:000:03:04

Wow, indeed!

0:03:040:03:05

We've built them an epic set, jammed full of props

0:03:050:03:08

and we've filled it with special-effect smoke

0:03:080:03:11

to create that authentic wizard lair look.

0:03:110:03:13

Oh, look! Oh, this is great!

0:03:130:03:16

I'm speechless, I really don't know what to say, it was awesome.

0:03:160:03:19

The team finally start filming.

0:03:190:03:22

Take one, scene one, action!

0:03:220:03:24

But are struggling to get to grips with the camera.

0:03:240:03:27

We've got all the right ingredients, now how do we make a wife?

0:03:270:03:31

It kept on zooming in at the wrong moments

0:03:310:03:33

and zooming out at the wrong moments.

0:03:330:03:35

An now, there's another problem.

0:03:350:03:37

Your Majesty, the King.

0:03:370:03:39

The light was shining really bright in the camera

0:03:390:03:43

and we couldn't really see anything.

0:03:430:03:45

So, Millie, you need to film Ellie...

0:03:450:03:47

By moving the camera, they avoid seeing that pesky light.

0:03:470:03:52

-Your Majesty, the King.

-Hello, Wizard.

0:03:520:03:54

But with all the technical problems, there's something's gone unnoticed.

0:03:540:03:57

All the smoke's gone.

0:03:570:03:59

They've forgotten to shut the door

0:03:590:04:01

and all the smoke's has escaped.

0:04:010:04:03

Because we were all stepping about and running about,

0:04:030:04:05

all the smoke was being pushed out of the door.

0:04:050:04:08

With no time to waste,

0:04:080:04:10

the team decide to press on to the next scene.

0:04:100:04:12

Guys, can I just say, I think we should do a faraway shot for this.

0:04:120:04:16

In many films you can see it, like, with the curtains

0:04:160:04:19

dangling down and everything, it looks quite nice.

0:04:190:04:22

Eloushka's full of dramatic ideas, but the others aren't convinced.

0:04:220:04:26

And, Riley, I think it would look quite cool

0:04:260:04:28

if we have, like, the cauldron drop and then...

0:04:280:04:31

-No.

-No.

0:04:310:04:33

We were all having all these ideas.

0:04:330:04:35

It was trying to shout over each other.

0:04:350:04:38

THEY SHOUT OVER EACH OTHER

0:04:380:04:42

One at a time, guys.

0:04:430:04:45

They just didn't listen to each other.

0:04:450:04:47

They just thought, "Oh, I need my opinion heard."

0:04:470:04:49

The team eventually resolve their differences

0:04:490:04:52

and are finally stating to work together.

0:04:520:04:54

Now it's time for the big smoke effect.

0:04:540:04:56

Or not, as it escaped earlier.

0:04:560:04:58

We didn't have anything to use, so we used sand

0:04:580:05:01

and it's all over the floor.

0:05:010:05:02

Sand?! Are you sure?!

0:05:020:05:04

-That would look cool.

-Yeah, that's OK.

0:05:040:05:07

It's like a puff of smoke, but it's a puff of sand.

0:05:070:05:10

I thought it was going to go in someone's eyes or get in the camera.

0:05:110:05:14

-You've got sand all over me!

-It wasn't me.

-It wasn't me.

0:05:140:05:18

It went down my top and it went all over the camera.

0:05:180:05:22

It's not very, like, dramatic,

0:05:220:05:24

I think, we should probably, like, do something a bit more wow.

0:05:240:05:27

You know what they say,

0:05:270:05:29

people in wizards' houses shouldn't throw sand.

0:05:290:05:31

Stand by! Quiet, please!

0:05:310:05:34

The team have less than an hour to finish their film.

0:05:340:05:38

Take one!

0:05:380:05:39

Where's Eloushka?

0:05:390:05:41

-Where's Eloushka?

-LAUGHTER

0:05:410:05:43

Take nine. We're not doing it ten times.

0:05:430:05:46

Take ten!

0:05:460:05:48

Take 12!

0:05:480:05:50

Action!

0:05:500:05:51

Yay! Twelfth time lucky.

0:05:520:05:55

Oh, I think I got...

0:05:550:05:56

And after one last quick shot, their movie is complete.

0:05:560:05:59

That's a wrap!

0:05:590:06:01

CHEERING

0:06:010:06:03

-It was better than what we thought it was.

-It was amazing.

0:06:030:06:07

And now let's all go home.

0:06:070:06:09

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

0:06:090:06:14

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

0:06:200:06:23

Matthew, tell us your most favourite song ever.

0:06:230:06:26

-What do you know good?

-Eh? Erm...

0:06:260:06:28

What do you know good?

0:06:280:06:30

-What do YOU know good?

-Yeah, OK, well...

-No, no, no, not there...

0:06:300:06:33

-You can hum it and I'll sing it.

-Tell me one thing you know good.

0:06:330:06:37

It doesn't get much more random than this.

0:06:380:06:41

Now, let's head behind the scenes...

0:06:440:06:46

To the house!

0:06:490:06:51

Run!

0:06:510:06:52

I'm Adam Brown. I play Ori in The Hobbit.

0:06:540:06:58

HE BURPS

0:06:580:07:00

Before we did any type of filming, we did what was called

0:07:000:07:03

dwarf boot camp, where 13 actors who were playing the dwarfs

0:07:030:07:08

did horse riding lessons, stunt training, movement training.

0:07:080:07:12

So we learnt how to walk as dwarfs.

0:07:120:07:15

This was prior to getting the costume on and then, suddenly,

0:07:150:07:18

as you put those boots on, there's no other way of just moving

0:07:180:07:22

without walking heavily like a dwarf.

0:07:220:07:24

What do we do now?

0:07:260:07:28

-Hold your breath.

-Hold my breath? What do you mean?! Ahhhh!

0:07:280:07:32

SHOUTING

0:07:320:07:35

In The Desolation Of Smaug,

0:07:390:07:41

there is a scene where the dwarfs hide in barrels

0:07:410:07:45

and we are covered by fish.

0:07:450:07:47

Now, I have a huge phobia of fish.

0:07:500:07:53

And the fish came down and they just covered the top of me.

0:07:530:07:56

They just kept going and going and going and going

0:07:560:07:58

to the point where they said, "Cut!"

0:07:580:08:00

And I just shouted, "Get me out, get me out of here,

0:08:000:08:03

"I can't stand it any more!"

0:08:030:08:04

And at the end of the day,

0:08:040:08:07

I absolutely stunk of fish.

0:08:070:08:10

So this is where I give you guys three top tips

0:08:170:08:19

for improving the sound in your videos.

0:08:190:08:21

SPLASHING HOWLING

0:08:210:08:23

GURGLING REVVING

0:08:230:08:24

BOOMING

0:08:240:08:25

Tip one - you need good sound. Get yourself a good microphone.

0:08:250:08:28

I'm wearing a mic right now and this is a really good one to use

0:08:280:08:31

because it sounds nice and clear.

0:08:310:08:33

Or you can get a mic that sticks on top of your camera.

0:08:330:08:35

Tip two - bad sound.

0:08:350:08:37

Make sure you're aware of your surroundings and aren't standing

0:08:370:08:40

-next to anything noisy like this...

-GENERATOR RATTLING

0:08:400:08:43

..because people won't be able to hear you clearly.

0:08:430:08:45

Tip number three - sound effects.

0:08:450:08:47

You can have so much fun with sound effects.

0:08:470:08:49

FARTING

0:08:550:08:57

And that's three tips to have better sound in your videos. Now, this...

0:08:570:09:01

Cinemaniacs, I present to you...

0:09:050:09:07

the very first Cinemaniacs awards.

0:09:070:09:11

And the Cine for the best...

0:09:120:09:14

..goes to...

0:09:180:09:19

CHEERING

0:09:190:09:21

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

0:09:210:09:24

And the Cine for...

0:09:270:09:29

..goes to...

0:09:320:09:34

CHEERING

0:09:340:09:36

What movie hero would you like to play, Felicity?

0:09:360:09:39

-Jane Bond.

-Cool.

0:09:390:09:41

And the Cine for...

0:09:410:09:43

..goes to...

0:09:460:09:48

CHEERING

0:09:480:09:51

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

0:09:510:09:53

-I'm a Cinemaniac.

-I'm a Cinemaniac.

0:09:530:09:56

And we are... BOTH: ..Cinemaniacs.

0:09:560:09:58

-I'm a Cinemaniac.

-I'm a Cinemaniac.

0:09:580:10:00

-I'm a Cinemaniac.

-I'm a Cinemaniac.

0:10:000:10:02

I'm a Cinemaniac.

0:10:020:10:03

I am a Cinemaniac.

0:10:030:10:05

I'm a Cinemaniac!

0:10:050:10:07

We're Cinemaniacs!

0:10:070:10:09

And...

0:10:120:10:14

Eddie, Eddie!

0:10:150:10:17

Eddie! Tom!

0:10:170:10:19

Tom, could we have a word, please?

0:10:200:10:23

He waved at us, so... I guess that's good as well.

0:10:230:10:26

Julie! Julie!

0:10:260:10:29

Julie!

0:10:300:10:31

Ethan! Can I have a quick word?

0:10:310:10:35

Can I have a quick word, please, Ethan?

0:10:350:10:37

Julianne! Julianne!

0:10:370:10:40

Benedict! Benedict!

0:10:420:10:44

Can we have one word? Ben!

0:10:440:10:46

It's at times like this that I really hate being small.

0:10:460:10:49

And now the star of Alice In Wonderland,

0:10:520:10:56

Tron and Twilight...

0:10:560:10:57

My challenge today is to hit my mark.

0:11:030:11:07

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

0:11:070:11:11

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

0:11:110:11:15

I might be walking in the middle of a scene

0:11:150:11:18

but to make sure I'm in the right place in order to say my line,

0:11:180:11:22

I will have to hit my mark.

0:11:220:11:24

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

0:11:240:11:27

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

0:11:270:11:31

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

0:11:310:11:34

Hitting your mark is something quite basic

0:11:370:11:40

but you really have to learn it and you have to practise it

0:11:400:11:44

because it can't come naturally.

0:11:440:11:46

Act! Dramatic acting!

0:11:460:11:47

You have to make it look totally natural.

0:11:470:11:49

Now, that is how a super actor hits his mark.

0:11:490:11:53

You've got to learn to be fully aware of where you are in space.

0:11:530:11:57

It's the most important thing because you bring space with you.

0:11:570:12:01

You don't just walk into it.

0:12:010:12:04

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

0:12:040:12:07

I'm going to do it...here!

0:12:070:12:10

This is where I will begin this challenge,

0:12:110:12:13

behind this line in the sand here.

0:12:130:12:15

200ft away, you will see the camera on a tripod,

0:12:170:12:21

set up, ready to film me when I hit my mark, which is

0:12:210:12:25

just in front of the camera.

0:12:250:12:27

But this is Michael Sheen, super actor,

0:12:270:12:29

so, of course, there's an almost impossible twist.

0:12:290:12:33

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

0:12:330:12:37

I'm allowed three attempts to try and succeed.

0:12:370:12:40

Hit my mark just once and I win.

0:12:400:12:43

So, what do you think of my chances?

0:12:430:12:46

-Not very good.

-No!

0:12:460:12:48

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

-No.

-Yes.

0:12:480:12:51

Oh, you do?! All right, then. What about you?

0:12:510:12:54

What do you think are my chances?

0:12:540:12:55

-OK.

-You might walk into the sea.

0:12:550:12:57

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

0:12:570:13:00

-No.

-No. Thank you very much.

0:13:000:13:02

Well, not a lot of confidence here for this.

0:13:020:13:05

But I am feeling very confident.

0:13:050:13:07

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

0:13:070:13:11

It's time for...

0:13:120:13:15

This challenge is on.

0:13:150:13:17

This might not look too difficult, but remember,

0:13:190:13:21

as well as walking in the right direction,

0:13:210:13:24

I also need to think about how far to walk and then be in character

0:13:240:13:28

to deliver my lines at the end.

0:13:280:13:30

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

0:13:300:13:34

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

0:13:370:13:41

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

0:13:420:13:46

Oh, that was close. You moved the mark!

0:13:490:13:52

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

0:13:520:13:56

OK, final attempt. Third time lucky.

0:13:560:13:59

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

0:13:590:14:02

Somewhere between the two.

0:14:020:14:03

I'm not that bad, am I?

0:14:030:14:06

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

0:14:090:14:12

Have I hit it?

0:14:120:14:14

Oh, darn it!

0:14:140:14:17

Well, I did my best,

0:14:170:14:18

but sadly, my best wasn't good enough.

0:14:180:14:21

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

0:14:210:14:24

hitting nothing except the beach.

0:14:240:14:27

Not once, not twice, but three times.

0:14:270:14:31

And so the verdict.

0:14:310:14:33

Michael Sheen, super actor, has failed.

0:14:330:14:37

Nice try, Michael.

0:14:370:14:38

So, Cinemaniacs, it's nearly time for me to go.

0:14:400:14:43

But just before I do, I want to tell you that Daniel Radcliffe,

0:14:430:14:46

whose first movie was Harry Potter,

0:14:460:14:48

went through an incredible 160 pairs of glasses

0:14:480:14:51

during the filming of all eight Harry Potter movies.

0:14:510:14:54

Oculus Reparo.

0:14:540:14:56

That's a lot of glasses!

0:14:570:14:59

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.

It's time for the CINEMANIACS Awards. Also, it all goes a bit magical in DIY Blockbuster and we go behind the scenes of The Hobbit with actor Adam Brown. And Michael Sheen faces another challenge - can he hit his mark?
