The second of our stand-against-the-wall-of-sickbay videos, filmed as a series of short clips with a Canon G5 on a not very stable tripod and re-dubbed later to cover up the background noise and my ever more desperate instructions (You're off stage! Hit him now! Go on, die!) The script was written to fit with Chapter 8 of Minimus, where Flavius visits the doctor, and the 'Doctor, doctor!' exercises in the teacher's book. No children were actually damaged during the making of the film (although there were times...)

This story is a break with the usual formula of Dr F Latin plays: we filmed it in short clips, outside the school sick bay (the only blank wall we could find!) and re-recorded all the sound track to lose the sound of Harry Potter playing in the next room, and me yelling instructions to the actors. The script is available on the Minimus website.

Minimus bloggere incipit...


salvete omnes! Minimus and I are venturing from the safe haven of our website into the scary outer space of the blogosphere. I hope that Minimus readers and website visitors will leave the odd comment, as it's very easy to do. I also hope that I can set up Minimus podcasts and streaming video (never say I don't have aspirations far beyond my actual abilities...)

I should be able to keep people updated on developments in the Minimus world - and there are a lot of pots boiling at once, such as the Italian edition and a growing collection of teachers' resources.
