The trick with boilover is to keep a spray bottle of plain cool water next to the stove. As you near boil, watch for the foam. If it starts to foam up, spray it really quickly until it starts to subside. This is a small scale version of what we do in professional breweries, only we use a hose.

I'd just rack it *really* carefully. As long as you don't move the racking cane around much, you shouldn't suck up too much pulp. If you think you've gotten too much into secondary, you can always re-rack into a tertiary fermenter/bright tank/whatever. I'd also totally recommend something like this: http://morebeer.com/view_product/6355/102287/The_Easy-Siphon as it makes siphoning much easier and more sanitary.

That appears to have really good clarity and a nice head, two things that many beginning homebrewers don't manage at first. Nice job, sir.

Yet another beer related note--next time you're up in Vancouver filming, or for any reason...drop down the border to Bellingham, Washington and check out Chuckanut Brewing. Amazing dedicated lager brewery run by Will Kemper, half of the name behind Thomas Kemper sodas and beer. I really recommend them.

Why stop with power tools? You could just get some medical oxygen and a diffusion stone and run it into the carboy at 2L/second for a few minutes... Oh, wait. That's what I did. My scavenge-fu is strong.
