Dreamworks animator turns toddler into real-life superhero

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Mar 30, 2014

Dreamworks animator Daniel Hashimoto has a new hobby, turning his 3-year-old son, James, into an action movie hero under the alias "ActionMovieKid" on YouTube.

"ActionMovieDad" writes on YouTube channel that James "gets into some epic situations, which remind me that life is an adventure." He adds, "I do these videos completely in Adobe After Effects plus a few third party plugins."

Hashimoto tells The Creator Project that, "Upon viewing the lightsaber and 'Iron Man' videos my son replied, 'What if I did that for real-sies, Dad?'"

These clips (above and below) are some of our favorites, but visit ActionMovieKid to see their full history of magic.
