The world's best Dad-who-is-also-pretty-good-with-Adobe-AfterEffects is back with a brand new batch of cutscenes to turn his lucky kid into the most adorable action hero this side of baby Groot.
Even though I know that this video was made by the visual effects experts of Black Sheep Films and isn't real, I can't help but feel queasy when I watch it. The rotoscoping is just so well done.
