Awesome dad turns son into superhero using amazing special effects

This is what happens when your dad works for Dreamworks. The Creators Project recently featured Dreamworks animator Daniel Hashimoto, who turned his son James into an epic superhero, just using Adobe AfterEffects.


'Action Movie Kid' is a series of adorably cute superhuman vignettes involving a lightsaber in a Toys 'R Us and a spaceship launch in a fast food restaurant and more.

"Upon viewing the lightsaber and Iron Man videos," Hashimoto told us, "My son replied, 'Why if I did that for real-sies, Dad?'" Heart-melting.
