Child turned into superhero by dad – VIDEO

Of course, it helps if your dad happens to work in special effects for DreamWorks…


Dad Daniel Hashimoto has made his 3-year-old son James’ dreams come true – by giving him superhero CGI powers.


The lava-jumping, ceiling-hanging, light-sabre-zapping adventures of James have become a big YouTube hit. Dad Daniel has now created 12 videos – which you can view in one go.

Of course, these aren’t normal home videos. They’re home movies shot by an LA dad who happens to work in the movie effects department of film company DreamWorks.

James’ mum Mandy revealed that the Action Kid videos can take up to 12 hours to perfect. They set a bit of a high standard for the rest of us…

The idea of the superhero power videos came to Daniel when his son decided to play ‘Iron Man’, blasting things around the house.

When James saw his first home-made video he apparently asked his dad “Did I do that for real-sies?”
