SO COOL: His Dad is an animator for Dreamworks… and he made this Action movie.

It must be so cool to be able to say your dad is an animator for Dreamworks but this dad has taken his skills and his fatherhood to a whole new level.┬áThe loving father, Daniel Hashimoto, has created a bunch of very short videos of his 3 year old son, James, naming the series ‘Action Movie Kid’. Using his special effects skills, he has managed to put his son in a number of pretty mundane looking settings, then done some truly amazing things.

This tiny little Superhero gets to play the role of Batman by launching a grapple hook at a ceiling fan then being pulled into the air. He also plays with a light saber in a toy store before waving it around and destroying a few shelves.

If you remember being a kid and climbing across your sofa to avoid touching the floor of ‘lava’, this video will make you smile!
