This DreamWorks Animator Is Using His VFX Skills To Turn His Son Into a Superhero

James is not one of the ordinary kids in town. James is a superhero shooting lasers from his eyes and flying around. These super powers are all possible thanks to his dad, Daniel Hashimoto, who is a DreamWorks animator and a visual effects specialist based in LA. Daniel decided to use his visual effects skills and upgrade his own home-videos of his young son James, who is now also known as "The Action Kid".

Daniel Hashimoto gained a lot of experience working in the VFX and animation industry in the past few years, and worked on major films and TV productions such as 'Kung Fu Panda 2', 'Monsters vs Aliens' and 'How to Train Your Dragon'.

Sorry guys, but his home-videos are better and cuter than yours. Deal with it.
