Northridge’s ‘Action Movie Kid’ Has New YouTube Adventure
The newest YouTube installment from a creative Northridge dad — an animator at DreamWorks — shows his young son leaving the house for school and stepping into thin air.
“Action Movie Kid” — aka 3-year-old James — is the brainchild of Daniel Hashimoto, who has showcased his young son in a series of impressive videos.
Using Adobe AfterEffects, Hashimoto has shown James wielding a light saber, climbing over lava and blowing up Legos.
In the newest video, posted Saturday, James wears a blue backpack and pulls on safety goggles before venturing out the front door of a home.
He opens the door, the wind blows forcefully in and then James drops into the atmosphere, thousands of feet above the earth below.
“You forgot your lunch!” yells an off-camera voice.
The caption on the YouTube video, titled, “Going to School,” reads: “He gets there way faster than the school bus, but with admittedly worse hair.”
