Dad’s Special Effects Gives Toddler Explosive Superpowers (Video)
Life is never boring when your dad is an after-effects specialist for DreamWorks.
Daniel Hashimoto records his 3-year-old son Jamie during playtime and makes explosive additions afterwards.
Jamie, a lover of sci-fi and superheroes, is the star of Hashimoto’s videos, shooting lasers from his hands and navigating a sea of lava on a sofa cushion. He can wreck an entire toy store, become a mini-Jedi, or vanish into a puddle of water.
“My 3-year-old kid is awesome. He gets into some epic situations which remind me that life is an adventure,” says Hashimoto’s YouTube channel. “I do these videos completely in Adobe After Effects plus a few third party plugins.”
The L.A. based animator has worked on features like “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Kung Fu Panda 2.”
