'Action Movie Kid' Goes From Artist To Space Explorer In New Adventure

Up, up and away...

Give a kid some chalk, and he'll end up heading to space -- if he's Action Movie Kid, that is.

Visual effects master Daniel Hashimoto has turned his son, James, into an action hero (and a YouTube sensation) by adding effects to videos of his son playing. In his latest adventure, James used chalk to draw a U.F.O., which swiftly turned into a real spacecraft and sent him up into the sky. His dad's only request when he left?

"Be back by dinner, OK?"

Let's hope there's no traffic in space.
