Action Movie Kid is a channel on YouTube, which simultaneously refers to the children’s and adult segments of the English-speaking YouTube as the authors of the channel claim themselves. This channel is really different from the numerous children’s channels, because here the wildest fantasies come to life. The channel’s authors are kids named James and Sofia as well as their caring father. It was he who in 2014 decided to create a channel on the video platform. The first videos resembled vines, because their duration was several seconds. For example, in the very first video, little James seemed to be in the world of the movie “The Matrix”. With the help of a video editor, the kid’s daddy painted green symbols that seemed to surround a small blogger. Such a creative approach to content creation, of course, led the channel to success. Two years later the channel received more than 800 thousand subscribers, and some videos became viral, gaining more than 70 million views!
What does the content of the channel consist of? First of all, it is worth noting that the formats that bloggers use are unique and original. However, the content of the channel can be divided into several thematic blocks. In the first block there are video clips in which James and Sofia turn into characters from popular films. The children turned into slugs from the cartoon “Ghostbusters”, Olaf from the cartoon “Frozen”, Captain America and Batman, Iron Man and Spiderman.
The second thematic block contains mini-films in which James is a small villain who wants to destroy the world. He blows up the shelves in the shops, and also contributes to the invasion of aliens …
In the next thematic block there are videos about how James uses magic in everyday life. For example, he can easily cook a fried chicken with the help of the Lightsaber.
