SuperHeroKids have returned with their third installment of the fun YouTube series, online now!

In our first episode, we found Batman battling an enemy from his past, with some help from Superman. The second episode was a Christmas special that brought our heroes together to save the holiday and even introduced part-time sidekick Robin. Now, this latest adventure takes us to Metropolis and focuses more on the Man (or Boy) of Steel.

Our story begins on a typical day in Metropolis as Clark Kent goes about his normal routine, putting in a day’s work at the Daily Planet.

However, his routine quickly goes out the window with news that Wayne Enterprises’ latest creation is facing a serious mid-air emergency, threatening the safety of thousands. With no time to spare, Superman leaps into action to save the day, hoping to rescue the people in time, and if possible, save his friend’s company from ruin.

This was the most intense project to date for these young children and their family. Filmed on location at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in Florida, the production included the use of actual life-size space shuttle simulators to represent a commercial spacecraft’s interior and exterior.

Post-production was also highly complicated as more than 135 special effects shots had to be created to complete the visuals; utilizing such impressive tools as Video Copilot’s Element 3D, After Effects and more.

It was a lot of hard work, but it was fun taking the concept that was partially written by the kids and seeing it grow into a full-fledged mini-movie. From the construction of small set pieces, to the recording of our own Foley sounds, we have put a lot of time and energy into this in hopes that it brings a smile to your day.
