26 Aug Dev Play & Learn
L. Dev Aksshagan’s latest YouTube video has set tongues wagging at Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) International School.
The Year 3 scholar’s ‘Message From a Superhero’ was uploaded to his channel – ‘Dev Play & Learn’ – on Aug 15.
His father, G. Logeswaran, helped film and edit the public service announcement about Covid-19, delivered by ‘Captain Dev’.
“We had previously shot two videos for his channel, but this was the most ambitious project,” said Logeswaran.
“Dev has had the Captain America costume for a while, and this an opportunity to use it before he outgrows it.
“Since we are stuck at home, I had been taking free online courses as I had wanted to improve on the videos.
“We did a Covid-19 awareness video as we, sadly, lost a few family members to the coronavirus.
“We wanted to put the message out there that kids must know what is happening, and what they can do to stop the spread of Covid-19.
“It is just a simple video, but it was a good bonding project. It kept us occupied as we have been at home for so long.”
Logeswaran said he and his wife Om Gunavathy wanted to try out new things to entertain their children.
Dev was surprised by the special effects.
“It was a big shock seeing the final video. I didn’t know dad was going to make me ‘fly’,” said Dev, whose younger brother, Thiran Aksshagan, is a pre-schooler in GOTS International School.
“There was also two of me – one as myself and another as Captain Dev. It’s so awesome. I hope we can make more videos.”
Logeswaran, said his son has two more costumes – Spider-Man and Thor – and he may use them in future videos.
