I only spent a couple months working on Brave, which comes out this weekend, but I felt a particular connection to this movie. It’s a very personal story about a mother and a daughter and although I’m not either, the issues that come up in the movie are universal.
Well, okay, I haven’t had to fight many bears in my life or had to convince my parents not to force me into a marriage. But we’ve all had to come to terms with our identity and often, that means fighting expectations placed on us, which is what this movie is all about.
So go check it out: it’s got bears, it’s got magic, it’s got castles! Also … archery! If you’re wondering what I did for the movie, I worked on several of the wisp shots, including the last one in the movie before it cuts to the dedication and credits.
