This is the year of bows and arrows. I’ve already seen a marketing increase in the use of bows and arrows with two fantastic movies this year sporting how cool it is to be an archer. Princess Merida is a one shot wonder when it comes to shooting her bow and arrow. While visiting Pixar last week we had the opportunity to shoot bows and arrows with an expert.
He made us all look good as he helped us keep our elbows down and aiming straight. All of our shots made it onto the target just not hitting the bullseye. I have to say that shooting quickly became addictive. I wanted to spend the rest of the day shooting until I hit that little red target that was taunting me every time I missed it.
In the end I got the bulls-eye
by doing it with my bare hands
I cheated. But Merida told me that it takes years and years of practice and you can still have a bad day out of the blue even with lots of experience. So she was happy to take a photo with me for a day of hard work out on the field.
Brave soars into theaters on June 22nd.
