Brave - Filmmaking Process with Director Mark Andrews

Brave was indeed one of my best among the movies I watched last year. I know pixar as an animation studio puts it perfection behind every scene they do but that river sequence where technical aspects like bears fur getting wet and merida's dress getting drenched it water.. its so much technically perfect. Found this great Behind the scenes video of Director Mark Andrews talking about making of the Brave. Must watch.
