Braveheart, Paper Flight Flaming Arrow Display

original movie prop

A flame arrow used in the Mel Gibson Oscar winning classic, Braveheart. Pieces such as this were used in the spectacular battle scenes as the English make the mistake of taking on the Scottish army, unaware how passionate and vast their numbers have become.  The wooden arrow has a paper flight which were much easier to create over the feather fletched versions, and from a distance look identical, with a hemp wrapping around the tip fixed on with wire and showing evidence of being burnt as part of the on screen action.  Special Effects Supervisor Nick Allder built a battery of compressed air arrow shooters. 10.000 arrows with rubber tips were created for the film which were shot by the arrow launchers on this trailer. The 'Braveheart' launcher consisted of four compressed air tanks with multiple barrels firing into the air as many as 360 arrows at a time in quick succession. Such devices are often used when a lot of arrows should fly as homogeneous as possible at once through the air.  It comes presented horizontally in a custom built display with laser cut mount board featuring the movie title and stills
