Winner: Best Artist Film at Exposures Film Festival.
'Umbrella Girl' is a short piece focused around the protagonist of the title, and is an exploration into visual language, narrative, atmosphere and environment.
It follows this character on a simple journey through changing backdrops and scenes, through which it subtly infers ideas of loneliness,
escapism, and resolution from a sparse and ethereal tableau, from the singular, emotive vision of the central role, and the landscape itself.
Directed, shot and edited by Matthew Wood.
Umbrella Girl: Toni Nel.
Soundtrack: Mark Stevenson.
