Watch this. You won’t be disappointed. Umbrella is the new work that’s just been released by one of my favourite directing duos Tell No One. Tell No One, as they like to be known, consists of Luke White and Remi Weekes, writers/ directors from London, and these two guys are seriously talented. Their short clips are titled Experiments, as they explore a subject matter from a different point of view, sometimes mythical, sometimes purely from a creative direction. But with all of their work, beautiful aesthetics, sound, and post production fit together seamlessly and exquisitely.
In terms of tone, Umbrella is a slightly different work I guess, however again, the combination of simple but clever creative idea mixed with perfectly executed visuals means that it’s a winner. There’s nothing to it… from a conceptual point of view anyway, it’s purely a work that is playful, light… and just a little cute. What I also like is how they’ve taken this everyday object and created something so brilliant out of it. As an object, the umbrella is definitely iconic and I can’t help but think of Rene Magritte with this work. He used umbrellas in a lot of his work, maybe this is the type of thing that he would have created if he was living in todays world.
