Artists Recreate Movie Scenes With Choreographed, Exploding Umbrellas

Artists Recreate Movie Scenes With Choreographed, Exploding Umbrellas

Thomas Brown and Anna Burns replicate the low-budget action scenes in B-Movies with an unusual medium.

Allie Walker

While you might flock to the movie theater to watch the latest blockbuster, you can help but love a good B-Movie- those films that are so fabulously bad, you can’t help but love them. Low-budget wonders with lots of hungry zombies, lots of guns and requisite explosions, and lots of scantily clad girls.

In an homage to these classically bad movies, photographer Thomas Brown and creative director Anna Burns have recreated some of the most commonly featured scenes in B-Movies– guns, girls and explosives– with strategically placed, cleverly choreographed umbrellas in the film ‘POP POP BANG.’ Set against tranquil British landscapes, the umbrellas open one by one, slowing setting the scene. The umbrellas then ‘perform’ as if in a movie- the gun fires, the car explodes, and the naked girl… sees some action.

Watching the umbrellas ‘act’ may just be better than watching an actual B-Movie. Watch POP POP BANG below:
