The story is set in Bloemfontein and the surrounding areas. Umbrellaman gets to experience the landscape in a new and colourful way. The film poses the question: "what is life, if not a game?"
Umbrellaman is a STOP MOTION short film, directed and produced by six ARCHITECTURAL students from the University of the Free State, South Africa. We had no prior film experience when we started on this adventure.
