The Umbrella - by Xin Li
— We are honored to work with Xin Li, a very talented film maker, painter, and animator from China, who was studying in Australia when he first worked with us. His films are full of beauty and sensitivity, and inspire wonderful music.
Xin Li has given permission to MusicWiz.club members to practice film scoring with this moving, poignant film “The Umbrella”. You should turn the sound down to imagine your own newly written score.
“The Umbrella” combines animation with glass painting – a winning combination! This film is full of warmth, and has touched the hearts of all who have seen it. Xin Li has a rare ability to capture both the strength and delicacy of human relationships in just a few “brushstrokes”. He is a consummate artist whose gentle, moving films are beautifully constructed and perfectly executed.
Xin Li is originally from Harbin, China, home of the famous Ice Sculpture Festival. He left his home to travel to Australia and become a student at the Griffith Film School, Griffith University, in Australia.
