Creative expert Anna Burns has teamed up with photographer Thomas Brown to produce 'Pop Pop Bang,' a short series that celebrates the history of British cinema and its known preference for girls, guns and bombs.

Burns and Brown turned to vibrant paint-dripping umbrellas for Pop Pop Bang. The parasols unfold one after the other in the clips, mimicking the way in which guns go off in classic British films.

This series took to London's waterfront, the Suffolk House and a lush green forest. The backdrops, each rich in English history, resonated with the project's main themes.

As the pieces were set aflame, scenes from the James Bond series no doubt came to the minds of Vimeo's community members. The artistic production was also full of imagination and original thought, expanding its reach far beyond the motion picture industry.
