We Are Thrilled! It’s Finally Here! The Umbrella

After six long years, the independent filmmakers of The Initiative Production Company are proud to announce The Umbrella is finally available for purchase in Australia and New Zealand.

It’s also available in the United States and United Kingdom on Flix Premiere.

The Umbrella can be found on iTunes. If we have 150 downloads within the first day, our film will be placed on the trending list on the main site. Help us reach that goal to get more people hearing about our first film.

Thank you for your support over the last six years, we couldn’t have done this without you.

It’s also available on the following platforms: Telstra, GooglePlay, Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, and FetchTV.

Help a tenacious group of filmmakers get the word out!
