Proof That Movie Director Jim Cole is a Part of the Umbrella Corporation?

Director Jim Cole Umbrella Corporation
Director Jim Cole just may be a high ranking member of the Umbrella Corporation... or is he?
This image was taken while he is directing the film "Anniversary" in the north-woods of New England. The film doesn't have super-star actor Milla Jovovich. (Resident Evil fans let out  a sad sigh.) None-the-less, the question that actor Paul Cram has is "Why the red and white umbrella? Is it just a coincidence? Or is it more sinister?"
Is director Jim Cole secretly working for the Umbrella Corporation?
