Neill Blomkamp Is Making Short Movies For Steam

Posted June 03, 2017

Neill Blomkamp is returning to his roots with Oats Studios. These short films would be heavily monster focused, and the studio would serve as a testing ground for potential full-scale films.

Although many fans were upset that filmmaker Neill Blomkamp, director of District 9, Elysium and Chappie, was no longer making his Alien sequel, they'd be happy to see his latest work in the new Oats Studios project. Well, it looks like the project is ready to go, if his new Oats: Volume 1 trailer is anything to go by.

The only word on a release is that these are "coming soon". The female narrator hints that the invaders came to exterminate humanity, and that the only choice is to adapt or die.

Blomkamp broke out with his highly acclaimed, 2009 sci-fi film District 9, which was based on his 2006 short film Alive in Joburg. Promoted as a "series of experiemental short films", Oats Studios Volume 1 is hopefully just the first of many planned shorts from Blomkamp's studio.

The Oats Studios shorts will be sold through the gaming streaming site Steam, though the director tweeted that there is scope for Volume 1 to be uploaded free-of-charge to YouTube. The first trailer for the production company has dropped, unveiling snippets of what appear to be some pretty slick sci-fi projects.

Blomkamp first revealed the project previous year after asking fans if they would be interested in purchasing short films off the (majorly) gaming platform Steam.
