A few days ago filmmaker Neill Blomkamp released a teaser for his newest project. It’s not a new film. It’s not a concept for the next Alien film. It might be better than that. Blomkamp is the creative mind behind District 9 and Elysium. Rumors hit the internet that he may get a crack at the Alien franchise when concept sketches showed up online. Unfortunately and unfairly that has been squashed.
What rises from the ashes is a new incredible platform from Blomkamp in the form of a new studio called OATS. The teaser features several short films that look absolutely bonkers in the best way possible. The first release are Experimental Short Films: Volume 1. Packing some star power with Dakota Fanning and Sigourney Weaver. If all goes well with Volume 1 we may see a volume 2. Beyond that my hope is to see some of these shorts come to life on the big screen.
OATS kicked things off with their first film from Volume 1 titled RAKKA.
The creature has the destinctive Blomkamp stamp of design along with the general astehtic of the film. Fantastic work for a short film. I can’t wait to see what else OATS has for us in the future!
