Director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) is continuing to tell alien invasion stories but in a new “experimental” way. He has created a new studio called Oats Studio. This project is for “experimental” short form projects. The trailer for Oats Studio Volume 1 feels perfectly like a Blomkamp story in every good way. It seems like the delivery system for the films is where the experimental part of the mission comes in.
The studio plans to release the films for free on YouTube while offering paid versions streaming with bonus features. I believe a further goal of these films are to be proof of concept. If they become popular it is easier for the director to convince studios not to tinker with them in a bigger feature film setting.
Take a look at this first trailer and get excited along with us!
