Neill Blomkamp's Oats Studios Releases a Monster-Filled Teaser Trailer

Neill Blomkamp's Oats Studios Releases a Monster-Filled Teaser Trailer

Blomkamp has been dropping hints regarding the new venture for the past year on Twitter, revealing that the experimental short films are being used as testing ground for feature films.

According to The Verge, Blomkamp started his career with short films.

Neill Blomkamp, the visionary director behind District 9, Elysium, and Chappie, has found a way to get his ideas onto big and small screens without necessarily involving the sometimes ponderous Hollywood studio system. There is a lot going on in this trailer "Volume 1", as the action bounces around between a number of different scenes containing aliens, shootouts in the jungle, and what looks like the Eiffel Tower after nature has reclaimed it.

Oats: Volume 1 is coming soon. 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. However, it does seem likely that the shorts will share the same world, as the teaser appears to show different people attempting to survive the new order and even soldiers at war. The trailer also harks back to the short films Blomkamp made prior to the critical success of District 9.

Details related to Oats Studios are scant, but a teaser posted to the company's YouTube channel offers a first look at the sort of content it plans to serve up. Most importantly, check out this very cool teaser trailer and let us know what you think! While the famous director is still yet to confirm which streaming platforms he'll be using, a recent tweet suggests that he could stream these movies over Steam.
