Neill Blomkamp Makes Sci-Fi Shorts in Oats Studios Trailer

Titled Oats Studios Volume 1, the man behind District 9 and Elysium just released the first teaser trailer for his brand new experimental series which will showcase insane new material from the sci-fi director.

The first trailer, which is simply titled Oats: Volume 1, appears to be a science fiction tale, with shots of aliens and discussions that aliens have landed on Earth with the sole objective of wiping us out. District 9 started life as a short film remember.

First announced by the Oscar-nominated writer of District 9 in April, Blomkamp confirmed that the Oats Studios project was progressing earlier this month, tweeting to his followers that he was "trying ideas out", and "hoping people get behind them".




Dubbed Oat Studios Volume 1, the project aims to distribute an experimental series of short science fiction films to fans via online streaming and is now eyeing different distribution methods.

"The new world altered everyone", the trailer's narrator says, though she could be talking about the film industry. "Adapt or die. It was a simple as that".

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. Blomkamp later posted some mysterious images to Twitter, showing off one of the aliens seen in the trailer, as well as a Vietnam-era soldier. Oats will be released on Steam. If he goes with that binary distribution model, it would make his short film project experimental in more ways that one.
