Neill Blomkamp's Next Project Teases New Horrors And An Alien Invasion

Watch The First Trailer For District 9 Director's New Short Film Coming To Steam

He first rose to prominence with a series of impressive short films like Alive in Joburg, which served as the inspiration for the blockbuster District 9 (which earned four Academy Award nomination).

Neill Blomkamp is embarking on an experimental filmmaking venture that he's calling Oats Studios. His new production company-Oats Studio-has released their first trailer for what will apparently be a series of experimental films. Blomkamp's best known efforts are all set amidst science fiction dystopias in which aliens and robots often play large roles, from Chappie's armour-plated attack androids to District 9's sickly extraterrestrials. Sigourney Weaver is in the movie, alongside Dakota Fanning. "Adapt or die. It was a simple as that". If the following preview is any indication, the return to the short film format may have reinvigorated his imagination, after two films in a row that seemed to have difficulties stretching their high-concept sci-fi ideas into feature-length narratives. The voiceover in the trailer hauntingly explains, "We were once mankind, we were humanity, they came here to exterminate us ... a new world altered everyone".

And... well... let's just say that we weren't impressed by what AMD showcased (as there was tearing during that demo). Intel recently announced five Core i9 CPUs supporting 44 PCIe lanes, the least expensive of which is priced at $999.

The ensuing trailer tells us a fair bit about what to expect, and exemplifies everything we love about Blomkamp's style of sci-fi story telling.

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.

Duane Allman spent time in the Shoals before the formation of the Allman Brothers band , working as a studio guitarist. In its heyday, the band was a staple on radio stations and released albums ranked among the best in rock history.

Via io9, the teaser for Oat Studios Volume 1 paints a picture of a devastating alien invasion, that's apparently left Earth at the mercy of lizard-like aliens and Paris overrun by vegetation. If you want to keep up to date on Oats Studios' stuff, their Twitter account is also worth a follow.
