Teaser alert: Neill Blomkamp’s new sci-fi project, Oats Studios looks epic!


Local film director Neill Blomkamp has gained international recognition over the past few years thanks to his first major feature film, District 9 which rose to critical acclaim. While his two features thereafter -Elysium and Chappie- didn’t get quite the same reception, they both did relatively well and gained their own cult following.

Since the mixed reception of Chappie’s release, fans have been eager for the release of Blomkamp’s next piece of work. Earlier this year he dropped hints at a new project on Twitter when he asked his followers if they would be interested in watching a series of short films. While most details about the project have been vague since then, we now have confirmation of a new release on the horizon – Oats Studios. Said to be a series of experimental sci-fi films which will be aired on the digital platform Steam and released in the next couple of months.

In a nutshell, the trailer seems typical of his style of work, however, it’s also eye-catching and looks action packed enough to keep us tuned in. Check out the epic trailer below and let us know your thoughts.
