Neill Blomkamp’s VFX-centric production company Oats Studios is on a mission to release its very first set of sci-fi shorts on YouTube in the not too distant future.
Volume 1 is expected to feature some familiar Hollywood faces such as Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley, and Dakota Fanning. A second trailer has just been unleashed to give viewers another glance at some of the bloody chaos to come.
According to Blomkamp, who previously directed District 9 and Elysium, mentioned on Twitter that the short films will stream for free forever. However, Volume 2 could be priced if fans are willing to pay for lengthier versions.
Forever. The goal is to see “if” the audience likes them and “if” they would be willing to pay for volume 2. They are too short to charge now.
Blomkamp tried to develop a sequel to Aliens, but the project never came to fruition. His new VFX studio is a project to give young filmmakers creative freedom to make unique and exciting new films.
