Episode 48- Neill Blomkamp and Oats Studios- Three Short Films

Neill Blomkamp is known for such films as ELYSIUM, CHAPPIE, and DISTRICT 9. Once upon a time, he also tried to develop a few films that never made it off the ground, such as the WETA assisted HALO project, and an unused pitch for a new version of the ALIEN story, starring Sigourney Weaver.

But have you seen Blomkamps latest films? What if I told you it was only a matter of clicking a link and taking the time to watch them?

Neill Blomkamp as launched Oats Studios, an artist collective that’s released several projects, including some quick-bite skit-like videos; and three fully realized short films that function both as self-contained narrative and as a pitch reel for a potential future project.

The three short films we cover in tonight’s episode are:
