Oats Studios – Volume 1 – Firebase

Neill Blomkamp has been a very busy boy. Earlier Neill release to short film through Oats Studios, titled “Rakka.”  Now this time an 26:52 short film called “Firebase”.

Neill Blomkamp along with independent production studio, Oats Studios are producing some great experimental filmed content. Then  through various online platforms they will be able to raise additional funding by sale of more original digital content on Steam.  Their hope is that they will be able to then give what the fans want by financial support and feed back.  So in a small way each financial backer is a producer.

More From Oats Studios and Neill Blomkamps

A little while ago Scott let you know about a new experimental short film project from Neill Blomkamp. Well today Neill and Oats Studios gave us another view into this new project. Some “more weird shit” as it is mention in the trailer.

We get to see more of the effects coming and more action. Also we get to see Sigourney Weaver in this one. Some of the effects look dam impressive. This looks very, very interesting.

Take a look. Does this not interest you? Come on now just a little right?

Oat Studios- Volume 1 – Neil Blomkamps short film teaser

Oat studios(based out of Vancouver, Canada) is a gambit for Neil Blomkamp. He’s wondering if people will pay for short films that could be developed into full length films. I really think he is on to something. This teaser looks amazing.

I’m a bit bummed he never got his shot at the Aliens franchise but if this short clip is any indication he may very well have his own “Alien” franchise on his hands. If you look closely at this clip I swear that looks like Sigourney Weaver at 42 seconds. If she has interest in this style of film making ,I’m sold already.

I will admit the creatures look like a cross between Raptors and a Godzilla face but I’ve seen a lot worse make it to feature film. Exciting concept if it takes off. Can you imagine the future if studios can road test their films before they get greenlit? Would change the industry…for good or bad, I’m not sure…

Enjoy,Scott

Actual Old Man Logan

The people over at The Warp Zone gives us their newest parody and it is old man Logan. Wolverine takes on Father Time and finds him to be one of toughest opponents.  Logan is trapped in a old folks home and spends his time trying to escape. Loving tapioca pudding and talking about the old days.

It’s a fun short and I got a few giggles watching it. I hope you like it also.
