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

With his proposed Alien sequel no longer on the cards, Neill Blomkamp has been keeping himself busy with a new experimental filmmaking venture.

It'll be interesting to see if Blomkamp is able to find success on the unique platform, and with the now underlooked style of short films.

Over the past few days, District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp has been teasing a new creative project over on Twitter. Well, it looks like the project is ready to go, if his new Oats: Volume 1 trailer is anything to go by.

Blomkamp broke out with his highly acclaimed, 2009 sci-fi film District 9, which was based on his 2006 short film Alive in Joburg.

Blomkamp has been teasing hints about Oats Studios for the previous year, asking if fans would be interested in buying films off of Steam, and posted some intriguing images to Twitter, showing off one of the aliens seen in the trailer, as well as a Vietnam-era soldier. Known as Oats Studios "Volume 1," these films aren't coming to the art-house cinema or even YouTube.

"Oats Studios Volume 1" is among the experimental short films made by Blomkamp's Oats Studios for distribution online.

Details related to Oats Studios are scant, but a teaser posted to the company's YouTube channel offers a first look at the sort of content it plans to serve up. "Adapt or die, it was as simple as that", adds the voiceover. While the famous director is still yet to confirm which streaming platforms he'll be using, a recent tweet suggests that he could stream these movies over Steam.
