Watch Neill Blomkamp’s Firebase, the 2nd Oats Studios short
Filmmaker Neill Blomkamp’s (District 9, Elysium, Chappie) Oats Studios has released its second short film, titled Firebase. Watch the action-packed short in the player below!
Firebase is the second independently made sci-fi short released by Oats Studios following the success of the Sigourney Weaver-starrer Rakka. Set during the Vietnam war, Firebase follows American soldier “Hines” through an ever-deepening web of science fiction madness. The fabric of space-time literally beginning to bend around him.
Oats Studios is bringing experimental short films to YouTube and Steam. Blomkamp previously took to Twitter to answer some questions about the project, confirming that Volume 1 of the series will have three shorts running about twenty minutes each.
“The goal is to see ‘if’ the audience likes them and ‘if’ they would be willing to pay for volume 2,” the director said. “They are too short to charge now.”
Blomkamp has also recently said he plans to make a follow-up to District 9, though not on the Oats Studios platform.
