Neill Blomkamp Is Making Short Movies For Steam

Adjust Comment Print

Blomkamp famously got his start by directing short films, including Tetra Vaal, Alive in Joburg, Yellow and Tempbot.

Neill Blomkamp's planned Alien film may have been scrapped, at least according to Ridley Scott, but the District 9 filmmaker isn't letting that slow him down. A new trailer, released today, for a short film now named "Volume 1" will stream on Steam "soon".

Director Neill Blomkamp has just dropped an enigmatic teaser trailer for one of his short film projects.

The studio's first film is now dubbed Volume 1, if its teaser trailer on YouTube is anything to go by; foraging back through Blomkamp's Twitter timeline, meanwhile, throws up another possible title: Rakka.

The only word on a release is that these are "coming soon". Oh, and isn't that Sigourney Weaver tucked away in there? "The new world altered everyone", says the foreboding female voiceover. "Adapt or die. It was as simple as that".

But before all that, in 2007, Blomkamp steered an official, seven-minute short set in the universe of blockbuster action game Halo, as human soldiers and monstrous brutes tussled over a piece of high-value equipment. He released the first trailer for the experimental filmmaking venture titled Oats Studio, detailing some of the studio's upcoming projects. If you want to keep up to date on Oats Studios' stuff, their Twitter account is also worth a follow.

Still, it's clear that Blomkamp is keen on using Valve's distribution platform in one way or another, with the director tweeting that "extras like 3D models/Vfx assets/concept art/all the raw footage/all music etc", could end up on Steam "for a nominal price".
