The official site for Oat Studios has also launched, but so far, it simply says "we make experimental short films".
When asked about his plans for making money on the venture, Blomkamp tweeted that fans could "hopefully pay for Volume 2" or perhaps "go to theatres to see [a] feature adapted from one of the shorter films". Titled Oats Studios Volume 1, the man behind District 9 and Elysium just released the first teaser trailer for his brand new experimental series which will showcase insane new material from the sci-fi director.

Dubbed Oat Studios Volume 1, the project aims to distribute an experimental series of short science fiction films to fans via online streaming and is now eyeing different distribution methods. "Adapt or die, it was as simple as that".
Oats: Volume 1 is coming soon. I honestly feel that Blomkamp is one of the most engaging sci-fi directors working today, so seeing this trailer brings me nothing but joy. Sigourney Weaver is in the movie, alongside Dakota Fanning. As noted by io9, Blomkamp has previously expressed a desire to use Valve's Steam as a distribution for short films, but neither the teaser video nor the web page confirm that. The voiceover in the trailer hauntingly explains, "We were once mankind, we were humanity, they came here to exterminate us ... a new world altered everyone". Most importantly, check out this very cool teaser trailer and let us know what you think!
