Oats Studios Stands And Delivers with Rakka
Article by Aaron Haughton
Friday just got a whole heap better! Neil Blomkamp's been making waves in the news since the first delicious morsels of his experimental studio (Oats Studios) hit YouTube about 7 months ago. You can read our initial post about this news here.
After watching Blomkamp's first official Oats Studios short, Rakka, all I can say is, "Wow." Everything about this is as top notch as you'd expect, and I cannot personally wait to be given more.
Rakka presents us with a very bleak dystopian, yet not too faraway future. A place where the world has become overrun by goopy, morphing lizard aliens, who have enslaved most of humanity for extermination and experimentation, laying waste to our history and culture, covering our landmarks in dying humanity. The short stars Sigourney Weaver, and is diced into segments, taking place in Texas in the year 2020 (which I believe holds some tongue-in-cheek political commentary).
