It isn’t the Alien movie we wanted from Neil Blomkamp, but the first short film for his experimental Oats Studios project DOES have aliens and Sigourney Weaver. It also has some pretty gnarly visuals so, this one is best watched outside of work.
RAKKA is the story of broken humanity following the invasion of a technologically superior alien species. Bleak harrowing and unrelenting, the humans we meet must find enough courage to go on fighting.
Additional short films in the Volume 1 collection are on the way, but Oats Studios plans to expand into additional Volumes and even feature films. The goal is to fund these projects through audience support. To that end, donations are accepted through the Oats Studios website, and downloadable assets from Rakka for aspiring filmmakers can be downloaded here.
