EPISODE 45: Paging Mr. Blomkamp (Oats Studios Short Films)

“Why we gotta talk about people?”


Neill Blomkamp is a big name in Sci-Fi, unless you were to ask Kevin. In this episode we take a look at three separate short films from Blomkamp’s OATS STUDIOS:  Firebase, Rakka and Zygote.

We discuss each one individually and as a whole.  Taking the ride on these meant different things for each of us.  What do they mean to you?  Check them out for FREE on YouTube and then check us out.
