We'll this is not new.. but I feel i'd rather see a full movie version of that instead of a new Alien with Ripley (either 5 or prequel).

I figured it was old news to some ignorantGuy but I searched to see if anyone had cited here and didn't see any discussion on it. I thought the graphics were amazing and I chose to take a chance and spent time updating those who had yet to see Rakka.

I just saw this in the past few days and was intrigued by the black goo that surrounded the creature.

To those who haven't seen it, enjoy.

To those that have seen it, enjoy.

I’ve cited OATS studios in the past and (without going through all previous posts) I think Chris produced a major post on OATS studios, but I think interest in it was obscured by other major news posts here at the time. It’s good to see someone has drawn attention to it again. I’ve seen all the Volume one shorts and there are some good shorts in there. On the other hand, and it is something which I have mentioned in the past, is that I feel Blomkamp is going though a bit of a transition and developmental period, which is why I had made critical remarks about him pursuing the Alien franchise. I’d like to see where he is once he has spent a little more time perfecting whatever he is trying to achieve, but I reckon that stuff like Rakka gives a good indication of where he is trying to go.

Although OATS is something of a creative platform for Blomkamp, I would seriously take a look at the DUST  Sci-fi shorts platform as it serves as a good comparison against OATS to see what creative talent is in the pipeline.

If you like Rakka and get through binge watching the rest of Volume 1, I would highly recommend Blomkamps short series ADAM.

Well, Ingeniero, I had never seen this and thank you for sharing. This is good stuff and it would be great to see a full length. Glad to see Siggy still has it!

DUST is new to me and this short/trailer looks great too Batchpool. It seems to give a lot of away though. Looks like another interesting take on what it is to be human.

To be fair i think Blomkamp could do a decent job, however he would need someone to come in and take his ideas, throw in Ridley Scott to change them a little then get SOMEONE else in to do a Good Draft.

A story that incorporates Blomkamps ideas and Ridley Scotts, HOWEVER.....  i dont think we need to have a movie that replaces Alien 3 on-wards...

I had a idea for a Alien Resurrection Sequel, that could use a Miss Weaver, and get away with the Age Difference, especially in a Humanoid like Ripley 8 who you would not expect to AGE

Now if i could throw them my Ideas, allow Blomkamp and Ridley Scott to add/change some parts and then have Blomkamp Direct and Ridley Scott Produce... then maybe we could have some Alien Movie that allows for some of his ideas and also a way for Miss Weaver to be cast.

Thank you Batchpool. I must have missed the extended coverage of Oats Studios when I stepped away for a while, a couple of times. Oats Studios certainly deserves the coverage. And I think you're on to something with Dust, above and below. I will watch all of the DUST films on my TV screen opposed to computer when I'm able.

"I feel Blomkamp is going though a bit of a transition and developmental period, which is why I had made critical remarks about him pursuing the Alien franchise."

That is a great way to put it. You also make a great point with the talent in the pipeline in regards to the content. 

"A story that incorporates Blomkamps ideas and Ridley Scotts, HOWEVER.....  i dont think we need to have a movie that replaces Alien 3 on-wards..."

Amen brother BigDave.

Yes dk. It looks like AI sci-fi is here to stay. This really is a great planet.

That is something that I haven't watched but I would rather watch more short movies with Weaver rather than Alien 5. I would rather get new and interesting movies rather than a Predator 6 (I do not know how many Predator movies there are but you get the point), Lethal weapon 5, and so on.
