Oats Studios “Volume 1” Trailer 2
It’s rare that I look forward to seeing a short film or a series of short films. That is the case with Oats Studios Experimental Short Films – “Volume 1”. I wasn’t always a fan of short films just like I wasn’t always a fan of short stories. Both situations have changed in recent years.
Like with the first teaser for Volume 1, the viewer isn’t given specific plot details for each of the three short film story lines in the trailer. What the viewer is given are snippets of new footage that intrigue and build anticipation for their online release.
Neill Blomkamp‘s short films in Volume 1 are ushering in a new interactive paradigm. Blomkamp plans on letting fans of the short films remix them. This will be possible by Blomkamp making all the short films’ visual and audio files available to the public for reconfiguration. He mentioned these facts in a recent interview:
The more I thought about that, the more it became, ‘What if the users had access to all of the 3D files that we used for the visual effects?’ If we just gave that away with any one-time purchase and you could render stuff yourself? Or what if we just give away all of the raw footage of one of the pieces, and anyone in the audience could they recut the the entire thing themselves? Stems from all of the music, or voiceovers from the actors; I just wanted to open it up and let people remix it.
Volume 1 (2017) stars Dakota Fanning and Sigourney Weaver.
