Neill Blomkamp’s Oats Studios has just released another bite-sized experimental short in the form of God: Serengeti. The film is the shortest in Volume One so far, running a little less than 4 minutes in length and reunites Blomkamp with frequent collaborator Sharlto Copley (Disrict 9, Elysium).
The short can be watched via the Oats Studios Channel on YouTube or on Steam (or indeed below) and depicts God (Copley) lounging in a comfortable drawing-room with his butler, Jeffrey. In front fo the pair is a table showing packs of elephants and groups of Neanderthals wandering around what looks like a map of Africa.
The sketch plays out mainly for comedic value but shows a delightfully vicious streak as God toys with humanity like he’s controlling a warped version of the Sims.
