Alive in Joburg - The short that Inspired District 9

Neill Blomkamp, the Director of District 9, looks back on District 9 and reveals his future with Halo in this interview with Creativity. The director had launched into the project after spending nearly half a year trying to bring the popular Halo franchise to the big screen with producer Peter Jackson, only to be booted off the project by the film studios. Now it looks like the young talent's naysayers should be eating huge heaps of humble pie. D9 crushed the competitors at the box office, earning $37 million during its opening weekend and drawing raves from the critics, some who have even called it the next "sci-fi classic." Just check out the short that inspired the movie, so innovative and visionary!
