The mysterious little video above, which is credited to District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, appeared in the most recent iPad edition of Wired magazine. Slashfilm did some sleuthing, and they may have found a clue in the form of the stamp on the side of the alien-looking swine, which reads “AGM Heartland.”
Here is what I’ve discovered. 18.12 is the number of the issue of WiReD that this video appears in. I did some searching and found out that a Beverly Hills-based company named Sable Productions Ltd. filed for the trademark “AGM Heartland” on October 18th 2010. The trademark use is labeled as:
“Entertainment services by way of an online website with video, audio and textual content and images featuring characters and storylines about a fictional genetic engineering company that produces genetically engineered and altered organisms.”
The fact that it mentions only online and not theatrical or television makes me think it’s not related to a film project … but you never know.
