Neill Blomkamp was born in Johannesburg (Joburg), South Africa but immigrated to Vancouver, Canada when he was eighteen years old and later ended up working as a 3D animator in America. His life changed after making a short film titled Alive In Joburg, which impressed The Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson so much that Blomkamp was invited to turn his short into a feature film. The result was the critically acclaimed District 9. Blomkamp’s next feature Elysium is set to open this summer on August 13 starring Matt Damon and Jodi Foster.
