"I have known of Linda Nelson's Indie Rights for many years and her outstanding reputation in the industry, particularly among filmmakers,"
Since its founding in 2007 by Nelson and Michael Madison, Indie Rights has distributed over 1,000 independent films around the world. Known in the industry as an innovator, Indie Rights first digital feature was the first movie on Amazon's UnBox (the predecessor of Amazon Video). With partnerships forged early on with leading digital platforms, Indie Rights represents its titles every year at AFM and Cannes Film Market.
"Indie Rights is very excited about releasing this fascinating look at the possibility that aliens have been living among us for quite some time. We all ponder the possibility, but this is a movie that really helps us to imagine the plausibility of such a concept," said Nelson. "As we are pushing towards space once again, I think everyone is again wondering about the existence of alien life."
The idea behind First Signal began over ten years ago when Lund wrote the screenplay First World. The origins of that story revolve around the Apollo space program. With NASA and private space contractors planning a return to the Moon, extrasolar planets being discovered on a regular basis and new communication technologies on the horizon, the timing for First Signal could not be better. First Signal doesn't seek to answer the question if we are alone in the universe, but what would the world do if an alien presence was already here. The sequel to First Signal will be First Launch.
First Signal is scheduled for release in the 2nd quarter of 2021.
First Signal stars Paul Noonan (General John Reager), Conor Timmis (Cedric Yonah), Wendy Hartman (President Helen Colton), Patience McStravick (Major Ellen Sampson) and Stephanie Eaton (National Security Advisor Elisabeth Seward). Featuring Chris Goodwin (James Griffith), Michael Anthony Coppola (Senator Paul Hadrian), Lindy Nettleton (Prime Minister Allison Colby) and Yefim Somin (Russian President Sergei Tupolov). Secret Service Agents, David Afflick (Lead Agent), David Matthew Jenkins, Jeff Bouffard, Eli Ward and AJ Cvan.
