In the early 1960's NASA discovered a vast and advanced civilization on the Moon with their first space probes. While this civilization was able to shield itself from all Earth-based visual detection devices, President Kennedy's speech from 1961 that declared the intent to "Put a man on the Moon and return him safely to the Earth" was not designed as a space race with the Soviet Union, but to secretly establish contact with this newly discovered civilization. This discovery was classified and false images from the Moon were transmitted during all the Apollo missions. When the Earth mission of this new civilization was discovered, political forces demanded that President Nixon end manned missions to the Moon in 1972. First World commences in the year 2018 when the Chinese government announces it is making its first manned mission to the Moon within 24 hours. What does this civilization represent?

Somebody had a vision
6 March 2008 | by cskippy2000See all my reviews

This project was screened at ConQuesT 38 in Kansas City, and it received by far the most positive response of all the indie work at the convention. It's innovative, and has a fantastic premise and completely believable mythology. The effects were outstanding, given the limitations of being independent. This is the kind of work that deserves attention and further development. It's my understanding that a feature length film is being planned, but it's my opinion that a series would be much more effective. There is a lot of story to tell here, and I'm not sure it could be told in a couple hours. Just my opinion. Search this out, find it, and watch it. Odds are, you'll dig it.
