In this independent documentary film, journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun travels on a personal journey of discovery to uncover this mysterious phenomenon. Along the way she meets scientists, researchers, influencers, and volunteers who shed light on the effects of our rabid plastic consumption and learns the problem is more insidious than we could have ever imagined.

In today’s media, the status quo can flip so abruptly that news outlets are forced to reshape themselves. On January 1, 2014 as recreational marijuana explodes off the shelves of Colorado dispensaries, The Denver Post is telling the story. The Cannabist is the first pot section of a major newspaper and Ricardo Baca, the world’s first marijuana editor sets out to report history in the making with a team of straight-laced staff writers and offbeat freelancers. Policy news, strain reviews, parenting advice and edible recipes are the new norm on a new beat: pot journalism. Legalization is an experiment for society and a risk for the dying industry of newspapers to hedge its bets on a new one.

Kickstarter Mobile App Project!

Please support our Kickstarter campaign to raise funds so that we can have a mobile app developed. This is something that has been asked of me many times in the past. I am really hoping that we can blow away the goal and have a really spectacular app!

You can find the project here and below is the text from the project page. Scroll below for a list of backers which will also be displayed on other pages in the near future.

“What do you mean Professor X is alive? He died in X-Men: The Last Stand!”

History of the Site

I started AfterCredits.com back in 2009 after seeing the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie. I had read about a scene after the credits so I stayed and saw the one with Deadpool. So the next weekend I saw it with a friend who is a Deadpool fan, so I told him that we needed to stick around for the bonus scene. Well, we stayed, but it was the one with Wolverine in the bar!

After that, I did some more research and found some sites that talked about one version and some that talked about the other and some that talked about both. I quickly realized that there wasn’t a good site out there that cataloged this sort of thing. So I took it upon myself to start my own!

It started out as a Wiki site at WhatsAfterTheCredits.com and had modest success. After a couple years I was getting increasingly frustrated with the lack of extra things that I couldn’t do on that platform so I changed the site to the WordPress format and shortened the name a bit to make it a little easier to remember and type.

Since then I have made tweaks here and there, adding more and more features (Mega Posts for trailers, interviews, stills, etc. and interactive polls such as if paying extra for 3D or IMAX was worth it) and trying to make it more mobile friendly.

The site has had a steady increase in popularity. Just 6 months ago having about 100k visitors a month and it has increased now to over 200k! It even hit 250k when Godzilla and X-Men: Days of Future Past were showing in theaters. 85% of my traffic is from mobile devices, showing a definite need for better mobile presentation and interaction.

Why I’m Doing This

As I stated previously the site is mostly mobile friendly, but I have been asked many times for a mobile phone app. Unfortunately, the site is basically a one man operation, me, and doesn’t generate very much income (~$10/month). Most of the expenses come out of my own pocket.

So that brings me to here. I could really use some help getting this completed. App development cost are high and very time consuming. I simply don’t have the resources anymore to make it happen.

About the App

The app will be used to check if a movie you are about to see has any bonus scenes that are shown either during or after the credits. Think X-Men: Days of Future Past or The Avengers. This will help you save time by not sticking around if there is in fact nothing. But it will also help you to not miss any important extra scenes that might not be apparent.

If by chance we don’t have information on a particular movie, you will also have the opportunity to submit the information to us so that others will know.

The app will also be able to access our “Mega Posts” which contain stills, posters, trailers, interviews, etc. for upcoming movies. It will also present our polling data for 3D or IMAX movies so that you can make a more informed decision on if it’s worth the extra cost to see it in those formats; as well as the ability to vote your thoughts on their worthiness.

I will be focusing on iPhone/iOS and Android to start and if I have enough funds will also make Windows and Blackberry phone versions.

Where will your donation go?

Every penny donated will go to the app development process. I will not be developing this myself however as I don’t have the know-how to do so. I have reached out to a number of developers and have received some quotes and that is how I came up with the minimum fundraising goal. App developers are expensive, so naturally, the more money that I can raise, the better and more feature rich the app will be.

After the funding is complete and the goal is achieved, I expect to have an app within a couple months after obtaining full funding. This would also be dependent on the developers availability and also barring any unforeseen development issues.

If the goal is not raised however, the app simply will not get made until I can personally save up enough for the development costs. This could take months or even years to be honest. Let’s all just hope that does not happen.

Thank you for taking time to look at this fundraiser and I hope you can help!

How will this app compare to others?

I have been asked to explain why this app would be different than any of the others that are out there.  I have made this handy comparison chart to show my hopes for this app.  As noted some of the items will depend on funding, but even without that, you can see it will be a very feature rich application!
