Angel Studios–the platform empowering creators to crowdfund, create, and then distribute films and TV series globally with full creative control is excited to congratulate its feature-length documentary–AFTER DEATH–in gaining enough box office success to generate a return for the 1,857 Angel Guild investors who funded the film’s theatrical marketing budget (otherwise known as P&A).
“Once again, the Angel Guild members who invested in an Angel distributed theatrical release are getting a return,” said Neal Harmon, CEO and Co-Founder at Angel Studios. “We’ve previously seen this happen for the Angel Guild who helped launch HIS ONLY SON and SOUND OF FREEDOM. We’re thrilled, but not surprised, that those individuals who funded the P&A for AFTER DEATH are seeing a return. Three for three so far”
Upon its release on October 27, AFTER DEATH launched as the #12 Documentary Opening of all time, and quickly achieved the title of Top Grossing Faith Documentary in History. Investors have already received a notification with details about how they can receive their 120% payout.
P&A stands for “Prints and Advertising,” and is a theatrical industry term referring to when movies were printed onto physical film. The term is still widely used today to describe the cost of taking a finished movie and marketing it for theatrical release.
AFTER DEATH is a captivating and thought-provoking exploration into the enigmatic question that has fascinated humanity for centuries: “What happens when we die?” Through personal accounts, philosophical discussions, and scientific research, the film takes viewers on a profound journey of discovery.
