Andy Signore (Creator of ScreenJunkies & Honest Trailers)

is creating Rebuilding a fun new nerd brand that's not afraid to call out BS

My name is ANDY SIGNORE  and over the years I've created some extremely popular stuff that you may have seen online like  Honest TrailersMovieFightsits home ScreenJunkies, as well as the award-winning blacksmithing series Man At Arms and its channel AWEme.

  

I got Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to marry one of his biggest super-fans. I helped Nick Offerman teach everyone how to grow a moustache. I created Prank It FWD, where we did pranks for good, and got the chance to give a deserving maid, the new house she was brought in to clean.

    
I won an MTV Movie Award in 2007 for my popular spoof United 300. I helped Kevin Nealon & Jimmy Kimmel make a sex tape. I created Lady Pasta for the popular kids series The Annoying Orange earning over 51 million views. 

  

Long story short I loved making content for people, and have an immense skill for creating sharable content, with my work earning over 1 BILLION VIEWS online.

In 2017, I got caught online making some deeply personal mistakes that greatly affected my life and many I loved. I was a serial cheater in my marriage, and was caught flirting online with my fans. One of those fans exploited these inappropriate transgressions, turning a completely consensual affair - into false allegations of sexual assault and abuse.

While my flirtation with fans as a content creator was indeed questionable and a mistake - It was the specific criminal charges that crippled me - turning any flirtatious advances I ever made into malicious and predatory behavior. My fanbase and colleagues upset with the news - and caught up in the first few days of the #MeToo movement, bought my false accuser’s story hook, line and sinker.

They allowed her to lead a social media mob to not only terminate my employment, but scorch my name and livelihood in the process.

I didn’t know how to prove my innocence in a “he said / she said” accusation like this - until I realized that google had archived all of my deleted messages - allowing me to revisit our chat logs, emails and photos, - and proving my accuser was lying. Recently I settled my case, and most importantly I released a video that finally showed the truth. I implore you all to watch it in full when you can.


The response has been overwhelming. Many have been shocked by the truth, but many media outlets won't cover my story. They don't want to report they were wrong. News outlets love to post the salacious accusations, but not the retractions.

I just want to get back to making content for you all. But right now my name is still sullied. I need to rebuild and need your support to do so. I plan to get back to talking about movies like many of you asked - but I also intend to add more of these bigger topics: Hypocrisy online on both political sides, twitter mob justice, the problems of infidelity, abuse of power and much more...

I finally have my voice back, and the handcuffs of what I can discuss are off. Its time to get more honest than ever, and get back to taking the piss out of Hollywood:

  

Welcome to Popcorned Planet ! A mouthful I know - but I think of it as the Scorched Earth of Entertainment. Since I can't be a shill for the studios anymore, time to just get honest and be real about what I think. This is a new brand, with a new crew filled with genuine and talented people outside of the Hollywood system - to entertain and have fun taking on all sorts of pop culture content. This time around I intend for us to do it even better, on our own terms, without any studio politics stopping us from saying what we truly want to say. No forced smiles or fake friendships. Real conversations. A place to say whatever we want. A truly honest place to break down and discuss films, shows, games and social issues within our community.

My plan is to post daily videos, and LIVE videos every Wednesday. However with support from this Patreon, my plan is to create even more.

If you've ever been a fan of my work in the past... If you believe in growth and redemption stories... If you want to be on the ground floor of helping me build Phase Two... I implore you to join this Patreon to get involved. It will a place for you to get exclusive content, and offer direct feedback that I will take to heart.  And you will help me get to my goal of getting paid to make content again for you full-time. But this time YOU are my boss.

I've had so many supporters reach out to me privately, telling me they are afraid to support me publicly, due to the potential backlash in this online community. Its time to build a new space that's respectful, but not afraid to also speak its mind. One that can take accountability when it messes up.  With my background creating channels and your support - I know we can create a fantastic new destination.

I have many more concepts in the pipeline, and ongoing support of just a couple dollars a month by enough of you, can help me get it out to you. I hope some of you will join me on this exciting new journey, and support me as I continue to learn and keep moving forward.  I won't let you down!

You can see some of my new recent work here, to get an better idea of the kind of things to expect -

Supporter PLUS
$2 or more per month

You just wanna help a dollar more than the first tier... and because you went the extra mile, you'll get surprise access from time to time to exclusive posts and streams, just because I see you making that extra effort. You'll also get discord chat access.

Popcorned Planeteer

This is where we will likely go even more off the rails and answer YOUR specific topics. So come join us! These will  be archived and edited for other Patreon members to watch later, but you'll have seen it all live and first!


Nerd Warrior Level
$10 or more per month

You'll get to support our regular daily Popcorned Planet content,
and all the Patreon Only PLUS content...  But in this tier - YOU will be helping to support our popular Nerd Wars debate format. Its hard to organize without being able to finnancially focus on content  full-time. So you're support here not only gives you all of the above it also:

  • We will randomly select Patreon members of this level to Skype in to React to the show as we tape it
  • You'll be able to Submit Questions for us to fight on upcoming Lightning Rounds!
  • Gets us closer to going back to WEEKLY Nerd Wars if Patreon support grows fast enough. You'll be a pioneer.
  • And much more as we grow!



On Air Thank You! (Limited)
$25 or more per month

At this tier you'll receive all the previous benefits - But you will also be personally thanked either verbally or via a graphic, at the end of ONE episode following month of each $25 monthly contribution. Example: If your pledge is processed November 1st, your name will appear sometime in December. 

Be On a Show! (Limited)
$100 or more per month

You'll get all the previous level benefits, and the Nerd Warrior level, but after every two months of subscription, you'll get to Skype in to appear on one of our daily videos to talk about a topic with Andy! This will be edited, and must stay within topic. Andy has final cut of the edit. Must be available within his taping schedule.

Personal Skype Call with Andy (Limited)
$150 or more per month

You'll get all the previous level benefits, along with the Nerd Warrior level...  But this will give you a personal one on one 30 minute Skype consultation with Andy to discuss any personal project, web channel or web series you want advice on. With over a billion views, and multiple channels he's launched to much success - his creative advice and online experience is pretty solid. He'll give you his honest feedback and suggestions to inspire you, and you'll be supporting his future work when he needs it most. If you sustain this level for three months, he'll do an additional call.

Sponsor a Video (Limited)
$500 or more per month

You'll get all the previous level benefits, but since you've clearly gotten something bigger to prove, here's your chance to get in on the ground floor of sponsoring one of our videos, and your company's name living in that video FOREVER.


With this SPONSORSHIP level, you can show you're a true fan who's unafraid of your support of second chances, and the need to stand up to a world full of instant judgement and dangerous persecution.


We all deserve to be heard, to defend ourselves, to grow and to become better people.  At this level you'll put your money where your mouth is, and because of that we'll plug your company, brand, product, podcast, etc. In an episode of NERD WARS (or other show of our mutual agreement). There are a few conditions we'll need to talk about when you support at this level (as we don't want to support anything that's dangerous or against our personal beliefs). But if conditions are met, this guarantees ONE 5-10 second verbal call out.


If you continue to support at this level, the call-out may be repeated on another month's show, but only at the creator's discretion and ad availability.

I'm A Rich Badass: Lets fund a studio
$15,000 or more per month

You'll get all the previous PLUS PLUS level benefits, and the Nerd Wars Super Supporter level, but you are a true legend and believer in new healthier starts.


At this level you get to sponsor an upgraded new Podcast studio, and we will christen the studio with a name we mutually agree upon, that leans towards your legendary self.


If you were a fan of my work, were uncomfortable with the level of judgement, shame and ridicule I faced without ever getting the chance to share my side of the story - and have a boat load of money lying around- this is the tier for you. 


You will fund and name our new podcast studio, with all funds going straight to better crew and equipment to record live weekly content like I used to.

Goals
24 of 500 patrons
I'll commit to weekly LIVE NerdWars again... Or whatever format my Patreon supporters demand at that time. Its just very time-consuming to do ongoing without more financial support, so thats why they are sporadic.
