Purchase one or more screening right shares and send the produced version of your scene to firstname.lastname@example.org. Scenes will appear within produced screenings nearest the photography location, as referenced by GPS coordinates (geo-location) and/or verified address, and calculated with a squaring function laid over the globe relative to potential viewers in the area, with the area of population accruing to a specific Buyer pro rata to the number of purchased screening right shares. Rules and rights are otherwise as described in the plot outlined in the scripts.
Multiple shares may be purchased for the same location. Purchases are non-refundable. Scene slot screening rights may be resold to another party with permission from the Mirror Empire Company (the “Company”), which permission shall not be unreasonably withheld. All scene submissions are subject to approval by the Company. The Company reserves the right to screen its own or any other scene in the slot space of a purchased scene before a submission is received and approved. Company agrees that approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.
The Mirror Empire project is a tentative proposition with risk involved for everyone who participates. The envisioned outcome is a participatory movie that screens in customized versions, to include localized and regionalized content, with each screening. To enable these screenings an editing and screening engine that takes into account the location of each screening and has the ability to insert scenes into an overall production must be brought online and made operative. Such technology is believed to be well within the reach of current capabilities but has not yet been produced. Until such time, screenings of purchased, produced, and uploaded scenes meant for specific scene slots will be limited to a website application and will not be easily presentable on-demand as full productions. Buyers of the screening rights or shares are made aware that this is the first of this type of venture and each is shouldering the risk and burden of a pioneer. The Mirror Empire Company will act in good faith to realize the full creative possibilities inherent in this project as envisioned, and to promote and integrate the creative products of its participants. However, no promises can be reasonably made at this time as to ultimate outcomes. The limits on the numbers of Buyers and so forth for each scene will be strictly adhered to, however, to inasmuch as possible safeguard and make valuable the investment of each Buyer as to any possible return whether monetary or in the form of influence or creative expression, though none is guaranteed.
