Lease one or more shares of the screening right FOR THIS SCENE SLOT for the roving location as described below and send the produced version of your scene to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When the technology is deployed your scene will appear IN THE SCENE SLOT AS THE DEFAULT OPTION within produced screenings nearest the actual location of the actress who plays the protagonist (Queen/Empress or Queen/Empress-candidate) at the time of screening. The Mirror Empire Company (the “Company”) may or may not allow limited or full control over screening options to viewers, which may allow for viewers to select another actress playing the part, and such control or lack of such may change from time to time at the sole discretion of the Company.
Screening area shall be calculated with a squaring function laid over the globe relative to the population (potential viewers) in the area, with the area of population accruing to a specific Lessee pro rata to the number of leased screening right shares leased, that is, the potential audience will be divided by the number of lease payments received so far, and audience share shall be apportioned to each Lessee according to the number of shares leased. Audience share will be adjusted as more lease payments are received for additional scene shares. Rules and rights are otherwise as described in the plot outlined in the scripts or as listed by the the Company and may be altered from time to time at the sole discretion of the Company.
Lease payments are non-refundable. Lease is FOR ONE SCREENING YEAR. Each lease applies directly to one actress only, regardless of number of scene shares leased. Lessee is allowed one submission per scene only, unless otherwise negotiated, regardless of number of scene shares leased.
The actress and other actors depicting characters in the production must, originally, substantially follow the script. However, the Company may introduce new scripts from time to time, for new or revised productions. ALSO, THE SCRIPT MAY BE ALTERED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR THROUGH NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE COMPANY. ALSO, THIS SCENE MAY BE CONVERTED TO LIVE PERFORMANCES.
Lessee agrees to register the location of the ACTUAL INDIVIDUAL who plays the part of the queen/empress or queen/empress candidate for as long as the individual wishes to participate. If restricted by governing law, humanitarian or other pertinent considerations, lease may be terminated and lease rights re-leased. Lease payments will remain non-refundable in such case.
All scenes submissions are subject to approval by the Company. The Company reserves the right to screen its own or any other produced scene in the slot space of a leased scene slot before a submission is received and approved. The 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 produced and uploaded scenes meant for specific scene slots will be limited to a website application to the extent possible and will not be easily presentable on-demand as full productions. Lessees of the screening rights or shares of screening rights 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 Lessees for each scene will be adhered to, however, to inasmuch as possible safeguard and make valuable the investment of each Lessee as to any possible return whether monetary or in the form of influence or creative expression, though none is guaranteed.
