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, inasmuch as possible, and will not be easily presentable on-demand as full productions. The Lessee of the screening rights or shares is made aware that this is the first of this type of venture and agrees and acknowledges that it, she or he is shouldering the risk, burden and hardship generally associated with that of a pioneer. The Lessee agrees with the Mirror Empire Company to 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. No promises are made at this time as to ultimate outcomes. The limits on the numbers of Lessees for each scene will be maintained, 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.
