Lease one or more screening right shares and send the produced version of your scene to firstname.lastname@example.org. Multiple shares may be purchased for the same location.
Scenes will, in the future, appear within produced screenings nearest the location of the registrant, as referenced by technology only imagined at this point in time. Potential screening audience share will be 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 Lessee pro rata to the total number of purchased screening right shares for the scene.
Lease of the screening right expires at the end of the calendar year for which it was purchased. Only one scene submission per year will be allowed for each Lessee. Lessee’s who purchase more than one screening right share will have a larger potential audience share but will still only be able to submit one scene per year, which scene is designed to screen in that year’s production. Rules and rights are otherwise as described in the plot outlined in the scripts. Lease payments are non-refundable. All scenes submissions are subject to approval by the Mirror Empire Company (the “Company”). The Company reserves the right to screen its own or any other produced scene in the slot space of a purchased scene before a submission is received and approved. The Company agrees that approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. However, multiple rejections will result in the termination of the lease without refund. The Company reserves the right to determine how many rejections, and under what criteria, a Lessee’s lease may be terminated.
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 scenes within leased scene slots may be limited to a website application and will not be easily presentable on-demand as full productions. Lessees 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 Lessees and so forth for each scene will be generally 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.
