(The wedding of Ben + Carolyn)


A lot of hard work and resources are being put into this project. To avert any copyright or other claims that could make the results of our efforts unusable for financial or other reasons, guests and participants agree as set out below. (In layman's terms, the main idea is that if, for example, you are recorded at the wedding/performance/screening/shoot, or you provide a paper flower for the event, you agree that Carolyn will have the right to use the flower or recordings of it or you – but you should read the details below to understand the full meaning of this Release.)

You may have been invited to attend and appear at the wedding/performance/screening/shoot scheduled for Saturday, September 17, 2011, at 337 Singleton Blvd., Dallas, TX (together with any and all other events, video, or other works relating to The Wedding Project as contemplated in this website, the "Project"), or you may be helping with the Project, or you may have provided or hereafter provide props, video, photographs, or other works to be used in the Project; and for purposes of this release, any and all of the foregoing, which may include your name, likeness, image, voice, interview, performance, activities, services, and any works or other property you bring with you or otherwise provide at or for use in connection with the Project, are collectively called your "Performance."

In exchange for your admission to the wedding/performance/screening/shoot or the appearance of any of your works at such event or in any other event, video, or other work relating to the Project, you authorize Carolyn Sortor (the "Artist") and her helpers to record your Performance (as defined above) on still or moving film, audiotape, videotape, digital recording or any other format, and to use, edit, modify, alter, copy, digitize, broadcast, distribute, publish or publicly exhibit, display or perform your Performance or any portions thereof (including stills) in the Project and/or in any other production or work, in print, audio, video, television, internet broadcast or otherwise on the internet or in any and all other media now known or hereafter invented, for purposes of art, illustration, commerce, promotion or any other purpose whatsoever, in perpetuity, throughout the world, at the sole discretion of the Artist.
