number of square feet in the Building in which Lessor does not provide such

          iii.  All charges for heat, water, gas, electricity, sewer service and
any other utility service used or consumed in the Building or Grounds at

judgment of Lessor, require the repair or replacement of an item (such as
carpet, extensive repainting, or the like which item exceeds a cost of $2,000.00

which is the number of months remaining in the Lease term and any renewal
options and the denominator of which shall be the useful life expectancy of the

shall compute the difference between the Operating Costs which Lessee has paid
during the calendar year and Lessee's actual proportionate share of Operating
Costs due and owing for that year and the additional rent based on operating
costs shall be adjusted accordingly.  The adjusted operating costs for the
previous calendar year shall be divided



by twelve (12) to establish the additional monthly rental based on operating
costs during the following calendar year.  Upon written request from Lessee,
Lessor agrees to provide written reconciliation of Operating Costs to Lessee.

determination or calculation.  Promptly after the giving of notice, Lessee shall
cause to be made a complete audit of Lessor's records relating to the matter in
dispute by independent certified public accountants.  The cost of the audit
shall be borne by Lessee unless the audit discloses an error which favors Lessor
by more than 5% of the amount previously determined, in which event Lessor shall
bear the cost of the audit.  If the audit reveals that the amount previously
determined by Lessor was incorrect, a correction shall be made accordingly.
During the pendency of any such dispute, Lessee shall make payments based upon
Lessor's determination or calculation until the dispute has been resolved.


5.1  Lessee shall pay before delinquency, any and all taxes, assessments,
license taxes and other charges levied, assessed or imposed and which become

purposes or in any extraordinary amount and if it should appear that such
additional electric current is being utilized on a regular basis by Lessee,
shall upon demand by Lessor install at Lessor's expense a check meter and shall
pay monthly for the use of the additional current as shown on such check meter.

6.2  Lessor shall not be liable for failure to supply any heating, air
conditioning, elevator, janitorial or electrical service if by reason of
accident, unavailability of employees, repairs, alterations or improvements,
strikes, walkouts, riots, acts of God or any other happening beyond the control
of Lessor which renders Lessor unable to furnish such services.

6.3  Should Lessee determine that additional janitorial or other services are
necessary in the Premises because of the nature of Lessee's business, Lessee
shall notify Lessor to arrange such needs.  Lessor, at its option, may either
provide for such specific services and charge Lessee as additional rent the cost

such services.

coverage and insurance in such amounts as shall be deemed appropriate by Lessor.

coverage shall not be changed or canceled without thirty (30) days prior written
notice being given to Lessor.  Lessee acknowledges that Lessor does not carry
insurance with respect to the contents and interior of the leased
Premises and that Lessee assumes all risk with respect to same.

improvements in good condition and repair.  All glass and doors on the Premises

responsible for any repairs or maintenance required for any part of the
improvements of which the Premises are a part where such repair or maintenance
is necessitated by Lessee or activities conducted by Lessee, Lessee's employees,
guests, invitees or any person on the Premises.

8.2  Lessee shall have the right, at its own expense, to make reasonable
changes, alterations or improvements in the Premises of a value less than
$500.00 provided they in



no way damage the structure or mechanical systems of the Building.  Lessee shall
make no changes or alterations having a value in excess of $500.00 without first
having secured  the written consent of Lessor, at Lessor's sole discretion.

8.3  All trade fixtures, furniture and equipment installed and electrical
fixtures attached to or built upon the Premises by Lessee shall be considered
personal property of Lessee and may be removed by Lessee during the term of this
Lease, so long as Lessee shall not be in default under any provision of the

any insurance carried by Lessor is increased by the result of  Lessor's use,
Lessee shall pay to Lessor within ten (10) days of receipt of a certified
statement from Lessor's insurance carrier stating  that



the rate of increase was caused by the activity of  Lessee on the Premises a sum
equal to the difference between the original premium and the increased premium.

shall have the right to terminate this Lease upon written notice to the other.

11.2  Unless caused by Lessee's negligence, if the Premises or Building shall be
partially damaged by fire or other casualty but not rendered untenatable, as
determined by Lessor, Lessor shall, if it determines to do so, restore the
Premises or Building to substantially the same condition as immediately before
the destruction and the rent shall be reduced in proportion (proportion being
determined by the ratio which the number of square feet damaged or destroyed in
the subject Premises bears to the total square feet in the Premises) to the loss
of use of the Premises until restoration shall be substantially completed, as
reasonably determined by Lessor.

11.3  Unless caused by Lessee's negligence, if the Premises are rendered
untenatable by fire or other casualty, Lessee may, at its election, terminate

Lease, the rent shall be reduced in proportion to the loss of use of the
Premises by Lessee during such untenatability.

property of Lessee or others by theft or otherwise.

11.5  Lessee shall indemnify Lessor and save Lessor harmless from and against
any claims, actions, damages and liability in connection with loss of life,
personal injury or damage to property arising from or out of any occurrence on
the Premises, or from the occupancy or use of the Premises by Lessee, its
agents, contractors, employees, servants or of any other person entering upon
the Premises under express or implied invitation of Lessee.  In the event of any
proceeding at law or in equity wherein Lessor shall be named



a party to any litigation by reason of Lessee's interest in the Premises or in
the event Lessor shall be required to commence any legal proceedings pertaining
to the Premises or Lessee's occupancy or relation to the Premises, Lessor shall
be allowed and Lessee shall be liable for and shall pay all costs and expenses
incurred by Lessor, including a reasonable attorney's fee, as additional rent.

11.6  For purposes of the within agreement "tenantable" and untenantable" shall
be determined by Lessor and Lessee in the exercise of their reasonable judgment.


12.1  Lessor may terminate Lessee's rights under this Lease without prejudice to
any other rights or remedies of Lessor, if:

     a.  Lessee is adjudicated a bankrupt, or makes a general assignment for the
benefit of creditors, or voluntarily initiates any bankruptcy or similar
proceedings; or

     b.  A sheriff, Marshall, receiver or keeper takes possession of the
Premises by virtue of the appointment of any such officer or receiver by a court
of competent jurisdiction, or by virtue of any attachment, execution or lien
arising out of a debt of or judgment against Lessee, and the Premises are not
released from the possession of such officer or receiver and Lessee restored to
possession within one week after demand by Lessor.

12.2  In the event of such termination, neither Lessee nor any person claiming
through or under Lessee by virtue of any statute of if any order of any court
shall be entitled to possession or to remain in possession of the Premises but
shall immediately quit and surrender the Premises to Lessor.

12.3  Any other language herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the parties
acknowledge and agree that in the event Lessor terminates the within Lease, such
termination shall not operate and is not intended by the parties, to waive,
release, terminate or otherwise relieve Lessee of Lessee's obligation to pay all
sums which are or would otherwise become due through the full term of the within
Lease, including any extensions or renewals thereof which may be in effect at
the time of termination.


Lessee may not assign the Lease or sublet the Premises without the written
consent of Lessor first being obtained, such consent not to be unreasonably
withheld.  In the event Lessee wishes to sublease one office in their suite, no
consent shall be required from Lessor.




14.1  If at any time during the term of this Lease, the Premises are totally
taken by condemnation, this Lease shall terminate on the date of taking.  If any
portion of the Premises or  Building are taken by condemnation, this Lease shall
remain in effect except that Lessee may elect to terminate the Lease if the
Premises are rendered unsuitable for Lessee's continued use of the Premises.  If
the Lease continues the rent shall be reduced in proportion to the loss of the
use of the Premises.

14.2  If Lessee elects to terminate this Lease because the Premises or Building
have been partially taken by condemnation rendering the Premises unsuitable for
Lessee's continued use of the Premises, Lessee  must exercise its right to
terminate by giving notice to Lessor within thirty (30) days after the nature
and extent of the taking have been finally determined.  The termination shall be
effective not earlier than thirty (30) days nor later than sixty (60) days after
Lessee has notified Lessor of its election to terminate, except that Lessee
shall terminate on the date of taking if that date occurs prior to the date of
termination as designate by Lessee.


Lessee agrees that its Lease rights shall be subordinate to those of any lending
institution making any loan upon the property on which the Premises are located.
Subordination shall be effective without any further act of Lessee.  Lessee
shall from time to time on request of Lessor execute and deliver any documents
or instruments that  may be required by a lender to effectuate any
subordination.  If Lessee fails to execute and deliver any such documents or
instruments,  Lessee irrevocably constitutes and appoints Lessor as Lessee's
special attorney in fact to execute and deliver any such documents or


16.1  In the event of any failure of Lessee to pay any rental or other payment
due hereunder within ten (10) days after the same shall be due, or any failure
to perform any other of the terms, conditions or covenants of this Lease to be
observed or performed by Lessee for more than thirty (30) days after written
notice of such default, the Lessor may solely at Lessor's option, either bring
an action to enforce the Lease and recover any damages incurred or declare this
Lease terminated.  If terminated, all of the right, title and interest of the
Lessee hereunder shall wholly cease and expire and Lessee shall then immediately
quit and surrender the Premises and pay Lessor the amount of any damages
incurred.  In the event of such termination, Lessee shall nevertheless remain
obligated to Lessor pursuant to the terms of Lease as more specifically set
forth in Section 12.3 hereof.



16.2  If any default is of such a nature that it cannot with due diligence be
cured within thirty (30) days after notice to correct the default, Lessor shall
not be entitled to terminate the Lease if the Lessee shall have commenced to
cure such default within thirty (30) days and shall thereafter proceed with all
due diligence to complete the cure of such default.

16.3  If this Lease is terminated as herein provided and Lessee shall not have
immediately quit and surrendered the Premises to Lessor, the Lessee shall be
deemed guilty of forcible and unlawful detainer, thereby waiving all notice and
Lessor or its agents or servants may immediately or at any time thereafter
re-enter the Premises and use any necessary force to remove Lessee, its agents,
employees, servants and licensees, without being liable to indictment,
prosecution or damages herefore and may repossess and enjoy the Premises,
together with all additions, alterations and improvements.  Lessor shall also be
entitled to the benefits of all provisions of law respecting a speedy recovery
of land and tenements held over by Lessee, including proceedings in forcible
entry and unlawful detainer.

16.4  If the Premises are left vacant at any time during the term of this Lease
and any rent remains unpaid, then Lessor may, without terminating the Lease,
relet the whole or any part of said Premises for any unexpired period of time
during the term of this Lease, or longer, or from, time to time for shorter
periods, for any rental then obtainable, giving  such concessions of rent and
making such repairs and changes as may be reasonably required.  Lessee shall be
liable for the balance of the rent until the expiration of the Lease after being
given credit for any rent received.  Lessee shall be liable for all reasonable
expenses which Lessor may incur as a result of any default by Lessee, including
but not limited to the cost of enforcing the Lease, including attorneys' fees;
making good any default suffered by Lessee; doing any reasonably required
painting, altering or dividing of the Premises; combining the Premises with any
adjacent space for any new tenant; putting the same in proper repair; protecting
and preserving the Premises; and reletting the Premises, less any net rental
received from reletting.

16.5  If lessee should fail to remove all effects from the Premises upon
abandonment or upon termination of this Lease for any cause whatsoever, Lessor,
at its option, may remove such effects in any manner that it shall choose and
store them without liability to Lessee for loss or damage and Lessee agrees to
pay Lessor on demand any and all expenses incurred in such removal, including
all court costs and attorneys' fees and storage charges on such effects for any
length of time they shall be in Lessor's possession.  Lessor may, at its option,
in the alternative and without notice, sell said effects, at private sale and
without legal process and for such prices as Lessor may obtain and apply the
proceeds of such sale against any amounts due under this Lease from Lessee to
Lessor and against the expenses incident to the removal and sale of said
effects, rendering the surplus, if any, to Lessee.

16.6  Lessee acknowledges that late payments by Lessee to Lessor of rent will
cause Lessor to incur costs not contemplated by this Lease, the exact amount of
such cost being extremely difficult and impracticable for fix.  Such costs
include, without limitation, processing and accounting charges and late charges
that may be imposed upon Lessor by



the terms of any encumbrance and note secured by any encumbrance covering the
Premises.  Therefore, if any installment of rent due from Lessee is not received
by Lessor within ten (10) days of date due, Lessee shall pay Lessor either
$25.00 or 3% of the overdue payment, whichever shall be greater as a late fee.
In addition, Lessor may collect one tenth(1/10) of one(1) percent per day of any
amount more than thirty(30) days past due, from and after the thirtieth(30) day
payment is due. Such additional payment shall be due immediately upon demand by
Lessor.  The parties agree that this late Fee represents a fair and reasonable
estimate of the cost that Lessor will incur by reason of late payment by Lessee.
Acceptance of any late charge shall not constitute a waiver of Lessee's default
with respect to the overdue amount, or prevent Lessor from exercising any of the
other rights and remedies available to Lessor.

16.7  Any suit brought by Lessor to enforce the collection of any amount due
under this article for any one month shall not prejudice Lessor's right to
enforce the collection of any further amount due for any subsequent month.


If, after the expiration of the term of this Lease, Lessee shall remain in
possession of the leased Premises and continue to pay rent without a written
agreement as to such possession then Lessee shall be deemed to continue in
possession on a month-to-month tenancy.  The rental rate during such holdover
period shall be equivalent to the monthly rental rate paid during the previous
month; plus twenty-five percent (25%).  No holding over by Lessee shall operate
to renew or extend this Lease without the written consent of Lessor.


Subject to the terms of this Lease, Lessee, upon paying the Base Rent and
additional rent and performing the other terms, covenants and conditions of this
Lease, shall and may peaceably and quietly occupy and enjoy the Premises during
the term of this Lease.  Lessor shall warrant and defend Lessee in the quiet
enjoyment and possession of the Premises during the term of this Lease.


Tenant further agrees at any time and from time to time on or before ten(10)
days after written request by Landlord, to execute, acknowledge and deliver to
Landlord an estoppel certificate certifying (to the extent it believes the same
to be true) that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or if
there have been modifications, that the same is in full force and effect as
modified, and stating the modifications), that there have been no defaults
thereunder by Landlord or tenant (or if there have been defaults, setting forth
the nature thereof), the date to which the rent and other charges have been
paid, if any,



that Tenant claims no present charge, lien, claim or offset against rent, the
rent is not prepaid for more than one month in advance and such other matters as
may be reasonably required by Landlord, Landlord's mortgagee, or any potential
purchaser of the building, it being intended that any such statement delivered
pursuant to this Paragraph may be relied upon by any prospective purchaser of
all or any portion of Landlord's interest herein, or a holder of any mortgage or
deed of trust encumbering any portion of the Building Complex.  Tenant's failure
to deliver such statement within such time shall be a default under this Lease.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that tenant does not execute the
statement required by this Paragraph, Tenant hereby grants to Landlord a power
of attorney coupled with an interest to act as Landlord's attorney-in-fact for
the purpose of executing such statement or statements required by this


All notices, demands and requests which may be or are required to be given by
either party to the other shall be in writing.  Any such notice, demand or
request to be given to Lessee shall be deemed to have been properly given if
served on Lessee or an employee of Lessee or sent to Lessee by United States
Registered Mail, Return Receipt Requested, at Lessee's address set forth below
or such other place as Lessee may designate in a written notice to Lessor.  Any
such notice, demand or request to be given to Lessor shall be deemed to have
been properly given if served on Lessor or an employee of Lessor, or sent to
Lessor by United States Registered Mail, Return Receipt  Requested, at such
other place as Lessor may designate in a written notice to Lessee.  Any notice
given by  mailing shall be effective as of the date of  mailing as shown by the
receipt given.

                                              BOULDER, CO 80303



No delay or admission in the exercise of any right or remedy of Lessor on any
default by Lessee shall impair such a right or remedy or be construed as a
waiver.  Any waiver by Lessor of a default by Lessee must be in writing and
shall not be a waiver of any other present or future default concerning the same
or any other violation of the Lease.


In the event of any action or proceeding brought by either party against the
other under this Lease, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover for
the fees of its attorneys in



such action or proceeding, including costs of appeal, if any, such amount as the
court may adjudge reasonable as attorneys' fees.  In addition, should it be
necessary for Owner to employ legal counsel to enforce any of the provisions
herein contained, Tenant agrees to pay all attorneys' fees and court costs
reasonably incurred.

demonstrates to Landlord's reasonable satisfaction that such Hazardous Material
is necessary or useful to Tenant's business and will be used, kept and stored in
a manner that complies with all laws regulating any such Hazardous Materials so
brought upon or used or kept in or about the Premises).  If Tenant breaches the
obligations stated in the preceding sentence, or if the presence of Hazardous
Material on the Premises caused or permitted by Tenant results in contamination
of the Premises or Building Complex by Hazardous Material otherwise occurs for
which Tenant is legally liable to Landlord for damage resulting therefrom, then
Tenant shall indemnify, defend and hold Landlord, its agents, employees, legal
representatives, successors and assigns, harmless from any and all claims,
judgments, damages, penalties, fines, costs, liabilities, or losses(including,
without limitation, diminution in value of the Premises and Building Complex,
damages for the loss or restriction on use of any rentable or usable space or of
any amenity of  the Premises or Building Complex, damages arising from any
adverse impact on marketing of space in the Building, and sums paid in
settlement of claims, reasonable attorneys' fees, consultant fees and expert
fees) which arise during or after the Lease term as a result of such
contamination.  This indemnification of  Landlord by Tenant includes, without
limitation, such costs incurred in connection with any investigation of site
conditions or any cleanup, remedial, removal or restoration work required by any
federal, state, or local governmental agency or political subdivision because of
Hazardous Material present in or about the Building Complex or the soil or
ground water on or under the Building complex.  Without limiting the foregoing,
if the presence of any Hazardous Material on or about the Building Complex
caused or permitted by Tenant results in any contamination of any portion
thereof, Tenant shall promptly take all actions at its sole expense as are
necessary to return the Building Complex  to the condition existing prior to the
introduction of any such Hazardous Material, subject to obtaining Landlord's
prior written consent to the actions to be taken by Tenant.  Landlord may
properly require its consent to the selection of the contractors and other
experts involved in the inspection, testing and removal or abatement activities,
the scope of activities to be performed, the manner and method for performance
of such activities and such other matters as may be required or requested by
Landlord for the safety of and continued use of the Building Complex and all

and any substance or material if defined or designated as hazardous or toxic
substance, or other similar term, by any federal, state or local law, statute,
regulation, or ordinance affecting the Building Complex or Premises presently in
effect or that may be promulgated in the future, as such statutes, regulations
and ordinances may be amended from time to time.

24.3  In the event Tenant caused or permits Hazardous Material to be brought
upon, kept or used in or about the Premises, with or without Landlord's consent,
Landlord shall be entitled to have an environmental audit performed at
reasonable intervals during the term, in Landlord's reasonable judgment, the
reasonable costs and expense of which shall be paid by Tenant.

State of Colorado.  Any dispute resulting in litigation shall be resolved in

shall to any extent be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of the Lease or
the application of such term, covenant or condition to persons or circumstances
other than those to which it has been held invalid or unenforceable shall not be
affected and each term, covenant and condition of this Lease shall be valid and
shall be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.

              Months 49-60                            $7,255.15 per month

          clearly defined as the earlier of the day that the premises are
          substantially completed or the day a "certificate of occupancy" is
          issued by the City of Boulder Building Department.

          Lessor grants lessee the option to renew this lease for one (1) 
          additional term of five (5) years, Provided the Lessee has been in 
          good standing and has not been in default under the terms of this 
          Lease. Lessee must notify Lessor 120 days prior to the expiration 
          date of this lease of their intent to renew. Lessee's rental 
          payment shall be adjusted during the option at the then current 
          fair market value.

          Both Lessor and Lessee agree to terminate the Lease dated July 25, 
          1995 between Diana Wilkins and Renaissance Entertainment 
          Corporation for 4440 Arapahoe Suite 102 by mutual consent. The

          Provided that Lessee has been in good standing and has not been in
          default under the terms and conditions of this Lease, Lessor hereby
          grants Lessee the right of first refusal to Lease any contiguous and
          adjacent space for the purposes of expansion as it becomes available
          on the second floor of the Building upon the terms and conditions set
          forth by the Lessor. Lessee shall have 72 hours from receipt of
          written notice to  accept the space. Lessee's failure to provide
          written acceptance within the time allowed shall be deemed rejection
          of the space and/or waiver of this right.
