A Note re unauthorized posting of Jem's films on Youtube, bit-torrent sites, etc. While we can understand why people would view and post films on the internet that are otherwise unavailable, unofficial internet versions are often low quality, poorly excerpted, in the wrong formats, marred by ads, and creating profits only for major corporations, etc.
PLEASE DO NOT POST WORK ON THE INTERNET WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION. In the case of readily available films, please support an independent filmmaker and his independent distributors by buying or renting the films. It will look much better, and will help Jem and these organizations keep doing their work. Please be thoughtful and considerate!
A note re FORMATS: although many of Jem's films were shot on film they are, with rare exception, distributed via video tape, digital file, dvd, blu-ray, or DCP.
