Jem Schofield is the founder of theC47, an online and offline educational resource focused on teaching the craft of video production and filmmaking (with production based workshops taught throughout the United States and abroad). He is a producer, director, DP & educator and also runs The Filmmaker’s Intensive, a desitination based program that focuses on the art & science of documentary & narrative filmmaking.

For the past 19 years his production company, Buttons Productions, has produced projects for an ever expanding client base. Clients include AbelCine, Apple, Inc., Canon U.S.A. Inc., Cineo Lighting, EMI, MAC Group, Manfrotto, Motley Fool, The New York Times, NPR, Quiet Revolution, Scottish Enterprise, TED, Tiffen, Westcott, YouTube & Zeiss.

He's determined to update the Buttons Productions web site one day in the future (right now it's like an Internet relic that is there for posterity), but he'll probably just post stuff on theC47.com instead.

Jem is also a educational content creator and design consultant to many equipment manufacturers in the film and television industry. He has worked with companies such as MAC Group (Sekonic, Tenba and Benro), Tiffen (Lowel, Domke), and Manfrotto on the development of future products for the video and film industry. Most recently he has been working with the FJ Westcott company where he designed theC47 DP & Book Light Kits based on their new Scrim Jim Cine products. He has also produced over seventy in-depth educational videos for Canon U.S.A.'s Digital Learning Center Web Site and YouTube Channel (see "TUTORIAL VIDEOS" section of the sidebar on this web site).
