Jude sent a message to Jeffrey J. Clarke CEO, Eastman Kodak Company – email address that said:
Dear Mr. Clarke,
Thank you and Kodak so much for your beautiful short film "Understanding" which I just saw on the Huffington Post website. Your message of love and inclusion means so much to me as a gay man, especially in these troubled times.
You and all the folks at Kodak demonstrated what I love about my country. You make me see again how wonderful our country is.
I know you are a busy man, so I'll just wish you and everyone at Kodak a Happy New Year.
All the best,
