Sarah Jones' Death Highlights Dangers Crew Members Face on Set | Slate for Sarah | Scoop.it
Sarah Elizabeth Jones, 27, lost her life last week when she was struck and killed by a train while working as a second camera assistant on the new Greg Allman biopic "Midnight Rider." Now film and TV productions are honoring her memory.
Fernando Moreno's insight:

Her death has brought attention to the studio's just how dangerous working on a film shoot is. Some people get in the mind set that they  must do anything for the shot and at times do not realize that your life might be in danger, sadly it actually takes a horrible accident for people to realize it.

'Midnight Rider' Accident: Sarah Jones' Family Hires Attorney as Lawsuit Looms
Hollywood Reporter
Sarah Jones. A month after Sarah Jones was killed on the set of Midnight Rider: The Gregg Allman Story, her parents have hired an attorney.
Fernando Moreno's insight:

The question of who is accountable is now underway. It is the job of the producer to make sure that every aspect of the film is covered and safe. Is that who the blame should be on? Or should the blame be on someone in the studio who would not put up more money to close the railroad down for a few hours? These questions will be answered once as the investigation continues.

Fernando Moreno's insight:

I think that people do not realize how much work goes into making a film. If your not famous actor or the director of the movie it seems like you get passed up for any kind of recognition. I am glad that people are fighting for her to get an Oscar honor.

Campaign Calls For Crew Boycott As ‘Midnight Rider’ Heads To L.A. For Pre-Prod

Campaign Calls For Crew Boycott As ‘Midnight Rider’ Heads To L.A. For Pre-Prod | Slate for Sarah | Scoop.it
Crew around Los Angeles are getting word that pre-production on Midnight Rider is starting up in a few weeks back in L.A. with Randall Miller at the helm.
Fernando Moreno's insight:

Although it is probably too soon to just jump back into production after a tragedy like this, it seems a bit disrespectful toward the life loss in the production. Personally I as an aspiring filmmaker I would want them to finish what they had started, If I believed in something enough to commit my time and efforts, I would want it finished. I am not saying that's what should happen, I do think it would be inappropriate to start up production again without asking the family and friends if it is alright.
