Film Crews Pushing to Honor One of Their Own
If you’re watching the Oscars tonight and happen to see people wearing pink ribbons, here’s why.
There is a push to help honor a camera assistant named Sarah Jones who was killed on a film set in Georgia last month.
She was helping film the movie “Midnight Rider” when she was struck and killed by a freight train. There has been debate over whether the film crew had permission to film on the railway tracks and whether safety measures were adequate are being questioned as well.
There has been a petition to get Jones added to the “In Memoriam” segment of the Oscars, but so far, it doesn’t look like she will be.
Do you think film crews go too far when they risk their own lives for shooting movies? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
