So we’ve gotten a few requests since the Midnight Rider incident to make a public statement about the whole ordeal. It is well known that the loss of Sarah Jones’ life was unnecessary and avoidable. We would just like to comment that while it may not have been a rig specifically that caused the accident, it easily could have been. When you are working on set you need to know the limits of not only your gear, but of yourself. Say no when you have to, it’s as simple as that.
Stay safe folks. Don’t let this whole thing pass without any changes being made. We work in our industry because we love to do it, but don’t forget you’re worth more than any piece of gear out there. Don’t let any producers or anyone else convince you that the show is more important.

"Gaffer told me I needed to alter the previous days nook light setup and add an extra light. Since I couldn’t mount them side by side (double shadows) I had to get creative.
I’d like to add that this is 15 feet up above a shed and the only thing I could mount on was a window ledge and a small copper pipe.”
