Officials at the Cinematographers Guild are planning a candlelight memorial for tragic assistant Sarah Jones.

The camera assistant lost her life when she was hit by a train while filming Allman Brothers biopic Midnight Rider in Georgia last month (Feb14), and now there are special plans to honour the 27 year old.

Members of the International Cinematographers Guild are staging a walk and vigil in Hollywood on Friday (07Mar14).

Jones' grieving parents, Elizabeth and Richard, will attend.

Meanwhile, Icg president Steven Poster has issued a statement about the tragedy. It reads: "I hope that the lesson the industry takes from this awful tragedy is that there can be no short cuts in the workplace. A person's life is infinitely more important than a production's schedule or budget. Safety has to be the number one priority in our industry."

The Society of Camera Operators is also planning a tribute to Jones on Saturday (08Mar14).
