A Pledge to Sarah

Sarah Elizabeth Jones

Sarah Elizabeth Jones, 27, was a native of West Columbia, South Carolina, born September 22, 1986. She lived in Atlanta, Georgia where she worked as a Camera Assistant on many TV and film projects. A graduate of Brookland Cayce High School and the College of Charleston, Sarah finished her formal education with a major in Media Communications and a minor in Film Studies.

Sarah began her film career while interning on the set of Army Wives, a popular TV show. With her spunk and determination, she continued to climb the ranks of the film industry, quickly finding a passion in the art of Cinematography. She was a loyal and respected member of the International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE Local 600).

From the heights of the mountains she hiked to the depths of the oceans she dove (and never without a camera to record her experiences), the gift of her presence was felt far and wide. Sarah had an energy that was infectious and kind. Although her physical being is no longer beside us, her smile and her love of life will forever transcend in all the lives of those she touched.

Sarah lost her earthly life on February 20, 2014 near Savannah, GA, doing the job she loved. While nothing will ever bring her back it is our sincere hope that Sarah's memory will inspire us all to be safe and vigilant, and that all crew-members will speak up about safety issues before they go too far.
