Film Veteran Presented Workshop in Honor of Sarah Jones
Douglas C. Hart, a respected camera technician in the film industry, agrees that safety on film sets must be improved.
Hart presented a a free public workshop at Trident Tech last month. He literally wrote the book on working as a camera assistant. His textbook, “The Camera Assistant: A Complete Professional Handbook,” is used by film students at Trident Tech and at other colleges around the country.
In a meeting with TTC film students and in the workshop, Hart focused on safety as well as many other aspects of working in the industry, including camera mechanics, on-set procedures, lenses and filters, and screen tests.
On Saturday, Nov. 8, the Charleston International Film Festival and South Carolina Film Council will be hosting an event to honor the memory of Sarah Jones.
Celebrating Sarah will be held 3-6 pm at Prohibition on the 8th. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door and includes two drink vouchers and heavy appetizers.
Event proceeds will fund a film scholarship at TTC.
