In memory of Sarah Jones, who lost her life a week ago on set due to the terrible decisions of a production team, we are focusing on Safety & Awareness On Set. All of the IFN chapters will be talking about this subject in March. Sarah was a camera assistant from Atlanta who was killed on the set of 'Midnight Rider" a Gregg Allman biopic. Taking shortcuts with safety gets people killed. Please join us for an important roundtable discussion.

The meeting will be held Tuesday March 11th at 7:00PM, at the Hamilton 16 IMAX.

Our usual open networking session will take place after the discussion. All who have an interest in film are encouraged to attend.

During the recent Super Bowl, Doritos held a contest which would allow the winner to air a Doritos commercial of their creation during the Super Bowl XLI broadcast.

Contestants were asked to make one or more thirty second commercials and submit them online. From the 1,066 entries, Doritos chose sixteen finalists. They then narrowed the field down to eight finalists and then five.

With the help of some IFN members and other talented people from the Indiana production community, the Herbert Brothers of Batesville submitted two commercials, titled "Ultimatum" and "Duct Tape." Both made the top eight! "Duct Tape" then made it into the top five!

Over the next couple of months, Doritos will be airing the top five commercials (including "Duct Tape") on various channels.

You can view the commercials online at:

Congratulations to everyone involved in creating both of these top notch commercials.
