On Thursday actor Alec Baldwin shot dead the Director of Photography on the set of “Rust” in New Mexico.
The victim was later identified as Halyna Hutchins.
The BBC reported:
Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer who died when actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on a film set, has been remembered as “an incredible artist”.
Hutchins had been working as director of photography on the set of Rust.
American Cinematographer magazine had named her one of its rising stars in 2019, and she previously worked on 2020 independent superhero film Archenemy.
Archenemy director Adam Egypt Mortimer told BBC News the fact she had died on a set was “really unbelievable”.
He said: “Halyna was an incredible artist who was just starting a career I think people were really starting to notice.
“The fact that she would be killed on a set in an accident like this is unfathomable. It just seems inconceivable.”
