Halyna Hutchins – the latest film set tragedy

The BBC is rightly focusing on Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer who died when reporting the incident involving Alec Baldwin and a prop gun in the latest tragedy on a film set.

It adds to the death of Sarah Jones, a Camera Assistant on Midnight Rider back in 2014, UK Camera Operator Mark Milsome (as covered here recently) and Brandon Lee (son of Bruce Lee) who died in a similar incident to the one that resulted in Halyna’s death.

I’ve seen a few emails from Armourers in the union about the incident and the obvious consensus is that we need to wait upon the results of a full inquiry before speculating as to the cause.
